The Beginning (Week 1)

I was positive that God had MAJOR plans for this year, He had been stirring me all summer, but I had no idea that this wasn’t just between me and my close friends. Turns out, God was instigating relationships, urging followers, changing hearts, and revealing himself all over the place. It’s one thing to find a couple people who are really in tune with the spirit and want to see God’s will carried out in a major way – it’s completely different when thirty people all share nearly the exact same vision for the same school!

Our divinely-planned community all started with a simple Facebook message aimed at getting the believers at Coronado Highschool talking. I wish I could take the credit, but this wonderful girl beat me to it! Through extreme excitement that God was connecting us we all planned to meet together at 7:30 Sunday, September 11th. Tonight.

Pizza, fellowship, discussion, and prayer dominated the meeting, each of us just in awe of simply our willingness to gather in order to discuss God’s glory revealed to our school. It was insanely awesome. We partly organized our school’s See You at the Pole and prayed feverishly for guidance, boldness, and unity. This is what the church is supposed to be about.

Follow this blog, a testament to God’s love, peace, joy, glory, and ability to overcome one of the most sin-filled environments: highschool.

Father, let Heaven and Earth Collide
