Another Year, Another B-Day

Yesterday we celebrated Josiah’s birthday. I can’t believe he is already 9 years old. I remember talking with some older fathers who would always tell me that kids grow up so fast. Back then I was thinking that they do not grow up fast enough. But now, I am echoing those same words of the […]

NU Church Plant Update – 5.29.06

My family and I drove out to Chicago yesterday. After dropping off the kids with my parents, Christina and I went to Northwestern. Even though there were some people who could not make it to the meeting because of the Memorial Day holiday, we still had a good handful of people at the meeting. We […]

Promotion Ceremony

Tonight, Elliot was graduating from kindergarten. Instead of calling it a graduation ceremony, they coined it as a “promotion ceremony.” At first, I thought it was a bit weird calling a graduation ceremony as a promotion ceremony, but then I gave it some thought. One of the definitions of “promotion” in The American Heritage Dictionary […]

NU Church Plant Update – 5.21.06

It was a crazy day. Right after Sunday Celebration about 8 of us drove out to Chicago to meet up with the Northwestern church plant group. Then after our meeting we fellowshipped over some Chicago-style pizza and then some of us drove back to AA. By the time I was in bed, it was well […]

NU Women’s Soccer Hazing

Northwestern University has been on the news recently. The university suspended its women’s soccer team as the school investigates the alleged hazing incident from last year. As we are getting ready to plant a church on the Northwestern University campus, it just dawned upon me the ever-increasing need for prayer. Without prayer, we will not […]

The Da Vinci Code – To Watch or Not To Watch

This coming weekend the movie “The Da Vinci Code” will be playing in movie theaters all across the United States and around the world. Dan Brown’s book has struck a nerve with some of the evangelical Christians. In fact, there are a lot of Christians that are going to boycott this movie. If you have […]

AMI Meeting in LA

I arrived in LA late Sunday night (it was almost 3AM EST) for an AMI planning meeting. It is always good to get together with the other leaders to pray and fellowship. For the last 2 days, we have been hashing out some of the structural issues in AMI. It is sometimes draining but at […]

NU Church Plant Update – May

Right after our Sunday Celebration today, I flew out to Chicago to meet up with the launch team for the Northwestern church plant. Since I had a small window of time before my next flight out to LA, we had to meet somewhere close to ORD (O’Hare Airport). We ended up meeting at an Oasis. […]

The Marriage Curve

Yesterday, I was reminded of something in our Covenant small group (our married couples group). We are currently going over biblical principles of how to build a strong marriage. Let me digress for a second… I have been telling the single people in our church that getting married is the easy part but building a […]

Future-Thinking in Spain

I just came back from a strategic leadership conference held in the southern part of Spain. It was sponsored by Next Wave International, led by Mal Fletcher. They were specifically strategizing to reach Europe with the Gospel. It was an invitation-only conference therefore I was humbled when Pastor Robert Barriger asked me to join him. […]

2006 TC Summit

We just finished off our leadership summit. The leaders of our small group ministry and ministry teams got together to pray, plan and prepare for what God has set forth in our church. There was a different feeling in the air – with all the new and first time leaders, there was a sense of […]

Single Adults or Young Adults

As I travel to different parts of the world, I am realizing how America is greatly influencing the world. Of course, we need to note that not all of the influences are good. Even though we are influencing the world in various ways, with some level of humility, we have to acknowledge that there are […]
