It’s Time to Engage!

It’s difficult to explain what is happening at Discover Life Church. In the last four weeks we have seen an increase of hunger for God’s tangible presence as well as a holy curiosity for His Word. We have increased in every area of the ministry. And I’m being told that for that to happen during…

Thrive! Don’t just Survive

Godly intimacy has enemies. Its greatest enemy is found in life itself. Life has needs and wants and they continually and incessantly cry out for our attention and affection. Ironically, life wants to create intimacy with whatever satiates its needs and wants. I call this the survival syndrome the Bible calls it idolatry. We weren’t…

The Fight for the Inner Room

I’m in a season where I’m being challenged in creating a greater environment of intimacy with God. More than ever, I hear a call for me to separate myself to the inner room – some call it the secret place. I pray. I pray throughout the day…I pray continually…. But what I’m talking about is…

It May Stink Sometimes…

I believe one of the greatest lies the enemy uses to disconnect christians from their God-given purpose is to convince them that they can serve God separate from belonging to a fellowship.  Here’s my take… Jesus died for the world so when the world receives Him, they’ll become His church. The church became His arms,…

Looking for Your Purpose?

Connecting people to their God-given purpose is, in my opinion, the primary responsibility of every leader in ministry.  And when I say leader, I mean pastor, teacher, evangelist, apostle, prophet and any type of leadership role that exist in church today. Within this responsibility is every form of discipleship.  And the goal of discipleship is…

The Wish

What if God did for you as He did for King Solomon?  He appeared to Solomon, in his dream, and basically granted him a wish! (1 Kings 3:5).  Seriously, what would you do?  What would you ask for? We all want to think we would do the same as Solomon.  To make you feel better,…
