Exit Date and Tulsa October 16, 2008

My last Sunday at Noland Road will be November 9.  There’s no backing out now, which is a little scary in the way of not having a job.  At the same time it’s exciting because we’ll be able to start pursuing church planting whole heartedly.  The reason I put the wheels in motion was because I wanted to move forward in faith.  I felt that if I didn’t go ahead and encourage Noland Road to begin looking for a replacement, I could hang on for as long as I wanted or eventually back away from the call of God and just stay in my comfort zone.  No more comfort zone 🙂  The church will be voting in a couple of weeks about providing some funding for us as we begin this journey – if they choose to do so it could be really helpful in the way of providing income for 2 months while I look for a job.

Tulsa – I’m leaving tomorrow with my good friend Brad Andrews to spend the weekend in Tulsa, OK.  Brad feels called by God to plant a church in the urban core of the city.  I’m going with him to discover if Tulsa and this church plant is where God is calling our family.  Pray that I will hear clearly from God one way or the other – and that if Tulsa is the right place, He will birth a vision in me for reaching the urban core with the gospel.

That sounds great! My church was recently a new church that grew out of a Sunday School class in Tulsa and just started to blow up.
This weekend we’ll be celebrating our 2nd anniversary as a church.

If you happen to be in downtown Tulsa that night, feel free to join us for worship, food, and celebration.
