Above is a picture of the land that our church has bought. Eighteen acres of flat beautiful land that God has provided. I think it is absolutely amazing that our little church has already almost paid off the land. If we keep going, it should be paid off by the end of the year. When I go out there, I

Our family is leaving Saturday morning for the beach. It looks like Ernesto is long gone, so we’re heading down to Pawley’s Island, South Carolina to relax for the week. You have got to hear Drew say beach. When we get back, ask him where’s he been. While I’m gone, I’m not allowing any comments to be posted. I’ll turn

Here is a cool video from this year’s Purpose Driven Worship Conference. You have to watch it to pick up the dance moves (do the burning bush, parting the red sea, and two by two) Just watch it and laugh.(ht to JG)

Church League Softball, you can’t help but love it and hate it. We had our last game last night. It was only the second game that I was able to be there and play. And we actually played great and won. Of course I ended up doing something stupid. Have you ever seen a cartoon where the guy is running

We had a neat service Sunday, one that really stretched me as a youth leader. The youth praise band did a great job with the music and some of the youth shared and encouraged each other. I then spoke about why youth ministry is important. But here’s the catch, I really just wanted to speak from the heart so I

We want to focus the entire service on the youth, so you will have an opportunity to do some sharing. Be thinking about what God is doing in your life. Be bold, be courageous, be bowflex

This is from a while back, but it is interesting to watch. Ron Luce is the founder of Acquire The Fire and the BattleCry Conferences for Christian teens. In this video, a very liberal feminist tells why Christians are bigots and fascists. What I really got out of this clip is how we are not reaching the postmodern world. I

It’s been a while since we bought our last computer at home. Actually about 6 years. So I finally took the plunge and bought a new one. Now for those of you who know me, you know that I fix everyone else’s computers all the time, but I really never spend any money on my own. It helps that I

I saw this over at ilounge. Take a look at this phone by Synaptics. They make the click wheel for the ipod and the touchpads for laptops. This is a new concept they are working on. A touchscreen phone/music player with no buttons. You just tap on the screen. This might even be close to the design of the next

I wanted to post a few pictures of the Cornerstone Youth. We had a good time. The turnout was low, but it was worth it. Todd Shaw really challenged the teens to make this a defining moment in their life and live all out for God. He had some crazy stories about jumping his dad’s station wagon on his bike
