Immeasurably More

These are exciting times at Faith Lutheran.  More than a year ago (May 2018) our voters committed to moving forward in the fulfillment of our strategic plan.  At that time, we voted to engage Capital Funding Services of the Lutheran Church Extension Fund to help resource our mission, vision, and strategic plan.  Under the leadership of Rev. Preston Wagner, LCEF consultant, our capital campaign began in late June.  We started constructing our core* leadership team prior to Rev. Wagner’s first trip to our campus.  His second trip August 16 & 17 he spent two more days on our campus training the remainder of our leadership team.   This coming Sunday our Immeasurably More Leadership Team will be commissioned in both services.  Here is our Immeasurably More Leadership Team:
 
Bob Angrisani, Campaign Director*
Russell Couch, Inform Director*
Stacy Sinatra, Campaign Coordinator*
Janee’ Gaffney, Prayer Director*
Jessica York, Communications Director*
Ron Shultheiss, Lead Gifts Director
Colleen Umphrey, Initial Commitments Director
Debbie Schellman, Commitment Celebration Director
Austin Dukes, Youth Emphasis Director
Claire Fuhler, Children’s Emphasis Director
Greg Sinatra, Friends of the Congregation
Paul Arndt, Follow Up Director
Principal Mike Wolber, School Emphasis Director
 
I am thankful to our God for the leadership team we have assembled, and for many more who will be joining the groups.

In addition to training our leadership, Rev. Wagner facilitated a “think tank” event on July 16 @ 7 pm as part of the “inform phase” of our campaign.  The conversation centered around the phrase “Imagine if….” It was an evening of robust discussion about the Lord’s plans and our future together.

Our campaign is just getting started.  Be watching for more information about our kick-off event on September 15.

I have two prayer requests: first, keep our leadership team in prayer; and second, begin praying with me that God will do “Immeasurably More” among us, not just in this capital campaign, but in our ministry together as we strive to Connect People to Jesus. For I truly believe, we have a God who “…is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.” Ephesians 3:20-21
