My First Conference

I'm excited to say that I will be attending my first conference in mid April. Elevate 2009 is were I am headed. This is to equip leaders to take their church to the next level. I didn't really think of myself as any kind of leader or staff. But my pastor must, he is the one that invited me personally. I'm trying to think of how exactly I got to this point. I wasn't asked to be apart of the staff, nor did I ask to be apart of it. I just jumped in and kind of made my own way. I got sick of sitting on the side lines looking like some fool not willing to work.

Right now I'm learning to run the computer (power point) during worship time. This is a little nerve racking for me. Leaving part of the service in my hands...shivers run down my spine. I try not to think of failure even though it pokes it's ugly head out at me once in a while. I now in my heart that I will get this down just as I have anything else. At first I might be as smooth as gravel but I will work out the bumps

Leaders aren't always paid. Could you imagine what would happen if all the great volunteers like yourself just took the week off? It would look something like this...

Keep up the great work for the Kingdom!
