I Got A Job…!!!
As you know we made a leap of faith a couple of months ago as I began searching for a full time job in the business world. During that time I was able to delegate much of the “daily operations” of I.G. to others, while continuing to act as “Director”. Part of that transition meant we would voluntarily stop receiving any type of financial compensation from I.G. Jesus is so faithful. We knew this was the direction He was leading us, and things have been beautiful every step of the way. We are walking in a new level of freedom – I am working full time – and I.G. continues to see the Kingdom Advanced as lay-people are equipped to live a Kingdom lifestyle, make disciples, and plant new house churches in their context – I am able to direct I.G. out of the overflow of my heart, and spend my time investing relationally in people & house church communities – PRAISE JESUS! I started working for a start-up company here in Austin called MooLaLa about a month & a half ago. It’s a fast paced, quickly growing daily deals site similar to others like Groupon, Living Social, etc. I love what I do, and feel that I am fully using the gifts God has given me more than ever before! I am just as much in “ministry” as I have ever been. There are lots of neat things happening as a result of this job for me personally, us as a family, & I.G. as an organization. Feel free to email me for more details. Oh, and CLICK HEREif you love receiving daily deals for 50-80% off on great businesses in your area!
House Churches In Austin…
There are a lot of house churches in Austin – it’s pretty incredible. We (I.G.) have had the privilege of being connected with many of these “organic faith communities” as well as helping birth some of them.
The above photo was taken at a gathering that we currently call our “house church family” – there’s about 15 of us, and we come from all walks of life – it’s a great change of pace for us as most of the community is made up of young married couples, and several families with young kids. The previous H.C.’s have been mainly single people & college students. That said, we still have the privilege of staying connected with other house churches in town that we’ve helped train & birth…
The King Street House Church continues to thrive and multiply…I took the above photo one evening when over 40 people crammed into the house to worship, prayer, and share stories about what God was doing all over the city as people stepped out in faith to bring the Kingdom! ___________________________________________________
I.G. Community Houses in Austin…
-We now have TWO potential I.G. Community Houses in the pipeline! -I am working with one of our board members in Vegas who also “oversees”/pastors the house church we planted there to develop a great process for potential I.G. Community House “candidates”. -These community houses have proven to be life-changing for those invovled, so I.G. will seek to create as many outlets as possible for those who are interested in pursuing living in a community house. _______________________________________________________
That’s it for now! Thanks for continuing to walk with us for over three years now! We are continuing to trust Jesus, and partner with Him to grow the Kingdom as we humbly obey what He has called us to. Love.
