A Long Overdue Post

There is something that I have been wanting to do for quite sometime now; Something that has been long overdue. I just want to take a few moments and publicly honor the worship band at Aletheia Tampa. You see, God has really blessed this church with an amazing group of godly men who love and […]

Sermon Recap 10.30.2011

This past Sunday I was away celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the first Aletheia Church that we started in Harrisonburg, Virginia. It was a joy to be at the original location that Jesus began this church planting movement. When we left over 2 years ago to plant the church in Tampa, we left an […]

Sermon Recap 10.23.2011

So this past week, I was at a rural baptist church in Riner, Virginia, about 700 miles from Aletheia, and let me tell you, I missed my home church. But, it is nice when I go away to have a back up that has more teaching experience than I have years. So, with that being […]

67…one number I can get excited about!

As I have stated before, numbers and statistics rear their ugly heads within the church planting game. Honestly, it gets pretty ridiculous. I remember a pastor (who will remain unnamed) of another church in Harrisonburg, Virginia (where the first Aletheia is located) when he would see us would always ask “how many you running now?” […]

A peak inside our Ruth series…

Our Ruth series has proven to be quite successful up to this point. I really feel like our people are responding well to it. In case you were wondering if we did anything differently this time around, seeing as though it is the third book we have gone through as a church, we did. Of […]

Reason # 5,689 for why I deserve zero credit for the success of my church plant

I’ve given myself a couple days to digest the interesting (but great) day that God gave to Aletheia Tampa on Sunday and I still can’t quite properly assess everything. It’s not like I am on an emotional high or anything like that. To be honest, I never was on an emotional high because I was […]

The “Fullness Movement”

So much is happening right now in ministry and life in general that I never really have time to sit down and write about it all. One thing about my church planting experience is that I never quite have enough time, and when I do, I certainly don’t have the brain power left to cram […]

a little update…

I know that many of you, especially our supporters, try to keep updated with our lives via my blog. Updates are one thing that I have not been very good at lately but here are some random thoughts on how things are going here in Tampa… 1. Our church plant has seen unusual summer growth […]

Insights on Real ManHood

This past Sunday, since it was Father’s Day, I taught on Real ManHood. It was actually pretty enjoyable because there is nothing more fun for me than to poke fun at the male population (which definitely includes myself). I think our people enjoyed it and what was so great about it all was that I […]

Feeling Encouraged

I find it so difficult to stay up on blogging these days and it honestly surprises me that people can update their blogs every single day. I guess when you make it a part of your daily or weekly routine then it can become easier. I usually am so mentally exhausted from everything I’m doing […]
