It is hard to believe that summer is almost over. We have about one month left. Kids will start going back to school soon, youth group will start up again, and the leaves will begin falling off the trees. Over the next several weeks, my focus will be on two major things at RCC -- … Continue reading As Summer 2010 Winds Down…
Salem does not really have a place where people (specifically teens) can hang out. Sure, there is the mall or various ice cream places, but there is no place to relax and chill with your friends. 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
This Saturday evening, our high school students will be putting on the first-ever "RCC's Got Talent" event. In addition to a talent show, we will have a silent auction with TONS of great items! 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?
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

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
For the last seven years, RCC has hosted a community Easter egg hunt on the day before Easter. Last year was the first year we hosted it at the Rockingham Park Racetrack. There were almost 1,000 people in attendance. This year, we are hoping and praying for even more. This is an amazing "first-touch" experience … Continue reading Easter Egg Hunt 2009
I've had a great last few weeks of ministry here at RCC! Today was especially exciting. After a great day of skiing yesterday with the middle school students, I got up a bit slower this morning. However, it was totally worth it. Today, at RCC, I was privileged to baptize 3 teenage boys who have … Continue reading What a Day!
I'm so proud of my students! I'm also really excited about our new programs here at RCC. We just split the middle school and high school up into two separate groups today called "The Path" and "The Bridge" respectively. Two of our high school students have been collaborating on a video series we've called The … Continue reading The Bridge Weekend Update 2-15-2009
