I think many times we underestimate the power of Twitter as a discovery tool for the church. I know I do. So often it is easy for me to forget that a tweet doesn’t stop after it is posted. So many times people will retweet a quote that my church tweets or a piece of […]

Monday Wake Up

Happy Monday! I’ve been thinking quit a bit this past weekend about what sustainable development looks like. Specifically thinking about what it could look like to educate people in technology.

Why We Created an iBook in My Church

At Park we like to use technology to solve different problems that we may have. Thankfully our context allows us to do this quite often, but one thing we’ve learned while doing this is that we don’t just use technology for the sake of doing something ‘cool’ or being relevant.

Monday Wake Up

It’s been a crazy week. So crazy I’m struggling with how to describe it with anything else other than just crazy. But it’s during these weeks that I’m reminded that I shouldn’t take for granted the things that I have been given. I have the best wife in the world, who encourages me on a […]

Why I Write

Why do I write? I write because it causes me to reflect, to think, to be inspired, and to take action. I’ve found myself the past couple days being loaded with work. It’s been one of those weeks of late nights and early mornings. You know the weeks I’m talking about. The weeks where you […]
