I am with you always…

I Am With You Always When was the last time you got alone with God and really mediated on the Words of Christ in Matthew 28:20? "I am with you always." You see, in context, Jesus is both commissioning His eleven disciples[1] to bring the Good News out into the world and, yet, He is also affirming that He will be with them as they go. The application for us is much more...

Wasted Opportunity

I remember from my time at trade school when all the students would get together in the locker room to chat while we were getting dressed for shop class. I was attending automotive trade school, and to paint the picture, the class was mostly young and male and the setting was very casual and social.

When the wind and waves begin to blow

Planting in a pandemic In 2016, while still living in Australia, my wife and I felt an overwhelming burden to follow God's call into church planting. For both of us, there never really was any opposition to the call except for the where: St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. Let me just paint a picture before going any further.

Gospel Contextualization: Labrador

Last month, myself and Steve Bray had the opportunity to travel to Happy Valley-Goose Bay in Labrador. This is my second time and Steve’s first to Labrador, a vast and expansive land that often gets forgotten about, not just by the rest of Canada, but even by Newfoundlanders themselves....

Missed Opportunity

Everyone I know has spoken about an opportunity in life where a wrong decision was made causing an unwanted result that brought months or years of regrets. For believers, this often involves an opportunity to share our faith in Jesus Christ with an unbeliever. The Gospel message is for everyone to share, not just deacons and pastors. We must make the best of the opportun...
