Today my family and I head to Cincinnati to hang out with my wife’s family for a few days. This will be a time of food, fun (catching a Reds baseball game) and relaxation. I plan on reading a couple of books on the drive there and back. I also plan to visit Crossroads Church this Sunday. I hear great things about them and love visiting other churches. Something tells me chili is in my future, too! I hope you have a great weekend, too.

Great advice, counsel and words of wisdom from my friend, Scott Williams. Please watch this and reflect on it. It can be revolutionary to your life and family.
Today, my worship pastor (Matt Rector) and I are in Dallas for the next few days for the ECHO Conference. I’ve spoke at and attended ECHO for several years and always look forward to what they offer. If you’ve never checked out the ECHO Conference or ECHO HUB, I encourage you to check them out. Plan on attending ECHO next year and start using the resources of ECHO HUB right now.
Two weeks ago we moved to Missouri and that took an entire week. Last week I was back in Dallas for Catalyst. Yesterday was the first “normal” day I’ve experienced in a while. Things are busy and crazy as I settle into my new ministry position. I have many thoughts to share about what God is showing me. Please know I love being a Campus Pastor and know I’m exactly where God wants me. More soon.
Today, I’m meeting with a social media client in Atlanta and then hanging around for a board meeting with Parable Creative. I encourage you to get to know Josh Webb and the folks at Parable Creative, if you haven’t already.
Wednesday through Friday, I’ll be at the Catalyst Conference. If you’re going to be there, be sure to connect with me and say “Hi”. Saturday, I’ll be attending the West Ridge School of Church Planting. This week will be busy and full of meetings and late nights, so I’ll blog again when I can.
Today I leave for my good old hometown of Dallas, TX. I’ll be hanging out at the ECHO Conference for the next few days. If you’re going to be there, please find me and say “hello”. I’m looking forward to being back in a city that I love and getting to see several friends from around the country that are coming to the conference.
Friday, I’ll be leaving Dallas and flying to Salt Lake City, Utah to hang out for six days with my friend, Charles Hill (founder of The Sticks Conference). Charles is planting a church near Salt Lake City, Utah (which happens to be the most un-churched city in the US) and I’ll get to attend his second preview service this Sunday. I can’t wait to share with you all what God shows me from my time with Charles.
As you know, I have a big heart for church planters and church plants in general. I love all church planters, regardless of where they plant, but I’m very passionate about hard to reach and unchurched areas like the Northeast, Pacific Northwest and where I’m going to be in Utah.
I’m also praying through some big decisions these days and would appreciate your prayers, as I believe God is leading me to start a church planting movement. I’ll be blogging more about the vision of this movement in the near future, but for now – please just pray for me. I feel God is up to something and stirring something inside of me and I feel my time with Charles in Utah is going to mess me up (for good)!
Can you believe it’s almost August?
The following is a blog post from my friend, Terrace Crawford. If you can give anything (this week) to help him get to Philly – that would be awesome. Read his words:
Our team has been preparing for this experience for months on end now and we’ve been raising funds to help our team get there; however, we are falling short. I am personally trying to raise $1,000 dollars this week to help us meet our goal. Would you consider helping me? Any donation would be appreciated.
