Stinkin’ Cool Pastor Alert: Scott Wilson at the Oaks
We just had a crazy worship night last night. Wow. I feel beat up, yet happy! (I can see why God is gonna give us resurrection bodies to worship him in heaven). The crazy thing is that we had over 400 people join us live online (isn’t that crazy?) But, right before I got to hang with a stinkin cool pastor named Scott Wilson from a great church called the Oaks. Obviously, many of you know that I’m a real nerd when it comes to the science of church health. I’m constantly writing essays and books on church governance and church systems (In fact, check out my backstage pass if you’ve never seen them… http://www.substancechurch.com/backstage-pass/) But last night I met another method nerd in Scott Wilson. His church has been rockin it for some time. (Of course it helps when you have Shane and Shane along with Bethany Dillon to lead worship). But, as I’m reading his book, Steering Through Chaos, Scott is no slouch. In fact, leaders, if you’re looking for a great book on vision, this is the deal!
Which, speaking of vision, get ready because I’m going to be sharing a critical church update during our Deeper teaching night on Tuesday March 9th! Of course we’ll record it and live stream it; but, as many of you know: We’re adding a 5th service to accommodate our crowds! We’ve been at capacity at our Northwestern campus for several months. But we’re finally ready to add another service. But, this is only one of the exciting changes. We have some inspiring plans for our small groups and discipleship processes. So make sure your ears are open this coming month!
In the meantime, I love you guys! Keep serving and seeking the Lord with all your hearts!
