Easter is a month away. Why is that important? Well, besides the obvious historical and religious reasons, planning for that service has already begun. On my end that means stage design has been decided upon (thanks Nicky), materials are being purchased (thanks Mark), materials are being donated (thanks Wes), musician and tech team schedules are

I shared this with our students a couple of weeks ago, but the importance of the message is one that believers of all ages should keep close as we seek to walk daily with Christ. There is a growing trend in the church today, particularly with Millenials, to put the truth of the Word aside

Sometimes we can change our story, but sometimes our story changes us. In each of us, there is a sense that we are the masters of our destiny…that our choices are all our own and we will determine where our story takes us…and then… …life happens. The story of Joseph in the Old Testament is

I first met Deidra 26 years ago. I was her boss. We dated off and on for 3.5 years before getting married on December 30th, 1994. (Full Disclosure – she disagrees with one of these facts) I don’t remember what our first conflict was, but I remember some of them got fairly intense. Each time,

I love the new song that we have been doing by Leeland. “The Lion and the Lamb” has a great message and, quite frankly, very fun to play (both on drums and electric guitar). So many times I categorize God into one of the two boxes, either the lion or the lamb. When something bad

It is a continual process, but I love that we are taking the time at the beginning of this year to examine what it truly looks like to be the body of Christ in our church. Our church, and all other churches really, can use a good reminder of this and what it looks like

Like many lessons from my youth, some didn’t fully make sense until I grew into adulthood. I’ve shared before that my mother had a practice that frustrated my sister and I. If we ever said something negative about someone in her presence, she would immediately make us name 3 (not 1 or 2, THREE) positive

For the last few weeks, I’ve embarked on a new workout plan that is pretty intense. Some days, I find myself struggling to keep my energy up to get through the whole workout. My solution? Loud, upbeat music in my earbuds from Pandora. The problem? Every pre-made workout station that I have found is filled

One summer when I was in college, I left the normalcy of my job and friends for a summer-long missions trip to the Ganado Native American Reservation in Arizona. During the day we worked with a local church and with kids from the area. Our primary task…to share Jesus while we led a summer baseball

What if Jesus didn’t side with red or blue states? What if that wasn’t his point? What if he wasn’t conservative or liberal? What if he didn’t push for reform? Would we still love him like we do, if he wasn’t exactly like our glossy mental picture? Jesus’ focus was first on God and second
