We had an after-school fellowship at MCCA today, called NON-Detention. We had a great time playing wiffle ball, four square, soccer, and basketball. We had about 25 students there, and the purpose was to just build relationships with each other. We’ll start next Friday with a Bible study.

New Gallery Students Surveying

One of the assignments for the youth ministry class that I’m teaching at the seminary was to survey young people about their attitudes toward church. The three youth ministry majors did an awesome job (so did everyone else in the class). They even took pictures. So we put them up in a gallery to show you. We hope you enjoy them. Also included are some pictures of an outreach event that one of the guys went to downtown. They had breakdancers, music, and all kinds of things there. Check it out!


I had the opportunity to share about confusion from Matthew 26:6-13.

Chapel service

Today was the first chapel service at MCCA. The band did a great job leading worship, and overall the chapel went well. We are really looking forwward to working with this group of students and helping them develop into who God wants them to be.


This afternoon we had our friends Carlos and Sonia over with their new baby. It was great to spend some time with them here at the house. We talked about a lot of great things and had some great food. It just doesn’t get any better than this! As always…you can click the picture to see a bigger one.

Jamie and Josue

Our friend Jamie is in town visiting us from Seattle, Washington before he begins class at Mars Hill Graduate School. Here he is with Pastor Josue at the church. We are having a great time visiting. Click the picture to see a bigger one.

Powerpoint of class

The second week of Youth Ministry 110 is almost over. This week I started using Powerpoint in class. It seems to help keep us on track, and it also makes it easier for the students to understand (I think). Tomorrow, we are talking about the goal of youth ministry and how it is a Biblical goal. We need our goal to be based on the Bible because it never changes and it can cross cultural barriers. If you have powerpoint or powerpoint viewer(it’s a free download), you can see the presentation for the class. Just click the picture or here.
