Serious rain in San Marcos today
I know it’s pretty simple but here it is, as I see it:
1) Attend church
2) Invite People (your friends, family, co-workers, neighbors, acquaintances, checkers at HEB, etc. etc)
3) Bring your tithe
4) Serve at church
I’ve left some stuff out for the sake of simplicity. What am I assuming here? What did I leave out? Leave your comment below.
It’s time for a missionary move.
At Bay Area Fellowship San Marcos, we’ve had 75 FIRST TIME visitors in the last 3 weeks. 21 of them have FOUND CHRIST. 63% of the 75 came to the 11:30am service! We need space in that service so new people can fit.
Are you ready to make a MISSIONARY move? Start attending Sundays at 10am or 1pm, or Saturday nights at 5pm or 6:30pm. Your move could mean that somebody finds Christ!

In Mark 10, a young wealthy man came to Jesus to ask about eternal life. Jesus said to him “One thing you lack, Go, sell everything you have and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come, follow me.” The Bible says “At this the man’s face fell. He went away sad, because he had great wealth.”
The point of the story isn’t that you can’t be rich and go to heaven. The point is that you have to let go of EVERYTHING to follow Jesus and find eternal life.
What are you holding on to? Is it money? It’s great to have money, and even to have lots of it. But if you haven’t RELEASED it to him, it’s holding you back. Other things that can hold us back are pride, popularity, greed, sexual sin, materialism, anger, and ANYTHING that God would want you to release.
What’s holding you back? Let it go today!

As a leader, no matter what you do, you have to reproduce yourself. Call that person an apprentice, a shadow, or whatever you want… you’ve got to have at least one person you are bringing along. Here’s the process from Dave and John Ferguson.
1) I do. You watch. We talk.
2) I do. You help. We talk.
3) You do. I help. We talk.
4) You do. I watch. We talk.
5) You do. Somebody else watches. The process starts over.
Who is your apprentice? What are your thoughts?
We saw this message on March 21 at Bay Area Fellowship San Marcos. Great message! I’ve posted it here in case you missed it.
I watched this video today. It’s a simple “cardboard testimony” video. It’s very moving. It reminded me that it’s all worth it. Ministry is mostly fun for me. Really. But it is also hard at times. Being a leader means there are hard decisions to make. It means there is a target on my back. Sometimes people are a pain in the rear. But this video reminded me that it is ALWAYS worth it. Your thoughts?
