We have a great group of teenagers at Cornerstone. After church, several of them came by the house to pick out some new music to be working on for the youth band. Several of the other youth took it upon themselves to go do some yardwork for one of the ladies in the church who has had some major surgeries.

We have been kicking around the idea of starting a Saturday night service geared towards young adults. Currently there are no churches in our area that have a Saturday night service or a young adult service. Our teenagers, 20 somethings, and 30 somethings really could benefit from having a worship service geared toward them. What we’re thinking about doing is

How do we respond to movies that negatively portray Christianity? I hope we have learned from the Christian response to movies like The Last Temptation of Christ and The DaVinci Code and Harry Potter.

It’s Tuesday morning and I’m just getting around to posting about the weekend. We took the youth to the PlanetWisdom Student Conference in Charlotte. It’s the 8th or 9th time I’ve been to the conference. Actually when I first started attending it was the Dawson MacAllister conference with Shepherd Mininistries. I’ve been to both Acquire the Fire and Dare2Share, but

I always love when youth question why we do things a certain way in church. To me, that is an important stage in strengthening your faith. I have always cautioned them to be very careful in their search for an answer. Where do most people go for answers? We tend to go to friends, the internet, or even tradition for

This is a great video about how college has changed. I graduated 12 years ago and in that short time there have been incredible changes. My senior year was the first year that we really had email. We had to use a modem and we were excited when we got a 14.4 connection. I remember downloading the first graphical web

I know that a title like this is a little presumptuous. I could just as easily switch the title around and it would be equally true. But I was thinking about how I preach, and I realized that my style was developed from speaking to teenagers for the last ten years. Talking to a large group of teens is a
