My wife can preach!

   This past Sunday, my wife helped me preach.  We talked about how men and women are called to love each other in marriage and focused on the key to everything: forgiveness.  She brought a very valuable woman’s perspective.  If you want to check it out, CLICK HERE! She did a great job and will…

We did what they said couldn’t be done!

In the past week, we’ve had a number of contractors or people come into our new church space and ask, “When will you guys move in?”  Each time we told them, “This Sunday”, they immediately laughed or looked at us with disbelief.   But we did it. And by we, I mean our awesome church…

Connection Point Church is (soft) launching this Sunday

I’m going back to Peru (and you can too!)

Pics from the Zoo

 We have a Dallas Zoo season pass this year.  The best thing about these pictures is that it makes it appear that all of our kids are getting along with each other!
