Christmas Eve Services @ Cornerstone!

Check out some new creative ideas that we are working with for our Christmas Eve services at the church! We’re going to be able to have all 5 worship leaders (Brian Wurzell, Ryan Axtell, Luke Peach, Seth Wells, and myself) leading various parts throughout the services, and this part is probably my favorite!

Trust me! You need to see THIS…it’s incredible! And I think it really portrays the real reason for the season…


Here is LOVE.

Sorry Blog-O-Buddies! It’s been several days since I’ve been able to post. But it’s for the BEST reason….

Cruz is finally here!!!!!!!!!

Cruz in hospital He came into this world on November 16th at 2:23am and he’s the most wickedly awesome little guy ever!

He was a bit stubborn, seeing as how he was 9 days late, but nevertheless Cruz finally made it.

It’s been quite a journey these last 9 months preparing and praying and waiting. And this last week has been a blur as Jess and I have stepped into this parenthood deal! It really places a different lens on life for me and I can’t fathom how God saw me fit and mature enough to charge Jess and I over a little life…






Today I had the great privilege of golfing for free in the King of King’s Skate Ministry Golf Tournament. At the renowned Ocotillo golf course. For free. I got a free polo shirt (for those dress up days). Free lunch. No less than 10 free Red Bulls, of which I downed 5 during the round. A free 10 min massage. Did I mention that it was free?

Thanks to Andrew for the invite and to a guy named Marques for paying for us, it was indeed a grand day. 72 degree weather. Up at dawn. Freaking the 2 dudes out that played on me and Andrew’s team with our sardonic and ill-selected humor. Seriously though, I don’t think this one guy laughed the entire time and we were pulling out all the stops to crack him.

You can’t win em all I guess.

Anyhow, twas a Terrific Tuesday. And if you haven’t heard of the King of King’s ministry, you need to. God is using some tremendous fellas to speak into the lives of a TON of young kids and adults at skate parks and events across the whole nation and abroad.

And these guys can RIP. Serious. Some of the best skating I’ve seen in a long time.

You can check them out and their latest video here which just debuted 2 weeks ago. The video “Burl Factor” is absolutely beautiful.

Peep em out peeps.

Another November 4th.

Here we are.

After 2 years of campaigns, pundits, and promises, we arrive at the fated day of November 4th 2008. To be honest I’m sitting here at 11:10am and still am not sure who will get my nod for president, but in any case, whoever wins, I’m humbled and feel somewhat overwhelmed that we in America get the privilege to do what we do on this day. To cast our individual vote without fear of retribution or harm. To freely express our ideas.

Even though some may judge others for their decision….we are free to make that decision.

So take advantage of the liberty that you have been so blessed with and get out there and share your voice. Because there are MILLIONS who have never experienced and will never experience being able to be heard.

See you on the flipside peeps…
