Our Team has been serving at Iglesia Nazareno in San Vicente, Baja all week, and if a picture is worth a thousand words, you can be sure that God is on the move in Mexico.  Take a look at some of these photos from our team.  (Pictures courtesy Sarah Hoverson)

Worship Defined: Part 2 (Heaven on Earth)

Worship Defined: Part 2 (Heaven on Earth)

Ok, so last time, we took a rather scholastic look at worship. This time, I’d like to focus on what all that Greek and Hebrew stuff means for us. Clearly, based on what we saw last time, praise and worship has nothing to do with music and everything to do with us. A lot of […]

Worship Defined: Part 1 (A dry, boring look at the lexicon)

Thank You

I’ve spent the last few days putting together promotional material for all the stuff we’ve got going on at Valley in the next few weeks.  It’s an insane list.  Fill the Bins, the Mwamba Children’s Choir, Family Nights Out, and a whole bunch more.  It gets very overwhelming when you look at it all together. […]

When Beauty Matters Most

  Pat and just a small portion of her awesome family. This morning, I attended the memorial service of a dear, sweet woman whom I’ve known since I was 6 years old.  After the service, I passed a horrific accident that resulted in 2 fatalities.  All day Monday, we watched as tornadoes decimated a small […]

Military Might

Have you ever been part of an organization that follows a military-style leadership?  Perhaps you’ve spent time in the Armed Forces or law enforcement.  You know what it’s like, then, to protect and to serve. During this Holy Week, I’ve been thinking a lot about what Jesus might have looked like to those same people […]
