Last night we celebrated the Dream Builders at our church….those who sew into the lives of everyone who walks through the doors of Peoples Church.
If there is one thing I have learned to do over the last 11 years, it’s how to Dream! Not just for silly things, those kinds of things are easy to dream about. Like the dream of laying in a hammock on an island in the middle of nowhere, for a week or two or even three. Don’t get me wrong those things are okay to dream about, but the dream I am talking about is the dream our Pastor has poured into our hearts over the last 11 years. A dream that involves putting self aside and using your time, talents and passions to see lives changed for Christ. He demonstrates this by his faithfulness to the call God has placed on his heart. That call involves being committed to serving in the surrounding communities of Oklahoma City.
The first Sunday we sat under Pastor Herbert’s ministry, we knew God had brought us to that service, on that day to hear this man’s heart. We were excited to hear that his heart was to take the church outside of the 4 walls into all Oklahoma City communities to see lives changed for Christ. From a closet full of everything necessary to have church in a movie theater to 2 campuses and a 3rd launching later this summer, God has done what he promised~He is using ordinary people to do extraordinary things in order to see lives changed in our city. People from all walks of life with different gifts and talents are serving together each week to build the dream and to see more changed lives. They are the Dream Builders!
Keith and I have never thought about being anywhere else, except right where we are…pouring our hearts into a ministry that is about serving others. We love being used by God to see others grow into a relationship with Him. We are excited to be Dream Builders.
God has a plan and we are always moving forward in it…..

forward with the plans God has for your life and
the dreams He has placed within you.” (unknown)
