One of the questions I’m often asked is: 'How did you transition a traditional church from where you were, to where you are today - and basically, launch a new church?' We knew that we had to be totally above-board in each step, so when the 'fur began to fly' we would be prepared. And we were…very! The firm of Anthony and Middlebrook became, and continues to be, part of our team. David Middlebrook and Matt Anthony are men who deeply love God, and have become very good friends of mine. In every step from the structuring of Bylaws, to policies and procedures, to employment contracts, etc., they have been tremendous. I’m grateful for their help, and more than that, I’m grateful for the close friendships we’ve developed.
