100 MOMENTS

A friend of mine spoke these words a few years back when a group of leaders were in Yosemite for a leadership adventure,

“Don’t collect things…..collect experiences.” – Mark Batterson

Over the past year we have  been very intentional about that at Discovery Prescott.

Another  friend text me this last  week:

“If you never look back you won’t know what you accomplished.” – Kyle Hull

Here are some moments captured in pictures, of some of the intentional  moments at Discovery this year.

Some Questions To Ask This New Year

happy-new-year-from-dc
Questions for the New Year!

It’s miserable trying to play a part for which you’re ill suited. It’s like walking in shoes that don’t fit. So this coming year ask yourself: What am I good at? What do I enjoy doing most? What accomplishments make me feel best? List 5 moments in your life when you were acutely aware of this sensation. Does this reveal anything about your purpose? If money was not a consideration what would you want to do to fill your days? How does this compare with where you are now? What one small step can you take right now – one phone call made, one letter written, one e-mail sent – to move you toward your true calling? What have you learned about your purpose through failures? Are some areas clearly not a part of your calling at this point? Who do you admire for the way they’ve applied their talents? How are you like them? What can you learn from them? How would you describe your vision for your life this year? Five years from now? Ten? Who are the people in your life who really “get” who you are? Have you asked them what they think your purpose might be? Have they given indications of how they think you should use your talents? If you could write you own obituary, what would you want it to say? What would you like to be remembered for?
While we never arrive at our final destination in this life, we can get on the right path, with the right tools, making the right choices along our way!

TEN TANGIBLES FOR 2016-

1. ______________________________________________________________

6. ______________________________________________________________

Seven Questions To Help Us Fly Straight

SPACE
DISCOVERY IS MORE ABOUT CREATING A COMMUNITY THAT HELPS PEOPLE BEGIN A CONVERSATION ABOUT THEIR FAITH ….WE ARE MORE THAN  TRYING TO CONVINCE PEOPLE TO BELIEVE LIKE US.
_____________________________________________________
AS WE CREATE A SPACE AND A CULTURE WHERE PEOPLE FEEL SAFE TO DISCUSS THEIR REAL ISSUES,  A CONVERSATION TAKES PLACE AND WE LET THE GENIUS (God’s Holy Spirit) TAKE OVER FROM THERE.
HERE ARE SEVEN QUESTIONS THAT WILL HELP US FLY STRAIGHT AND NAVIGATE THROUGH THIS NEW YEAR OF 2016.
1. Why are you a part of Discovery Prescott?

 

2. What keeps you here?

3. Have you ever contemplated stepping away from church? Why or why not?

4. How would you describe your relationship with God right now?

5. How has your relationship with God changed over the past few years?

6. What effect, if any, has Discovery had on your relationship with God?

7. What would need to change here to help you grow more toward Jesus’ call to love God and love others?

Thank you for taking the time.

A Conversation With Nolan Howell Of Bend Oregon

Last week we brought Nolan Howell and his wife to Prescott to meet our tribe and just start a conversation.

We talked for three days about the soul of our two “trail head cities” –  Prescott Arizona and Bend Oregon.

Here is the conversation that was recorded at Discovery Church in Prescott.

Also, here are a few pics of our epic weekend out and about.
