I Can't Believe This is Happening...

I never thought I would blog, not because I don't have anything to say (I've never been short on opinions or thoughts), but because I am incredibly fearful of the "celebrity" status that is given to pastors who lead great churches in this day. This is definitely not about me. But through reading "Tribes" by Seth Godin, God convicted me that I should not be shrinking away from the opportunity to influence those that I diligently serve. The apostle Paul also said, "Follow me as I follow Christ."

God is doing something amazing here at The Pursuit. I can't deny it. I certainly don't want to hide it. He continues to assemble an amazing team of people. We have an incredible staff and a growing core of people who seem to be willing to do whatever it takes to keep reaching the Treasure Valley. My desire to "fly under the radar" so to speak has to be set aside in order to be the leader God has made me to be.

So, for the glory of God and the fulfillment of the vision that God has given The Pursuit, here we go...
