I’m willing to do dumb stuff to help teach a point; especially if it makes it enjoyable and memorable. This might take the cake. We just finished a teaching series called “Copycat,” in which we talked about what it looks like to imitate Christ. We talked pretty explicitly about how imitating Christ isn’t the same [...]
I mentioned in the sermon last week that I had been influenced by a friend, regarding Hosea. More specifically, a friend of mine, Sean Michel, wrote a song called, “Hosea Blues.” As I was listening to the album, Hosea Blues stuck out to me as a grief-stricken call home; not just from Hosea to Gomer, [...]
Passion 2013 was an extremely influential event (as always). The journey to end slavery began in Passion 2012 with a phenomenal turnout in the donations (over $3 million). This year was no different. They took down the curtain and opened up the entire Georgia Dome and some 60,000 students showed up. The movement to end [...]
Our student ministry uses a lot of videos throughout the year. We do serious ones, funny ones, weird ones and gross ones. These are the top ten videos uploaded in 2012 (not necessarily highest views of all time). We’ll count down to the most popular video. 10. “Fearless Teaser 2012″ 9. “Remix Blowout” 8. “Back [...]

This is the first installment of a three-part series of Batman films. They’re even better than Nolan’s (I know, right?!). OK. Maybe not. Seriously, though, these films go along with our new series, “The Masks We Wear.” We had fun making them and our students cracked up, so it’s a huge win for us! Huge [...]
Next week, we kick off a series called, “The Masks We Wear.” I’ve been pretty pumped about this because…well…it meant we got to make this. A three-part adventure is to follow!
Every year, our student ministry takes a trip together in the fall. It’s not based on scary stuff, but we always use a “horror film” type approach to promo it (it’s not a great idea, but it is REALLY fun to watch the kids scream when they see it!). Here’s this year’s promo.
