Student Ministry in the Life of the Church

In my years of church-going, I have observed that many families arrive at church together only to part ways as soon as they enter the doors and not see each other again until it is time to leave. Everyone goes off to their own Sunday School class, then sometimes even to their own worship service. Is this the way it should be? Is this the way God intended church to function...

The Church Choir

worship

Many churches struggle with whether or not the choir should be a part of their future. While I don't believe that it should be a part of every church, there are some compelling reasons for a church to utilize a worship-leading choir in their times of worship. Below are comments written by Mark Condon in an article he wrote some time back addressing this issue. "Do We...

Blue and Gold Book Icon Education Logo

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path. (Psalm 119:105) Many Christians set the goal to read the Bible through in a year. This is a worthy goal, but also a hard one. How do you decide when and how much to read? Often the reading can seem daunting and cumbersome. Often, before the first month is even over people give up on this goal. We want to help you. If...

Avoiding the Awkward Moments

Cover

I don't know about you, but I don't particularly enjoy awkward moments, regardless of the type. Most awkward moments are uncontrollable, and you never know when they're coming and how long they'll last. This got me thinking about 1 Peter 1:13-16 - "13 Therefore, with minds that are alert and fully sober, set your hope on the grace to be brought to you when Jesus Christ is...

Philosophy of Worship

worship phil

There have been very few times over the years that any one has asked about my philosophy of Worship Ministry related to congregational singing. I thought that this might be an excellent time to share that with you. 1. To offer the very best, that I and the people I have been called to serve, can prepare for our Lord as a sacrifice of praise. I will not offer...

For several years, one of my favorite passages to use for preaching has been Psalm 71. I have preached sermons from this passage in English and in Spanish, and every time I am reminded that God is always with me. Here are some of the verses that bring up that remembrance: Verse 3: "Be my rock of refuge, to which I can always go." (NIV) Verse 8: "from birth I have relie...
