I’m guessing a lot of you are making your semester plans. Part of my semester planning includes planning out our club talks. You might know that in my YL area we go through an entire Gospel in a year. We cover the odd chapters in the Fall and the even […]

In two previous posts, I wrote about why I love the Jesus Storybook Bible (JSB) and some technical observations about Bible translation and the JSB. In this post, I want to pass along some practical ideas about utilizing the JSB, particularly for Capernaum campaigners (but all campaigners can benefit from […]

Two days ago the vans and buses of Capernaum Week at Lost Canyon pulled away and I wrapped up speaking to hundreds of my new friends. While the week was full of so many blessings and lessons learned (about Capernaum ministry and myself), I want to talk about the Jesus […]

For most of the summer I have had limited access to internet, on assignment, and sadly, not able to post at all. However, I have some exciting news to share with you. My wife and I have published a new resource that might be helpful for YL leaders; it is […]
