Passion Much?

You have not met a more passionate gent than planter Wayne Lee.  With offices in the Mondawmin Mall, and worship services at Frederick Douglas High School, Christian Liberty Church has seen over 100 come to Christ in just a few years.  That is understandable with the energy that Lee exudes.  From the moment we stepped […]

Worship Leader Plants Church 

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.   B3 Church strives to “be the difference” as they […]

Redemption City Church

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 […]

The Bus

Sunday evening we had the honor of teaching in the home of pastor Alec (Oleg) a Russian with great passion for the people of his village. He shared with me that of the 100 homes in his town, 75 or 80 people are Jehovah’s Witnesses.  This breaks his heart.  During the summer they had a […]

$8.00 a day!

I have been processing my thoughts and boy have they had my head spinning. From the very start, we have seen God’s hand at work and have simply had to stand back and watch with wonder. We hit the airport prepared to pay as much as $100.00 each for all of the extra bags we […]

Best. Easter. Ever.

Twenty years ago Kim and I celebrated our first Easter together. I was stoked – mind ablaze with visions of what future Christmases and Easters would hold. You see, in my family Christmas and Easter were a big deal. I have great memories of Christmas tinsel, garland  and green plastic grass in baskets from a […]
