I am excited that this Sunday Chris Breslin will return to the Gathering Church as a guest speaker. Chris is the Lead Pastor of Oak Church which was started two years ago as a church plant of our church.
Oak has taken root in the Lakewood community and has become a vital part of what God is doing there. The Gathering Church has assisted Oak by providing the financial support for Chris’ position. It has been a great investment.
Chris and Rachel became part the Gathering Church at the very beginning while Chris was attending Duke Divinity School. Chris became a pastoral intern for the church and was later brought on full-time and ordained. He provided the backbone of much that happened in the church and we have missed him. But we are excited to see how God has used him to establish something that is solid in Lakewood.
He will be speaking from Revelation 21:1-7, a perfect passage the Sunday before the National Election. It never hurts to once again see God’s ultimate vision for our lives and for what He has created.
I will be attending the Marked Men for Christ Conference, serving on staff. Steve Coil, Dave Rogers and Andy Lipford will also be serving from our church. Please pray that God will give us insight, wisdom and grace as we serve those who are attending.
I will look forward to seeing you the Sunday After.
Remember who we are in Christ:Priests called to serve God and Others.
