While thinking through some aspects of worship recently I went back to a book I've been reading off and on for a few months: All In, by: Mark Batterson.

Batterson relates: Listening to Bach's music is a rapturous experience, … [Read more...]

Thank you to so many who committed to pray. We certainly felt it. God's spirit worked in the lives of our young people throughout the week as well as in the lives of those we ministered to. He especially made His presence felt … [Read more...]
