twenty-eight was great

Today is my birthday. I am 29 years old and pumped to start a new year of life in Christ. Psalm 29 talks all about the power and majesty of the voice of the Lord. This year I want to both listen to and be a mouthpiece for God’s glorious voice, like never before. Over coffee this morning I was mulling over God’s faithfulness during the past twelve months and I was overwhelmed. The last year of my life was wonderful. That’s not to say there weren’t trials. There were. But through it all, good and bad, God proved Himself strong.

Here are a few memories that came to mind and brought a smile to my face…

The book of Nehemiah. The lessons that emerged from studying this book significantly changed me as a person and freshlife as a church forever. This series was a defining moment. We went in as cupbearers. We came out as snakebirds. Sanballat and Tobiah be warned–Our God will fight for us!

Daisy Grace. This little girl came into our home and has lit up our lives.

The launch of the Whitefish campus. There was no shortage of drama, opposition and craziness but we held onto the promise that Jesus will build His church and NO ONE CAN STOP HIM and that’s just what He did.

Skull Church 2.0. Enough said. All that’s left is to take this event to the ends of the earth…

Meeting Kanye West. Too bad I didn’t have any skull church invites on me at the time.

The No txt is worth dying for initiative. The cool thing about this project is we will have to wait until heaven to find out what it’s significance was. If it works we will never know about it. There simply won’t be accidents that might otherwise have happened. love it.

All will rise. Church at the Majestic on Easter Sunday was an unforgettable experience.

It’s was a killer year. But the best is yet to come.


Psalm 29:4,10 The voice of the LORD is powerful; The voice of the LORD is full of majesty. The LORD sat enthroned at the Flood, And the LORD sits as King forever.
