December 15, 2014

In the last several weeks, I’ve had an overwhelming sense of expectation; a feeling that we’re about to enter into a dimension of God’s outpouring. I believe the year 2015 has been prearranged and set for the body of Christ to connect to God-encounters. And in some churches, the difficulty of making this connection will…

Dark times are inevitable. Our life is a journey and to walk that journey requires time. And within that time span there are seasons – all types of seasons. Some of those seasons are dark seasons.

Why Power Gatherings?

September 24, 2014

I’ve come to a sobering conclusion that the ONLY church growth strategy in Miami is signs, wonders and miracles. We’ve tried it all here! Unfortunately, Miami still sits as the most unchurched and unreached city in our country. Prayer, fasting and preaching with miracles following, is and will be the only strategy for creating waves…

Thrive! Don’t just Survive

July 30, 2014

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…

PAIN! Your Friend.

Pain. “Pain is your friend,” I say this often to my leadership team when I teach on the processes of life and spiritual growth. Pain seems to be associated with the positive as well as the negative things of life. We experience the pain of loss and the pain of gain. There is growing pain…

Maturity Defined

July 8, 2014

How is Christian maturity defined? In conversations with people throughout the years, I’ve come to realize that people have a tendency to equate knowledge with maturity and age with maturity.  It’s a common mistake. We’re encouraged and driven to study and learn about God and His Word. And although knowledge brings about a certain level…

What is Holiness?

July 3, 2014

Many people assume holiness is synonymous with conduct. This common mistake confuses the root with the fruit. And although holiness produces proper conduct (fruit), at its purest form (root), holiness is the act of separating and dedicating oneself for a certain purpose. Holiness begins with a decision. Holiness begins with a choice that’s based out of…

Life is a Theme Park

June 24, 2014

In a couple of days, I think Victoria and I are going to experience the early signs of “Empty Nest Syndrome.” Currently all my children are home but at the end of the week, Calysta goes back to Los Angeles to finish her senior year at college, Zion goes to Boston for a five-week summer intensive and…
