A Far Greater Purpose

No matter where you are in life, and no matter what you are feeling, God wants you to know that he has a purpose and a plan for you. You are not forgotten, but you are loved, and with him, you are a part of something far greater than yourself.

Set on Fire

This trip has left a lasting impact on my life. There aren't enough stories to tell or pictures to see that explain the way God changed me during this trip.

Sow & Water

This trip had not been a waste, it had simply been different. I had spent the entire two weeks trying to plant new seeds and bring new people to Christ, and in doing so I had almost missed all of the watering and growing of experienced Christians that God had been doing. Last year we had planted. This year we watered.

Unexpected Father

“As for me, this is my covenant with you: You will be the father of many nations.” Genesis 17:4 This past Thursday, I had the privilege of leading a session at Kristfest helping young men navigate from boyhood to manhood.

In It All

This year, I experienced a new Czech first while at Kristfest. I got sick. Like, really, really sick. We still don’t know what disease swept through the camp, but early Tuesday morning, over 30 people found themselves incredibly sick. Diarrhea. Vomitting. Whole body aches. Four people even went to the hospital.

Blessing Behind the Fear

Fear. It’s been an attractive factor of our trip this year. Every night during our time of outreaches, we’ve put various young people through a number of competitions in fear factor-ish style. And it’s been great. Of all the events we’ve done – be it workshops, community dinners, speed dating, and even our showcase –...

Wake Within Me

Every year as we get ready to head to Czech, I tend to get a single song stuck in my head. It’s a song I end up playing over and over again. A song I whistle and hum to myself. A song that makes me pray harder – and begin to cry – about what God...
