Sunday Night Mind Dump

   – Incredible first Sunday as Coastal Virginia Church. The energy in the place was awesome. I’m so stinking pumped for the days ahead. 

  • We will be working all summer long preparing for a major marketing campaign coming in Sept! Things on the Inside will begin to change now… But you’ll see a major change on the outside soon. 

  • I found it really funny that the only real criticism we got over the name change came from people who don’t even attend anymore. I pray they find whatever they are looking for. 

  • Hurt people, hurt people. 

  • I had a awesome Fathers Day afternoon. Dave and Busters is always a win for me. I am a sucker for any sort of game. 

  • Today is also my anniversary! I’ve been married to the girl of my dreams for 12 years now. She is truly my everything. I couldn’t have gotten as far as I have as fast without her. I love you Tiff!

– I leave for North Dakota at 4am tomorrow morning. We’re headed back to Trinity Bible College to do construction for mission. I will miss my girls… But I do love this little town in the middle of nowhere. 

  • This will also be a chance to get away with a great group and settle my mind again. Last week was so stressful with the name change vote. Now that it’s over… I need to get away and prepare myself for the rest of the summer. 

  • I’m so stinking proud of my staff! They have been incredible during my entire time as Lead Pastor. I couldn’t ask for anyone better to work with. 

  • It’s been stinking hot for a few weeks now. What’s going on… It’s never this hot in Virginia. 

  • Some dear friends of our are being relocated compliments of the U.S. Navy. The Dyksterhouse family will be dear friends for life. And they will never know what their unwavering support has meant to me and Tiff. 

  • I’m grateful for the Navy… But they need to quit taking such great families from our church. Ha!

Ok friends. I’m out. I’ve got to get to bed early and be up to catch a flight. Love you all…  Have a great week!
