Tulsa and Uganda — Ways’ Update

| July 26, 2017

Jill and I were in Uganda in May, and it was pretty incredible. We connected with old friends and ministry partners and participated in some leadership equipping events. Our eyes were opened once again to the tremendous need for leadership development in Africa, and we had several requests for help from pastors and overseers.  Whole […]

From Scoundrel to Volunteer

| July 24, 2017

One of my favorite things these days is being part of the Merchant.  Here’s a recent update I wrote… Oh my word! Jesus has been so good to us at the Merchant! We see our dreams beginning to take shape week by week as we spend time in this space with which the Lord has […]

Leadership Development

| November 13, 2015

Last Friday we had the great joy of graduating and ordaining Seth Kittinger, one of the young men who was part of the Transit discipleship program I led seven years ago. Since that time, Seth has continued to develop as a follower of Jesus and as a leader. One of my great joys in life […]

International Missions

| November 13, 2015

This week I am in the midst of researching travel to Asia. I’ve never been before, and am excited and nervous. I plan to be in Delhi, India, from January 9-16. I’ve been invited to spend the week teaching a group of leaders about Mentoring and Coaching. This is a subject that is dear to […]

Ministry to the Poor and Homeless

| November 13, 2015

Last Thursday we had a special evening with our friends on the street. One of our Boiler Room couples provided an amazing meal — pork tenderloin, mixed vegetables, mac and cheese, and apple pie. It was crazy good. After our Bible study, instead of lining up for food as usual, everyone was seated at a […]

The Prize

| September 22, 2015

“Pray for me? No, God doesn’t care about us.” I looked past the middle-aged Ugandan man, to the small hut in which he lived with his family. And then at the other huts all grouped together, just a few feet apart. Hundreds of them. Thousands, actually. An “Internally Displaced Persons” camp in northern Uganda. For […]

Good Friday

| April 3, 2015

It’s Good Friday. Words fall pitifully short in trying to express what this day means to us. We commemorate today because Jesus died on the cross for people like you — whatever you perceive ‘like you’ to mean. The failures. The successful. Smart ones. Not so smart ones. Good people. Bad people. Poor. Rich. Happy. […]

The Gospel

| August 26, 2014

We are called to know, believe, live, and proclaim the gospel. The gospel is God’s power at work, saving everyone who believes it (Rom 1:16). But we often truly do not remember what it is, or believe that it is really true. The gospel is all about Jesus (Rom 1:3). I wonder if a total […]

Family at Owen Park

| March 15, 2012

God has called us, as His representatives in our city, to reach out to the lost and broken, and to minister to the needs of the poor and oppressed.  This is a calling for all of us as the people of God.  Many in the Tulsa Boiler Room are actively involved in ministry to the […]

With Jesus

| February 13, 2012

Jesus went up on a mountainside and called to him those he wanted, and they came to him.  He appointed twelve that they might be with him and that he might send them out to preach and to have authority to drive out demons.  –Mark 3:13-15 I’ve developed kind of a bad habit lately.  It’s […]
