What’s on Your Calendar?

I was just recently reading an article that caught my attention. It read, “What’s on Your Calendar?” For some reason I was drawn to read the article because my mind was thinking, “there are a lot of things on my calendar.” The article was written by H. B. London Jr. who oversee the pastoral ministries […]

Running with Christina

This morning was a beautiful day to run outside. After all the snow storms and cold weather, it was nice that the weather was getting warmer. As some of you know, Christina loves running. She has mentioned that it is her way of “getting away” and being in her own sanctuary. For me, I am […]

The Original You

As I talk with other pastors and church leaders, I am finding out that one of the things that we struggle with is comparison. I guess it is pretty obvious. Sometimes it is easy to look at someone else’s ministry and wonder why God is “using them” or “blessing them” more than my ministry. The […]

Miracle Sunday Offering Update

It has been quite a journey for the last 40 days. When we started, I wasn’t quite sure how everything would turn out. All I knew is that God wanted us to respond in faith and obedience. Sometimes I wonder if some of the characters in the Bible felt what I felt going through the […]

A Reflection on the 40-Days

As my family and I are getting ready for the Miracle Sunday Offering and the Pledge service tomorrow, I couldn’t help but to feel this sense of gratitude in my heart. It is amazing that our whole church went through 40 days of reading the Bible together, as well as spending time in prayer for […]

American Idol and “Shout to the Lord”?

Did you hear? This week in American Idol at the closing of the program, the top 8 finalists all sang, “Shout to the Lord.” This is huge! Even though they took out the word, “Jesus” in the beginning (replaced it with “shepherd”), it really was shocking to hear that they sang a worship song on […]

Q Conference Update 2

Today was another day of non-stop brain food being delivered within 18 minutes per session. I am still amazed how these communicators can speak on things that are on their heart for only 18 minutes. Not only does it take discipline, but it takes the wisdom to cut out all the “fat” and just give […]

Q Conference Update 1

The first day of the conference has been incredible. We are meeting right in the heart of the city in Gotham Hall. At this conference, it has been like drinking out of a fire hydrant – just so much of the good stuff coming out all at once. Each speaker gets exactly 18 minutes to […]

MORE in 40-Days to Destiny

As we are coming to a close of our 40-Days to Destiny Campaign, I have been blessed to hear of various testimonies of how God has been working in the lives of our church members. But one question continues to come up – “After the April 13th service and when we obtain the facilities, then […]

Chillin’ with the Family in NYC

We are wrapping up our short 2 day trip to NYC. I think this has been the most walking I have done in a long time (I am pretty sure I have done my whole year’s worth in the last 2 days). As we have been trying to cut cost, we decided to save some […]

I am Dethroned

The results are in for this year’s NCAA Tourney pool that our family did together. The new reigning champion is Christina! The boys and Karissa was out of the running awhile back but Christina and I were running pretty neck and neck last week. Now she gets to choose a restaurant of her liking as […]

Spring Break in NYC

The family and I will be spending a few days in NYC. With all my frequent mileage, we were able to get free tickets. I am looking forward to spending some quality time with them, albeit it is only for a few days. It is things like this that help the kids remember that ministry […]

Frosh Class Gathering

It was great hanging out with the Freshmen class last night. I opened up the floor for questions and of course questions about how I met Christina, relationship and all the fun stuff came up 🙂 I did close out by sharing about giving 3 months to a year of their life overseas as we […]

April 2008 HMCC Highlights for Alumni

Even after this trip out S.E. Asia, I was reminded about the importance of being connected to the network of relationships that God sovereignly brought together. In every single stop that we have made (from Singapore, Hong Kong to Jakarta) it was great reconnecting with people who shared a common experience – transformation at HMCC! […]
