Get Off the Stage

I’ve had this gnawing in my soul lately. As a pastor, and ultimately our church’s lead communicator, I want to make sure that I have something meaningful to say. It’s easy to write a message just to write a message. It’s harder to write something meaningful. It’s easy to tell funny stories to get a […]

Another Thought From Perry Noble’s Coaching Network

I can’t emphasize enough how meaningful Perry Noble’s Coaching Network was to me. Here’s another thought for you, as you consider joining him for the upcoming semester. I certainly learned a TON from Perry and his team. One thing I didn’t expect was what we discussed on the first session. Perry was brutally honest about […]

Perry Noble’s Coaching Network

Hey Pastors, I want to let you in on a secret that really stretched me as a leader. We’ve seen tremendous growth spiritually and numerically as a direct result of what God taught me through Perry Noble’s Coaching Network. I was so honored to be selected to join this group. I didn’t really have expectations […]

We Were Once Lost…

Alex Vega gives a thumbs up after being rescued from the mine. I sat spellbound last night, watching as the first of the Chilean miners were evacuated from the collapsed mine. I was overtaken when I saw the son of the first miner to be rescued dissolve to tears as his dad was raised. Can […]

Which Are You?

“There are two kinds of people: those who say to God, “Thy will be done,” and those to whom God says, “All right, then, have it your way”– CS Lewis So, which are you? Will you give your live to bring the Kingdom of Heaven to earth, or will you live only to please yourself?

Believing God for HUGE Things!

Hey Access Church, Sunday was an AMAZING day! I’m so thankful for where God has brought us. I’m asking you to take time this week to do several things: 1. Be praying for our church. I’m believing that the next few weeks are going to be epic in the history of our church. Let’s have […]

Learning to Rest

The busier life gets, the more we need to find seasons of rest. I am so thankful to have had this weekend away with the love of my life, Elisabeth. I feel so energize and recharged now.

Jehovah Jireh

God has always taken care of me. Sometimes I wish I understood His schedule and timing, yet He always provides. Jehovah Jireh is a simple Hebrew translation that means God is our provider. Hebrew words are nimble and can be translated different ways (Hebrew has roughly 80,000 words, while English has upwards of 1,000,000). Another […]

He’s ACTUALLY got the whole world in His hands

There are some days when you know that God is in control. There are other days when you have to remind yourself. Maybe you’ve experienced days/weeks/months/years when you’ve wondered if He even cared. I’ve been there. I’m in one of the good seasons right now. I feel like I’ve recently come out of one of […]

I Love the People I Serve With!

I love the people I get to work with. As Access has grown, God has blessed us with the opportunity to hire several staff members. I just thought I’d take a moment to publicly appreciate them. Access people, you should take a moment to express thanks to them to. These guys work really hard to […]
