Don't Go It Alone

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Are you trying to go it alone? We all tend toward isolation a little bit. Maybe you are an introvert. You go to the pool, but you always have a book in front of your nose! Maybe you walk around the pool deck talking to everyone you meet, but you would never let them know what is really going on...

From a Small Seed

I had the honor of spending this morning at the 33rd Annual Leadership Prayer Breakfast at the Antlers Hotel. The emcee was none other than our own Matt Meister! The speaker this morning was Brandon Slay, Gold Medalist wrestler in the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney. When he was 22, Brandon was in...

An Unlikely Believer

Posted by Tim McConnell on

Who is the person in your life you consider least likely to turn toward Jesus? We all have one ... or two, or three. It’s that person you simply can’t imagine having God in their life, or coming to church with you, or praying out loud, or showing up to a Life Group with their Bible...
