An Unforgettable Week of Prayer!
In March of 1999, at the age of 29, I began the first week as pastor of then St. Simons Community Church (now http://www.wearecommunity.church) by calling our people to pray.

5 Lessons from “The Land Between” (Pt. 1)
I am in the land of Between – between a place and position that I have known for the last 22 years, and moving forward into a new place and position for this next season. I am spending a lot of time on reflection and personal evaluation. While I am thankful for the way God…
Everything has Changed in a Hurry!
What happened? What am I doing in NW Georgia? How did I get here? These are a few questions that have run through my mind in the last month. Amber and I are truly at total peace that God has led us on this new journey, but we have had moments of realizing just how…

Not just a word from God, but The WORD!!
