What a day! We had two great services at The Journey today both at the West and Providence Campuses. The message today is one that I believe is vital to the Savage Generation and church at large. We have to be people who follow the Holy Spirit in our lives. I think a question worth asking on here that I asked today is: if you removed the Holy Spirit from your theology or belief, would it change anything about your faith? We have to quit reducing our faith to a handful of dogmas and theological beliefs and begin embracing the mystery and adventurous side of faith. This only happens when we follow the Spirit of God as He leads us.
Also, this is the official announcement: we are relocating our West Campus to Lebanon into a permanent facility! We are so excited about what opportunities we believe this presents us. We hope this serves as a hub for launching new campuses in the future, planting new churches, hosting conferences, and many other things. We see unlimited possibilities for mission out of this building. With it being located across from Cumberland University we believe it strategically places us in position to have influence on that campus. We also have the chance to minister to some lower-income neighborhoods and believe this is too often a neglected aspect of the local church.
Greater things are yet to come. We are so excited about what God is going to do through the Journey Church now and in the days ahead. I'm so proud to be a part of a church that has responded to the door God opened for us with radical obedience and following the Spirit as He moves us forward. I'm honored to be the pastor of such a church.
