Pursuing a life of passion, purpose, and principle

Transforming lives. Transforming the world.

NU Church Plant Update – 9.10.06

When we heard the announcement by the flight attendant, I knew that we were in trouble. They canceled the flight to Chicago! We quickly lined up to see a Northwest agent to get rebooked onto another flight. After many calls to the pastors in Chicago and to Christina (she became my pseudo airline reservation specialist), […]

Games People Play Series

    We are going to start a new series tomorrow called, “Games People Play.” You can learn so much about life from board games like Trivial Pursuit, Monopoly and Life. It reveals our passions, our desires and even our goals. Trivial Pursuit is the first on the docket. Sometimes a lot of our pursuits […]

626 Mandate and Kids

Our family got together this evening to pray for the 626 Mandate. We signed up for Saturdays at 7:30PM. As we were getting ready to pray, one thought was running through my mind – how in the world are we going to get a 9 year old, 6 year old, and a 2.9 year old […]

His House Series

    The pastoral staff and I are pretty stoked to start this new series on Fridays called, “His House.” We are going to study the Book of First Corinthians. As we will be celebrating our 10th year anniversary in October, we are just in a stage where we need to hear from God through […]

Doctors and Ice Cream Makers

This past weekend at our married couples retreat, Josiah got stung on the hand by several hornets while we were all canoeing (his canoe ended up near a hornet’s nest). It didn’t seem that bad until we saw his hand the next day. It was inflamed and began to turn red, so we hurried into […]

Brotherly Love

This is an inspiring story. If you have time, read this article about a brother (plays football at Clemson) who decided to take care of his younger brother because their mother is a drug addict and their father is addicted to gambling. “This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his […]

NU Church Plant Update – 9.3.06

This update was posted by Pastor Jimmy while Pastor Seth attended a married couples retreat. The date of our inaugural service is getting closer and closer – 3 weeks now! Each Sunday, the anticipation of what’s to come has been building. In some ways, it feels like the calm before the storm, or when you […]

Dying With Passion

The recent passing away of Steve Irwin, affectionately known to animal lovers as “Crocodile Hunter,” brought something to my mind. Even though I am not much of an animal lover, there was something about the Crocodile Hunter that impressed me. I remember seeing him on TV one time and thinking to myself, “This guy is […]

Not a Good Way to Start

With a nudge and an exclamation of “OH my God” from Christina, I jumped out of bed. The whole Kim family woke up late! Christina and I rushed to get the kids to school – but they were all late. This is not a good way to start the first day of school for the […]

Covenant Retreat 2006

We were blessed to have one of our small group members open up their parents’ condo in Oscoda, Michigan for our married couples’ retreat. Right after our Sunday Celebration, we headed up north to get away from the ordinary things of life and strengthen our marriages and our relationships with one another. We had a […]

Life is More Than Just Soccer

What a long day! The family and I just came back from a day-long soccer tournament. Josiah made the Ann Arbor Arsenal Premier traveling team. They had teams from all over the state of Michigan. Some even drove as far as 3-4 hours to make it to this tournament. In all honesty, it was pretty […]

New Encounter

Yesterday, we had our first large group outreach gathering for the new school year. It is simply called “New Encounter” because we want people to experience a new encounter with Jesus. Last night was probably one of the better New Encounter gatherings that we had in a long time. The atmosphere was electrifying. We had […]

Webcam Connection

Last night we ushered in the start of the 626 Mandate by praying together as a church. I was encouraged to see so many people come out to pray even though it was at 12 midnight (hopefully many of the working people got some sleep). Since our church is also located in Chicago, we decided […]

The Countdown Has Begun

Two more hours before the 626 Mandate.       We will be ushering in the next 40 days with 24/7 prayer around the world with all the AMI churches and missionaries. It is exciting to know that we are not trying to accomplish the Great Commission by ourselves but there are other brothers and […]
