Hear Me Roar

January 6, 2014 — Leave a comment

“You’re going to hear me roar.” That’s a proclamation that I have resolve. That I’m here to do something. Kind of like Nehemiah, “I am doing a great work and I cannot come down.” [Nehemiah 6:3] That’s what last night was all about at Two Cities Church. We had a blast at our 3rd preview service for Two Cities, a church that hasn’t even launched yet. Our volunteerism was up and our kids keep multiplying. We opened up an environment for elementary aged kids called UpStreet [small group edition]… it’s in BETA, but went really well last night.

After services there’s usually a text train that follows where people from our team send me all the great things that happened that night, the wins from the evening. But yesterday, one of my favorite wins was on Facebook, in the form of a review. Here’s what Daniel said after coming to catch a Glimpse of Two Cities Church.

So i FINALLY got to A Glimpse of Two Cities Church tonight.. Was GREAT to see some old friends.. Paul HaugenTim DoutyJill DoutyDarren Grubel andMicah Foster. They are doin it UP at Two Cities Church… If you do not like to go to an established church, a Big Church or are just looking for something new.. Check them out..Be WARNED…. Youre NOT going to want to leave…

Being a Music guy, Jill, Paul and Tim were AWESOME as always… They did the song by KATY PERRY – ROAR and SHE NAILED IT… I was SO impressed, as always…

You GOTTA check them out….

Next “GLIMPSE” is February 9th at 5:00pm at The Clovis Veterans Memorial Building.

If you dont want to go alone.. Let Me know..

Below I posted an album I shared on Google+ and it includes a short video from rehearsal with the song ROAR by Katy Perry. We opened the service with it and I gotta say, it was my favorite opener so far. Enjoy these candid shots and two videos.

The Best Carol Ever!

December 24, 2013 — Leave a comment

Merry Christmas Eve!

Sometimes Christmas carols can get a little old, especially when you’ve been listening to the same ones for over a month everywhere you go. But North Point Community Church in Atlanta, GA has solved that problem with “The Best Carol Ever”.

I present to you, “Christmas in Bevelton”

Step Up[date]

[Summary of What’s below: Update on our Step Up Campaign, What We Hope for in 2014, How You Can Help Get Push This Vision Forward]step up letterhead
Here’s a quick update last post on our end-of-year Step Up campaign. Let me remind of you our goals for this campaign.

  • $10,000 in one-time gifts
  • $4,000 pledged in increased monthly giving starting in Jan 2014

As of this moment we are still in need of:

  • $8,620.63 in one-time gifts
  • $3,550 pledged in increased monthly giving starting in Jan 2014

What we Hope for in 2014
But here’s the deal. We don’t need the money to sustain what we’ve been doing. We’re not in maintenance mode. We want to step up the implementation of our mission and vision. To lead people into a growing relationship with Jesus Christ by creating a church that unchurched people love to attend.

Here’s what the cash from this campaign enables us to do:

  • Hire a Service Programming Director – The person in charge of the adult worship experience from the parking lot to the stage.
  • Increase service frequency from 1x monthly to every 3 weeks, then every other week, then every week. [The rate at which this increases is determined by increasing volunteerism, giving, inviting and involvement with small groups.]
  • Pay off the credit we owe to our credit card, due to the purchase of our equipment and trailer.
  • Pay for our December events (KidStuf Christmas Edition and Christmas Night of Worship).
  • Give us a little margin entering 2014 for the unexpected expenses we’ll face.

In 2014, we will:

  • Open UpStreet (K-6th grade environment) – in January we will have a BETA version open!
  • Continue to grow Waumba Land – it was doubled between our first two services
  • Host every week services by mid fall 2014
  • Increase our engagement with each other through more group opportunities
  • Increase our engagement with each other through our Strategic Service teams

In 2014, we hope to:

  • Hire some of our key volunteer staff
  • Create a Starting Point group for seekers, starters and returners
  • Continue baptizing people
  • Increase our community impact by partnering with local non-profits that are getting it done

*In 2014 we will receive $25,000 in matching funds from Growing Healthy Churches. Some of this end-of-year campaign will qualify us to receive some of those funds*

Push the Vision forward:
So, here’s how you can help us reach our goals for this campaign.

