I Got Nothin'

pen-paper

That’s right. Or at least that’s what’s going on here at the blog. I’m being blown by things going on around me. My mind is being filled by some good studies & conversations. My spirit is being revitalized by spending more time with my family, with God, and with some pretty amazing co-workers. My heart is being softened by hearing some incredible things from God’s word – things that are changing me.

But when it comes to the blog, I really got nothing right now. It’s all just churning inside & maybe it will begin to pour out soon. But I’m ok just soaking in for a while.

As far as just life updates, here goes:

Many of you know that in February I began working at Rancho Community Church & School, as pastor of communication. There’s a lot to do, A LOT. But I’m trying to take it easy, prioritize, set goals, and accomplish as much as possible while maintaining health (what a concept). On the church side I’m working hard on:

  • Web rebuild. From the ground up, we’re redesigning and re-architecturing the entire site. A huge project that should be completed in about 7 weeks.
  • Some re-branding. From the overall church to individual ministries & departments, we’re modernizing and bringing up the quality.
  • Kiosks. We’re implementing a culture shift from printed materials to digital media. So we’re building kiosks which will run computers linked to our website where people can get all the info they want/need instantly.

On the school side of things:

  • I setup my school office just last week. (That’s right I have 2 offices – inconvenient yes, but very necessary). I’m there Mondays & Thursdays – stop in and visit anytime!
  • I’m doing parent meetings – just inviting parents to come meet me (& Jen) and hear what my role is and my heart – and also to hear their ideas & concerns. So far I’ve done one meeting which went amazing. Looking forward to another one next week.
  • Advertising. Mailers, News ads, website, twitter, you know the drill.

And a little mind dump…

  • We moved… Again. This time hopefully we’ll be here for a long time. We moved out to a beautiful 5 acre place in wine country. It was a 2 edged sword: The condo we were in was practically unlivable because of the “environment”, luckily Jen found this place – it’s way more “us”.
  • I’m praying about ONE VOICE (last year’s worship gathering & hopefully this year’s as well).
  • I’ve got whiteboards FULL of ideas & not enough time in a week to even make a dent. And of course they are all the best ideas ever that will forever redefine how church functions, so of course they MUST be completed (read: sarcasm).
  • My son is almost 7! The time is flying by (I know, how cliche).
  • My daughter is continuing her terrible 2’s into the 3’s but she’s freakin’ CUTE!
  • I’m a new Francis Chan convert – can’t get enough of the old podcast.

So, for having nothing, I guess that’s something. But I’m not posting thoughts on leadership or how-to’s for church media. I’m just enjoying life and enjoying some health, coming back it feels like.

    Thats cool man that you are redesigning the whole site things like that always come out great when you are working on them. As for One Voice you know you got me i get off of school at 2:30 and can do what ever you need help with with that or anything else for that matter. Any how drop me a line some time long time no hear!
