O.K. Here is the deal. For three years I have been wrestling with the idea of planting a church. About 5 months ago I begin to seriously pray in that direction. It is now official after many meetings and prayer times and adjustments; I am launching a church plant on Sunday September 13 in Clovis NM. This is a joint effort by the Baptist Convention of New Mexico and Central Baptist Church. My family and I are very excited to see what God will do through this process and are grateful for our home church (Central Baptist Church) feeling God’s leading in this new endeavor. I covet everyone’s prayers during this transition and my hope and prayer is that God would be glorified through it all. If you have any questions you can email me at derek@thevinecc.tv or check out the website @ http://www.thevinecc.tv . I realize this may not make sense to everyone and it sure does not make sense to me, but when God calls us out of comfort for something He is in charge of then there is a sense of willingness we must have.
