By Pastor Dorrell 1 Peter 2:17 Honour all men. Love the brotherhood. Fear God. Honour the King. As Christians, we are called upon to demonstrate love and honor to all men. That honor is to be extended to those who serve in government and are placed in that position by God Himself. Part of the […]
by Andrew Calabrese Summer is just around the corner, and it presents us parents with an incredible opportunity to invest more in our children. Because they are out of school, we can spend entire days with them! Here are some helpful thoughts as you endeavor to spend more time with your children this summer: 1. […]
by Pastor Dorrell There are a myriad of titles that men can have, but perhaps the greatest of them all is that of Father. Being a dad is an incredible thing, and the position brings with it great joy and responsibility. The author of the book of Proverbs understood this responsibility when he said to one […]
By Andrew Calabrese For most of my life, it seems like I have heard or read about great people of influence practice this discipline of journaling. I always thought it would be something I would get to as I travelled further down life's road, but the more I have travelled, the more I have realized […]
Joe Monds As a child, I recall having a book read to me that still influences my life today. The book begins with a little boy disregarding a “Please, Do NOT Feed The Bears” sign at the zoo. The zoo keeper approaches the boy and asks, “what if everybody did that?”. The illustration on the […]
By Pastor Dorrell The Bible tells us we are fearfully and wonderfully made. I believe this verse speaks of the amazing complexity and intricacy with which God created us.

By Andrew Calabrese According to recent research, children ages 8-18 are spending more than 7 hours a day in front of an electronic device of some sort—whether it be a computer, iPad, smartphone, television, video game system, or anything else. According to a new study by the Kaiser Family Foundation, “The average kid sponges in […]
    Proverbs 22:6 says: Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. I believe that child training is the most obviously neglected element in raising children today. To be more precise, I believe intentional and purposeful training is the most neglected element. The [...]
For the past 21 years, it has been the joy of my life to be married to my wife, Teri. Together, the Lord has blessed us with seven children and years of wonderful memories and experiences. On a scale of 1 to 10, I would rate our marriage somewhere around an 11 or 12. However, [...]
By James Osborne of Fox News  (link to original article here) A Christian evangelical group that works to improve the lives of underprivileged children says it has been prohibited from conducting Bible study classes in public housing projects in Tulsa, Okla., potentially violating a Supreme Court ruling that upheld religious groups’ right to the use of public institutions.  For [...]
During the month of June, I will be writing a number of articles entitled “Hope for the Home,” a series intended to help strengthen relationships in our families. Today—more than ever—our homes are under fire and imperiled as never before. Our busy schedules, financial pressures and the loss of time together threaten to make our [...]
Outliers is a fascinating look into the reasons some people succeed and others do not. Malcolm Gladwell’s research debunks some popular notions about why people make it to the top of their professions and reinforces the simple principle of hard work. His main thesis is that success is primarily a function of privileged opportunity coupled [...]
And it came to pass, when the time was come, that he should be received up, he steadfastly set his face to go to Jerusalem, And sent messengers before his face: and they went, and entered into a village of the Samaritans, to make ready for him. And they did not receive him, because [...]

This past week I had the opportunity to present the Purposeful Parenting Seminar and preach to the membership of Landmark Baptist Church in Clio, Michigan.  Pastor David Pirkle, a graduate of Heartland Baptist Bible College, has been leading this church for the past 18 months and is doing a wonderful job.  The spirit of the [...]

It was a very special day that I will never [...]
It was a joy to have Bro. TJ Wilder and his family present the ministry of the Triple R Ranch in our evening services this past week.  Bro. Wilder just started the ministry for teenage boys and hopes to help young men get back on track with God.  The Ranch is a ministry of the [...]
This past Sunday, the Lord blessed our services in a great way, and the Lord used His Word to encourage many. Sunday morning, I preached from John chapter 11 on the resurrection of Lazarus.

On Wednesday nights we will begin a character study of the 12 disciples.  We will be studying how God used these ordinary men to accomplish something extraordinary.  As we learn about this small group of men who turned the world upside down, I hope we will find encouragement, inspiration, and hope for doing the same.  We too can [...]
(CNN) — Rapid-fire TV news bulletins or getting updates via social-networking tools such as Twitter could numb our sense of morality and make us indifferent to human suffering, scientists say.  Scientists say updates on networking tools such as Twitter are often too quick for the brain to fully digest. New findings show that the streams of [...]
Chloe is our new pet sheep.   I’m still not quite sure how it happened, but during a recent Sunday morning sermon I obligated myself to the delight of my girls to purchase a baby lamb.  I was preaching from John chapter 10 on the Good Shepherd and said something to the effect it might [...]
Over the years I have read many books on leadership, ministry and pastoring, but Eugene Peterson’s book entitled The Contemplative Pastor stands out as unique and original because of his view of the pastor’s position and role in the church. He believes that over the past one-hundred years the pastor has come to resemble the [...]
The presentation of the Centurion Sunday night was a huge success! We were blessed to have over 1100 people attend the drama with several people accepting Christ as savior as a result.
