My little brother, Jordan, is planting a new church in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas. I am very excited for him, as I believe his spiritual gifts suit him very well for church planting. Here is the link to the project... Wellspring Church of Walnut Ridge, Arkansas.
I particularly like Wellspring's vision statement:
"We will proudly become known as a ragtag collection of surrendered and transformed people who love God and others. We are mesmerized by the idea that this is not about us, but about Jesus. We are transfixed by His story and His heart for our community. We will become a people who are seed-throwers and fire-starters, hope peddlers and grace-givers, risk-takers and vision-casters, young and old. We will link arms with anyone who tells the story of Jesus. We will, through Jesus, empower the poor, strengthen the weak, embrace the outcast, seek the lost. We will continue to serve together, play together, worship together, and live life together. Our community will change because God sent us."
Amen, and amen.
