I just got home from a very cool dinner with all of our Dream Team members. This completes an incredibly busy last few weeks. I am kind of glad we only turn 1 once!
Our Senior Pastor (and my brother, in case you hadn't figured it out yet..) Greg Surratt came up and gave a great talk on why he started Seacoast Church, and why we do what we do. Lost people matter to God. It's that simple. We will never deviate from our original focus - to reach lost people and turn them into fully devoted followers of Christ. The methods may have changed a little over the years, but never the message.
It's kind of cool to sit there and know that you are a part of something bigger than yourself. We will never have enough volunteers. We will never have enough children's workers. We will never have enough paid staff; because we are called to win the world. That's something worth signing up for.
