Yesterday at VALLEY Christian Church, we kicked-off our “What On Earth Are You Here For” Spring campaign. At the conclusion of the message I closed in a prayer that I read in each of our three services. A number of people asked me if I could make the prayer available in some format, so here […]Read more "The Call Is For You – Prayer"
A friend recently shared these simple words by Charles R. Swindoll with me and I thought they were just too good to not pass along: He who trusts in his own heart is a fool, but he who walks wisely will be delivered.

In a day and age of ‘win at all costs’, it’s incredible refreshing to see a genuine Christian on a national stage who understands what life is all about.

Not only are the words beautiful, but they are also filled with tremendous Biblical theology and doctrine. […]Read more "O Holy Night!"
My Master God, I am desired to preach today, but go weak and needy to my task; Yet I long that people may be edified with divine truth, that an honest testimony might be borne for thee; Give me assistance in preaching and prayer, with heart uplifted for grace and unction.
