Colossians

Posted by Dave Clayton on

Several of the guys in our church will be reading through the Book of Colossians this week. Would you like to read along with us? I'm sure several of the posts over the next few days will be centered around this book. I hope you will make it a point to read through Colossians with us. It...

By now, many of you have probably seen this video. I stumbled across it a couple of weeks ago, and in the last week or so, I have found myself recommending this video to a dozen or so people so I thought I would post it here. For those of you familiar with Penn of Penn and Teller (he is the big...

Guest Blog: Jason Parker

Posted by Dave Clayton on

Hey guys, sorry that I have failed to get back into full swing regarding the blogosphere. I promise to get the train back on the tracks as I am finally recovering from the chaos otherwise known as the holiday season. As much as I hate to admit it -- having a routine is not a bad thing. Anyways...

40 years of Mission

Posted by Dave Clayton on

One of my favorite things about the holidays is getting to worship at the church where I grew up. It is so much fun to see old friends -- reconnect with people that have shaped my life greatly. There is just something so special about Christmas. Although it was great seeing old friends, the...

Prayer for You

Posted by Dave Clayton on

I have been reading through the Book of Ephesians with a couple of guys this week. I don't know if you have ever noticed this before, but Ephesians is chock full of unbelievable prayers. One prayer in the first chapter really jumped out at me this afternoon. I want to take a minute to pray this...

Mission Challenge # 4

Posted by Dave Clayton on

The challenge for today is really simple. In fact, it is so simple that I won't spend any time trying to set the stage or unpack the theological implications. Just try it.  First, get out your cell phone and scroll through the names in your contact list. Second, who is a person in...

Choosing Leaders

Posted by Dave Clayton on

I have been thinking today a lot about our conversation yesterday (for those of you that were at my house you know what I am referring to). I have been praying that God will really open my heart and my eyes so that I can recognize the people he has been preparing for leadership. I love the story...

Psalm 34:4

Posted by Dave Clayton on

I'm not sure if any one verse has ever captured my heart for such an extended period of time as Psalm 34:4. I stumbled across this verse a little over a year ago, and I find myself quoting it nearly every day. I'm not sure why this verse has taken root in my heart the way that it has, but I know...
