Just wanted to let you know that I have suspended my posting on this site during this season. My main blog Making Difference Makers is where I am posting right now. When I begin posting back on here I will let you know at that site.

Carlos and Enterprise

Lovin' Carlos' stand with Enterprise....

I won't be riding in an Enterprise Rent-A-Car.

Core Meeting Tonight

Fri, 18 Apr 2008 11:43:48 PDT

Tonight is the night for our Five Points Campus core meeting. I'm jacked...things are house is not big enough to handle it.

I love great problems like this.

Busy But Enjoying It

Tue, 15 Apr 2008 21:41:18 PDT

Haven't had a lot of time to commit to quality blogging because lots of great things have been happening.

With leading a campus for Bay Area Fellowship and becoming principal for Corpus Christi Academy...all the while trying to be a great husband and father.

Life can get kind of hectic...I have to be reminded every now and then to enjoy the ride. Thanks babe...for reminding me.

One Powerful Prayer

Sun, 13 Apr 2008 16:05:21 PDT

Today at Bay Area Fellowship, Pastor Bil started a new series on prayer. We are going to start praying big prayers around here.

At the end he put out the call to pray a big prayer over the next week:
We are going to pray that God is going to provide property that we can sign a lease on within the next seven days for our Padre Island and Five Points campuses. We are going to double our campuses from two to four in the next seven days.

On top of that he wanted us to pray that we would pour a slab for a new playground at the Corpus Campus.
Here is the cool thing. Right after the service someone came to him and said they would pour the slab. God is so awesome.

Be praying for us as we go through the next few months of launching these two campuses. I'm not just praying for that but also am praying that God will supply the finances for equipment and materials to get us started.

Pray God-sized prayers and watch Him move on your behalf.

I'll update you within the next week about the properties.

Multi Site and Bay Area

Fri, 11 Apr 2008 12:34:09 PDT

John Atkinson had a great post today called Multi Site Keeps Moving. Make sure you go check it out for info on what we are doing.

Here is an excerpt from the end:
Here's what I love about following your dreams; you don't need to have all the answers, all the ideas, all the skills, and most importantly, all the money, you just need to have faith. If you have faith, God will take care of the rest. I'm living proof of that because I'm sure not smart enough to pull this gig off. Just ask well, pretty much any person on the planet that knows me!
My thought is that if we could do it there really isn't much faith in it at all. Make sure your dreams are the size that it's going to take God to do it. Then, supernatural things will follow.

Bay Area Five Points

Thu, 10 Apr 2008 07:11:59 PDT

I'm double dipping on my two blogs today because Pastor John let me know that our Bay Area Fellowship Padre Island campus had 70 at their core meeting tonight...they raised $6,500 for the campus as well....I'm so excited about what God is about to do through us.

Scream it to the rooftops...We're bringing it to the Five Points area and beyond. Calallen, Tuloso, Odem, Sinton, Orange Grove, Mathis, Robstown...fasten your's coming and we are going to change this area.

If you know someone in any of these area let them know about what we are doing. Alone we can only do so much...together we are an army poised for something big.

Let's win this area TOGETHER!!!!

What Happened

Sat, 05 Apr 2008 19:10:35 PDT

I guess it happened so fast that I'm sitting here tonight going what happened. A month ago we were plugging along depending on God. I was working as a teacher and we were putting together a team to launch a church.

Fast forward and I'm now a principal and we have been asked to launch a campus for Bay Area Fellowship. God is so amazing. And when He gets ready to move He can turn things around in a snap.

My Journey

Wed, 02 Apr 2008 20:10:36 PDT

I'm still on my journey...just two busy to blog about it. I figure it's better to do it than to blog it.

So I'll update you if I have time.

Friday Night Core Meeting

Mon, 31 Mar 2008 21:20:04 PDT

Great things are happening with our launch of a Bay Area Five Points Campus. This campus has a prime mission to reach the Calallen/TM and surrounding area by extending the vision of Bay Area Fellowship.

*** Due to the initial response of our meeting, our house is no longer able to handle the size of the meeting. We will be moving the meeting to Bay Area Fellowship. Click [HERE] for map.

The meeting will immediately follow the Friday night SPONTANEOUS meeting that begins at 6:30 pm. Pastor Bil was led this week to have a spontaneous revival beginning Wednesday to Friday. Read about it on his blog [HERE]. Each night’s meetings begin at 6:30 and will end around 8:00.

This is perfect for our meeting as you will get to see just exactly where God is leading Bay Area, as well as give you an idea of who Bay Area is. Our meeting to follow will be a time where we will then meet with Pastor John Atkinson and me to field any questions you may have about our upcoming Five Points Campus launch.

After the service, I will be next to the information table and we will go from there.

