    Hey Drew . . . found your blog via the Kaleo website. I hope all is well with your community. The Movement in San Marcos is a pretty large church by now – up over a thousand, but only a couple years old. The pastor, Jeremy McGinty is a good guy. His brother Jobey leads worship. I don’t know if they’re Sheep and Goats material, but definitely worth checking out – you may be able to find an article on them on the North County Times website.

    Another UTC area group is called Ethnos – new church plant. I don’t know if they have formally launched yet.

    Ya, I checked out The Movement up in North County a few weeks ago. I was amazed at the balance of teaching and worship. I thought it was going to be another slick church but it turns out it preaches the truth! I would love to see them in the Sheeps & Goats!
