Spring Break 2017 Missions Experience

This spring has brought a lot of life change for me and my family. We welcomed our little boy into the world in late March. He is a blessing to our family and is tangible evidence of lives changed – both his and ours! As I’ve gotten back in the office and begun to review [...]

Pursue Survey and Reflections

I’ve had a couple of weeks now to spend some time reflecting on PURSUE Conference 2017 – a weekend designed to help college students and young adults on their journey, finding their place in God’s ultimate purpose and design for their lives. There were so many great components of our time together, but one keeps [...]

New Life

It’s easy for me, at least, to get lost in the busyness of the holiday season. I’m so thankful for those moments when I choose to stop and reflect on the holiday. From Christmas to the celebration of a new year, there’s much to praise God for. As much as I hate to admit it, [...]

God Is In Control

Judah was in trouble. They were under attack from foreign nations. King Jehoshaphat was afraid and sought God. In desperation, he called Judah to fast and gather in Jerusalem. Broken before the entire nation, Jehoshaphat cried out to God. In 2 Chronicles 20:12, he said they are powerless and they don't know what to do, but [...]

God Cares

Pray for students to realize how much God loves them, amidst all their worries and concerns, and for them to cast their cares upon Him. College students – whether incoming freshman, sophomores and juniors in mid-stream, or seniors anticipating their final year – come to campus with worries and cares about a superabundance of things. These worries [...]
