Ok… first of all.. forgive me for taking so long to blog again. Things have been very busy – very productive and very busy!
This post is about three subjects near and dear to my heart… God, Music and Leadership!
Background info… John Maxwell is a teaching pastor at Christ Fellowship, here in Palm Beach Gardens, FL. It has been interesting to see how our church has grown by embracing the leadership principals Mr. Maxwell teaches. The church celebrates 25 years of service this month as it grew from a small group in Pastor Tom Mullin’s home to 4 campuses with over 13,000 regular attenders weekly.
First up… Music – The amazingly talented worship leaders at Christ Fellowship completed an all original worship CD, called “In Your Love”. Last night, October 4, 2009, I was a part of something waaay bigger than me. I sang with the worship team which included the music leaders from all campuses. The night was a “Night of Worship” and CD Release event. We came together in one place, at one time, to celebrate what God is doing in the church, the community and the world. The entire auditorium was packed, every seat filled!!! Plus, thousands joined online as well. It was quite an experience that everyone should have seen!!
I have to mention the talented music leaders that wrote the songs and performed on this album - James Duvall, Jay Boykin, Drew Middleton, Russell Allen, Phil & Jaci Jackson, Harold Ross, Danny Zayas and Joe & Tina Cromey.
Leadership… The experience last night leads me to another thought. I can tell the church leadership has been pouring into these young worship leaders and teams at the 4 campuses. I am privileged to spend time with many of the young leaders at this church and I’ve watched the “leadership baton” get passed down to this new young and vibrant group of leaders. Last night showcased some of the extraordinary talent the music team has; I could tell these young leaders are making a huge impact in our community and are going to make an even bigger impact in the world at large. I am so excited to be a part of such a forward thinking team of young leaders that want to impact our world in a BIG way!
