Leadership Summit

Today was our Leadership Summit at Del Sol Church. This is a time for all of our leaders to come together to look back and celebrate where we've been and to get energized and look forward to the future of ministry and missions as the Del Sol Church family. It's rare for me to be around other non-youth ministry leaders, so I absolutely love these summits because I'm able to rub shoulders with some of the greatest people and greatest servants in the world - the volunteer leaders of Del Sol Church.

Tonight we focused on how we're doing at Serving the World and how we can continue on into the areas of compassion and justice as a local church family.

As part of the review portion of the Summit, our Missions and Ministries Coordinator Teri Valdespino shared a long list of all the ways we as a church have been involved in local, national, and international missions this past year. Then we looked forward to justice issues and how we can become more involved in matters of justice in our world.

I'm so humbled to look back and see what God has been doing through us this past year as far as ministry, missions, growth, and system-building, and I'm pumped at the prospects we're looking forward to in the future: becoming a multi-site church, expanding missions endeavors to Africa, and becoming involved in justice issues throughout the world.

Everyday it seems like I fall in love with Del Sol Church again - not because we're anything special on our own, but because collectively, we as a local church family are open to doing whatever it is God calls us to do, whether it's something as simple as changing the name of our church like we did at the beginning of the year, or going to Africa and getting involved in justic issues like we're looking to do next year.

Put your sunglasses on, because the future's bright for Del Sol Church!
