Last Night’s Party

Before I say anything about last night’s skull church event first I want to say happy birthday to my amazing four year old daughter Lenya! She is a sweet, funny and wonderful girl and I am so thankful for her. I took the day off today so we could spend celebrate as a family and she gave me permission to shoot off this little blog and share what great things we saw God do last night.

Every time we gather on the first Wednesday of the month for the explicit purpose of evangelism it is awesome to watch hearts respond to the gospel, but as September’s event approached there there seemed to be an extraordinary sense of excitement. This makes sense because in just over a week we will be taking skull church on the road for the first time! (details hereAnd we couldn’t possibly be any more fired up about bringing the good news to Missoula, Montana.

The skull church band sang all original songs that they have never performed before. I can’t wait for their forthcoming album to drop! And we had special guest music from Bellarive. They are a newer band from Florida that you need to give a listen if you haven’t yet. Their sound is very creative, and dynamic. Kind of a melodic-rock approach to worship. They were even better in person than I expected, and that’s saying a lot because I really dig their EP.
I gave a message called RSVP from Matthew 22 about how Jesus has given us all an invitation to go to heaven but we have to respond. We saw 32 people do just that, making professions of faith in Christ!

Amazing. Please keep the Missoula event in prayer as it is upon us in just 8 days. And pray for the LA Harvest Crusade at Dodger Stadium that is this Saturday. (it will be streaming live online here and broadcasting on fresh life radio as well) I will be hosting the event and then speaking for Pastor Greg Laurie on Sunday morning at Harvest. Pastor Don McClure will be coming to speak at fresh life while I am away. He is such a rock star and a man of God. I am so thankful for him and can’t wait to hear the podcast!

Here is a little photo look book to give you a glimpse of what we saw God do last night.
