2021: The Year of GOOD News?

The problems the world faces today and the missional doors opened before us today are the result of the careful coordination of the God who wants to empower you to serve now.

Jesus' Church

I can’t give up on the church because, as messy as she is, she’s His idea. Jesus died for her, was raised for her, and commissioned her to be light in the darkness and love to the lost until he comes back to fix it all.

I Want to Be the Pastor on the Bridge

The death of George Floyd migh very well mark a tipping point into a new civil rights movement that shouts that “black lives matter.” The movement of the 60’s and 70’s showed us all how wrong overt white supremacy is. This new movement will expose the evil of systemic racism and injustice.
