>There are no words to explain the weekend we had in New York City.  It was the most incredible, fulfilling weekend I have ever experienced in my life.

To give a little background, it goes like this.  After years of not having any communication, Adam and his college room/teammate Carl Lentz had began to talk again.  They have one of those friendships that years could pass by but when they’re together again it’s like a day has passed.  At the time, Carl and his wife Laura, were pastors at Wavechurch in VA Beach.  But since then Carl and Laura have been called to New York City by God to plant a church.  They have teammate up Hillsong (a thriving church that has many locations throughout Europe) to start HillsongNYC.

It has been an amazing ride thus far but on Sunday night it was their first night of Encounter; the official launch of HillsongNYC.  Over 5,000 people gather for 3 different services at the Salvation Army Center in Union Square.  The atmosphere was amazing.  God was certainly moving!  People joked about us staying and being there for all 3 services but I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

I met some of the most amazing, kind-hearted people to walk this earth.  Their love filled the air and their love for Jesus and desire to have an impact on a city that many people don’t know which direction their walking in is so strong.

November 14th is their next Encounter night.  It is in your best interested to be there!  Fly, drive, ride the train!  Whatever it takes… be there.
