Invitation to Collaboration from Pastor James MacDonald

>>>Note: The haunting question "What could we do better together than separate?" should not go unanswered in our time in our city ...

I trust you are flourishing in the grace of God and experiencing His abiding presence in your life and family!

I am writing to you to invite you to a unique gathering of pastors from around the Chicagoland area. The purpose of this gathering is to prayerfully consider supporting together a three night outreach in September 2010 with Evangelist Greg Laurie who serves as Senior Pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California.

Greg will be speaking at our gathering which is a luncheon at Maggiano’s downtown. We strongly desire your attendance and prayer support of this opportunity. We are not sure if the Lord is leading us in this direction, but trust that we will know when we have heard the collective response of pastors we are inviting. I want you to be there as we seek the Lord’s desire together. How wonderful if, in God’s providence, we could do something together to reach the people of Chicago for the Gospel.

This luncheon will be held on Friday, June 19 and will be provided free of charge. Maggiano’s is located at 516 North Clark Street in Chicago.

Please contact my office directly to RSVP or with any questions you may have at 847-398-7005, Ext. 1102 or via e-mail at Also, you are welcome to invite any fellow pastors from the area that you feel could be helpful in this process—simply mention their names when you RSVP.

For the Gospel of Jesus Christ,


P.S. If you would like to confirm your attendance quickly via texting, please text your name and “yes” to 847-650-7632.
