Thanks for praying for the Day with Joel and Mario in Myrtle Beach, SC and for the JCG board meeting. God exceeded our expectations and really answered your prayers.
The Wednesday “day with Joel and Mario” was the first such event, and I had my bouts of anxiousness. Yet, Rob Campbell led us in a very friendly, relaxed style. The 12 pastors and leaders, who were present for the event, were able to interact and share freely.
I spoke twice, Mario Vega spoke twice, and both Rob Campbell and Steve Cordle also spoke. The participants were able to ask questions, add comments, and interact among themselves. Jeff Tunnell and Celyce Comiskey did a superb job of making the details work (baskets, refreshments, etc.).
The evaluations were excellent, so we had a time of rejoicing at the board meeting on Thursday.
Here’s just a few of the things I’ll share with you from the board meeting on Thursday (more later):
1. We’ll add a TWITTER sidebar to the JCG front page. By the time you read this, it should be up and running on the JCG home page.
2. We’ll have another Day with Joel and Mario next year on February 24, 2010, from 9 a.m. 5 p.m. Let me know if you’re interested (firstname.lastname@example.org). The price of the day will be much cheaper, and we’ll have special prices for pastors who bring their lay leaders
3. We’d like to do the same thing (day with Joel and Mario) in additional cities in the future.
We appreciate your partnership,
Joel and team
