Last week, I had the pleasure of joining several of our pastors and church planters in the North Sound Network, a group of Converge Northwest churches lead by Jonathan Alexander (Northshore Community Church) and Nate Hettinga (Cascade Community Church) who have gathered to pool resources and knowledge for the cause of planting more churches in the North Sound region. The mostly bearded and flannel-clad day was complete with great fellowship, messy BBQ, and a pair of adorably curious boxer pups who greeted arrivals in the parking lot of Todd’s blueberry farm. Here’s what we talked about:

Bridges fascinate me, their construction, their purpose and especially their symbolism. Being from Pittsburgh, bridges are an important trademark of the city. I love New York City; one of my favorite things to do in NYC is to walk the Brooklyn Bridge. The history of how it was built is so interesting. It is unbelievable to think that 27 people died making that bridge. They gave their lives in order to make life a little bit easier for others. Bridges normally build from one side to the other, but in order for a bridge to be built, one side has to start first.

I recently returned from a weekend in Camarillo, CA.  I had the incredible opportunity to preach at Camarillo Community Church in a building that Cornerstone helped fund almost 15 years ago.  Cornerstone gave Camarillo Community our largest loan at the time, to help expand their ministry.  Camarillo Community paid off the loan last summer and has continued to launch other God-inspired ministries in order to build an ever expanding community of fully devoted Christ followers.  We have seen real fruit from this partnership within the ministry of Converge.

In 2009, pastor Brad and Jeni Main started to sense the call of God to start a church in Merrill, Wisconsin. After much prayer, confirmation, raising support and finding partners with the same vision, Journey Church held its public launch Sunday, September 11, 2011, the church began to grow in numbers and spiritual maturity.  Here is their story:
