Inaugural Service – January 26, 2014

Kip McKean – January 26, 2014

Greetings from Santa Barbara! Yesterday, on a cold and rainy morning, the Lord blessed the 11 member Santa Barbara Mission Team (with only Elena & me visiting) at the Inaugural Service of the Santa Barbara International Christian Church with an attendance of 32 adults!

As is the custom of the SoldOut Movement, all mission teams are
celebrated with a tasty specialty cake emblematic of their cities!

One of our most gifted young preachers, Richie McDonnell, delivered a very impassioned sermon simply entitled, Zeal For God! One visitor that I talked to immediately following this moving service exclaimed, “I just love the energy here! I’ve never seen any other Christian group like it before!” Continue to pray for Richie, his incredible wife Elizabeth, and our other dear disciples in what is already a tremendously dynamic congregation!

With 32 in attendance at the Inaugural Service – almost two visitors for every disciple – Jason leads a powerful communion song!

It is so remarkable that at just 22 years old, Richie’s enthusiastic
and in-depth preaching of the Word moves the entire Inaugural Service crowd!
