Now that I am no longer a teaching pastor/elder at Lake Ridge Church, I miss preaching. And, it has only been three weeks.

That is not a good sign for future marital bliss-- since Mrs. Stetzer wants to find a church to attend and join as soon as possible!

But, simply put. ...

Now that I am out of the pulpit, I must confess the whole "call to preach" thing is a bit confusing to me. I am not sure that there is a "call" to preaching-- although I both value preaching and see it as essential.

Instead, I see a call to the office of pastor / elder which ...

In January, I was blessed to preach at the Wesleyan National "Gathering" in Orlando, FL.

I made some new friends there and they invited me to teach at Indiana Wesleyan University in Marion, IN. The school is quite impressive. (They tell me it is the fastest growing Christian ...

Sidetracked!

Ugh.

On the way to the NAMB State Summer Leadership Meeting, I blew a tire and missed my flight.

Tonight is at an Indy hotel then of to the Atlanta meeting in the morning... in time for my sessions.

Being invited in to train the leadership of another denomination is not a privilege I take lightly-- but I am especially blessed to find friends who share a common passion for churches that engage culture in biblically faithful ways.

I think the most challenging job in ministry may be leading stagnant churches to reengage their communities for the gospel.

If you are near Marion, IN tomorrow come join us and we will talk more about it.

This past Sunday, I visited Peace Community Church.

It was nice to attend a new church that meets in a high school (like my former church plant, Lake Ridge Church). The good thing is that I do not have to worry if the chair rows are crooked. (That is Mike's problem at Peace... ...

This whole "Friday is for Photos" thing is intriguing. Unfortunately, I have a tremendous lack of creativity in that area.

I can't even spell "Phriday" the way you should to be hip and trendy.

For better photos, see Joe Thorn, who always has an incredible knack for getting ...
