I’m not usually the guy on the stage.
.
But when I am, I’m probably filming somebody else who actually has the stage.
.
And at this point I wouldn’t have it any other way, whether it is a sermon, a wedding, or something else.
.
It has been a blessing to have this opportunity to tell the story of Team Illinois.
.
One of my favorite parts about this journey is that I get to serve under a group of wise, servant-hearted, christ-like leaders such Pastor Phil, Pastor Gary, Pastor Ron, Pastor Christopher, Pastor Paul, and others.
.
Together, they are leading Team Illinois to play its role in God’s world-wide kingdom mission, spreading the gospel and making disciples.
.
When I turned 25, I dreamed of doing “something” like this.
.
Now, here I am at 26 and it’s not just an idea.
.
It’s a real thing!
.
And I can wait to see what the road to 27 and the years beyond look like.
