|L to R - Pastors Andy Rowe, Bruce Crews, and Keith Hall|
We also had an evening service, and we three pastors were able to baptize 11 believers! We baptize at a local health club that closes at 6pm on Sunday evenings, and then generously allows us to use their indoor swimming pool for this service. Their ventilation system wasn't working, so as we walked into the pool area, there was a hazy fog floating off of the water. With three ladies leading us in song a cappella, it totally reminded me of the baptism scene from the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou. What a surreal time!
As we were wrapping up the baptisms, Pastor Andy leaned over to me and said, "What a first day!" I am so excited about what God has in store for the Journey Church, its body, and its leaders.