If you have any questions feel free to email this week and I’ll try and provide you with any details. Make sure to let me know you will be there.

My Big Announcement

Mon, 31 Mar 2008 20:40:03 PDT

In case you missed it on my other blog I made my big announcement.

Oh yeah, John Atkinson made the announcement as well. Go check out his blog to read where we are headed.

We're gonna charge hell with a water pistol fire hydrant.

Journey Day 10

Mon, 31 Mar 2008 09:01:04 PDT

Today is day ten of my 50 day spiritual journey.

Prayer Time - 60 Minutes

Prayer Reflection - Great Time In Prayer

Bible Time - Acts 10 Amplified Version

Scripture - Acts 10:24 And on the following day they entered Caesarea. Cornelius was waiting for and expecting them, and he had invited together his relatives and his intimate friends.

Scripture Reflection - Cornelius not only what to hear but he invited others to hear as well. He invited his main circle of influence. I think it is important that we are aware of those that are closest to us and that the possibilities of their relationship with God may start with us.

Book Reading - Visioneering pages 117-121

Book Reflection - These four pages end the chapter called The Power of Vision.

Great thought in the book: "Powerful relating consists of grasping a vision of what God has in mind for someone and the faith to believe that the vision could become a reality." - Larry Crabb

My Prayer - Lord, lets rock this area and speak vision into the lives that are here.

Needing Balance

Mon, 31 Mar 2008 07:41:16 PDT

I am off today...but not off. I have several things I need to do. Working a full time job and launching a church demand both a lot of time and energy.

Probably one thing I will have to do, and something my wife has said, is set boundaries and manage our time.

One thing I saw happen through the past year is that my relationship with my wife has grown. Through the hard time we bonded together. We shared our frustrations together. We are not perfect but I believe we are closer now than ever.

God has also brought some great friends into my life. It is amazing the people who said they were going to be there for us. "Where are they again?"

For what is about to go down....I'm simply PUMPED!

Blogs With Benefits 1

Mon, 31 Mar 2008 07:20:55 PDT

(image) When I began blogging, I really didn't know what I was getting in to. I had a friend who had moved off to pastor a church who had came back and showed me his blog and how I could keep up with him.

I thought it was perfect since I was in transition as well. It would be a great way for all the wonderful people at my previous church to be able to keep up with what I was doing.

Little did I know there were some positive benefits to blogging. It is probably one of the reasons I feel every pastor/ministry leader should blog.
  • Relationships - Ministry can be very lonely if you are not careful. Not only that but in some churches networking with other pastors is not an easy thing to do. Through blogging I have developed friendships not only across the country but throughout the world.
  • Therapeutic - Blogging for me is a way of centering my thoughts and filtering them on "paper". It allows me to write some of my frustrations as well as share many of my joys. Of course you have to be really careful what you write though, as once you hit that publish button it is out there for everyone to read.
  • Educational - When I first began blogging, I didn't have a clue there were some great blogs where I could get instantaneous information. Many pastors post what their days and weeks are like. Churches post some of the creative elements they create. Pastors share their successes and failures. Imagine if we could have read what the Apostle Paul went through on a daily basis.
What are some of the benefits you have found in blogging?

Journey Day 9

Mon, 31 Mar 2008 07:50:55 PDT

Today is day nine of my 50 day spiritual journey.

Prayer Time - 80 Minutes

Prayer Reflection - I spent a lot of time just worshiping and singing before the Lord. It is so awesome what He has done. I also spent time praying over the city, Pastor Bil, John and the staff at Bay Area Fellowship.

Bible Time - Shame on me....I allowed the day to slip by.

Scripture - None

Scripture Reflection - None

Book Reading - None

Book Reflection - None

My Prayer - Lord, help me order my day for success.

Teach us all that life can be fun in ministry.

Journey Day 8

Sun, 30 Mar 2008 07:26:56 PDT

Today is day eight of my 50 day spiritual journey.

Prayer Time - 30 Minutes...may have been up to 45 to an hour as I prayed some while I drove as well as throughout my going through the day.

Prayer Reflection - We were out of town at an all day tournament and about 20 minutes into my prayer time that I carved out I started to feel not so good.

Bible Time - Acts 8 Amplified Version

Scripture - Acts 8:1 AND SAUL was [not only] consenting to [Stephen's] death [he was pleased and entirely approving]. On that day a great and severe persecution broke out against the church which was in Jerusalem; and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles (special messengers).

Scripture Reflection - We often fear persecution but it was persecution that actually spread the Word and made the church move out. I wonder if they would have been their own special club in Jerusalem like so many churches are today if it weren't for this.

Book Reading - Visioneering pages 113-112116

Book Reflection - These four pages are in the chapter called The Power of Vision.

