Sermon: We Gather

This past Sunday morning, I had the privilege of starting off a new four-week series at Rockingham Christian Church called, "We Do," where we are looking at four different things the church does: gathering, singing, communion, and baptism. And since I am a youth pastor, after all, I had to bring in a game (one … Continue reading Sermon: We Gather

Celebrating 10 Years of Deep Freeze Retreats

When I first arrived at Rockingham Christian Church in October 2007, I stepped into a volunteer-led student ministry that was regularly meeting but in need of a leader to take it to the next level.

Sermon: Parable of the Friend at Midnight

On Sunday, January 17, 2016, I got the privilege of sharing a message at Rockingham Christian Church. The Scripture was from Luke 11:5-13, "The Parable of the Friend at Midnight," on the topic of bold prayer. It was one of the fastest messages I have ever put together, because God was telling me exactly what … Continue reading Sermon: Parable of the Friend at Midnight

A Second Chance for Those Caught in Sin

Our lead minister at RCC was on vacation on February 27, 2011, and he asked me to preach in his absence.

We Are Going to Puerto Rico in July and We Need Your Help

Yvette and I will join nine high school students and three other adults from our church for a mission trip to Arecibo, Puerto Rico, from July 17-23. This is a very exciting time for us and our church, since it is our first mission trip outside the United States.

Excited About RCC’s First Elders

On January 16, 2011, Rockingham Christian Church made a big step forward in commissioning our first elders! This completes the process from us being a new church that depended on others to a church who completely supports itself internally. That's so cool. God seems to be moving and working in our growing church. Why does … Continue reading Excited About RCC’s First Elders
