Thank you for taking the time to read this first post. I’m launching an on-line platform to create a secondary weekly avenue through which I can communicate with my congregation.
I lead NEHBC through my churchwide preaching, teaching, and vision casting. It is impossible for me to lead well through only one opportunity per week to influence the congregation. In days gone by, pastors had three opportunities to lead through preaching and teaching: Sunday morning, Sunday evening, and Wednesday evening. Then, as Sunday nights phased out for numerous reasons, it became two opportunities. Now, Wednesday nights have largely phased out making it more and more difficult for true teaching shepherds to lead effectively.
Midweek Worship is my secondary, weekly opportunity with the congregation. However, many NEHBCers commute to work 45 minutes or more. For our long commuters, Midweek Worship is simply impossible. Building an on-line platform is my solution.
While Midweek Worship will continue, I’m creating this virtual platform to address things we simply can’t get to on Sunday mornings: current events, family, devotional thoughts, rationale for NEHBC decisions, thoughts on NEHBC happenings. Through my Twitter account, a Facebook account, and an Instagram account, we’ll be communicating with you that new posts are up here on the blog.
Here’s where you can find me on the social media platforms:
