Yesterday Shawn Allen and I had the opportunity to meet up with the Bledsoe Baptist Association leader and talk about the vision of the Journey. He is the director of all baptist churches in Sumner, Trousdale, and Macon Counties. We discussed our dreams of what could happen in Hartsville and he was absolutely fired up. He is going to make resources available to us (financial, administrative, training, etc.).
We are continuing to find many doors opening as we seek accomplish the mission God has given us. We are getting closer to having some details ironed out concerning timing, strategy, and meeting locations and times. Stay tuned for more details.
Question for feedback: Would you prefer the new campuses be called The Journey or would you be open/more inclined to them being called something else (exp: Hartsville Community Church)? Or do you not care one way or the other? I'd love to get your thoughts.
