We just had our first Leaders Meeting for 2014. Met with with some of our ministry volunteers and leaders. We simply gave updates about where we are at as a church. The past months were like a whirlwind, things happened so fast and we figured out it would be best to get everyone on the same page and make sure everyone’s on the right track. We finally cascaded the system my we worked so hard on the past weeks. I also introduced the new guys on working on new roles in the church. I sensed a deep love for this spiritual family my wife and I share our lives with. I reiterated that awhile ago’s meeting was more like a “family discussion” than a leaders meeting. It is such a great privilege to serve the Lord alongside fiery and passionate, and loving and dedicated men and women such as this home church of mine.
Our local church is unique in a sense that we have a good number of folks from different nations joining us in our Sunday gatherings. We have some Americans, Koreans, Australians, South American attending our church. On this blog, Brenton Butler writes about his thoughts about their family’s move to Dumaguete from Australia. Brenton and his wife Sarah have been good friends of ours in church since they joined us earlier this year.
