I am just getting over the jetlag. The plane ride from DTW to Amsterdam and then to Kazakhstan was harder than expected. I am guessing I am getting a little bit older. But it has been a privilege teaching in the mornings. It is exciting to see so many future church planters out here for […]

Then and Now…
Montrose, PA. OIL 2006 Conference. I can’t believe the OIL Conference is in its 19th year. As I was reflecting on it, I realized that I was part of this OIL Conference for the last 16 years. God is truly the same yesterday, today and forever (Heb 13:8). After the first night’s worship, we had […]
