  • Tears of Joy

    Last week, I came back to the office after a 6 week ministry break with my family. God blessed me in so many ways while I was gone. I worked in the garden.

  • Pastor's Blog: Spiritual Disciplines

      What comes to your mind when you think of spiritual disciplines? Some see a plate of guilt with a big old side of duty-topped boredom. Others relish the thought of new resolutions and checklists.

  • Share the Story

      If you are a Christian, then you are by definition an ambassador. God has entrusted you with a message of reconciliation. It's called the gospel.  "Therefore, we are ambassadors for Christ, God making his appeal through us.

  • You Need a Fellowship Group

    For the last 12 years, I've been meeting several times a month with 3-4 other guys that I call my fellowship group. The group looks very different now than it did when I was a freshman in college, but our reason for meeting hasn't changed. We all need other people to help us follow Jesus.  That's why Brian, Jeremy, and I drag ourselves over to Carytown Coffee every other Wednesday from 6:00-7:30am.

  • Resources for Sharing the Gospel

    Doug and Ann Roberts have been members of Kingsway for 25 years. They have raised four children in the church, all of whom are faithful followers of Jesus Christ. Given their track record, it would be easy for them to project a "perfect parent" image.

  • Books on Sexuality

    At the men's retreat last weekend, I recommended five of my favorite books on sexuality and marriage. Since only one of these is written exclusively for men, and not all of our men were able to attend the retreat, I wanted to push out these resources out to all of you. Feel free to use the comments section below to ask questions about any of them.  Alcorn's book is a short read and gets to the point quickly.

  • God said what?

    Have you ever read something in the Bible and thought, "How could a godly person dare to say that?" I sure have. Take for example what are often referred as the imprecatory psalms. An imprecatory psalm is a psalm where the psalmist asks God to punish or destroy the wicked, often in rather violent terms.  O God, break the teeth in their mouths.

  • My Favorite Book on Trusting God

    Compared to many Christians, I feel like I have experienced very little personal suffering. But I still face a daily choice between placing my confidence in other people or circumstances and trusting in the Lord who rules over them all. Jerry Bridges' classic book, Trusting God Even When Life Hurts, has been especially helpful in teaching me why I should trust in the Lord with all my heart and lean not on my own understanding (Prov.

  • The Gospel at Work

    Have you ever thought that your everyday 9 to 5 wasn’t important in God’s plan and mission?  Where exactly do your career, job and workplace fit into the advancement of God’s kingdom? Earlier this month, I attended the Gospel at Work Conference, an entire conference centered on applying the Gospel and God’s mission to our careers, workplaces and jobs.  You see, our work is not a distraction or a sinful effort, but instead a God glorifying means of advancing his kingdom.  In Genesi...

  • God Tells Us What to Pray

    The Bible is a book overflowing with promises.  Most of them are promises God has made to his children.  For example, if you're facing a big decision, God makes a promise to you in Psalm 25:8-9.
