Celebration Midwest and a New Home for Catalyst Church Charlotte
I'm excited about the weekend because its time for Celebration Midwest. This will be my second year at the event in Warrensburg, Missouri. It will be good to hear some anointed preaching of the Word, join in worship with other members of the Newfrontiers USA family members, and catch up with old friends we've made in the short time we've related to this church planting family. Those friends include Terry Virgo, who will preach this weekend. I say that not as an attempt to "name drop" but to communicate more about Terry than about me. The family of churches the Lord has used him to build now tops 600 around the world, but he continues to be personable and humble.
There is big news to report on Catalyst Church in Charlotte. After a year in our first temporary location, Pleasant Grove AME Zion Church in Cabarrus County, we are moving to a new place to accomodate our growth. The fine folks with The Branch Family Church have opened up their school to us for the summer. So beginning Sunday June 14, we will begin Sunday morning meetings at The Branch Academy, at 9100 Olmsted Drive. For those of you in in the Charlotte area, we would love for you to join us. For those of you outside our city, we covet your prayers as we continue kingdom building for God's glory.
