Equip: A New Ministry

ECC-0014

The great commission is a well-known command from Jesus, yet most believers do little to no evangelism. While I think we could all do better at this, I believe that the church leaders all over the states have simply not offered enough training in the area of evangelism. The average attendee is terrified of seeming like a salesman for Jesus, or simply being judged for their...

Life as a New Mom

IMG_0238.JPG

Sam and I became parents at the end of March and there have been so many great days but also some really not great days. There is so much joy in looking into your daughter’s eyes as she is figuring out the world and learning to trust you. It’s so rewarding reflecting back and seeing that (somehow) you’ve been able to take care of her basic needs and your little famil...

Parenting According to Proverbs

Family Worship Books Blurb.JPG

The Bible has much to say about how parents ought to treat their children and lead their homes, and much of it is located in the book of wisdom that we call “Proverbs.” This post is an attempt to summarize a lot of the content of Proverbs regarding parenting, and present it in a simple and memorable way with some additional resources that I hope will be helpful as well...

Tithe, support a missionary, give to those in need

IMG_4173 2

The world would be remarkably changed for the glory of God if all Christians simply did this: give 10% to church, support a missionary, budget for spontaneous giving to those in need. Most Christians give dramatically less than this, but the 3 areas the New Testament most strongly encourages us to give toward are the local church, missionaries, and the needy. These simple ...

What is the doctrine of the “Perseverance of the Saints?”

01E5E17A-37F1-414E-A925-4AE246179D2B

This doctrine explains that all who truly trust in Christ for salvation can never lose their salvation, but will certainly and assuredly persevere to the end. Scripture assures us of this by explaining that our salvation is not our “own doing; it is a gift from God” (Eph. 2:8). It’s God’s doing, not ours! Indeed, “Salvation belongs to the Lord!” (Ps. 3:8). And ...

Praying the Bible

praying the bible

What has helped me the most over the years in becoming someone more devoted to prayer is the practice of praying the Bible. By “praying the Bible,” I mean reading the Bible and turning its words into personal prayers from the heart. An example would be reading Psalm 23:1, which says, “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want,” and then praying “Father, thank you...

Why should I give to my church? And how much should I give?

overgrown

Through several years of young adult ministry and now church planting, I have noticed that many people (especially young adults) do not have a good, Biblical understanding of giving to their local church. As someone who came to Christ in college and didn’t grow up in church as a kid, this was something that took me a long time to understand as well. So I wanted to offer ...

Peace and Quiet: A Different Pace for Church Planting

garden shovel small

As a church planter in one of the most vibrant and fastest growing cities in the country, one of the most interesting verses to me is Paul’s command in 1 Thessalonians 4:11, to “aspire to live quietly.” This seems strange. Live quietly? It sounds boring and unproductive. Similarly though, in 1 Timothy 2:2, Paul calls people to pray to the end of living “a peaceful ...
