The Gathering (afterthoughts)

I enjoyed my time at the Gathering. Here are some highlights:
  • Putting a couple pieces together in my head for how our process of moving students will work in our context. It's finally coming together for me.
  • Hearing Buddy Owens talk about the need to maintain our own intimacy with God before serving others. Sounds basic enough, but I need to remember that daily.
  • Connecting with a handful of youth pastors that helped me focus some of my thoughts on evangelism and our front door program in our ministry.
  • Getting to spend some time talking to Jake Rutenbar (former sorta blogger) about what's going on at the Saddleback San Clemente campus. I'm excited for how God's using him there.
