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…… Continue reading Pre-concert thoughts
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…… Continue reading Light Force Concert
I mentioned this project earlier today, here is the video. I think it turned out pretty funny. What do you think?
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…… Continue reading Off to Shoot a Movie
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…… Continue reading Will you pray for my ministry?

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…… Continue reading Mercy: Some practical theology here
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.
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 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…… Continue reading Last Night was Great
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…… Continue reading So, ready for coffee?
