LIFEgroup LDR Update // 4.6.16

Team,

Good evening! We’re on our Discipleship Team Retreat so I’ll keep this one brief.

As you know, Evan is heading out to our West Franklin campus to serve as Student Minister. We’re pumped for all that God is doing in him and tomorrow night we will commission him to West Franklin. We’ll share stories and some student video testimonies of how God has been faithful through Evan. This will happen at the conclusion of our group time in Hudson Hall. As usual, we’ll have our time of worship with our student band leading us as well.

We’ll aim to finish our group time by 7pm so we can jump straight into LIFEgroups and the Word. We do have SLT tomorrow night, so here’s a friendly reminder to aim for 7:50 at the latest with your LIFEgroup. Thanks for your help. Y’all are the best.

See you soon,

g

LIFEgroup LDR Update // 3.30.16

Welcome Back!

I know we had a lot of folks out this past week and I’m pumped to jump back into LIFEgroups tonight with everyone.

I hope you and your family had a great Easter Sunday as well. This was Chelsea and I’s first Easter at the church and it was incredible to see everyone and worship alongside you.

As we head into tonight I wanted to update you on the West Franklin Student Minister position. As of the first of this week, our own Evan Kunz has been tabbed as the new student minister at the West Franklin campus. I’m incredibly excited to see what God is doing with Evan and at the same time it’s tough because he’s become a close brother and he’s been a great component of our summer teams for years and our full-time intern this year. Evan will still be on many of our student trips/events/retreats only this time as the leader of our West Franklin campus. Ev has been and will continue to be an invaluable member of our BBC team and can’t wait to see what God does at that campus!

At the end of our time in LIFEgroups tonight, I will come up and let the students know about Evan’s coming transition. He will officially be here this Sunday and we will commission him to West Franklin next Wednesday night at LIFEgroups so he can get a started at his new campus as soon as possible with summer approaching. Next Wednesday will be his last LIFEgroup night with us.

Tonight we’ll have four songs and we’ll lead a quick icebreaker/announcements between those songs. I’ll finish up with Evan’s transition announcement at the end.

I’m praying for each of your groups tonight and I’m excited to get the whole gang back together. See you in a few hours!

LIFEgroup LDR Update // 3.15.16 // Baptisms this week!

Team,

I’m thankful to the Lord that he’s moving and we’re getting to see students follow in obedience to Christ. Two Sundays ago we saw Sonny walk a student through baptism and tomorrow at LIFEgroups we get to share in seeing two more students follow in believer’s baptism! I’M PUMPED.

To me, all of the fruit we’re seeing speaks to God moving through His word and His people. Thanks for continually teaching His truth to these students. The two gals we’re baptizing tomorrow are deeply involved in their LIFEgroup and I truly believe this is the fruit of both the Word and the community created in those groups. Awesome.

We’ll kick off our time tomorrow night with the band and Jason leading a song, then a brief summer promo video, and then Chris will welcome, run through announcements, and set up the baptisms. After baptisms we’ll respond with two worship songs and then head to groups.

Can’t wait.

See you tomorrow night at 6:20. Thanks for ALL you’re doing. We’re blessed to have you on the team.

LIFEgroup LDR Update // 3.2.16

Morning!

I want to start off by thanking you for coming to our Leader Dinner on Sunday night. Our team is incredibly thankful for the job you do week in and week out and we just wanted to find another way to say “thanks.” I know some of you weren’t able to make it and please know that you were missed. Also, that fried mac and cheese was unreal. If you’re looking for the spot, it’s Outlander’s in Nolensville. We have a few students that work there, so be sure and say hello. Below is a quick rundown of this past weekend and then all that’s coming…

ANVIL RECAP //

I also want to thank you for your prayers for Anvil. We had 5 students surrender their lives to Jesus! It was so good to see so many dads spend intentional time with their sons. Chris White did an incredible job of focusing us in on what a biblical man should be and Jason Cox and his team were used powerfully in worship. Chris Blanton led the sessions with the dads and it was outstanding. The gifts that these men have to lead are truly incredible. I was just blessed to see it.

We are following up with the 5 students as we speak! These are exciting times. We just got to baptize three students Sunday at the Quarterly Baptism and we’ve also got a student baptism in the 9:30 student hour in Hudson this week. He has an incredible testimony and you’re going to want to hear it. I can’t wait.

PARENT FOCUS NIGHT & SUMMER LAUNCH //

Tomorrow night we are launching all things Summer during our Parent Focus Night. Students and leaders will be able to sign up for each of our summer events. We’re pretty excited around here and are looking forward to tomorrow night.

The parents will meet with our staff in Hudson Hall while you are with students in LIFEgroups. Don’t worry, you’ll have every opportunity to sign up as leadership on the events. We’d love to have you.

I’m praying for each of you and looking forward to tomorrow night at LIFEgroups.

Thankful to be on the team,

g
