We are Here for Others

Otherness

A few years ago I was taking a group on a mission trip to Mexico. Before we left I gave everyone a bracelet to wear while we were on the trip.

The bracelet had 4 simple words on it.

I asked our team to let these 4 words guide everything about our trip.
I asked…



Where you carry the name you carry matters

Location matters.

Where we carry the name we carry matters.

Last week my son Will, who is 9 years old, asked me this question. “Dad, do you think I can make a difference?”

I said, What do you mean?

He said, “There are kids in my class at school who aren’t Christians. Do you…



When You Go, God Grows

When do you feel like you grow most in your relationship with Jesus Christ?

All of us encounter Yahweh at different times, in different ways, in different places & spaces. Having an encounter with the King of kings & Lord of lords is holy.  It’s sacred.  It’s a landmark event we…



The Church, Customer Service & the Consumer Mentality

How good is your church at customer service?

This week we have worshiped on top of a hill in an amphitheater, we have worshiped in a gym, we have worshiped sitting on the floor in a kitchen & not once has anyone complained about the worship experience, about the songs being led or about…



I found my life when I laid it down

Last night I was blessed to baptize my good friend Gregory Massey!

I’m here this week at the City of Children in Ensenada, Mexico.  This place is special & for those who have traveled across the border to walk inside the gates it is holy ground.  Home to more than 80 children…



Drink Coffee – Send Missionaries!

What would you think if I told you that you could drink great coffee & send our students out to the world as missionaries?

I didn’t start drinking coffee every morning until our third kid was born.  I love our kids, but once Alisha & I were outnumbered I had to call in for…



King Jesus Love

Is Jesus someone you hope to have a personal relationship with so that you can go deeper in your spiritual life & have the hope of Heaven one day, or is He the King of the Universe?

I think this question points to the real lordship of Jesus in our lives.  Are we willing…



My Trip to the City of Children with Emma

This past weekend I had the chance to travel to Ensenada, Mexico to be with our friends at the City of Children for the annual Leaders Meeting.  Whenever I can, I always love to take one of our kids with me when I travel.  And taking our kids to the City of Children…



Learning from Serving the Least of These…

Every year I’m blessed to lead a group of students to serve others in Mexico.  One of the things we do here is take food to members of the church who are in need.  One of the ladies we visited this week is hermana (sister) Migdalia.  Brother Reyes,…



Love Changes Everything

I’m about to take yet another group to the City of Children in Ensenada, Mexico.  It’s one of my favorite places on earth.  Over the last 16 years I’ve been leading groups here.  It’s an orphanage that’s home to 100+ children in Baja. And it holds a special place in my heart.  For…
