Middle School Retreat ’09


The Middle School Fall Retreat occurred last weekend (Oct 2-4) and it was awesome!  We carried about 85 students and leaders to Camp Dawson for this annual Fall tradition.  Our speaker for the weekend was Ryan Warren, our camp pastor from Fuge.  Ryan did a great job delivering the Word and he really challenged both our students and our leaders.  Matt Evans, a friend of mine from seminary, led our worship.  Matt and his band were phenomenal.  I’m blessed to call both Ryan and Matt friends and partners in ministry.  Dawson has an outstanding group of middle school students!

Check out the pictures from the weekend in the following YouTube video…

My First Baptism

I had the great privilege of baptizing my first student on April 5th.  Lauren Jones accepted Christ at D-Now weekend and I was honored to baptize her.  What a great illustration of the Grace, Gospel, and Glory, of Jesus Christ!

Do you not know that all of us who have been baptized into Christ Jesus were baptized into his death?  We were buried therefore with him by baptism into death, in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glory of the Father, we too might walk in newness of life. (Romans 6:3-4)
