I think sometimes as pastors, we get so caught up in the whirlwind of making church happen each week, that we never make the time to step back and look at what God is actually doing.
In anticipation of our one year anniversary this Sunday, I have been meeting with a few people in our church to find out what God has done in their lives during their time at Seacoast. It has blown me away. I had no idea how much God has changed their entire existence. We talk about reaching the unchurched, uncommitted, unconvinced; but until you hear the actual stories, I don't think you know the true meaning.
I would encourage every pastor to have at least one conversation this week with someone growing in your church. That's why you're doing what you're doing.
