During my time on the Lubbock City Council we continually talked about infrastructure. Infrastructure consists of streets, sewer and water lines, just to name a few items. Anytime we considered City growth through annexation we had to plan for the infrastructure that could support the growth.
Fast forward to Sunday night, September 11, 2016. Bacon Heights added considerable spiritual infrastructure by ordaining 19 new deacons. The front of our worship center was packed with the men and their families along with those praying over them.
These new deacons have completed a 6 month process of determining God's will. These all sense God's call upon their lives to serve Him in the role of deacon. This means God is preparing our church for significant ministry.
Henry Blackaby used to teach that if you want to know what God is getting ready to do in your church, look at who He's sending to join you. I believe a case can be made to see who God is calling out as leaders. Everything I see tells me God is preparing us for our greatest days which are yet to come. Consequently, we must prepare FOR THE FUTURE.
More to come....
