C3 On the Road – Myrtle Beach

Posted on April 22, 2008

Myrtle Beach has always held a special place in my heart. It's where Lisa and I used to go with our friends during high school. I remember the big time was "First Week at the Beach."  We always spent the first week of summer break there, and we have some special memories from those years.Well, we're heading back to Myrtle Beach on April 28! And this time I think it's going to be even better, because we're going for C3 On the Road. ...

'Go To' Phrases

Posted on April 19, 2008

Have you ever noticed how certain people are remembered for their 'go to' phrases? Take Dick Vitale, the college basketball guru. He always says, "Yeah, baby!" Well one of the things I love to do is observe different speakers and leaders in the church. And it's fascinating to me to see how often these guys go to their 'go to' phrases.     Rob Bell - "" and "Are we trackin'?   &nb...

Wave After Wave

Posted on April 15, 2008

Our leadership team is still recovering from the loss of Vanessa Whitwell, who served our staff for nearly a decade. Wherever you turn at Fellowship you see her thumbprint on something. During her funeral last week I shared a story about a time her and her husband Andy travelled with Lisa and me to Hawaii. One afternoon we were swimming on this beach. And the waves crashing in were tsunami size. Only in Hawaii can you get waves the size that we ...

One Prayer

Posted on April 14, 2008

But not only is prayer something that has helped us through the last week, it’s also the topic of a revolutionary movement our church and many other churches will experience this summer through One Prayer. Everyone is talking these days about video venues. That’s the buzz around the nation and the ...

She Will Be Missed

Posted on April 7, 2008

Last night one of the key leaders of Fellowship Church graduated from this life to the next. And she has gone home to be with the Lord. Vanessa Whitwell was a dear friend and a phenomenally talented young woman. It's staggering to think of all the lives she touched and influenced. As I think about Vanessa's life, she definitely had a larger than life personality. I think about John 10:10 where Jesus said, "I have come that they may have ...

Flashback, Fast Forward

Posted on March 31, 2008

Go with me back to two weeks ago ... Easter. I didn't expect it to be as powerful or as impactful as it was. Why? It was right in the middle of Spring Break. And then, to pile it on, the Sweet Sixteen was on! Yet, I was shocked at what God did at Fellowship Church! I had the opportunity to speak at all of our campuses live and see each campus thriving. Talk about a whirlwind tour! But looking back, I can't help but look forward. Easter is an ...
