See you soon...!

I have been greatly blessed by my time out of the pulpit and out of the office the last several days. Teresa and I spent a couple of days together in San Antonio while my parents watched our kids; I feel refreshed; my “batteries” are charged; and I can’t wait to see you all again!

In recent months, God has been sending us a fresh visitation of His Spirit at Hillcrest Church as we have experienced a powerful renewal in worship, going ever further into His word, His presence, and His harvest. I believe He wants to do even greater things among us in the coming New Year.

A very important key to the harvest of blessings many of us have reaped throughout 2006 is the seed we sowed during our 21 Days of Prayer and Fasting last January. Don’t forget to prepare to join the rest of our church family again during this special time beginning January 1st and continuing through January 21st. The worship center on our campus will be open for corporate prayer every evening at 7pm, and we are also going to set aside time for personal prayer every morning at 7am, whether at home, during our commute, at school, at work, or wherever else we may be.

Be sure to make plans to be in service with us this coming Sunday (December 10th) as Teresa and I welcome our special guests, John and Lisa Bevere. They are both true followers of Jesus who carry a rich anointing on their lives and have been blessed with unusual favor in many of the world's leading churches. The author of several best-selling books such as The Bait of Satan and Drawing Near, and the host of The Messenger television broadcast viewed in over 200 nations, John preached one of the most powerful messages I have ever heard earlier this year during the WME conference we hosted. I believe John’s "no-nonsense" approach to applying solid, Biblical principles to daily life will be a tremendous blessing to every one of us who come with open hearts, expecting to hear a fresh word from the Lord.

Both John and Lisa, who is also a best-selling author in her own right of titles including Kissed the Girls and Made Them Cry, will have many of their materials available for sale immediately following the service in the Atrium. Come prepared to take advantage of this opportunity to add some of their life-changing print and video materials to your personal library. They would also make great Christmas gifts for those you love...!

See you soon…!

Pastor Mark
