Yesterday I was invited to speak at a local church that is in its early stages called Victory Community Church. It does not have a website yet. The primary leader, Sammy Ortiz, is a great guy – very teachable, very much a lifelong learner type.
There was a great spirit there. They have been at it for two years. They are a part of a planting group that is headed by a good friend of mine, Rice Broocks. Rice has spoken at a number of events where I too have spoken.
I suspect great things lie ahead for VCC – mostly because they are so teachable and hungry to reach out to the city around them. There is a huge connection between a teachable attitude and forward progress in the flow of God’s Spirit. It is when people stop asking for help / stop asking questions that rigor mortis sets in – whether a “body” realizes they are dead or not.
