Influential Generation

Books

Just food for thought-

In Thom and Jess Rainers’ book “The Millennials: Connecting to America’s Largest Generation,” They suggest that the Millennial Generation (those born between 1980-2000) has become the most influential generation.  Over 78 millions births occurred between 1980-2000.

What does this mean?  This means that people from the ages of 11 years old to 31 years old have surpassed the Baby Boomers and have become the leading influence in America today.

What are you doing to reach this generation?  Churches can not afford to miss out on the opportunity to reach this generation.  I believe that if we are going to reach the world for Christ, we must start with reaching the Millennial Generation.

Barefoot for Jesus

Yesterday I had the awesome privilege to worship with Pastor Ken Patterson and Grace International Church in lovely downtown Baltimore. This was the first time meeting Ken and Grace International Church. Ken is very passionate about the Gospel and about his relationship with Jesus. Kens’ passion overflows into his vision for Grace International and his passion to preach a unified Gospel message for all. What makes Grace International a unique church in my opinion is that they desire to be a multi-ethnic, multi-cultural church in the Baltimore area. Kens’ message yesterday was out of Joshua 3. Ken made a profound statement that really struck me and has really got me thinking.

In Joshua 3, we read about the tribes of Israel crossing the Jordan River. The unique thing here is in Joshua 3:13. “And when the “soles” of their feet….shall rest in the waters of the Jordan, the waters of the Jordan shall be cut off from flowing.” The people were able to cross unharmed. Ken encouraged the listeners to find out what “your “Jordan” is” and what is it that God wants you to possess?

Ken shared further that the passion of Grace International (@unthinkchurch) is that everyone will feel welcome and that we can become barefoot for Jesus and worship him together, leaving our differences at the door and worshiping together as one body.

I think that this is the beginning of an awesome movement of worship, where all people of all races, all life backgrounds, all walks of life can come together, united as one and worship our one true living Savior.

Will you join me and @unthinkchurch in becoming “Barefoot for Jesus” this year?

love God. love people

iPad and the Pulpit

6a01053628087b970c0133f40ec894970b-800wi 

With the release of the iPad 2 a few months ago, the buzz among pastors recently has been about utilizing the iPad from the pulpit.

Many pastors have found that the iPad proves very useful for sermon preparation as well as delivering the sermon from the pulpit using the iPad.

I have an iPad myself and I can see where it would become very useful for the pulpit.

Various programs such as EverNote, GoodReader and Dropbox make it possible to store and access all study and sermon notes by organinzing them in folders with a central location accesable via any internet access.

What about you? How do you prepare your sermons? What "tools" do you use? Have you ever thought of utilizing an iPad within the pulpit?

UPDATE:Mission Trip

UPDATE:
Due to the Swine Flu scare in Mexico, we have canceled the trip to Mexico this year. I am saddened as I was really looking forward to going but I do not want to catch the flu there and bring it back home.

I am so excited. I have been given the opportunity to go on my very first mission trip. A dear friend of mine recently took over as Senior Pastor of a small church here in our hometown. Westwood Baptist has partnered with a church in Fort Smith to go on this mission trip.

I am not sure of all the details yet but I do know that we will be leaving on July 10th and returning on the 17th. Please pray for us as we prepare for this trip. Please pray for me as I prepare for my first mission trip.

I also have the opportunity on this mission trip to work with my sister-in-law. I think that this will be exciting to work with her side-by-side in minitry.

Thanks and look for updates as we get closer
