Interviewing A Three Year Old

Last week, we introduced a new series called, “How Does God Speak To Us?” We were talking about some pretty heavy stuff (God’s will). So, I did what any self-respecting, Bible-preaching pastor would do. I asked my son to help me. I interviewed him about stocks, which truck to buy, the Super Bowl, and a […]

Student-Led Summer // Idol Video

This summer, all our services are 100% student-led. That means they plan and prepare everything. Everything is executed by students (cleaning the bathrooms, vacuuming the floors, setting up chairs, teaching, leading worship, video production, lights, etc). I mean everything! And they did a great job! One of my favorite elements of this service was the […]

50 [bad] Celebrity Impersonations

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 […]

Don’t Count This Generation Out

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 […]

“12 Days” Christmas Challenge

This year, our church is doing something I’m pretty proud of. We put a challenge out in front of our people to love on people throughout the month of December. I actually got the idea from those stupid Instagram ‘photo-a-day’ things (Did I mention that I think they’re stupid?). The idea here is not to […]

BATMAN Part Three: “The Dark Knight Rises From The Dark Like The Night”

Unnecessarily long title. I know. But it fits with the absurdity of the series. This is the finale to the Ten10 Batman Trilogy. Here goes nothin’.

BATMAN Part Two: “Why So Serious?”

The second installment of our homegrown Batman series. Do yourself a favor and don’t watch. It gets weird.

BATMAN Part One: “A Bat Man Begins”

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 […]
