Last But Not Least - Welcome, Sean!!!
When I talked to Sean about joining our church staff, I think I forgot to mention that he'd have to do things like preach to an empty park on a Thursday afternoon...of course, he does have a very attentive, painted fiberglass dog at his side! Actually, this is part of creating the Sunday service we send out each week on YouTube via email - we need to videotape the service by Thursday so we can get it all together and sent to you first thing Sunday morning....glad to have you on board, Sean!
