last night’s party

Happy Cinco De Mayo!

I am writing this blog while on the way to Missoula, Montana where we are meeting with a group of local pastors and casting the vision for a two night skull church event that we are planning for September of this year. The event will be held at the Wilma Theater which is a killer venue.

As I write my heart is full of joy over what we saw God do last night at the skull church event, in the Flathead Valley, for the month of May. The weather was beautiful and that was definitely a blessing for the hundreds of people that formed a line wrapping around the block long before the doors opened.

The skull church band was in rare form (as always) and I especially loved when they played the song Someday that Kevin wrote. With these lyrics:

“So we wait
for you to break the clouds
show your face
with ours laid on the ground
hear Your voice
calling out our names
to rise and sing
the song of the redeemed”

It dovetailed with the message perfectly. I gave a message called The End is Near which was all about the 2nd Coming of Jesus Christ. There are over 1,845 references to Jesus’ return in Scripture. If the Bible teaches anything it teaches that Jesus is going to come back.

We were also pumped to have music by Phil Wickham and his talented band. I have been friends with Phil for a long time and he is one of my favorite artists out there. His sound is huge and his heart is even bigger. The room was charged with electricity during both sets and the after party was a taste of heaven. This is the third time we have had Phil out to Montana to play and I already look forward to the next time. If you don’t have any of his music, buy it here.

In addition to those there in person, people tuned in to our webcast from all over the country and even outside of the country. Best of all, we saw 47 people make decisions for Christ! It is always amazing to watch people turn their lives over to God. Every one of those people has a story and God has plans to use them in huge ways.

Here are a few more snapshots to give you a glimpse of what we saw God do last night.