As a father it is vital that I cast vision to my children. Vision is so powerful coming from people we respect. It draws us and captures our imaginations and then engages our hearts which gives us a sense of purpose.

My Prayer - Lord, use me to speak purpose into my children's lives.

Is This It

Fri, 28 Mar 2008 20:37:03 PDT

Is this my big announcement????

Journey Day 7

Fri, 28 Mar 2008 22:19:10 PDT

Today is day seven of my 50 day spiritual journey.

Prayer Time - One Hour

Prayer Reflection - The prayer time was broken up through the day but this evening I prayed for about 25 minutes and it was so good...just praising and thanking God for what He is doing.

Bible Time - Acts 7 Amplified Version

Scripture - Acts 7:49 Heaven [is] My throne, and earth the footstool for My feet. What [kind of] house can you build for Me, says the Lord, or what is the place in which I can rest?

Scripture Reflection - What so awesome is that Heaven is His throne and the earth is His footstool yet He lives in my heart.

Book Reading - Visioneering pages 109-112

Book Reflection - These four pages begin the chapter called The Power of Vision.

Imagine if we realized the power of our words and how they can paint a vision for every relationship we may have. Words have the power to point people in a set their life's course.

As a leader this is especially true. We have the potential to chart the course of our organization or family by the power of the words we speak over others lives.

My Prayer - Lord, help me to maximize others around me. Help me to always be thinking and hearing what You may want to speak to others through me.

My Announcement-Well Maybe

Thu, 27 Mar 2008 18:16:21 PDT

It's coming soon...nobody even tried to guess on my last hint. Of course it is relation to the church God has been leading us to launch.

How about another hint? Read This.

That one might make it really easy. Maybe still haven't officially heard.

Journey Day 6

Thu, 27 Mar 2008 20:59:40 PDT

Today is day three of my 50 day spiritual journey.

Prayer Time - One Hour

Prayer Reflection - Tried to begin the rhythm of early morning. Prayed about 30 minutes then more two and from work.

Bible Time - Acts 6 Amplified Version

Scripture - Acts 6:7 And the message of God kept on spreading, and the number of disciples multiplied greatly in Jerusalem; and [besides] a large number of the priests were obedient to the faith [in Jesus as the Messiah, through Whom is obtained eternal salvation in the kingdom of God].

Scripture Reflection - The message kept spreading and the disciples multiplied. Why can't more people and more churches get this? IT IS ABOUT NUMBERS. If we are doing what God has called us to it will be about numbers. And not just is now multiplying. That is why I love this idea of multi-sites. You are no longer adding but are multiplying.

Book Reading - Visioneering pages 103-107

Book Reflection - These four pages end the chapter called Going Public II.

Late...not gonna update this.

My Prayer - Lord, I pray more people would go on a journey like this. Work on me being more in tune with you. Help me to hear what you are speaking to me during this time.

Journey Day 5

Thu, 27 Mar 2008 18:40:40 PDT

Today is day three of my 50 day spiritual journey.

Prayer Time - None...My day didn't work out at all for me

Book Reading - Visioneering pages 99-102

Book Reflection - These four pages are in the chapter called Going Public II.

The problem engages the mind, the solution engages the imagination, but the compelling reason engages the heart. You must be convinced of what your vision should be before you can effectively cast your vision. Run your vision through two questions: What Difference Will It Make? and Why Should I Attempt This?

My Prayer - Lord, help me to stay strong on this journey and stay focused.

Journey Day 4

Tue, 25 Mar 2008 21:52:57 PDT

Today is day three of my 50 day spiritual journey.

Prayer Time - One Hour

Prayer Reflection - Two things I felt God say into my Spirit. "See my glory revealed in you." It was as if He was saying...I'm going to make all the wrongs right and that all I needed to do is let Him be God.

Second was I asked Him what are next move was with the church. "Sit and watch". Now I know that wasn't me...I actually had to ask twice. I'm am not a sit and watch...I'm a run and do. I'm a planner and implementer...I felt Him saying to "sit and watch" what He will do.

Bible Time - Acts 4 Amplified Version

Scripture - Acts 4:8 Then Peter, [because he was] filled with [and controlled by] the Holy Spirit, said to them, Rulers of the people and members of the council (the Sanhedrin),

Scripture Reflection - Much is put on being filled with the Holy Spirit....but is it time we allow the Holy Spirit to control us. Powerful thought. Peters words came because he gave control to the Holy Spirit. Do we want the filling but remain in control? What would our lives look like if we gave total control? This is probably what truly making Him Lord of our lives would look like.

Book Reading - Visioneering pages 95-98 (there were some blank pages before this that's why the numbers skipped)

Book Reflection - It's late I read but I'm not going to update this.

My Prayer - Lord, pour out your Spirit and Fire in me.
