Weekend Update (8/3)


Weekend Update is simply a number of links that I think would be helpful for ministry leaders.


The Prayers of a Worship Leader / “[Here] are five things that I have prayed for myself as a worship leader over the last seventeen years of leading congregational worship.”

Five Reasons People Volunteer / ‘If you’re a leader working with volunteers, you’ve got to speak to each of these reasons. Vision alone isn’t enough. Beating people with “you should” after “you should” from the Bible isn’t enough.’

3 Simple Steps to An Encouraging Hospital Visit / Eric McKiddie has terrific advice. Memorable too, as each one starts with “P.”


Sin Wants to Be Your Friend / Tim Challies provides a great (and terrifying) analogy of sin.

Tell Her You Love Her / “Not because she’s smart or kind or fun or beautiful.”

Is Worship More Than Singing? / James MacDonald’s answer may surprise you.

I was married in December, 2001 to Molly, who I met at the U of I. In June of 2002, we moved to Phoenix and have been here ever since. In July of 2006, we welcomed a baby girl, Abby, into our family.
