GYC 2011: Day 2

GYC 2011: Day 2

This year, making it to GYC is only a matter of traveling 30 minutes down IH-10, but that means I don’t have the luxury of rolling out of bed just in time to march across the sky walk from hotel to morning worship. It’s been a long, intense day.  God is definitely moving, and it’s […]

GYC 2011: Day 1

GYC 2011: Day 1

Straight to the point. That’s how it was. For months we’ve been anticipating the landing of Generation of Youth for Christ here in Houston, TX. And then, unashamedly it showed up. GYC is here and while it’s been a couple years since I’ve attended the conference, it still is what it is – a movement […]

The Chat Room

The Chat Room

Imagine this…a group of 20 & 30-somethings sitting around discussing the heavy topic of abortion. Questions coming like popcorn from all corners of the room. Lights dim, zesty dinner flavors, & a movie to provoke your thoughts on the blunt reality of abortion.  Music + Spoken Word + Food + Relevant Dialogue – we call […]

Unspeakables: Out with the old, in with the…old?

Unspeakables: Out with the old, in with the…old?

I was recently told that the General Conference has dubbed 2010 the Year of Lay Evangelism. This follows directly behind the 2009 Year of Pastoral evangelism, which was preceded by the 2008 Year of something Evangelism whose specific focus I cannot remember. All I know for sure is that it involved some series of mass […]

Snaps @ SDA SNL

Snaps @ SDA SNL

Smooth eloquence flows from educated lips behind a familiar lone mic. Words bring images to mind, and images bring words to life. The simple strum of the guitar strikes a chord of deep concentration. And the show begins. I heard about the Saturday night church through some friends back home, and penciled it in for […]

Scared to Be Adventist

Scared to Be Adventist

Why do we have a Seventh-day Adventist denomination? What is it that we offer that other denominations of Christianity do not have? Church membership has not been growing like it used to. The youth seem to be more excited about evangelical Christianity as opposed to anything “Adventist”. Many youth have fallen into the, “What does […]

The Michael in Me

The Michael in Me

Last night at the BET music awards Jaime Foxx said, “We want to celebrate this black man.  He belongs to us and we shared him with everybody else.”  But did MJ really belong? The death of Michael Jackson actually made me turn on my television after probably weeks of having no interaction with the tube […]

The Hot Seat – unveiled

The Hot Seat – unveiled

So if you missed it last Friday night, you should really feel “too bad so sad.”  We rolled out the big blue box filled with IKEA gear and transformed probably one of the ugliest spots in htown into a fabulous, sleek, hip, & happening cafe.  Singles slowly trekked across town, over the bridge, and through […]
