On Tuesday November 14th, I’ll be facilitating a leadership meeting at The Crossroads Institute. I’ll be taking a group through Andy Stanley’s excellent DVD study on Becoming a Great Staff. This is a great opportunity for pastors, business leaders, and local civic and educational leaders to come together and learn from each other. We’ll meet at 11:30am at The Higher

Bible Bloom is a new iPhone Bible app. I’m always interested in trying out new apps, and this one is no exception. A few years ago, I went through an experiment of reading through the entire Bible on my mobile devices. I used my iPod, my Android, and my iPad and read the Bible whenever I had spare time. It

Two of my favorite authors and pastors have joined together to provide materials for disciple making. David Platt and Francis Chan have launched a new website, The Multiply Movement, along with a new book, Multiply. What makes this unique is the discipleship curriculum they created is available for free on the website. I’ve been looking through the material and I think it

I love how he uses spoken word to deliver a tough and convicting message. Watch it and let me know what you think. thanks to Gabe for sharing this on his

I’m in the process of writing a research paper on the life of Billy Graham. I have read several books about his life and ministry, and I am constantly amazed at what God has done through his life. I also had the privilege of attending one of his last crusades held in Charlotte. He encountered criticism from both liberals and conservatives, yet

Have you ever heard the phrase “Don’t Judge Me.”  Unfortunately, as a pastor I have heard this statement a few times over the years. Usually, it is when I am trying to talk with someone who claims to be a follower of Christ, but is living contrary to the commands of Christ. So where does this phrase come from, and

After watching this video, I really want to read the book Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking. I’ve been thinking about doing a series of posts on introverts in ministry, because many of the pastors I know are introverts. What do you think? Should pastors be expected to be extroverts?

For those of you who read my blog, here’s a short bluegrass video filmed just a couple of blocks from our church that gives you an introduction to our small city of Galax. Bluegrass and Old-Time Music are huge, with concerts year round by the bluegrass greats. We just had HoustonFest, with Ricky Skaggs, Doyle Lawson and Quicksilver, Blue Highway,

I am seeing a transformation take place in our society, and it scares me. I’ve noticed it primarily among our nation’s youth and college students, although it is taking place among people of all ages. The problem is a postmodern shift in how we view truth and tolerance. Over the last few days, I’ve seen and heard numerous statements to
