The Blog Begins!

These two "beginnings" simply belong together....the beginning of a church and the beginning of a blog! It's poetic. Just a few short weeks ago we opened the doors of ridge church to the public. Literally years of personal and corporate prayers and preparations went into the formation of Ridge Church. I can't explain the excitement we all felt...the anticipation as we opened the doors and silently thought "We hope someone shows up!" And they did! The journey for ridge church did not begin with our public launch but is was a definite marker...a milestone in the journey.

One of my colleagues, Carey Nieuwhof, recently said about starting ridge church "I hope that it is much more than a fun ride...I hope it is a deep meaningful experience" Wow! That is our prayer and gratefully our experience so far.
