Emotionally Fat but Spiritually Famished

A few weeks ago, my wife and I were driving home from Church. We pulled into our driveway, stepped out in our nicer clothes, guitar in-hand, and proceeded to walk up the driveway. For some context, there’s a church across the street from us, so there are usually cars parked beside the road sunday morning….

A Radical Response To the Gospel

As I was studying to teach the 7th and 8th grade lesson on Acts 19, I was struck with the Ephesian people’s response to a horrifying discovery: Their pagan magicians could not contend with the power of Jesus. The sons of Sceva (the pagan magicians) were meddling in places they shouldn’t have been meddling. They…

Teaching Teaches Me

I’ve had the privilege to teach in different capacities at my local church, both in Breakpoint (teens) and Trek (7-8th grade). This experience has taught (and is teaching me) many different things! I think when us young guys are asked to speak (if we haven’t done it much) we have a burden on our heart,…

Motivation For Sharing the Truth

As a preface to this post I’d like to make note of my firm belief in God’s complete sovereignty over salvation and the means of drawing people to himself (Romans 9, Ephesians 1). In said means there are believers like you and I called to make disciples of all nations, which includes both preaching the…

A March For Life

This morning marked the annual Comfort Care Women’s Health stride for life. This remarkable ministry provides crisis pregnancy help for women and girls in need. Many of the local churches in our area raised money and marched around Waynesboro as a way to support Comfort Care. Because of the continued support of people and local churches,…

My responsibilities include delivering feed all around Virginia from tuesday-thursday and on the other days I’m either packing orders or packaging feed….

We Need Community

During the whole process of moving into a new apartment (and the moving process in general) I felt something lacking in my soul. During my one semester of college I was learning about ministry, but not actively engaging in the local church. This was part of my problem. Sure, we were going to a church, but…

When I Try Too Hard

This year of summer camp has had a particular craziness to it, from getting both overnight and daycamp photos, to editing a video, to making time with my wife, life has been crazy! And I’m the type of person to get down on myself: “could’ve done this”, “should’ve done that” feeling the pressure of my own…

Anyhow, I’m super excited to see what God’s going to do this summer in these kids and counselors lives! At…
