One of my objectives this summer is making sure our church arrives at a stage of health. All churches become ill at times. All churches are attacked one way or another. After all, a church is not an organization rather an organism. Its alive and made up of many individual parts where if one hurts, the others hurt along with it.
As stated numerous amounts of times in past blogs, we have been on a mission of change, order, and structure. I’ve never been so desirous of seeing MHC enter in its next stage of influence. In no way was I ever fond of “having church” for the sake of “doing church.” That’s the last thing Miami needs. But what I’m looking for is a strong, healthy, vibrant church who knows what they’re doing, what they want and where they’re going. MHC, we are most definitely on our way…
In many ways, we are rebuilding from basics all over again. And honestly, there is no other way of achieving this. I feel like I’m replanting our church all over again but this time instead of it being my family and a couple of people, it’s my family and a few hundred people. Embracing DIVINE ORDER has a way of “rebooting” our lives and bringing us back to default status.
Last night we had a five-hour elders/board meeting and in my opinion, it was one of the most effective meetings we’ve ever had in terms of structure and order. These are definitely exciting times for all MHCers.
