Why You Can’t Focus

Ever wonder why it’s so hard to accomplish things that actually matter? Why your “dreams” don’t come true. Why it feels like your a on a treadmill, worn out all the time and not going anywhere?    Heres a word for ya: F.O.C.U.S.    “One reason so few of us achieve what we truly want is that we never direct our focus; we never concentrate our power. Most people dabble their way through life, never deciding to master anything in…

Downtown Revitalization – Christian, please read

Slogan for a recent initiative called Energize Downtown. I’m a pastor in Fort St. John. Have been for 11 years, and frankly, I’m tired of the never-ending stream of negative horsepoop that is spoken over our city, even if it’s only about the weather (how many times do you have to complain about the cold – If you don’t like it, well, leave or something). And of course, the new plan on deck to energize our downtown core is getting…

Building Blog #19 – Evangel as a Third Place

Evangel's new facility on 100 Street will likely be known as Evangel Place, a multi-use facility that will serve as a "third" place in our community.           How amiable and warm is your dwelling place. ~ Ps. 84:1 Build the House – Embrace a City has been an incredible journey of discovery for our church community. Learning how to stretch beyond our comfort zones, experiencing a new kind of transience in the in-between, practicing patience with…

No WAY It’s Worth It For a Bigger Building!

I just spent the weekend with a number of great friends who lead churches just like Evangel.  It was a time of encouragement, learning, and accountability: as each of us shared our story – the victories and the struggles.  When my turn came, I shared how  my number one tension in pastoring these days has been coping with the size of the project we are now in (Build the House).  Of course that included accommodating growth, meeting deadlines, raising finances, interim…

Building Blog #18

‚ÄčIt’s been awhile since I’ve last blogged, but trust me when I say it’s not indicative of inactivity – there’s a lot going on!  Let me highlight a few things: OCCUPANCY IS IN SIGHT!   By occupancy I’m referring to that Sunday in the near future when we can actually have church in our new facility.  In fact, all our efforts and priorities right now are to get us to this point.  Hopefully we’ll see this happen sometime in July.…

Evangel Downtown – The Dream

A year ago we sat down with some of the movers and shakers of our community, and entertained the idea of having a church in the downtown core at 10040 – 100 St.  At 3 Sunday morning services (to accommodate our growing church family), we really needed to consider a larger facility.  This building came up as a possible solution to a growing church.               "Does a church like Evangel fit the direction of…
