You feel called to start a church. You’re excited, you believe with all your heart you are going to reach everyone and nothing will get in your way…
Then someone on your team asks you how you are going to pay for all the stuff you need
Ok. That’s not true. I knew we were going to fund this thing. We have a generous team. Several families at Proximity are currently giving 20% of their income because they believe and are passionate about the vision! 20%!! Come on man! Also, we have a tremendous support team that has likewise been investing into Proximity. If you have a great vision and a great team then you will always have people who believe enough to give.
I wasn’t stressing the money, but I knew we needed to bring in quite a bit more to hit our pre-launch goals
Then, two days I received a text asking if we would like some sound/projection equipment. In an hour I was connected to my new best friends at Crosslink Community Church in Mebane NC who just showed up big time out of a love for the Gospel and church planting.
So today Michael Calvert and I rode on out. We thought for sure a truck and trailer would take care of the job…
Nope. Not even close.
That’s as much as we could get on and we had to leave the biggest piece (and a couple of other things) behind! You know what, I’m glad! It gives me another excuse to go visit my new friends.
After walking through their amazing facility and hearing their story Michael and I were able to ride back together and dream of the future of Proximity. That actually might have been more valuable than the equipment! Seriously.
Their present is our future. I want our people…and our support team dreaming BIG for Proximity! We are COMING SOON and COMING CLOSE to Northeast Greensboro because there are a LOT of people out here looking for a church like what we are bringing.
And we are a lot closer now than we were yesterday thanks to Crosslink!
