Building on the Shoulders of Giants

A few weeks back within Sunday Worship, we watched a short video titled Standing on the Shoulders of Giants.  It shared quotes and themes from many of the men and women who made the original building of this church campus possible. We are grateful to them for their vision.

Likewise I want to thank our own present day giants who made this project possible…and by no means is this everyone, just the ones I have had the privilege to work closely with. Here are my ideas…

  • Larry Kiser, Long Range Planning Chair 2008 - It was a series of meetings the LRPC held in the Williams Building and the Lake Lodge during the year that really gave birth to the idea of a Master Plan for our campus. A vision was born…
  • Don Taft, EPIC Chair 2008-2012 - Don and the EPiC team planted a small kernel of vision seed and from it grew a wonderful Master Plan that made the vision visible and almost real…
  • Jeff Rogers, LRPC Chair 2012 - Jeff and the LRPC took up the vision and made the decision to make Phase One of the Master Plan very real. From that idea, they crafted the beginning Unending Possibilities (UP) campaign to jump-start the fund raising process…
  • Ken Edhal, Now Is The Time Chair 2012 - Ken and his group took UP upwards and created the NITT campaign that will provide 40% of the funding required to create the Williams Center! A wonderful start…
  • Bobby Morrow - Our senior pastor who leads by inspiration plus example and has a wonderful passion for the Lord and His church! Thank you Bobby for all you are and do! We would not be here today if not for your vision and strategic plan born of your prayers and passion!

When you see one of these giants in the next few weeks, shake their hand and tell them Thank You for being men of vision and Godly spirit! We owe them much!
