Explorers Wanted.

I sent this email out to spread the word about Community of Grace. If you know of anyone who lives in the Twin Cities area and is interested, please send them my way. Thanks.

As he walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the lake—for they were fishermen. And he said to them, 'Follow me, and I will make you fish for people.' Immediately they left their nets and followed him. As he went from there, he saw two other brothers, James son of Zebedee and his brother John, in the boat with their father Zebedee, mending their nets, and he called them. Immediately they left the boat and their father, and followed him.
-Matthew 4:18-22

Dear Friends,

Community of Grace is looking for a few good people.

As many of you know, about two years ago, I helped start a new church called Community of Grace. The community has had its ups and downs over the last two years, but we have made a difference in the lives of people here in the Twin Cities.

As we near our second anniversary, I'm sending out an email to seek people who are willing to join this ragtag bunch. Since we started in 2004, we have been a small group that meets for worship. This small group has done some wonderful things, such as raise $1000 for the Minnesota AIDS Project. But for Community of Grace to thrive, we need a slightly larger group that can work together as a team to do God's work in the world.

This is where you come in.

We are looking for 15-25 people who would be willing to commit to being part of this new church. We are looking for solid people who are ready for an adventure, believe in the vision of Community of Grace and are ready to contribute their piece to a shared vision. I know that many of you know people like this or at least, know people who know people like this. Talk to your friends. Share this email and the attachment with them. Go to our website to learn a little more about us and pass that on to some "spiritual thrill-seeker" that you happen to know.

Who knows...maybe it's you that is looking a for an adventure!

If you find someone that is crazy enough to join us in our journey, feel free to have them contact me. I can be reached at

When Jesus called the disciples, he was calling them to leave their ordinary lives and join an adventure, and what an adventure it was. God still calls each one of us today, to live lives for others.

Thanks and I look forward to receiving messages from fellow Explorers.
