Getting More Settled in Oklahoma

What’s another sign of me getting more settled in Oklahoma? I’m now able to get both of the cars in the garage. I wish I could say that I’m able to get the car in because I’ve completely organized the garage, but…that would be a lie. The truth is that I’ve pushed all the junk off to the sides just enough to get the car in. Someday, I’ll get around to organizing it.

So now when I leave in the morning, I won’t have to face situations like this anymore…

Getting More Settled in Oklahoma

Customer Service Experiences Needed

Hi everyone. I need your help. I’m giving a presentation next week on customer service and would love to share examples from you on good and bad customer service experiences. What was a memorable customer service experience that you had recently? What made it memorable? How was the conversation you had with the cable company? How was it interacting with people at the DMV? Did you have a good experience getting your car’s oil change? What could have been done differently to make it a good experience? You get the idea.

I’d love to hear from you soon. Comment away…

More About the South Tulsa Campus Launch

It was a lot of fun helping out last weekend with the launch of the 13th LifeChurch.tv campus. Moving carts and plugging in things brought back some fond memories. It reminded me of the setup that we had to do at my previous church. That church was a portable church for 10 years. While some things were the same between the two setup experiences, some things were very different. The excitement and the camaraderie between the volunteers were similar. But the amount of volunteers and technology used were far greater at LifeChurch. The South Tulsa Campus team was able to mobilize over 200 volunteers to help with the setup. The pictures below will give you a sense of how much technology is used for the weekend experience.

While it was fun to reminisce about the past, the most fulfilling part of the weekend was seeing people raising their hands at the end of the message. Those hands being raised signified people committing their lives to God. That’s what all the setup and technology is for…changed lives!

More About the South Tulsa Campus Launch

Exciting Times at LifeChurch.tv

There have been a lot of neat things going on at my church since I started six weeks ago. In December, the Fort Worth campus moved from the school they were meeting in to their permanent facility. It’s a great location that’s near a major highway. Their previous location was hidden in a housing development. Since the move, the attendance at the campus has grown quite a bit. The Fort Worth campus is the largest campus outside of Oklahoma.

South Tulsa Campus Sign

This past weekend, I was in Tulsa to help with the launch of the second Tulsa area campus. The original Tulsa campus was bursting at the seams with 3000 people on the weekend. So, a second campus was launched out of that. Several hundred are now meeting at a school in Bixby, a suburb south of Tulsa. It was neat to see a school transformed into a church. It brought back fond memories. More on that tomorrow.

And also this week, I just learned about a family from here in Oklahoma who felt God was calling them to establish a LifeChurch presence in England. So without any financial assistance from the church, they picked up their family and moved to London. You can read more about their story here.

As you can see, God’s doing some really cool things here. It’s an honor to be a part of it.
