We received our assessment report this morning from Acts 29, and we are being recommending as candidates for the network. This means I now have to complete the next two phases of the application process before full membership is granted. The assessment is not simply a "yes or no" recommendation, but a close look at a planter's/pastor's strengths and weaknesses. Our assessors (Bob, Steve and Kyle) were very helpful in clarifying my areas of weakness and made appropriate suggestions for me. The one condition that was given in order for me to continue was that I submit to a coaching relationship with a trained church planting coach. All of this - the recommendation, and the insights of our assessment team - is very encouraging for us. Please continue to pray for us and Redeemer as we move forward.
