Monday Wake Up

It was a bit of a crazy weekend. We launched our sixth campus at Park. It seems like the preparation for launching a campus has become a bit customary at this point, but it never loses it’s excitement when we can stand worshiping with the body of believers in a new church that was not present in that neighborhood previously. To know that God is using us to spread the gospel to different parts of the city of Chicago is an amazing thing. And the fact that I get to be even a small part of that is great!

So now we’re at 6 campuses and 10 services across all of our campuses each weekend. But I still stick to my strategy of live-tweeting services each weekend, because it works! How do you tweet in a multi-site environment?

Praise God for standing room only in our launch service!
