New Wrinkle?

No... not on my face...although those seem to pop up all the time...lol

I got a call from our assoc. pastor yesterday. He asked me if I wanted to take a position on one of the committee's at church.

Guess which one? ;o)

ok, if you can't guess it's the Commission on Missions. I would be the Vice Chair, move up to Co-Chair next year then Chair it the following year.

The thought is that they are trying to take the church in a new direction with missions. Get us more involved...globally.

We have an amazing out reach for the homeless in our city, as well as for the kids in the area that live in transient homes. We are a resort city, and the homeless seem to congregate on the ocean front. It will be interesting to get more educated about how that program works.

The wrinkle is that I just started my class on how to start your own non-profit. I did learn a ton just in the first class. This opportunity with the church could be a good thing, a good starting point. It will give me the opportunity to work with the committee, work on all aspects of mission work, and perhaps make some good contacts.

Plus I will have a whole church at my disposal...LOL

I am still praying about it. Of course if I get into it and God says...'Hey! Not a good idea'... I can end the process.

I have so many ideas, and I love the thought of getting our church involved globally! Think of the ripples we could create?!

Still praying. Still asking God for His direction. Thank you for your prayers as well. ;o)

Have a Better than Good day!!!

Cool, Andrea! Your pastor certainly knows your heart, doesn't he? Seems like a natural fit, but of course, seek the Lord and His will.

He'll show you.

I'll pray that you'll have a clear answer.

Blessings,
Laura

Oh I would LOVE to come and visit your warm shores. We actually used to live in Richmond. Still have a house there. I MISS the warm weather. Maybe some day I'll visit you :)
