The app that has taken my writing to a completely new level. I'm getting so much more written everyday

Why we should look at our events thru the lens of two distinct, but collaborative strategies #stumin #youthmin

I was talking with Sam Luce yesterday and he mentioned something that I thought was incredible. He was talking about his intention of thinking through finding experiences for students where they can Know God but also things where they can Experience God.…

One surefire way to help your kids memorize scripture: Music! #kidmin

  I recently was given the opportunity to review a copy of the Seeds Family Worship album called The Word of God. I was excited because I have a two-year-old son. I’m always looking for ways to get God’s word in front of him. Sometimes the stuff that’s…

This is an incredible video from the Mormon church #antibullying #youthmin #stumin

I continue to be impressed by the way the Church or Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints are using technology to fight against culture. I hope that there are some Christian filmmakers out there that take on the challenge to fight against culture with bravery…

It's Youth Pastor Appreciation Day, go find a youth pastor and celebrate them #youthmin

Yes, find a youth pastor and go encourage them today. I want to celebrate my youth pastors, JR Lee and Josh Laxton. I learned so much from you both and I’m thankful for the encouragement and challenge that you’ve given me over my life. Who I am as a…

One piece of software that I'm hoping will allow me to write more words, faster, everyday! #blogger

I’m testing out a new piece of equipment called Dragon Dictate. I’m actually using a headset with a microphone to record my voice and in the words are transcribed into text. Dragon Dictate is the magic software that takes my voice and makes it into words!…

Got to spend some time with some HS students at Mauldin Miracle League. #awesome #youthmin

It’s been interesting how being in the role of High School Pastor is changing me. I’m more interested in developing people (or students) that are interested in changing the world. It’s such a different goal than in Preteen Ministry. It’s just as important…

One of the problems associated with vision casting

I was going through my blog drafts this week and found a few posts that never saw the light of day. Sometimes, that’s just because they are for me to think about and might be a bit too personal for me to share, but I’m learning, those are the things that…
