It is just a few weeks into 2013 and we are getting ready to hit the road fast and furious! We have so many exciting things planned in 2013 we can't wait to get going! God has given Michelle and I a vision for our ministry and we can't wait to see what God is going to do in us and through us! I want to give you a glimpse into what our next few months look like.
Our first conference of the year, CPC (Children's Pastors Conference), in beautiful Orlando, FL. We get to hang out with thousands of children's pastors and share our ministry and music with them. (But we don't get to hang out with the Mouse when we are there, so sad.) Soon, and I mean very soon, after that we head to St. Louis and Birmingham and Austin for 3 more conferences. Yeah, our heads will be spinning, but this is what we love and are called to do!
We will be home for a bit, then we will be leaving on a jet plane to go Down Under to the land of Oz! We have been blessed with the opportunity to travel to Australia for 6 week to work with the amazing worship team at Warnbro Community Church in Perth, Australia. While we are there we will also get to do concerts and lead worship at schools and Family Nights. We cannot wait to get down there!
We arrive home at the end of 6 weeks to head to 2 more conferences and have a great line up of concerts and leading worship at different churches and all of this happens before the end of April!
I don't tell you this to brag or say "Hey, look at us!" But I want to tell you these things so that you will know how to pray for us. We will be on the road and in the air ALOT in the next few months, so I ask you to pray for our safety. We will be coming in contact with many different churches, ministries and pastors, and I ask you to pray that we will be able to communicate our heart and our message clearly.
We are so excited about 2013 and the potential growth of our ministry and the opportunity to let so many new people and churches know about us and what God has called us to do. This is going to be a great year and it has barely started! We will keep you up to date on the latest where-a-bouts of the JGB on our Facebook page, so be sure to check in with us there to find out the latest news. www.facebook.com/justingravesband If you will be at any of these events, please come up and say 'Hi!' We would love to meet you and shake your hand! See you on the road!
