varsity update

Posted by slykwyk on April 30, 2010

So you want to know what is going on here in Chapel Hill and with our new church plant?  Read on…

Launch Team

We are in the process of finding our launch team and setting up our first meetings.  Getting excited to see how God builds this group!  Praying for people to join us…

Meeting locations

I began checking out some local venues for meeting space on Sundays.  We still have a time before we launch, but one thing you learn in church planting is never wait!  I found a great place in Carrboro called The ArtsCenter.  It houses 2 theaters and other rooms for use.  Working to get in to see the place soon and hoping it is a possibility.

We are also looking at other options – a movie theater, local schools, possible 24/7 space – we’ll see how it goes!

Fundraising

This is the FUN part of church planting (sarcasm intended)!  Every church planter I talk to right now is struggling in this area.  It just means you have to be creative.  So I continue to make phone calls asking for support, figuring out if I can handle living on only one kidney, trying to sell my dog, and whatever else I can come up with!  It is an adventure but one that in the end can pay HUGE dividends!

BTW, if you pray, throw up a couple for us this week.  We are waiting to hear about a couple of potential large donors for our church.  We are asking God to be at work in their decisions!

Staffing

I have begun the process of looking for additional staffing for Varsity.  I am out looking for part time and full time and no time people.  Praying the right people will be evident and stand up as we move forward.

Good stuff is happening here!  Keep praying for us and shoot, if you have 10, 20,000 sitting in a bank account you want to get rid of, I know of a way to get a tax break!
