Someone told me a while back that ministry is one of the loneliest careers. At the time, I am sure I had no idea what that person was talking about. I mean, I was surrounded with peers in Bible college who were studying and doing ministry, and it was some of the best times in my life. … Continue reading Orange Brought Me Inspiration
For those friends and family of ours who don't live near us, here is a glimpse of what the weather is like around here today. We woke up to a thick blanket of snow covering everything. I'm not sure on the official word, but I'm pretty sure it is over 1 foot of snow. Check … Continue reading Snow Day – Jan. 12, 2011

After getting there, and it being the first time for any of us, we decided we would just hang out for a bit and see … Continue reading SoulFest 2010

Thus lies the root of my dream. I think it would be awesome to have a coffee shop somewhere … Continue reading I Have a Coffee Shop Dream

Every dollar raised that night will go to fund future Student Ministries' mission trips. It will start off helping them go … Continue reading Do you have talent?
I don't really know why I haven't blogged about this guy before. For those who do not live here in NH with me, you have got to watch this video! It's of a meteorologist who was on a TV station called MyTV. According to Wikipedia, "Kaprielian was the chief meteorologist for WZMY-TV." His last broadcast … Continue reading Meteorologist Al Kaprielian
It's been a while since I've updated everyone on the ministry here at RCC (both Student Ministry and my other "hats" I wear), so here you go. We're in the process of figuring out growth strategies right now at RCC. Not only people growth, but building growth, as we seek to build our first building … Continue reading Ministry Update 8-21-2009
Happy Independence Day everyone! I am reminded of all the individuals who have sacrificed so much for us to have the independence we have in the USA. Sure, we have some problems, but I am glad to live where I do. So many are not as blessed to have the freedoms we do in America. … Continue reading July 4, 2009
Another year, and another time the world begins to celebrate Easter. Even though some may only think of bunnies and dyed eggs, many remember the true reason for celebration -- Jesus Christ's resurrection! This year, I will spend another Easter away from home and family, but it is great to have my wife around. At … Continue reading Easter 2009
