Parenting in a Social Media World

A few weeks ago I had the opportunity to lead our Parents of Teens community group while DJ Sims, one of our pastoral trainees, filled in for me in Student Worship. I was able to present a seminar on Parenting in a Social Media World. Here are the slides and audio from the seminar. I... Continue Reading →

Pieces of Leadership

So, I usually have so many ideas floating around in my head that it is a difficult for me to decide what to write, but this week was easy as God has provided me with 2 different situations that led to a great blog post. If you know me then you know I am a... Continue Reading →

Final Countdown

This time of year always makes me start singing Europe's song "Final Countdown". I just had to tell Alexa to play something else because that song is still bouncing around in my head. Graduation time...the final countdown is on. I have been in Student Ministry for 17 years. Most of those years have been in... Continue Reading →

Peace in The Storm

We are in the midst of a storm...a storm of opinions and outrage. We live in a world where opinions are cheap and discourse is a lost art.

If you don't know who Billy Graham is (and yes, I use is here purposefully) I would encourage you to google him and learn more about the greatest evangelist of our time. I am extremely introspective at the... Continue Reading →

That sinking feeling…

We have all had that moment...the moment where our kid asks us a question we weren't expecting and are difficult to answer. They may be a question that is embarrassing (like Sex or sex related topics), they could be deep questions (like why is there evil in the world), or they could be topics you... Continue Reading →

Being Wrong

So I just got back from a Student Ministry conference in Tennessee. This is either our 10th or 11th year going to Conclave. It is always a great time of refreshing and learning for me. My mom usually comes down to Alabama from South Carolina and hangs out with the boys while my wife and... Continue Reading →
