If I had to choose a word to label the season we are heading into not only here at Champion Dance School, but Champion Church, it would have to be Abundancy. The new year has brought new ideas, new energy, and new blessings. Coming off the Jesus is Born season there is almost a tangible spirit of unity in the air. Teams are growing stronger and larger. The church as a whole if growing stronger and larger, and Champion Dance School is no different. Last semester was such an incredible learning season. Kassandra and I took on, undoubtedly, our biggest role to date when we became directors of the school and spent last semester on a roller coaster trying to learn how to navigate on our new adventure. But this semester, something is different. We feel much more settled in to our roles, have made it through the churches two biggest outreaches with flying colors, and grew stronger in our faith than ever before.
It was right around the end of Jesus is Born, we began to ask ourselves what would our lives look like over the next 6 months? Were we going to have more students, more teachers, more classes, would there be any abundance? Was there going to be developments in our personal lives? What sort of amazing things did God have in store for the entire church? We couldn’t have began to imagine! The last month has been a whirlwind. Our school is growing bigger every day with four new classes, two new teachers, and several beautiful new ballerinas joining our family. Kassandra became engaged on Christmas Eve and is planning her upcoming wedding. Champion Church is introducing new CORE curriculum to strengthen our growing congregation and bring out the Champion in all of us.
“God will provide rain for the seeds you sow. The grain that grows will be abundant.” Isaiah 30:23. We sow seeds of faith, knowing that nothing goes unnoticed in the Kingdom of God. We give to others, knowing that God will never forget to give back to us when we are ready to receive. I am thankful for the abundant season we have come into and know that we are barely scratching the surface of all that God has in store for Champion Church and Champion Dance School.
