The Commish...

As I sit and finish up this week's message I'm looking forward to the upcoming weeks ahead. At the end of the month we will have a comissioning service for a man named Calvin Allen. Calvin feels led to full time ministry. He is unsure of when or how everything will go down but the thing he knows is that he wants to obey God's calling and boy have I seen that up close over the last year. To refresh your mind, Calvin is the guy who after being layed off from his company ultimately decided to live for significance and not so much success. Last July when Calvin made me aware of his job situation I went to him and challenged him to live as a missionary for a year within our church. Get a lower paying job and just see what God would do. Well God chose to revamp Calvin's world. Gone are the days when he'd wake up looking for the next promotion or looking to fire people who may be in his way... Today he's a man who views his job as his ministry and he's taken HUGE steps to organize his life around this new view.

So here in a few weeks we get to affirm Calvin's calling and encourage him as he moves forward in leading people God's way instead of the way of the bottom line. I'm pumped about this. Calvin will be the first of what I hope will be many men who are called from within our body to lead the charge in God's army and fight for Shalom as a leader of men.
