I Have a Confession to Make

Posted on October 17, 2011

[youtube INXNqKgov2Y 500 315] Parents, nothing in the world highlights and underscores the transcendent values of God like the church. Sports don't do it. Education doesn't do it. Movies and media don't do it. Only the local church does. And I can't emphasize enough the importance and priority the local church should play in the life of your family.

No Secrets

Posted on February 4, 2010

We sometimes need to be reminded of why we do ministry.  The calling on my life was given to me when I was 21 years of age.  There were no words that any individual could have given me to persuade me to enter the ministry, or to stay out of the ministry.  When God tugged at my heart to follow Him into full time service for His kingdom, it was only because of His call.To this day, I look back over the 28 years of ministry, and ...
