4 Tips for Church Planting Pastors

December 27, 2016

“And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also.” 2 Timothy 2:2 Planting ‘church-planting churches’ is our most important next generation work. This past fall, I and other pastors in Harvest Bible Fellowship had the privilege and opportunity to …


Praying for Our President-Elect

November 14, 2016

I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; for kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty. 1 Timothy 2:1-2 What a great Scripture to put into practice, especially following the election …


The Danger of Reductionism in Preaching

November 09, 2016

As a recovering addict of overstatement, I want to be careful in the words I choose to warn fellow ministers about the danger of reductionism in our preaching and teaching. Dictionary.com defines reductionism as: “The practice of simplifying a complex idea, issue, condition, or the like, especially to the point of minimizing, obscuring, or distorting …


Is Donald Trump Truly Repentant and Does It Even Matter?

October 11, 2016

2 Chronicles 7:14 “If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.” I am not a politician or a pundit. I am a preacher and a …


Presidential Debates, Donald Trump’s Faith Council, and Why I Can’t Talk

September 27, 2016

Did You See the Presidential Debate? I watched the debate last night, every single word—did you? Beyond what was said, I was tuned in to the format, the non-verbal of each presidential candidate, and the seeming unfairness of the moderator. I’m sure it’s not easy to remain silent when maligned, especially when all or part of the …


The Greatest Event in Human History

July 12, 2016

Nothing more satisfying than a growing discipleship relationship with the men in our own church. After five Act Like Men “serious as a heart attack” Sunday-night discipleship events – this is how the faithful attenders from September ’15–May ’16 rewarded each other – with an Act Like Men Palooza, dubbed “the greatest event in human …


How Worship Can Amplify Sermon Impact

May 20, 2016

It surprises me that it is not always apparent to the preacher of the Word that the musical support surrounding his proclamation can significantly amplify and punctuate the message God has given for the congregation that weekend.


The Tension in the Truth

March 31, 2016

During the time allotted for sermon prep, pastors frequently feel a growing dissonance about a tension created by the biblical text from which they are working. To illustrate, if I were planning to speak on abortion, I might begin to feel a growing tension as I prepare. I would sense the need to express grace …


Days of Preparation

March 21, 2016

DAY 5: HOW BEAUTIFUL Different style of music—same message. Different vocalists—same message. Watch Eddie and Ben take an operatic form and stoke the fires of our worship all the more in this memorable presentation from last year’s Good Friday service.

JERRY FALWELL I was hosted this past Wednesday by the incredible David Nasser at Liberty University for what he called a “One Day Revival.” I was privileged to stand in front of nearly 12,000 students and proclaim, “Revival Part 1: Seeing God for Who He …
