An Unashamed Life

RobMaxeyBlog

Rob Maxey was a friend to as many people as he could meet. He was tireless in his service in God's Kingdom, relentless in his pursuit of teenagers for the sake of Jesus, and abounding in hope and joy and love that came from a heart captivated by the good news that Jesus forgives sinners and changes lives for eternity. He is and will be deeply missed. ...

5 Things You Need to Know About The Shack

shackblog2

There's no question about it: The Shack is beautiful. From the lush gardens bursting forth flowers and giving way to snowcapped peaks, to the rushing waterfalls and serene forests, your senses are on overload as you watch. Yet underneath all this beauty, an array of subtle (and not-so-subtle) lies are snuck in. There are many, and they are dangerous. The Shack is a &ldquo...

My First Two Months In Ministry

ZAKBLOG

After reflecting on my first months in ministry, I considered talking about my newly learned tips for Student Ministry: Student Engagement: Show them you’re not afraid to be the goofy one, wear it like a badge of honor (like showing off all the nerdy memorabilia that you have in your house, if you don’t have any… I’ve got more than enough to lend ...

Worship Q&A Continued

Q&Ablog

So many questions, so little time! We had over 30 questions come in on Sunday morning during our services, and of course we couldn’t get to all of them from the front. But, we can provide some brief answers to the ones that didn’t get mentioned, and that’s what we are doing here. The goal is not an exhaustive answer, but helpful, direct, biblical answers. And, we...

I think back on the faces of my brothers and sisters in Christ who were lifted up and transformed by our time in worship. I think of the happy faces of little ones running eagerly to HisKids, our children’s ministry, wh...

Worship: It's who you are

worshipblog2

You were created to worship. There isn’t a single soul on this planet who isn’t wired this way. We are all worshipers. The question is simply who or what you worship. People can deny God exists all they want, but far from denying His existence, they prove his existence as they live out a life of worship. ...

How to Meditate on God's Word

Medidate Blog

"Meditation" is a popular practice for many people, yet also a confusing one for many Christians. Is it OK to meditate like other people do, seeking to cleanse or empty the mind of all distractions, worries, burdens, etc? Is meditation spoken of in the Bible similar to that, or altogether different?...

Hijacked: The Secret of Contentment

hijackedblog

Philippians 4:13 is so much more than a motivational line for a high school football victory. If anything, Paul’s word here has just as much or more to do with God’s strength in losing than it does in winning. Nor is this verse a mantra to achieving your dreams but a reminder that even when you don’t, God’s enough. And that’s a way better prom...
