Ministry Partners! I’m writing this to let you know how grateful we are that God allowed my family to have you on my team during my residency at the Austin Stone!

Hey Everybody! Sabbath is a bit of a foreign concept to most of us. It is one that many of us are either indifferent towards or have little understanding of. Most people forget that it is not only a Biblical concept, it is a command from God for our benefit. I have been learning a ton about the […]

Has anyone ever asked you, “What are your thoughts on Christians and tattoos?” I often get asked this question because I’m a worship pastor with a full sleeve and a big old tattoo on my neck… It is usually preceded by a “no offense” or a, “this might be a weird thing to bring up” and often has […]
