Securely Ministering Through My Insecurities

Securely Ministering Through My Insecurities

Most people see me as very confident.  While I am fairly good at portraying this quality, I struggle with many insecurities.  One that I have struggled with for decades relates to my qualification to be a minister.   Over the years, I’ve been told numerous times that I shouldn’t be a pastor or vocational minister.  Reasons…

Are You Pouring From a Broken Carafe?

carafe pouring

It wasn’t a great way to start the work week.  I went to retrieve the coffee carafe from the dishwasher only to find the glass had broken.  The placement of the break wouldn’t have negatively impacted the ability of the carafe to hold the volume of desired liquid.  The concern, however, was the potential negative…

The Incredible Power of Music in Our Lives

The Incredible Power of Music in Our Lives

In sixth grade, I was in the band room, after jazz band practice, on what was otherwise a normal Thursday.  Kids were talking about popular songs of the day, and I felt weird that I didn’t really know them.  Wanting to fit in, I was thinking that I needed to start listening to the radio…

Behind Enemy Lines

We had so many questions from readers that we decided to expand the teaching included in this book.  Additionally, you will find a dedicated Question and Answer section in the appendix.  Not really a paper copy reader?  We've got you covered.  Our e-book format is available here.

Behind Enemy Lines takes a look at the power of the Holy Spirit and how we walk in victory rather than defeat and how that often creates questions among those we encounter. You will be reminded of your identity in Christ and be guided toward applying biblical principles of doing like Jesus did. You will uncover practical insights for participating in what God is doing in and through His children when they submit to His will.

Finding Forgiveness In Pastoral Ministry Book Cover

Finding Forgiveness

Get your complimentary PDF excerpt of the Forgiveness chapter from Behind Enemy Lines.

"Forgiveness is a deliberate decision.  One chooses to forgive, it doesn’t simply occur because you stayed within a certain acceptable range of emotion in reaction to the offense.  If you do not choose to surrender the right to be hurt, then by default, you retain the right to be hurt and can use that at any point in the future against the offender.  When you choose to retain the right to remain hurt, offended, or wounded, you choose to remain a victim by default.  It is very difficult to be both a victim and a conqueror at the same time (Romans 8:37).

Since reconciliation is not commanded, we can forgive without having to continue to be harmed...."

Worship through Flagging

Why Use Flags in Worship?

“Why flags?”   Well, because there is Scriptural basis, complimented by abundant symbolism in color and movement, and because worship is part of our spiritual warfare arsenal.   Synonyms for flags include banner, sign, signal, standard, standard-bearer, and symbol.  While flags as we know them today are not mentioned specifically in Scripture, the present day…

Are Worship Flags Biblical?

Where does the use of praise banners and worship flags come from? Yes, flag worship is biblical, although there is no specific Scripture that commands us to use them in worship today.  Think of the flag bearer or standard bearer in biblical times.   We can even look to Scripture to see God in a…
