As the long awaited chill greeting us in the mornings this week reminds us how seasons change, I am reminded of how God leads us through seasons in life. Some seem happy-go-lucky and pain free. Others, we brace ourselves, fix our eyes and hearts on Him and His promises and keep walking faithfully through trying […]Read more "How are YOU making a difference post Florence?"
I met some sailors today who literally spend weeks, if not months at sea. That makes experiences on land pretty few and far between. As the young crewman led my friend and me on a tour of their ship today, he was so excited to show off the bridge, the galley and his cabin. My […]Read more "A Home Port"
I’ve spent the better part of a week processing what our team of Americans and Romanians experienced while hosting a camp for 35 Roma Orphan children. Suffice it to say, we are changed.

That is understandable with the energy that Lee exudes. From the moment we stepped […]Read more "Passion Much?"
A few weeks ago I had the honor of meeting church planter Steven Foster. This musician and worship leader has an amazing heart for the Lord and for the people of Glen-Burnie, Md., an upscale suburb of Baltimore and the struggling neighborhood of Cherry Hill.

As we pulled out of the Walmart parking lot in Nashville, NC Wednesday afternoon, I had no idea the caliber of men I was honored to ride with. Over the hours which passed like minutes I listened to Adam Muhtaseb share his heart, vision and personal story. To hear this former Muslim dream about what God […]Read more "Redemption City Church"
Planter Anthony Petini of Restoration Church in Curtis Bay, MD is THE man! Talk about living out the image of Christ in a broken and lost community. We had the pleasure of meeting with Anthony in the facility where they hold weekly worship – The Well. Curtis Bay rests just outside the reach of Maryland proper. The […]Read more "Restoration Church"
As we passed row house after row house on our way into Dundalk, MD Thursday morning, I was taken to memories my bride shared with me of her childhood in this very area.
