Just now heading to bed (1am) after putting in another late night working on our fundraising materials. We are designing and printing an eight page, 8.5″x5.5″ mini-magazine to send out. Looks like we are nearing the finished product. I just sent it off to be reviewed by Dara’s sister, Tori (she’s an editor).

We have worked really hard on this piece. I am a big believer that excellence is communicated in many different ways. Dara and I have been dreaming about this moment (planting Center City Church) for over six years now. I want people to see our passion and our commitment. I am about to ask every person I know (and some that I don’t) to invest into our family and our ministry. I feel like it honors them to give them something that is sharp and informative.

I’m so grateful for the help of Will Morgan, Patrick Bader and my brother, Brandon, for all their help in designing this magazine. Couldn’t have done this one alone. Their commitment to excellence and eye for creativity really pushed me on this one. So excited to see the final product once it’s in hand!

Here’s a sneak peek at the cover (designed by Will Morgan):
