We got back Sunday night from our long weekend in Gatlinburg. It was very weird to not be in church on Sunday morning, but I knew our service was in great hands with the staff. The decision to have Sunday as my last day of the trip instead of the first day was very valuable. I usually miss one Sunday a year just in case you think I am slacking - ha!
This morning I watched the vans load at 5:30 a.m. with teenagers on their way to Florida. The youth group's summer trip to Florida is one of the most important things the church does all year. Our teenagers are challenged spiritually, and its a great time for them to bond with both their leaders and each other. One of my dear friends, Clay Baggat, will be our camp speaker. Clay was a very successful youth pastor, and he is now the lead pastor of Living to Go Church in Goodlettsville. You can learn more about Clay 's personality by listening to our "Conversations" podcast titled "Rebellious PK." In your prayers, let's pray for a spiritual breakthrough in our teenagers that will ignite our church and community. God can do this! Let's believe for more than hype - let's believe for a revolution to start with our kids.
