It’s a Saturday evening and I’m driving home from what was truly one of the most incredible days. Was I hard at work in ministry, which I truly love? No. In fact, quite the opposite. I took a day off with our team to see the wildlife of Kenya. One such animal, the King of … Continue reading Lessons From a Wild Lion
“Is there any hope for this next generation?” I was sitting next to a beautiful Polish Australian grandmother asked me as we flew from Melbourne to Canberra. She had asked me what I do for a loving and I said, “I’m a preacher, an evangelist.” For the next hour she told me her life story, … Continue reading Grandparent- “Thank you!” What you do matters for Jesus.
Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you see the same thing over and over again? Over the past month I have been seeing dragon flies everywhere!

After Pastoring, Church Planting and seeing God move in mighty ways across America, we were suddenly “nobodies”. I was completely stripped away of all my … Continue reading God MUST Be Enough
