Monday Morning Mind Dump…

mind dump

  • This is one of those Monday’s that pastors love.
  • The middle of a good but challenging season in your church.
  • God is moving, we’re seeing lives changed and people getting saved.
  • But that brings challenges, good challenges.
  • Mike DeAlto did an awesome job yesterday continuing our Prayer series.
  • He took on the hard topic of prayer and spiritual warfare and did great.
  • It was also cool to announce his new job and how he will help us engage the city of Tucson more in practical ways.
  • Can’t wait for that to happen.
  • I’m thankful we have a team that is willing to admit what their passions are so they can best serve the church and the city instead of worrying about what that means for them personally.
  • Mike has shown that heart in some incredible ways over the last month.
  • Can’t wait for our next series: You & Me: Being Single, Falling in Love & Staying Married.
  • Always love talking about relationships, identity, loneliness and everything that goes into dating and marriage.
  • I let Gavin fill out a march madness bracket.
  • It’s been fun watching basketball with him.
  • Ironically, he’s in 2nd place and I’m in 10th.
  • He’s loving that too.
  • Awesome to see Arizona doing so good.
  • We announced that for the sake of clarity we are changing the names of our ministries at Revolution.
  • They will be RevCommunities (RC’s), RevKids, RevStudents.
  • We had a staff party last night with everyone on staff at Revolution and their spouses.
  • I’m reminded after being a part of some unhealthy teams (that never hung out together) how cool it is to be a part of a team that spends time together, enjoys it and laughs together.
  • I don’t think enough church staffs do that.
  • I’m not sure pastors and church planters know how to build teams or be a part of teams.
  • Not sure which it is.
  • Our church, along with Pantano and Christian family care is putting together the Empowered to Connect simulcast in Tucson on April 10-11.
  • In my opinion, this is the best parenting advice and information out there.
  • The best.
  • Stay tuned for details.
  • Watched Birdman over the weekend.
  • It was good but now I have no idea what makes a movie win best picture of the year.
  • Started reading a book over the weekend that every church planter should read: The Entrepreneur Roller Coaster: Why Now Is the Time to #Join the Ride
  • So good.
  • We have an RC leader meeting tonight.
  • We’re talking about how to develop leaders in our RevCommunities.
  • Love these leaders and their passion for our church and the people they lead.
  • Time to get back to it…
