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

Perfect pastors are bad for the church… They model a lifestyle that isn’t realistic, that isn’t true. To put it plainly pastors who appear perfect, aren’t. Their living a lie. Giving off a false perspective. I’ll never forget my first internship, my first Sunday morning the head pastor took the stage, paused, and went on to say, “For the past few weeks I’ve been battling depression.” I’m not sure how much of that message I would have remembered, if it… Read more

It’s weird that 1997 was 14 years ago… though the hair and style isn’t relevant, Yaconelli’s response to the question is still very relevant and applicable, I love when he says, “Youth Ministry is about creating memories in kids, and when you do that you ruin their lives. See I think Jesus ruins our lives…” check it out: For those who don’t know who Mike Yaconelli is, he’s known as the “Grandfather of Youth Ministry” his story is pretty cool…… Read more

Hillsong – Like Incense/Sometimes By Step “Oh God you are my God…” Oddly enough this song has reminded me of 1 Peter 4:12-13 which says, “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed.” It’s taken me a while, and is still very… Read more

When I read through scripture, so many times, I see God moving through the little things, and the lowly things, and doing big things with them… But the thing is some of the people he chose to move through never got to see the fruit from their efforts… Sometimes in ministry we don’t get the opportunity to see the fruits produced from the efforts we put out… How do we know what success is then? How do we know what… Read more

I was interviewing at a church, and speaking my heart and passion to one of the elders… and he stopped me in the middle of whatever I was saying, and he said, “Son it sounds like you’re a missionary, not a pastor…”  He was right to a large extent. I am a missionary. I am a missionary called to minister, lead, and PASTOR students within Orange County. I came across a video that spoke exactly how I feel in regards… Read more

So I haven’t made any updates lately so just thought I’d write you guys and let ya’ll know what I’ve been up too… I am currently in Boston hanging with family, mainly just relaxing and doing nothing. I haven’t done “nothing” in years! This has been much needed and so good! Sleeping in until 10am going to Starbucks, reading, watching tv, and playing basketball… it’s like I’m a high schooler again (except I def never read for fun in high… Read more
