Photos and Audio from Starfish Network Conference and my thoughts…


It was great to be with all these people on Saturday.

I felt the Lord confirm some real tangible things to Lori and I.

1) To keep on keeping on with our walk with Him and the divine appointments we have with people, to encourage and strengthen – being like Barnabas

2) To keep focused on our apostolic and Kingdom role and function, and for Lori that includes the ministry she has through her work as a crisis worker specializing in addiction issues – total Kingdom thing. For me that means the apostolic council that we and Al, Jerry and Ed are a part of, and creatively working in itinerant ministry, the kind of stuff I addressed in my own presentation, where I can go, with a team (five fold team), to build and strengthen existing works, and help and assist in equipping and releasing others in the work of establishing new relational house church communities and networks. This is my apostolic and Kingdom calling, where I find my role and function.

3) Lori and I DO NOT need to establish a new house church, so that we get tied down and looked upon as the “leaders” (did that, bought the t-shirt, and not doing that again!). BUT, I can assist people locally to establish one, and be supportive, but not engaged as a “leader”.

4) Lori and I are praying about finding a place where we can be ourselves and relate and connect and not have expectations placed upon us, where we can support, encourage and strengthen in a local setting. We just want build relationship locally and not “lead” in any way shape or form. Just want to share the life we have in Christ with others.

So if you are into praying for anything, pray that the Lord leads us to the relational connection we need locally so that we can share life together, and bless and encourage what is already going on. It is NOT ABOUT US. It is about what Jesus is doing, and we just come along and bless what He is doing.

I feel so much peace, grace and freedom right now. It is quite incredible.

Here are some links for all of you who were not able to attend.
