Our Student Ministry focuses on introducing youth to a loving and saving relationship with Jesus Christ and helping them to grow in their faith. There are many opportunities for students to get involved in an environment that is welcoming, friendly, and a whole lot of fun! Be sure to ask us about our Wednesday Mid-Week Meltdown!!
On a trip to a soccer tournament months ago, Tristan and I ran across a church in a small rural town that was enormous! It was so large, it was almost an eyesore for its meager surroundings. It was neighbored by three farms, two mobile home communities, a small gas station (that opens at 5 and closes at ten- you don't see that much anymore...
My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slower to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.
I find myself quite often having to apologize for comments said during an emotional debate or conversation. I hope some of you ...
For the Kingdom of God
is not a matter of what we eat or drink,
but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy
in the Holy Spirit.
If you serve Christ with this attitude,
you will please God,
and others will approve of you, too.
So then, let us aim for harmony in the church
and try to build each other up.
This past Saturday, as I was coaching Tristan’s soccer game, I noticed a change in behavior and performance in his play. His attitude was just different. In fact, he walked differently, was extremely quiet and pulled away from the group. I think it frustrated me more that when asked what was wrong, the comment was, “Nothing, Dad.&...
We know that every one of us can remember decisions we have made that we wish we could have tried again. We all have "fallen short" at some time in our lives with our decision making process. In an effort to help with our decision making practices, here are some notes on gaining Godly wisdom and learning how God would have us make...
The great hope of the American church is… Neighbors loving neighbors.
I must admit, I get frustrated easy. I pray for patience, but, of course, God makes me we wait to receive that patience. I get frustrated approaching the square on Jonesboro Road when no one “gives a gap/takes a gap” like the sign asks. And why are ...
...“The voice of our childhood is the voice of wonder and amazement, the voice of God, which has always been speaking to us, even before we were born…but our lives became louder. The increasing crescendo of our possessions, the ear-piercing of busyness, and the soul smothering volume of our endless activity drowned out the still
Several weeks ago, I was invited by Chick-Fil-A and the Georgia Baptist Convention Student Ministry Department to the Chick-Fil-A Corporate Headquarters for a luncheon and a meeting to plan and discuss several future events in Georgia Baptist Student Ministry. All right, you know the main reason I went -- the LUNCH! No really, its ok, I am a fan of...
Recently I have been experiencing a rather large shift in my thinking. Maybe it was becoming a father that led me into this shift in thought. I see my children becoming more aware of the world around them and the differences between churched and unchurched homes. For years I have seen the Church as the place to teach, train and equip young people ...
I love August! Well, maybe I just love what August represents, the starting of a year (school terms), the last days of summer and summer heat, the coming of autumn, and the beginning of soccer and College Football. As I said, I love August. I remember the arguments with my Mom about what can of shoes I “needed” in order to be popular, ...
Our culture overall, and our church cultures specifically, have created an unrealistic expectation that parents must raise PERFECT kids. Even if we could produce the “perfect” kid by the cultural standards of academic achievement, moral excellence, economic success and productive citizenship, this certainly doesn’t mean we ...
If you're feeling stuck in a logjam in life, then here's a question that can help you get unstuck: "If you could do anything in life, what would it be?"
We get locked down by reality, immobilized by the bleak prospects of limited resources and options. A featureless horizon stretches out before us and hope goes begging. But a &...
I don’t know many folks who would tell a friend, “I’m gonna call you..I’m gonna talk..but please don’t respond.” First of all, what kind of friendship is THAT? And would YOU want to be on the other end of the phone just listening, but not allowed the opportunity to respond? I don’t think so either.
