It's Time to PAR-TAY!


I can hardly believe that it has been 1 YEAR SINCE I BEGAN BLOGGING!

So I thought I would host an on-line party today!

We’ll pretend to have some cupcakes and hot tea (because these are some of my favorite things) and reminisce the year here at

This year has been a blast!  I have met so many new friends and shared many more memories with old friends.

I’m very excited about what this next year holds.  Here are some things that I hope we accomplish on the blog this next year:

  • To share our life – the joys and the struggles – I’ll be sharing mine and I hope you’ll share yours too.
  • To continue to challenge us to grow to be even better leaders.
  • To encourage, resource and network church leaders
  • To connect our Cross Point family from all of our campuses
  • To love, support, encourage and celebrate each other!

I’m sure even more will happen in between these things.  I can’t wait to see!

What would you like to add to the list?

    Congratulations!! How about adding some coffee? I am a coffee junkie. I love getting to know Nashville campus people and hearing how similar our life journeys are. I’m praying for you as we move into a very big busy and hopefully blessing filled 2009 for Cross Point.

    Happy Anniversary! I agree with Laurie. I have enjoyed “meeting” Nashville CP members through your blog. I would love to have some kind of CP Blogging get-together, so that we can all meet each other in person.

    Happy Anniversary Jenni,

    Your blog has given me a way to feel more connected to you. I enjoy reading about what you write as well as reading what your listeners have to say. It seems to close the gap on the distance between us and the sadness I feel at times that we do not have the time together we use to. Thanks so much and keep it up.

    Love Dad
