There is a concept that you are probably familiar with called open source. 

WATCH this short clip about the concept of "Open Source" as it could apply to the church and the way that we Collaborate with each other!

what happens is that a product is made available for free, and can be redistributed for free, AND, here is the kicker… it can be modified at will. 

So someone may have a great idea…

and they put it out there… and put out every step that they took to get there… and then SOMEONE ELSE takes all of the research and work that the first person did, and they build on to that research, to tailer that program to meet a DIFFERENT need, or just to add on to it and make it better. 

and I started thinking about that as it applies to my life… and as it applies to the ministry… as it applies to MY dreams… AND YOUR DREAMS… and everything that God has put in all of our hearts to accomplish on HIS BEHALF…

and I realized… if every time God gives me a dream, I hold on to that dream, and I try to run with that dream, and I have to be in every detail of that dream… that dream is not coming to life and if it does, it isn’t going to reach anyone… 

God has given us all dreams, but one thing that he showed me long ago, is that they are HIS DREAMS… and He births them in my heart and in the hearts of OTHERS… and the only way that they will ever come to pass is if other people catch it… and I dare say, BUILD ON TO IT. 

Make it BETTER. 

We are Better Together.
