The Greatest Opportunity on Earth

The second day of North American Youth congress kicked off with a jump start session led by Lj Harry followed by split sessions with Chantry Dean(Teen), Matthew Johnson(Hyphen), Chadwick Craft (Youth Workers), and Aaron Soto (Young Ministers).

Following the split sessions, Bro. Tom Ellis preached from the well-known passage in Mark 11:15-17, where scripture records Jesus’ frustration with those treating the temple as a marketplace. The attendants of NAYC were reminded of the timeless importance of the reason for the temple and one of the most important callings the church will ever have—prayer. The temple is to be called a house of prayer and in Mark 11, the people had made it a den of thieves.

The audience Jesus was speaking to was guilty of casually walking into the temple, buying their sacrifice there … Read More »



DIY – Old Testament Edition

We all have our own life lessons in our youth, things that shape us, and in one way or another, point us in the direction we will head. Some of these are directly spoken into us in the form of a lesson or correction. Yet others are gleaned from our surroundings, sometimes in ways we may not have recognized in our younger years.

I remember hearing stories about my dad as he was growing up. He was determined, ornery, smart, and worked hard to do the things he loved. Even from boyhood he would find ways to take apart machines and rebuild then. Tinkering, building, designing and fixing—these are the things he loved to do. And through time invested and a natural inclination, he became incredibly talented and knowledgeable in those areas.

I’ll never forget the words he spoke to … Read More »



#PassionIstheMagnet

I must admit I’m a talk radio show fanatic. When I’m driving down the road in Dallas, if my radio is on, it’s on talk radio. One of my favorite talk show hosts, Rush Limbaugh, often says, “Passion is the magnet!” (hence the source of my title). When it comes to relationships, having passion is what will build strength and desire to pursue quality, lasting relationships. And the central relationship we must all be working on is our relationship with God. I wonder, just how many students today can say they are truly passionate about God?

A strong relationship with God is really where everything starts. It breeds healthy relationships within families, friendships, and so on. It took me a long time to realize a healthy, strong relationship with God consists of being passionate about God. In the small group series, … Read More »



Passion Prioritized

4th January

As human beings, we can be passionate about a lot of things: sports, music, food, or even passionate about other humans. But if you are passionate about something, you are consumed by it. You put everything you have into it—your heart, mind, body, and soul. You think about it non-stop and constantly share your passion with other people.

Passion is great because it cannot be faked and cannot be forced. When you look into the eyes of someone doing what they are passionate about, you cannot deny what you see. The dictionary defines passion as “any powerful or compelling emotion or feeling, such as love or hate” (dictionary.com). This definition made me think, “What am I passionate about? What am I consumed by?” Because being consumed by something is more than a hobby. It is something you cannot live … Read More »



Passionate about Serving the Lord

The District of Hawaii is in a season of revival! The most joyful are those who have chosen to be a part of the reaping. Recently Pastor McGriffin said, “Everyone ought to know Jesus!” I cheered along with the congregation, but I remember a time when I did not always think that way.

I came to the Lord at the age of fifteen—piercings, tattered clothes, mental and emotional scars, and a lifetime of hurt. As a youth I was starving to know why life seemed so dark. A teacher once called me a punk in high school. I embraced it and it became me. To my dad, it seemed I could never be good enough, and I embraced that I was not good enough. Growing up, I never really had any true friends, so I felt like I deserved that. … Read More »
