Failure: Dealing with it.

Being in ministry, I have faced failure over and over again, whether it was going over budget, planning an event in which no one showed up too, or bombing a Sunday morning message… Unfortunately I plan on facing much more failure… Though when failure happens, the problem isn’t the fact that we failed, it’s how we deal with this failure… Here’re a few quick ways in which we can choose to deal with our failure whether it be in ministry,… Read more

Youth Ministry: “A 50 Year Experiment Failed”

If we used scripture as our primary basis of the church… would we come up with our current model of church? Would youth ministry even exist? is not only our overall current model of church unbiblical? But is youth ministry unbiblical? If it is unblibcal, would we as youth pastors be the ones responsible for the 85% of teenagers having walked away from the church? More teens becoming “fake Christian’s”? 20 somethings now suffering from extended adolescence? For 2/3 of… Read more

So when I was at PCC we brought in Sean McDowell who speaks, writes, and teaches on philosophy, theology, and apologetic’s… My focus while at PCC was outreach in the youth department, so I thought it’d be cool to do an event discussing the existence of God… and give the students the opportunity to not only invite their friends but to text in questions to Sean in regards to faith and of course… the existence of God… The students asked… Read more

Week 5, Done.

This week in recap, has probably been one of the most challenging weeks (still nothing in comparison to week one here in Pine Ridge) it seemed as if everything that could have gone wrong did go wrong. Starting with our evening activity as here in this community parents don’t necessarily monitor their children, who some how, some way… seem to find unlimited amounts of fireworks. Children (5 year olds, I kid you not) were shooting fireworks off into crowds, throwing… Read more

Psalm

So I’ve been reading the book of Psalm recently, doing my best to at least, read a Psalm a day, just thought I’d share some of the verses that have stood out to me throughout the past month or so…  “Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord.” – Psalm 27:14 “The angel of the Lord encamps around those who fear Him, and he delivers them.” – Psalm 34:7 “But now Lord, what do… Read more
