Another Year

As 2017 rolls to and end along with my first semester here at Bethel School of Supernatural Ministry, I wanted to take this opportunity to reflect on what the past four months has held for me. I've grown in so many ways this past year, and I'm sure I've developed in ways I won't even... Continue Reading →

The Last Jedi

Honestly, I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to go to opening night of Star Wars: The Last Jedi. Alas, where there's a will there's a way. I remember being so excited that night to go see my most anticipated movie of the year. There was a palpable aura of excitement that... Continue Reading →

Running on Empty

I turned the key in the ignition. The engine roared to life and then slowly puttered down to a purr as it idled. I had just finished work for the night. The time was around 11pm. My car was parked on the side of street where I usually keep it while I'm at work. It... Continue Reading →

Don’t Look Down!

I woke up full of anticipation. We had a day off from school to travel with our revival group to Weaverville, CA. What would we be doing in Weaverville? I'll tell you what we were doing: ROPES COURSE DAY! At some point throughout the fall, each revival group takes a day to go do a... Continue Reading →

Father and Son

The boy was twelve years old. As the youngest of eight boys, he was always considered the runt of the family. From his perspective he was the accident. The mistake his parents never meant to take. No one in his family would give him the time of day. He was invisible. Unknown. He wasn't much... Continue Reading →


I love camp. It's in my blood. It's simply just part of who I am. I'm a "camp guy". There is something about getting out in nature that truly makes me feel fully wrapped up in the presence of God. There's something about eating "camp food" that makes me realize how thankful I actually am... Continue Reading →
