A Giant in the Faith

This past Sunday, Dr. Paul Hiebert a professor at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School passed away to be with the Lord. You can read the Trinity’s news regarding his passing here. You can also read President Greg Waybright’s letter. He was one of the professors at Trinity that helped me form some of my missiological paradigm. […]

Recapturing the Heart of Prayer

I remember the countless number of hours that were clocked in the early stages of our church here in Ann Arbor. We just knew that without God we would not be able to accomplish anything – that was 10+ years ago. There is something about “success” or being “more established” that causes us to pray […]

Baptism Like None Other

Someone just recently forwarded a YouTube video of a water baptism to me. At first I was a bit skeptical in the e-mail because the person getting baptized was blind and deaf. But after watching it, it messed me up… for some reason in the quietness of my office chair, I started to cry. First […]

Twist of Irony in Parenting

There has always been a philosophy when it comes to parenting or shall I say that there is a saying – “If you were wild as a kid, then you will be more strict when you are a parent; and if you were sheltered as a kid, you will be more loose as a parent.” […]

Narcissism on the Rise

I just received a forwarded CNN article (click here to read it). You will have to read the article in order to make sense of my entry. Sometimes there are some redeeming factors when a secular news media confirms something that we have been saying for some time now. This brings us to the issue […]

Men’s Meeting

I just came back from a breakfast meeting with some men in the leadership of our church. Right away they learned two lessons: 1) Be a man of your word – 7:53AM is 7:53AM 2) Learn to give grace to people 🙂 We had some good discussions on King David’s Mighty Men in 2 Samuel […]

Lenten Season for the Kim Family

The family and I spent some time together today. In our discussions, we talked about Lent (it started today). It has been something that we have been observing together ever since Josiah was old enough to understand what it was about. In fact, I have wrestled with the dilemma of letting kids observe Lent at […]

Foggy Day

This morning as I was driving the kids to school, it was difficult to see the road. In fact, I was only able to see about 30 yards in front of me. It was a little bit dangerous but we made it ok. Then I started to think about fog. It is amazing to think […]

626 Mandate Begins Tonight

The prayer mandate starts tonight at 11:30PM EST. I am hoping to see many of you at our kick-off service even though it is a bit late for some of the working people. Here are some quotes on prayer: “If you are not praying, then one of two things is true: You do not believe […]

The Guardian

Recently, Christina and I watched the movie, “The Guardian” together. It stars Kevin Costner and Ashton Kutcher. The movie had familiar theme with some predictable parts. But it was a great introduction to the U.S. Coast Guard. I didn’t realize all the training that they had to go though. Their motto is Semper Paratus, which […]

Raising Up Kingdom Workers

I met up with a local pastor who is working with youth and college students. As we were talking, we got into the discussion about the need for more kingdom workers. Then it reminded me once again, the importance of constantly raising up new people in our ministry. If we are serious about sending people […]

The 3M Direction

In light of yesterday’s congregational meeting, we now need to take some steps forward in order to make the 3 M’s become a reality. The pastoral staff and I are going to aggressively pursue avenues in which to help facilitate the Maturity, the Multiplication and the Mission Center to come to fruition. We will definitely […]

Profession: Passion or Paycheck

Every profession has its “blackhole.” By “blackhole” I mean – the reason of going into a profession somehow gets sucked up and loses its sense of purpose. Since I have been traveling so much in the last year or two, once in awhile I get complimentary 1st class upgrade seating on flights. It is kind […]

Pastors’ Prayer Gathering

The pastors and I spent some time praying together today. We have our staff meetings on Friday’s but we came to the conclusion that it is hard to cover everything without compromising on something. One thing that we have not done enough of is to pray for one another. Therefore, we agreed to meet every […]
