Cache' Connections is Returning to Sunny Florida!
Just two weeks from today, we'll be holding our first Cache' Connections Live! event in Naples at a beautiful mega church, First Baptist Church of Naples. We first met Singles Leader Jim Hill on our Florida road trip last February when preparing for our Cache' Connections Disney Conference. From the time we met Jim, he has opened his heart and mind to embrace Cache' Connections. And now, the event we started planning back in the winter months is just around the corner.
Since this is a new market, it has taken a lot of time to get the word out to local churches and media. We are blessed that two local radio stations agreed to promote this event for no cost and many area churches are on board. In fact, we received a phone call from a middle aged Christian single yesterday who told us it is quite a challenge for ladies in Florida. She said there aren't many Christian single guys, but she said this event has given her hope along with her six friends who are attending with her. She said many times, when they go to a singles group at a church, it may only be a handful of people, but now she will have an opportunity to meet singles from the entire area. Well, we'll have to wait and see if the singles of Naples and the Fort Myers area will come out and see what Cache' Connections is all about.
We are most excited to team up again with Drs. Tom and Beverly Rodgers, authors of "The Singlehood Phenomenon." The Rodgers will be the featured speakers at the event. There is also an extra bonus to this event: on Saturday morning, there will be a one hour session by Drs. Tom and Bev designed specifically for singles leaders. We look forward to meeting some new pastors from the area and of course will have our radars on for some new event prospects.
God willing, Florida is going to be a new territory that we will be developing and building in the coming year. We're hoping for a few more events over the winter months :)
Have a great weekend!
