4 Of The Most Important Words For Making Disciples

Originally posted on George Lockhart:

I had a conversation with a friend today. As we sat and talked about ministry, discipleship and kingdom building, these four words seemed to resonate well within my soul This is not the first time, however, that I have thought about these words, which is why I felt I should include them in a blog format. Sure, there are more words that are important but I feel like these words must become the fabric of who we are as followers of Christ and be treasured values for life if we aspire to make fully developed disciples as we were commanded by Christ.

Intentional.

The older I get, the more this word seems to present itself to me. I have to make every effort to make every moment count. This means I must choose my words carefully, I must choose my timing as perfectly as possible and I must live purposefully…

The End And The Start

Love Like A Hurricane

2014-07-04 11.13.17We didn’t really know what to expect. After the storm was over, Hurricane Arthur had done some damage but nothing terribly extensive. I had been staying with some friends and their trampoline suffered damage. Everything else were just broken branches.

I had gotten up early that morning to drive to the beach and survey the damage in other ares but didn’t really see too much aside from a few broken business signs. The beach was pounding with strong waves but the sky was really clear.

About the time I was leaving the beach area, I received a call from my mom asking me if I could help a mutual friend of ours who attends the Korean Church. She’s a widow and at home by herself. She had a…

I have finished up a couple of weeks of summer camp now and taken notice of a few important lessons to teach would-be leaders and up-and-comers within the ministry atmosphere. Hopefully they will be helpful to you as you make your midsummer adjustments.

Sweat the small stuff.

With any function, details are always important. Attention to details cannot be overstated: whether it’s cleanliness or check-in, check-out, making sure kids are eating their lunches or cleaning up after an event: it all matters. Check your system of flows and evaluate daily what needs to be addressed in large group settings or on an individual basis. Remember you get what you inspect, not what you expect. If you are not paying attention to the details as the leader, your staff is not either! If you only have one week, remember that it’s the only week you’ve got! So make it count

5 Things I Was Reminded About In June

Five Things

With another month closing in a few hours, here are 5 things I was vividly reminded about in June.

1) God is in control of all things.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADuring the trip to Nicaragua, I saw this in a couple of dramatic ways. We had obtained a very heavy mechanical wheelchair and wanted to bring it to Nicaragua with us. It would take a special movement of God to get it there for us relatively cheap. How does “free” sound? Once we got it to the airport, a teammate, who also works for Delta talked with some people and they offered to take the wheelchair and check it for free! Moreover, we had 50 bibles that brought our luggage to 17lbs over limit. God checked that also! These were just a couple of ways. There are also stories I could share about how some people’s funds came in and how God provided…

Up To Know Good?

I’m sure you’ve heard that phrase before: “you’re up to no good”. It’s intended as an acknowledgement for those who may be a little more than mischievous. God however, is always up to good! The question is are we up to know good? At times, God allows things to happen in our lives to teach us, to correct us, to shape us: and it’s always for our good. Romans 8:28 says:

28 We know that all things work together for the good of those who love God: those who are called according to His purpose.HCSB

This verse literally means that everything that happens in our lives has our “good” as it’s intended end result. Honestly, there are times when I would question that. We all do. Simply think about the times when, as a child, we had pain inflicted upon us in the form of having a bone reset, or stitches…

George Camp North Carolina [Video]

Originally posted on Watchmysign:

We just finished our first official George Camp of the summer! It was North Carolina’s first camp, and we are excited about the possibilities it holds for us in the future. The kids loved it, and it served as a great run-through for us to prepare for our other camps in Fayetteville, Georgia and Miami, Florida. If you live in either of those areas, please come by and see us! Georgia residents can sign up here, and our Miami friends can sign up for Kidz Camp on the same week that we lead.

Interested in how our week looked? Here is a brief video with just a few pictures that capture the energy and fun within the camp!
