Giglio and Tomlin to plant church.Posted: October 10, 2008
I know, I know. This was announced in May, but I’m going to comment on it anyway.
Louie Giglio and Chris Tomlin are teaming up to plant a church in Atlanta, Georgia. The first time I heard this I freaked out. Giglio has become one the most effective communicators of the Gospel and Tomlin was named by Christian Copyright Licensing International as the most sung Christian artist in the United States. These are two guys that I have a ton of respect for and are being used by God as effectively as anyone in our faith right now. There is no news on when the church will open its doors, but you can bet it will already be a megachurch (2,000 members or more) on the first Sunday service they hold.
Personally, I think it’s awesome. We definitely need to say a prayer for everyone involved with this church plant because they will undoubtedly reach many people in a short amount of time and we can only hope that it is a tool that God uses to infuse some excitement in that community for the Lord.
