Community Lay Director Spring 2018

De Colores Great Banquet Community,

Praying that I find you well. I have officially, officially taken over the reigns as your next Community Lay Director. When I said, “Yes.” To my selection as the CLD, I had mixed feelings about God’s plans for my life. As I began my prayer, all kind of excuses to decline ran through my mind. The one excuse that stands out to me, was me telling God, “But I just want to be a servant.” He said, “But you are.” The reason I mentioned this in my announcement to the community is to just say I am a servant and I in no way want to be exalted for doing the work of the Lord.

The Spring Great Banquet team members have all been selected. If you were not chosen to be on a team, please be patient. I am reiterating to lay directors that we need new faces involved so that we all get to know one another to fellowship and continue servitude in the Great Banquet Community. I have had conversations with community members who see our numbers going down at candlelight and closings. I am committed to the Great Banquet model and how it has worked in our community for all these years.

I am asking your prayers for the upcoming season, the team, the community, and the guest who have decided to try God. Please pray for me as I learn my new role as the Community Lay Director. Feel free to contact me if there is anything that needs addressing and anything that I can bring up in our upcoming (Jan 22nd) Board meeting.

(270) 821-8799 Please leave a brief message for me to return your call.

May God continue to bless you now and forever!


Your Brother in Christ

#179 Lay Director – Eric Taylor

What the being Lay Director meant to me: For me, being chosen as the Lay Director was very humbling.  To know that other Christians in the community can see Christ in me enough to put me on their mind, and to know they are all led my God Himself...well just humbling. ...
