Right now my church is developing new strategies to mobilize serving throughout the city. We want every attendee to serve the needs of their neighbors. I’ve never been a part of a church that was so outward focused. It’s still a little disorganized, but I’m really excited about where things are headed.

I’ve spent a lot of time lately thinking about how I can serve my neighbors. Too often it’s really easy to hide behind our staff roles and serve our community through our jobs. My personal conviction is that it isn’t enough. I get paid to do that, so is it really serving? My wife and I have talked and we really want to find opportunities to serve as a family, specifically opportunities that would be appropriate even for Titus (our three year old). It’s really important to us that he grows up truly understanding what it means to have a lifestyle of service.

Yesterday I came across this great video. I love the idea of families coming together and taking on a serving project like this!
