Porn is rewiring your brain and your body! It’s jacking you up BAD and you probably don’t even realize it. The 7,884th reason you should stop watching it. That and the fact that it cost the blood of an innocent man to pay for every glance taken.
WARNING!! This a totally secular video but if you’re already watching porn nothing in this will offend you.
Fridays are back on the market! Â My son, Nick, is graduating and is done with high school football so for the first time since 2009 I am free on Friday nights in the fall. Â So if you need a speaker for an event this fall that includes Friday night, I am your guy! Â Holler at me if you need a speaker for your fall retreat, Dnow, or anything else.

My son, Nick aka “BigRunkDaddy 6” is playing varsity quarterback this fall for the Levelland Lobos and I’m determined not to miss a single game for three reasons: 1. I’m his dad and he wants me there. 2. he’s really good and I want to see him play, and 3. its just the right thing to do. Â So we are simply trusting that God will provide unique opportunities of ministry this Fall that will work around Nick’s games.
As a result my Fall Schedule through November will be limited to Saturday, Sunday and Wednesday events or Sunday – Wednesday type events. Â I only have two full weekends available until November because of a Thursday night game and the bye week. Â So if you’re interested in booking me for a weekend before November, I will only be available The weekends of August 27 & October 1.
Fall weekends available prior to November:
Other than that let’s get creative and do some one nighters, short weekends, or maybe even a souped up, modernized youth revival!
So give me a call and let’s get together and make some unique plans to reach teenagers for Jesus!!
God Bless Y’all
Want to get parents more involved in your student ministry or at least help them be included in the experiences their teens have in your ministry?? Northview Baptist Church in Lewisville, Texas may have found a way to do just that. During their recent DiscipleNow they tweeted out updates about what was happening during the weekend. It was a blow by blow explanation of just about everything that happened during the weekend including the crazy games being played, the worship songs we sang, and even snippets of my messages – all in real time! They had done this from their camp last summer and the parents told me it was awesome to be able to keep up with what was happening with their kids while they were away and made it easier to get them to share their experience when they got home.
Northview just used twitter for this but I think it would be a great idea to use your student ministry fan page for updates as well since most parents are on facebook anyway and you wouldn’t have to convince them to join twitter to participate.
As a parent of teenagers myself, it drives me nuts how hard it is to get two words out of my kids about their experiences in the student ministry. Tweeting out what is happening would give us parents some specific information to ask about and hopefully better engage our kids when they get home. I’d love it if I could ask them what they thought about the message on the Prodigal Son on Tuesday night or the mud pit relays on Thursday afternoon instead of being limited to just asking, “how was camp?” I really hope our Student Pastor is reading this! hint, hint…. hahaha
