Last week I had the opportunity to speak at an FCA (Fellowship of Christian Athletes) event. The event is called ‘Fields of Faith.’ Across the country FCA groups fill empty football fields and bleachers with Christian athletes and students from local high schools to pray for their community. I was invited to speak because the president of the FCA club at Sycamore High was a teenage girl I met at youth camp last summer. It was an incredible evening with hundreds of people present. I challenged the crowd to do more than know about god, but to make Him their God through a personal relationship. I used the life of Jacob as an illustration, emphasizing Genesis 28:20-21: 20And Jacob vowed a vow, saying, If God will be with me, and will keep me in this way that I go, and will give me bread to eat, and raiment to put on, 21So that I come again to my father’s house in peace; then shall the LORD be my God.
After the message we all made our way onto the field to pray. It was a special night I’ll never forget. Here are some pictures of the event.
Here are two sermons I recently preached at CrossPointe.
Hope you made it through Christmas and the New year in one piece. We just wanted to share a quick update from Suffolk. We just finished the year in review for 2012. We averaged about 115 for Sunday morning services in 2012, over 70 on Sunday nights, and 55 on Wednesdays. We had 311 visitors in 2012. We know of 23 that trusted Christ in 2012. So far our Winter attendance has remained strong, and God continues to bless.
I recently preached a four part series at CrossPointe called “Four conversations that changed the world.” Here are the sermon videos (side-note, the audio in the first two was acting up, we edited it the best we could)
March 27th was our friend day at CrossPointe, it also kicked off Revival at our church with Karl Sexton (David’s brother). On Friend Day we had 127 in attendence for the morning and Revival attendence was in the high 90’s for most of the week. We had a lot of guests on Friend Day as well as during Revival. This past Wednesday we had four people attend Bible study who have been coming since the Revival. Here are some pictures and videos of the services.
Logan is a friend of mine going to plant a church in Provo, UT. He preached at our church yesterday. This is his sermon.
