Where Are You?

Written on September 28, 2021 – 5:15 pm | by dave |

Hello readers! I realize it’s been almost 10 months since I updated you all on what has been happening. I think that is a testament to why I am just now posting something. As I mentioned in my previous post, I took a new contract to hire position that is 100% remote in Nov. 2020 […]


Changing Tides

Written on October 21, 2010 – 4:50 pm | by dave |

It has been some time since I was able to update this blog with anything substantial and although I don’t like the fact that it happened, it was a necessary evil. Simply put, the world as I know it has been in a constant state of flux ever since I started this quest for ministry […]

A dream… a message?

Written on July 30, 2010 – 10:58 am | by dave |

Normally, I consider dream interpretation to be the stuff of fantastical religions or movies. However, I had a dream last night that was very strange to me and try as I may, I can’t get it out of my head as just a dream. I am hoping it is a unique way of God speaking […]

Internal Compass Spinning

Written on July 27, 2010 – 10:50 am | by dave |

It has been almost two months since I returned from my vacation and thusly started Sundays without being a pastor.

A New Kind of Prayer

During my time between seminary classes, I have had the wonderful opportunity to read H. Norman Wright’s “How to Find the Life You Have been Looking For.” This is a great book by a pastoral counselor who has served in the ministry for many years and has now found the way to de-clutter his life […]

Adventures in church visitation

Now that the vacation time is over, I am in the process of trying to get back into some sense of balance. One of the first things I wanted to do now that I have had cool down time is to visit some local churches that are closer to us than our old home church […]

My Resignation as a Youth Pastor: A Lesson in Spiritual Leadership

Written on June 10, 2010 – 2:18 pm | by dave |

As of June 4, 2010, I am no longer serving as a youth pastor for Agape Baptist Church. I actually made my public resignation on May 26, 2010 but set the end date to be June 4, 2010 because that would allow me time to easily transition the reigns to a new leader. What happens […]

The Super Update

Written on May 18, 2010 – 11:06 am | by dave |

It has been quite some time since I last had the change to update my ministry blog but this is just a testament to how busy my life and God’s ministry has been for me as of late. After laboring for a full year of intense studying while trying to strike a balance between my […]

Seminary starts anew

Written on January 18, 2010 – 10:37 pm | by dave |

Hello friends. I feel horrible about neglecting this blog as I have for the past month but when I already feel like my time is likened to a lemon that has already been squeezed dry but is then being sucked on by someone until it gets all dry and nasty. Okay… maybe that’s not the […]
