Welcome Pastor Andy!

Today was a milestone day at my church.  Today we voted to call Andy Schulze as our new pastor. I could not be more excited.  Here are the top ten reasons why I am excited he's at SBC:

10. He spent the last several years as my kid's youth pastor, so I know he loves them and that youth are a priority.

9. I have never seen him ask anyone to do anything he didn't do along side of them.  He scooped ice cream at the projects, and has cleaned lots of toilets around the campus. Hands down one of the hardest working men I've ever met.

8. He believes that God has a huge work for us to do, really believes it, and even more, encourages us to really believe and seek out what God has for us!

7. He makes me laugh in the middle of his messages with hilarious stories.

6. He is ready to do church in a different way.....Great news for someone tired of doing things the same old way and getting the same old results.

5. He empowers minstry leaders to do what God is calling them to do without micro managing.  He believes in what God has told you to do in your minstry.

4. It's not about the money...believe me...there's no way it's about the money.

3. He is transparent, answering any question without defensiveness, and openly admitting his mistakes.

2. He loves his wife and kids.

1. He will be up at midnight at the church, leading our church members in a prayer vigil every night for two weeks,for our mission team while they are in Kenya.  Now that is just plain ole awesome. Imagine the power that God will unleash on our team!

Andy,   I can't wait to see what God is going to do in our midst.  The whole thing is about to tip on over and we are about to get soaked in God's goodness!
