Thinking Of Eisley Today

Every so often an event happens that gives me perspective.  Reminds me about true priorities. One of those happened last weekend and it’s been on my mind all week long. It didn’t happen to us, but a family we know who grew up at the church we came from here in Santa Cruz. Early on […]

Sunday Night (Err…Monday Morning?) Mind Dump

Tomorrow, Rachel and I leave town without the kids to this place: That would be Hume Lake. I picked the one with snow in the pic, cause, well, I read it could snow in the area this week. Our network, Converge PacWest saves a couple spots for church planters at the pastors retreat there every […]

We Miss You Already Mom

Today we lost my mom to a 9 month or so battle with cancer. 4 months shy of her 60th birthday. There’s no easy way to lead into that, so there it is. Walking through that (along with stupid distractions like Facebook games and Catan online) has contributed in part to my spotty – at […]

In case you didn’t catch the news on Facebook already…we have a house to move into! 6th year of marriage, 6th home, we’re getting pretty good at this.  Maybe we should start our own moving company.  Rachel could help you box everything up something fierce!

April…Where Did You Go?

Has it really been almost a month since I posted last? April has been pretty crazy. Some quick updates and recap for you. Busy month as we entered our second month of raising support. Was actually out of town for 19 days since the beginning of April. Had a great time leading worship at Rancho […]

Nash Vegas Or Bust!

This morning I hop a plane to Nashville, TN to rejoin the fraternity like gathering/unconference that is Recreate. It’s probably a little late to be telling you this, but if you are in creative ministry and/or a forward thinker, you have got to get out to this thing. The relationships I’ve made here have been […]

Assessment Center – Day 3

Today was the shortest day of the assessment, yet oddly enough still one of the most intense. It started off with worship again. I actually enjoyed the song selection way more this morning. During worship there was a moment that I started thinking about all of you out there who have been praying for us […]

Assessment Center – Day 2 (Part 2)

Alright, after lunch. Small Group Exercise Now we went back into our small groups for another exercise. Same small groups, different set of assessors watching us. For this one there were two sites (areas/cities) that were described.  We had to pick one and had about 40 minutes to create an idea of what our church […]
