With just a few days left before the Light Force concert (Sunday @ 7) I’ve got a lot of dreams for the thing. This is the first time we’ve tried this… and I’ve got a lot of thoughts floating around my head. Most importantly, I hope the event is well-attended and fun for everyone who […]
Light Force Concert
On April 20th, 2008 Light Force is hosting a great concert. Jimmy and his band will be joined by local band, Nowhere Found. I’ve been thinking and dreaming about this event for a long time. We know that in Romeo 4% or less of 6-12 graders regularly attend a youth group… but we also know […]
10 Things I Did While My Friends Were in Florida
I mentioned this project earlier today, here is the video. I think it turned out pretty funny. What do you think?
Off to Shoot a Movie
Today I’m hanging out with my favorite peeps, the cast and crew from Light Force. We’re going to conceptualize, shoot, edit, and release a movie today. It’s called “10 Things I Did While My Friends Were in Florida.” We’ll be driving all over the Metro area shooting all sorts of weird things. I can’t wait […]
Will you pray for my ministry?
Tonight we are starting something new. In a lot of way I wish I had access to this new thing years ago. At Romeo, we say “small groups are where life change happens.” And I am entering into this new study, Life Hurts… God Heals, truly praying to see that come to life. I long […]

I could see the students wrestling with this. Here are students completely covered in both. They have parents who bathe them in both on a […]
I am 31 years old. I have done youth ministry, pretty much, since I graduated from High School. And I still get jazzed about an all-nighter. I am pumped to hear that many of our students are not only coming but bringing friends. In 30 minutes doors open. I’m ready. I hope they are.
Gaining some momentum in Light Force
Last night’s small group was great. That makes 3 “good time had by all” Light Force events in a row. With a sure winner on Friday night, we’re off to a good 2008.
Last Night was Great
Last night in Light Force we had our 3rd worship night. And they just keep getting better. The first two I was really self-conscious about who was and wasn’t there. (Easy to do when only a couple people show up!) This one I was just focused on making it a great night. We had a […]
So, ready for coffee?
In the coming weeks I’ve cleared my schedule a lot so that I can concentrate on two things more than I have in the recent past. Spend time with parents of Light Force students. Spend time with Light Force students, with a purpose. So here’s the deal. If you are a student or a parent […]
