I love working in Youth Ministry. Some of my favorite moments have come at Youth Councils either at the altar, during hang out time or night time devotions. If you are from KT, you have just gone through this and for everyone else…it is coming very quickly. This is a time where we have tremendous opportunity to.. read more →

Evidently if you read last week’s post past the headline then you recognize that I don’t truly believe there should be less Christians in the world. I am always quick to let people know that at times, though my message seem critical, it comes from a point of trying to push myself and others to.. read more →
