Why Wait??

I remember as a kid being so impatient! I absolutely hated ever having to wait for anything. Christmas and my birthday seemed to take so long to come around, and I remember our first trip to the beach being the longest five hour ride I had ever experienced up to that point. Our culture in […]

Huge Prayer Need

Many always ask me how they can support our ministry! One of the ways you can support us is through prayer. Here is an email that was recently sent to me concerning an event I am speaking at this weekend.   “Good morning, Trey. I am Jim’s secretary. I printed your message and gave it […]

3 Ways To Handle Discouragement

Discouragement always hits us unexpectedly and uninvited. It doesn’t discriminate based on social status or popularity. It doesn’t even need a reason to exist as often we don’t have a reason for our discouragement we just know we are down.

3 Reasons A Church Should Change!

Let’s be honest, not many of us like change! In fact most of us are creatures of habit whether it’s family traditions or cultural traditions in our community.
