The Entitlement Pastor

The Entitlement PastorAfter nearly thirty years of pastoral ministry, I would strongly encourage younger men in the ministry to “let go.”

7 Ways to Win Your Race

7 Ways to Win Your RaceImagine what it would be like to win an Olympic Gold.

The Great I AM

Jesus Christ does not stand in a long line of spiritual “Masters.” He stands alone as the eternal God who came to earth as God in human flesh. He is not some religious “wannabe.”

Will You Make It Home
Have you ever been confronted with the fact that you might not make it home?


90% of the population believes heaven will be their eternal home. Unfortunately, many will not make it through the heavenly screening station. There is a “sin detector” that everyone must pass through. If there is just one sin detected in your person, you can not board the flight to heaven.
