I knew churches could do this…

  There’s lots of reasons I love Faith Church in Dyer (and Cedar Lake and Valpo).  Two things top the list: the way they draw people to Jesus and a growing friendship with their pastor, Bob Bouwer.

Every church has their uniqueness, but since we have a common mission I know there is incredible power in collaborating.  And after a great meeting with Bob and our worship guys today, we have cool plan for this summer.

All the details are coming together, but this much I can share…

In a teaching series this June called “One Prayer” we are going to do a message series together.  The concept is based on Jesus Prayer in John 17 where he prayed for all Christ-followers: May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.  Jesus knew what too many churches forget…that when we all work together, then we have our best chance for our world hearing about God’s love.

For one week, I’ll go teach at Faith and Bob will teach here at Suncrest.  We’re exploring how we can tackle a local/regional initiative and one global initiative together also. Together, our churches have campuses in 5 Northwest Indiana locations and we both have partnerships in Africa, so I can’t wait to see how it comes together.

  1. Great job. You beat me to the pass. I will do the same at my blog Friday. See you next week.

  2. I admit that it appears that the Cubs have “No Prayer” but I remind you that we believe in miracles and that dead things can rise. Have a great weekend.

    • wait just a second – as of yesterday – they won 4 in a row – and they are back above 500 – there is always a prayer for the Cubbies!! 🙂
