Life On The Roadshow- Springfield, MO

February 07, 2014

We believe church is first supposed to be for God. Ephesians 3:21 says “to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever. Amen.” Church is for God. I know that doesn’t sound too complex, but it’s really important we start with that principle. I know that I […]

A Faithful Follower, First …

January 31, 2014

I am the newest member of the Harvest Bible Chapel Production Staff.  I have an unlikely passion for both pastoring people as well as live production. Those two passions have been equally exercised in the past 3.5 years as a full time student at Liberty University. I studied Pastoral Leadership while simultaneously mixing FOH 3-4 […]

Great Worship

January 15, 2014

“That was great worship”, is a sentence I hear often as a worship leader, and while I do appreciate the kind words, I think they often point to a misconception of worship common among Christians. Nowhere in the scriptures will you find the phrase “that was great worship” spoken by men. Worship is not ours […]

Using the Unlikely

January 08, 2014

God gets glory out of using unlikely, otherwise useless things to accomplish the miraculous. In 1 Corinthians 1:26-31 Paul writes the following: For consider your calling, brothers: not many of you were wise according to worldly standards, not many were powerful, not many were of noble birth. But God chose what is foolish in the […]

Let the Word of Christ…

December 06, 2013

“And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom, singing psalms and hymns and spiritual songs with thankfulness in your hearts to God.” – Colossians 3:15-16 […]

A Prayer For Our Next Record

May 09, 2013

Well, the second record is all but upon us and it has been a true joy to watch our team unite in its various capacities to make this thing happen. So much work has gone into putting together the best project possible. Writing, praying, reading, editing, reediting, not to mention a boat load of planning […]

Wrong Ideas of Worship and of God

April 18, 2013

“There are people who preach what they call “positive thinking,” and the idea is that you refuse negative thoughts, you cut them out. You must always be positive and always try to think beautifully as well as positively, and then you will feel better. And that is regarded as the worship of God – moral […]

Good Friday

March 29, 2013

On Good Friday the entire world stood unaware that it was but a few short moments from redemption. The hour was dark, the night cold, and the Son of Man took His final and most difficult steps towards the Cross. It was no surprise to Him, He had lived His entire earthly life under the […]

Seeking Happiness

March 07, 2013

Psalm 1: 1-3 Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the Lord, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted […]
