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?

32,000ft above!!!!

As I am writing this post, I am 32,000 feet above somewhere between Incirlik Airbase, Turkey and Ramstein Airbase, Germany. It was a little less than a year ago that I was in the same area only headed in the other direction. A lot has gone on over the last year. I have been in Afghanistan since 18 December 2010. I have traveled all over Zabul Province in Southern Afghanistan. I have made many new friends and seen a lot of interesting places. This trip was a little bittersweet as I knew that it would be the beginning to the end of my 12 year military career. My contract is up in early 2013 and I have decided that I will not re-enlist for a 3rd time. I have spent 3 years in Iraq and Afghanistan over the past 10 years of serving in the military. I am excited to see what the future holds and I am also excited to announce that for the first time ever, I have developed a Game Plan for Life. This plan includeds aspects of where I am at now in my life and a direction and guidance on where I want to go and be in as much as 3 years. I have developed a Vision Statement for my life in 2012 that will help my to stay on track with my Game Plan. I have also developed 7 Core Values that I believe are a neccessity in my life. I have also enrolled in school full-time for the first time ever and look forward to furthering my educational knowledge. I will share my Vision Statement and Core Values later in another post. I just wanted to share these things with you while I was 32,000 ft in the air.

Blessings

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
