I read a couple of days ago that Pastor Rick Warren (author of the Purpose Driven Life) and Saddleback Church are celebrating their 30th anniversary on April 4th. This is the same day that Center City Church opens to the community. Just this morning, I read that Pastor Steven Furtick felt God’s call to start Elevation Church five years ago today while driving around Charlotte.

It just got me thinking: everyone starts somewhere. We are in the beginning stages of Center City Church. And I’ve taken the advice of so many church planters that have gone before me. They all said – each one of them – to enjoy the early days. I can honestly say that we have. Tomorrow will come. And that will be exciting, too. But we never get the beginning back. This is the most exciting time of our lives and I’m loving the ride.

What could you start today? After all, everyone starts somewhere.
