I believe that this post has the potential to be misunderstood and perceived as an attack though that’s not the intention. I simply want to share my convictions while recognizing that many won’t agree with me or think that what I’m saying is simply semantics. My view and stance is one of many so I’m … More Here’s why I’m not gay
Ask any person that considers themselves gay, bi, lesbian, or transgendered what their view on the church is and I can almost guarantee you that the response is a negative one. Let’s face it! We haven’t done a great job of communicating truth with grace concerning the topic of homosexuality. This needs to change! But … More Face the Truth
There I sat in Panera a couple weeks ago across from a guy that I barely knew. He had reached out to me, wanting to grab lunch. After getting our food and making some small talk, he began to open up.

In our Prayer Room, we have a wall where hundreds of names are posted of prodigals. We believe that as we pray, God is responding and moving on their hearts.

Ray Boltz, Matthew Vine, Anthony Williams, Lance Bass, Jennifer Knapp, Justin Lee, Vicky Beeching, Trey Pearson, and Dan Haseltine(from Jars of Clay) are just to name a few who have made an impact to promote something now called Gay Christianity. More and more it seems that we are hearing of christians coming out publicly. And … More Gay Christianity
This past Tuesday was National Coming Out Day of which many celebrated their individuality and chose to come out to friends and family. Maybe you experienced this first hand or maybe not? Regardless, how should the Church respond in this scenario? What’s helpful and what isn’t? Last year, I wrote on 5 Don’ts When Someone … More 3 DOs When Someone Comes Out
Ask any believer whether Jesus really did God’s will, and they will quickly respond with YES without hesitation. But wait a minute, isn’t it God’s design and will that everyone get married?
