Transforming lives. Transforming the world.

Cynicism and the Dying Heart

As I am doing ministry, I am coming across more cynical people than ever before. But if people only knew the cynicism that is overtaking many pastors as well, they would be shocked. Some years ago, I had to guard my heart because I started to find myself getting cynical about one of the greatest […]

UIC Strategic Meeting 05.26.08

Last night, I meet up with the staff of HMCC of Chicago and the leaders of the UIC ministry. We spent some time evaluating this past year’s small group ministry on the campus and then we read up on some statistical information about the campus. As we were sharing and reading up on the information, […]

Diane’s B-Day

Yesterday was my older sister’s b-day. We weren’t planning for it, but it just happened that my younger brother was coming in to Chicago from L.A. because of a wedding and I was here preaching for HMCC of Chicago so we decide to have dinner all together as a family. It was a special treat […]

Memorial Day Reflections

Today as I was heading back to my parents’ place after a meeting, I ended up driving pass a cemetery. For some reason, after seeing all the American flags and being reminded that it was Memorial Day, I had this great urge to stop by and take some time to reflect. I was thinking that […]

Chicago Trip 05.26.08

It was smooth sailing on my flight to Chicago. I was a bit concerning about the flight since it was the last flight that would get me to Chicago on time for the Sunday Celebration. I realized that Sunday mornings are the best time to fly – there are less people and fewer interruptions in […]

Chicago Trip 05.25.08

I am heading out to Chicago early this morning. I will be concluding the “Taking Up the Challenge” sermon series today. Not only have we been focusing in on evangelism and discipleship, but today I am going to share about the greater vision for Chicago and reaching out to various campuses within the city. I […]

Josiah’s Soccer 2008 Tournament

It was a beautiful day for a soccer tournament today – 60’s and sunny! As Josiah’s season is coming to an end, their team entered into the Canton Cup. This tournament has been going on for close to 30 years. It was an incredible sight to see – they had acres and acres of just […]

The Gospel for Real Life

        For the Spring and Summer terms (May through August), we are going to start a whole new series on our Friday night ACCESS gatherings for our students. This series is based on Jerry Bridges’ book, The Gospel for Real Life. Jerry Bridges has written so many books on holiness, godliness, and […]

Signing the URC Contract

Today, a handful of us from HMCC of Ann Arbor’s Board of Directors and the University Reformed Church’s Board got together to sign the contract for the purchase of their properties. It was a monumental moment in our church’s history and theirs as well. Not only did we step out in faith to raise the […]

Thoughts on “The Multi-Site Church Revolution”

        It was great reading up on the whole multi-site revolution that is happening in the churches across the United States, as well as around the world. God is definitely up to something. This book highlighted various churches are and have become the catalyst for the movement. They also give some practical […]

The Call to Leadership Series

        Last night I did a video sermon for this new series on leadership. I think the topic of leadership has been misunderstood by so many people. The majority of people have always looked at leadership in terms of a position. This is why people who are not great leaders think they […]

Till Death Did They Part

It is hard to imagine being married for 50 years, let alone 75 years, but J.C. and Josie Cox from Texas have hit that milestone of 75 years. It is longer than what most people will live in their lifetime. I wonder how their lives changed over the years. When I think about the last […]

Thoughts on “Third Culture Kids”

        I was able to finally finish this book that covered the whole topic of children who are known as Third Culture Kids (TCK). The authors David Pollock and Ruth E. Van Reken define TCKs as, “A TCK is a person who has spent a significant part of his or her developmental […]

Goodbye to the Austin Team

Today was the last Sunday at HMCC of Ann Arbor for the Austin team. Most of the UT church plant members took off for Texas right after Sunday Celebration. After they shared about one thing that they were looking forward to in Austin, we prayed for them. It was a bit sad saying bye to […]
