Leadership

I didn’t know we could do that…

“I didn’t know we could do that…” That’s what I’m hearing as I bring up church planting to people. When I’ve asked fellow students in my seminary what they plan on doing with their lives and dreams, there seems to be this linear answer of ‘well, i’m going to be a youth pastor, then an […]

God is not impressed…

I was running outside the other day and just soaking up the beauty and creation around me (See my recent post on our ‘God soaked world‘ on the bookclub vox).

My book…

Here’s a screenshot of my book. It’s more of a 50 page booklet or manual on small group leadership, but let’s call it a book for now since i’ve always wanted to write one. There’s a zoom function on Microsoft Word that lets you see all of your pages. None of it is legible of […]

Profiling…

I just finished taking The Gallup Organization‘s Strength’s Finder (You need to purchase one of their resources […]

Phoenix…

I’m in phoenix right now. The skies are unbelievably blue, and the city itself is a miraculous flatland surrounded by mountains. I find it intriguing how the dry and cracked earth resembled the sun-scorched skin many of the locals had… nothing at all against them, but it’s fascinating that there is this observable relationship between […]
