So I had the privilege of attending the National Youth Workers Convention (NYWC) this year. It’s always a great time. In short, Its a retreat for youth pastors, to learn, grow, connect, and refresh. Here’s a glimpse into the convention. It’s a party: It’s honestly become a tradition for me to go the convention on an annual basis, its usually held in San Diego at a resort-esque conference center, where we can go to seminars and learn, order in room… Read more

Shane & Shane- Yearn

If you’ve never heard of these guys. You’re probably not saved. No just kidding. But at the NYWC this weekend the two guys came through and lead us in worship. Amazingly gifted, would be a fair description of them. Check out their website and new CD that just came out.

Interns… ugh.

In the summer of 2006, I took on my first internship, I was easily, there worst hire. Literally, I believe to this day that I was there worst hire. Ever. But they kept me there, though it was only for a summer, they pushed through and endured my ignorance, my “know it all” attitude, my frustration towards the church as a whole.

Lessons I’ve learned from shooting (a basketball)…

So those who know me, know I used to be obsessed with basketball. Loved it. Spent hours in the gym shooting, oddly never became a good shooter, but nonetheless that didn’t stop me from trying… When playing in college, they gave all the guards a shooting coach, which was cool, though I don’t think my coach understood, it’s REALLY tough to get a shot off from the end of the bench… but that’s besides the point, this past week I’ve… Read more
