I am a huge fan of Pixar (We all gave them a pass on Cars 2). Is it because I love cartoons? No. If that was the case I would have blogged about that aliens one that Dreamworks did that I can’t even remember the name of. I like cartoons but I love stories. Pixar […]

I came across this instagram post on Louie Giglio’s instagram account. In his intagram post Louie challenges young leaders to go deeper. His challenge is challanging for young leaders and old leaders alike. I love that Louie does a college conference and gets the best youth speakers out there but always has John Piper speak. He wants […]

C. S. Lewis in “The World’s Last Night” said: “For my own part I hate and distrust reactions not only in religion but in everything. Luther surely spoke very good sense when he compared humanity to a drunkard who, after falling off his horse on the right, falls off it next time on the left.” […]

As a pastor one of the concerns I have surrounds what songs we sing in church and why we sing those songs in our churches. Most of the things we say about the songs we sing are founded in style. The songs we like or dislike is most often an issue of personal style. The […]

Michelle Anthony – God is provider How is God provider in your life? We tend to think of God as provider by the thing he provides. We focus so much on the provision we lose sight of God as provider. When I look at the need – Where I am lacking that produces in my […]

A couple of weeks ago I was at the Gospel Coalition Conference. There were many sessions and breakouts that ministered to me personally. One of my favorite sessions was a panel discussion on justice. Panel discussions are temperamental they are fragile they can go bad quick. Much of that depends on the moderator far more […]

What if I told you that if you did just one thing as a parent it would change everything. What if I told you doing this one thing would mean, less trouble with drugs and alcohol, eat healthier, show better academic performance, and report being closer with their parents. Well tell us already! What is […]

Just finished this short book. It was by far the best book I have read on the issue. Kevin does a masterful job of staying true to what the bible says about homosexuality. This book is a must read for any pastor or parent. The issue of homosexuality and the christian response will be one […]

The one thing I wish I knew 20 years ago - http://t.co/5XweRKS12o http://t.co/2J2wIdPpOX

Albert Tate – God is enough Jonah – God was enough but not really – Jonah stopped and listened and moved but failed to trust – God was something but not enough. God said go. So he went but not to where he was called to go. Jonah saying me overboard is not about saving […]

They have what looks like a great mix of what you would expect from a “Large Group/Small Group” curriculum and fresh ideas. Here is how they describe themselves. GO! lessons, you’ll probably notice that every section of the lesson is […]

Introduction
My name is Sam Luce and I have been the children’s pastor at Redeemer Church in Utica NY for the past 16 years. I have been blogging over at samluce.com where I talk about, leadership, creativity and ministry. 

My passion lies in building and strengthening the local church in any way possible because I love creating environments where life change can take place. I truly believe that the local church is the hope of the world.
Bragging rights
I have been married to my beautiful wife for 15 years together we have 3 beautiful children ages 8, 5, and 3. We currently live in Upstate New York.
