Meet a Church Planter: Aaron Dailey in Phoenix
This summer, Aaron Dailey brought his seven-year-old Life Connection Church into the Network, becoming a full member of Acts 29. We are excited to see how Acts 29 is growing in the Southwest!
A29: How did you become involved with Acts 29?
Aaron: I was looking for a relationship with people of like-faith and we reached out to Acts 29. We have gotten exactly what we were looking for: we have met some great dudes and gotten to share resources and ideas.
A29: What were the biggest challenges you faced in planting your church?
Aaron: (1) my damnable pride - when I started at 24 I had a lot more pride. I thought I had everything figured out and did not set myself in a place where I was surrounded by coaches. I think having good godly coaches would have been a great idea.
(2) My idol of the approval of man - I do not think I had enough security in Jesus and the gospel. I wanted everyone to be happy and I wanted everyones approval and we ended up having no community or commitment.
(3) Teamwork - because I rushed into planting, I created a one-man show instead of a team. A core team is really important.
A29: How can we pray for you?
Aaron: I really want to see growth and maturity. We desire to plant more and expand. Please pray because only God can do that.
