Big Things Are Happening

Since the launch of the satellite campus was announced, I’ve been blown away by the amount of interest in joining the launch team.

On September 22, the pastors of NRHBC shared how someone(s) can join the Launch Team for our new Satellite Campus – we also answer several questions about the Satellite Campus – via a flyer, an example of which is above.

My goal through this blog post is to further explain the process for joining the launch team.

The process for joining the Launch Team is simple:

1. Pray about joining the launch team.

The pastors at NRHBC ask that everyone who is interested in joining the team spend time in prayer.  This endeavor requires that we intentionally and specifically pray for God’s blessings to be on the Satellite Campus.

2. Review the descriptions of each area of service at  To express interest in joining the launch team, fill out the simple application at between October 6 and November 17, 2013.

I am blessed by how many have expressed interest in joining the launch team.  Blessed and amazed.

What the leadership is asking is for everyone – even those who  have expressed interest to me personally – to review the areas of service and to fill out the simple application.  The purpose for the application is not just to express interest but also to express interest in an area or areas of service.

Everyone who joins the launch team will be expected to serve at the Satellite Campus.  There will not be any opportunity for someone to sit and soak.  This endeavor is great and requires everyone to serve.

[[ Just to be clear – the link will not go live until October 6.  We want people to spend time in prayer and in reviewing the areas of service before filling out the application to join the launch team.]]

3. Meet with the Campus Pastor, Mark Spence, to finalize your commitment.

I know what you’re thinking… “I have to meet with that guy?”

My goal is to meet with everyone who expresses interest.  One reason is to start the process for me to become your pastor.  The other reason is to make sure that each member of the Launch Team understands that the launch of the Satellite Campus will require each team member to have a missionary’s mindset.

We are starting a Satellite because the Great Commission calls us to make disciples.  The mission that Christ has given his church has to be at the heart of each Launch Team member.

I am excited about this endeavor because I am confident God’s hand is on it.

Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”  Ephesians 3:20-21