1. Give or increase giving, monthly
2. Give a one-time gift (tax deductible for 2013) online
, by mail (1865 Herndon Ave K304, Clovis, Ca 93611) or in person at our Christmas Night of Worship
3. Invite your friends, family, co-workers and neighbors to our events, like these (KidStuf Christmas Edition and Christmas Night of Worship)
4. Join a launch group (small group) in January
5. Join a Strategic Service team, just let us know at our next event

You may think, “I can’t afford much, so it’s not that big of a difference.” Every penny matters, every act of faith is significant. When you give, you’re not just saying, “I want to support this.” You’re saying, “I trust God to do something significant with this.” It’s an opportunity to grow in your relationship with Jesus… which is accomplishing our mission.

Let’s Step Up together so that Two Cities Church can Step it Up!

It’s coming… the second ever Two Cities Church Night of Worship.

The Magic of Disney

November 8, 2012 — Leave a comment

I came across a volunteer training from North Point Community Church. They brought out Lee Cockerell, former CEO of Disney World, to speak about leadership to their volunteers. Here’s one, of many, things that stuck out to me as I watched his talk.

The follow list was discovered when Disney World hired the Gallup organization to survey 6,000 guests on what they expected when they visited Disney World. He made the case that these expectations can be applied to any organization or business, even a church.

So think about the following list and ask yourself how this relates to the church. I’d love to hear your thoughts.

The 4 Guest Expectations:

  • Make me feel special
  • Treat me as an individual
  • Show respect to me and my family
  • Have knowledgeable employees
  • Without Vision…

    Proverbs 29:18

    If people can’t see what God is doing, they stumble all over themselves; But when they attend to what he reveals, they are most blessed. MSG

    Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is he. KJV

    Where there is no revelation, people cast off restraint; but blessed are those who heed wisdom’s instruction. TNIV

    Where there is no prophetic vision the people cast off restraint, but blessed is he who keeps the law. ESV

    When people have no clear picture of what could and should be by God’s design, they never really live. What if you could be a part of casting vision for what could and should be? What if God used you to help paint a clear picture of a better way? That’s what we’re striving for at Two Cities Church.

    Want to be a part of it? Let’s chat.

    Here’s a place we were a part of before moving to our hometown to plant this church. And New Vintage Church carries the same vision. Here’s how they said it:

    I was honored to officiate the marriage of Forrest and Christy Harper on July 6, 2012 at the Vine Hill House in Sebastopol, Ca. Forrest and Christy were in our Community Group at New Vintage Church.


    Here’s most of the guys from our Community Group. I miss these guys! (Missing: Joel)


    Below is my second official Father-Daughter dance at a wedding. That was my favorite moment of the wedding.


    Thanks to Forrest and Christy for allowing me to be a part of your wedding day! Have fun on your month long honey moon in Asia.

    Lesley’s Story

    July 7, 2012 — Leave a comment

    Lesley is Nate’s Grandmother.
    Lesley attends New Vintage Church in Santa Rosa, Ca.
    She serves on the Guest Services team every week.
    She is a beacon of joy in that community.
    Here is the video that was shown just before I had the pleasure of baptizing her.

    If you want to be a part of a community where life-change happens like this, Two Cities Church is coming soon to the Fresno/Clovis area.

    For the past three and half years, I was a part of New Vintage Church in Santa Rosa, Ca. I loved it. The kind of ministry that is done there is not like most churches, it’s a new way of being the church. That’s the kind of church we want to create here in our hometown of Fresno/Clovis, Ca. Check out the video promo that was created for New Vintage and let me know if you would like to be a part of a place like that.

    Two Cities Church – Coming Soon to the Fresno/Clovis area!

    Nate’s Story

    July 3, 2012 — 3 Comments

    Nate is a high school student in Santa Rosa, Ca.
    He attends New Vintage Church.
    He volunteers in the Children’s Ministry.
    He came to the church a little over a year before this video.
    Here’s the story New Vintage showed before I had the honor of baptizing him.

    I’m trying to convince Nate to come to Fresno State or Fresno Pacific University so that he can be a part of Two Cities Church during college. 🙂
