7: Churches of Revelation

  Photo by HMCC-AA Publications Team       We are finishing off the summer months with our new sermon series called, “7: Churches of Revelation.” It is a good continuation from our “Bold” series on the minor prophets. The beautiful thing about the Bible is that it is “living;” therefore God’s Word is able to speak to us today. Even though, the seven letters in the Book of Revelation were written many years ago...

2013 4th of July

  I’m so thankful for all the military men and women, who serve and continue to make sacrifices for their country so that ordinary people like us can enjoy our freedom on this 4th of July. I have watched this video at least 5 times and every time it has messed me up. There is something about being reunited with your loved ones that melts my heart. One day, our Heavenly Father will welcome us...

Good Leadership

  If any of you have ever been in a leadership role, you will know that being a leader is not easy. In fact, one of the hardest parts of leadership is addressing issues that arise with the people you are leading. Lt. Gen. David Morrison, who is Australia’s Chief of Army, addressed his troops directly via video about an investigation regarding explicit e-mails about female staffers that were sent by officers and other soldiers....

Father’s Day 2013

  Being a father is probably one of the hardest callings in the world. But once you embrace it, there is nothing more fulfilling. On this Father’s Day, I am thankful for the privilege of being a father to my three children. It is my prayer that I will continue to do my best to reflect Christ in all that I do, even though at times I fail. To all the fathers at HMCC, I...

God Writes Love Stories

  In a world filled with superficial romances, it is refreshing to hear about a love story that is leaving people flabbergasted. Often times, when people try to find someone to spend the rest of their lives with, they fluctuate on the extremes. They either look for someone with “form” (looks, height, body shape, ethnicity, etc) or someone who will play the spouse “function” (meet their needs, companionship, have children, etc). We all want both...

The Music of Our Lives

  This TEDS video inspired me. It reminded me of an important life lesson that I keep on forgetting in the midst of all the hustle and bustle of life. So often in life, we try to achieve lofty goals but in the process we lose our heart. Ji-Hae Park is an incredible violinist who had aspirations of becoming a world famous violinist; but in that pursuit she fell into a severe depression. What was...

The Importance of Dads

  I am constantly reminded about the importance of the father-son relationship. Even though the son’s relationship with his mother is just as important, there is something unique about the father-son relationship. I have been trying to teach my boys about being a R.E.A.L. man. The acronym stands for: Reject passivity, Exemplify integrity, Accept responsibility, Lead courageously. A person can learn these principles from anyone, but when a son sees these traits modeled by their...

Mother’s Day 2013

  Happy Mother’s Day, especially to Christina who has exemplified what it means to be a Proverbs 31 woman. The longer I observe what mothers go through, I more I realize that it is one of the most difficult roles a person can play. Too often, we don’t fully understand what mothers go through because we are not walking in their shoes. It is easy to take mothers for granted. But if we can look...

TEAM Community Team #18

  Photo by gbtan.org       This weekend we are having our leadership team summit for the 18th time in our church’s history. It is hard to believe that HMCC in Ann Arbor is finishing off its 17th year of ministry. There are lots of memories. Lots of ups and downs. But at the end of the day, there is nothing but joy and thankfulness for all that God has accomplished. Sometimes when we...

Captivate Us. Devastate Us.

  This song has been on repeat throughout the day. There are times when a song has a way of ministering to you at just the right time. Usually, it is a combination of the song’s words and the situation you are facing at the moment.     Your face is beautiful And Your eyes are like the stars Your gentle hands have healing There inside the scars Your loving arms they draw me near...

Diversity in the Body of Christ

  There is something very beautiful about blending in various styles of music together. Not only does it give a fresh flavor to the song, but it highlights the uniqueness of the different styles. I have always been a Gospel Choir lover. I still remember my first Gospel Choir concert that I attended when I was in college. It gave me goosebumps as they were singing songs with so much passion, rhythm and soul. In...

LIBERTY Mission Update #5 – 3.2013

  God always has a way of taking something that is familiar and giving it a fresh perspective. The Cambodian church that we visited on Sunday was singing the song, “I Can Sing of Your Love Forever.” I think I sang that song hundreds of times, but for some reason, when I heard it sung in Khmei and the people who have been rescued from sex slavery started to sing, it wrecked me. It was...

LIBERTY Mission Update #4 – 3.2013

  We arrived safely in Phnom Penh on Thursday morning. Then we spend the afternoon walking around the city and observing everything that was happening around us. In the evening we did some investigative filming. It was truly eye-opening. Then on Friday we spent the whole working with a ministry. It was a phenomenal place filled with incredible people. Even though it has only been 2 days in Cambodia, God is speaking powerfully to us....
