–>Great traffic on the blog this week, and thanks for the zillion comments. It's great to see people get excited about a shared vision!
I had a meeting last night at my house with about 20 potential Connexus leaders who were meeting for the first time and it was amazing! People are so stoked, and so excited about what God is going to do next. There was a sense of God's presence in this shared vision that was overpowering at times. The commitment level appears to be huge, and the passion is contagious. Wish you could have all been there.
Wait…you can be. That's what this quick update is about.
I can't fit everyone in my house (trust me, it's way too small). But I can host you at the Galaxy Cinemas this weekend and next.
Back for a quick thought on my Sunday post about the critical launch meetings this Saturday October 20th at 10:00 a.m. at the Galaxy in Barrie and next Saturday, the 27th, at 10:00 a.m. at the Galaxy in Orillia and why you need to be there.
We want you to be at these meetings because it's the only way to communicate right now, and we need to start building a team for launch weekend right now. And launch is less than seven weeks away.
I just want to make it clear that given the way events finally unfolded over the last week, Connexus will launch as an entirely new church. That means we don't have a data base because it means that, out of respect, we can't use a data base from our former ministry. So we can't call you, email you, or sign you up for anything unless you identify yourself and share your intentions. That's why we need you there this Saturday or next. We'll clearly outline the plan to launch Connexus and take questions. Plus, it will be your chance to sign up and serve and more. This is our two weekend opportunity to build our team for launch.
So if you're not there, we wouldn't know that you'll be part of our launch team. And so many of you have told us privately how excited you are about this vision and how much you want to be a part of it. We just need you to be there to jump in in person (and for those of you still not sure, hey, just come and kick the tires. That's okay too — nobody's going to pressure you into anything!)
So…we just invite everybody to make time for one hour to be there. Remember to tell your friends who want to be part of Connexus about the meetings, and now you can tell them in no uncertain terms why this is a "no miss" meeting. See you then, I hope.
