When we opened the Romeoville campus of Community Christian Church it was like a Deja Vu moment for me. I remember thinking I have been here before and I have done this before. Then I realized that since the beginning days of planning for that campus, I had envisioned what it would be like to be hanging out there watching people find their way back to God, so when it happened, it felt like Deja Vu.
This week, I expect another Deja Vu moment. On Tuesday we will be in Kansas City for the North American Christian Convention. It was well over a year ago when Dave Ferguson and others met to begin planning for the convention. Out of their meetings the idea of having the convention as a platform for a church to be planted were born. And because of those ideas and plans Troy and I are 18 days away from relocating to Kansas City to add our leadership to the already great mix of leaders in Kansascityland believing God is orchestrating a movement for many to find their way back to God.
When I first learned about the idea of the convention and the church plant, I knew immediately that it was going to be Troy who would lead this. (long story for another time) I imagined the convention and what it would be like. I've seen this moment in my head lots of times...and it's a good one.
I like Deja Vu...with a few surprises thrown in of course.
