Mac, Fee and England!

I know, I know, I say this at the start of every blog. It's been ages since I have blogged but I need to get back to doing this. Its been a crazy first few months of 2009. So here's a few highlights.

It was at the beginning of the year that we had the opportunity of one of Christian music top artist's and pioneers come to the Dream Center. Toby Mac was in town for winter jam and I got a call from his manager asking if he, his band and a few other could come and play Basketball at DCP for the afternoon. After picking myself off the floor I said "Sure" in a real cool, non groupie voice. He was brilliant with us and loved the Dream Center and all we do. He said this place is truly "Diversity" It was a great day and amazing concert that night.

Talking of concerts we also had the opportunity of having Steve Fee with us.Steve has been with us twice before with the Passion worship tour with Chris Tomlin and others. It was great having Steve with us again. Over 800 people came out to worship. The dynamic duo, as we have been nicknamed, for concerts is myself and Austin Lehring. Austin is also our new Worship director @ Riverside. Austin is a great friend and an amazing Worship leader and song writter. We worked hard in pulling off an amazing night with Steve Fee with just 4 weeks notice from Steve. Steve contacted me through Twitter and we were able to make it happen.

Well on May 1st we as a family will be in England. Its the first time back in 13 YEARS!!! Yep, I am ready to go back for a visit. We have ton's planned from Cadbury's world, A premier leauge football (soccer) game, reunions (Invitation link), a wedding english style, Wales, Castles, London and even a trip down to Littlehampton to stay a few days with our friends Martin and Anna Smith.
We can not wait and we will be blogging and twittering during the trip.
As a family we are so excited about the trip. Only a few more weeks till we go.
Till next time, see you then....

Goodbye Google, Hello "Goodsearch"

I know I haven't blogged for a time. I apologize but here we go.

This is huge - If people go to, then on the opening page
type in under "who do you search for?" then put in dream center peoria, then
every time they do a search and use this, DCP get 1c a search. This does not
sound a lot but if we can a few thousand people doing 10-50 searches a day,
this will add up very quickly, and iits free money to us and them. Not
costing you anything to do it.

Also there is a huge list of stores like ebay, apple, gap,best buy, Amazon, barnes and noble and tons
of others. If you buy with them on line through good search, we get from 1%
to 30% of the amount spent. This could be huge
So go ahead, give it a go. What have you got to loose, its FREE!
