Impacts of the Kingdom in Nepal

The Kingdom of God amazes me every time I enter a new country. I’m completely humbled by the community I have found here in Nepal and the people who are now my brothers and sisters. It doesn’t really matter so much about the country, it mostly matters about the relationships you build in that place. That’s the reason I want to go back to every country I have ever visited. Thailan...

Pursue Excellence in Business

People follow Excellence

It seems crazy to me that even while I wasn’t following God, He was preparing me for something bigger. While I was off being a prodigal, God was actually preparing me for bringing Kingdom a few years later. Some of you know my story, some of you don’t, but I spent a year working for Apple Inc. at one of their corporate offices in Austin, TX. Now, almost three years later I am using the...

Coffee Shop vs Corporate Office

In March we had the pleasure of hearing one of the master roasters of Starbucks coffee come out to speak with us at Schoffstall Farms in Harrisburg, PA and he introduced us to the word avad. Avad is a Hebrew word used all throughout the Bible that is almost always translated as to work or to serve.   But in Exodus 3:12 it is written like this from God speaking to Moses: “When you have brought the ...

God Speaking Through a Sparrow

I’ve been noticing for a few months how, I’ve honestly felt like, God was using animals to show His love towards me.  Squirrels seeming like they are staring at me, peering into my heart.  Birds hopping all around me while I sit on a park bench; catching myself throwing them a few scraps of food as they come unusually close.  Even dogs, when I need it most, coming up to me and becoming...

Writing for Your Children

Kingdom Journeys is a unique experience because it combines an older generation with a younger generation.  Cross-generational ministry is something that Adventures in Missions has just started doing with The World Race.  Kingdom Journeys has started out with four mentors out on the field with us and it’s been an amazing experience to have them. Seth has been teaching us how Jesus led, fough...

Boundaries are a Boundary

I use boundaries and have them in my life but I’m wondering if they are just something we’ve accepted as a “Christian practice” instead of what Jesus and the Bible tell us how to live.  I’m even wondering if there are healthy boundaries… I’ve been wrestling with the idea that boundaries actually create a boundary from the Holy Spirit moving in our lives.  ...

Praying for Healing on the Camino de Santiago

Today, my leg was healed by Tom from Northern Ireland. The Camino has a unique community about it, one like I haven’t seen very often… If you have been on the World Race, it’s very similar to the way your squad bonds so quickly.  You walk with the same people every day, see them every night and almost all are all caring, serving and preferring others in front of themselves. I have been...

He is Jealous for Me

He is Jealous for Me

We have been walking the Camino de Santiago now for two days, the first day was 19 miles and today was 12 miles in the freezing rain.  It’s been a tough few days walking for an entire day with a big pack on my back, I just assumed the Camino was an easy thing but it’s not. Neil shared something with me today that really hit me to my core and resonated deep in my soul. He is jealous for...

Spain is Rich with Community

It’s incredible to me that God brought us to Spain to start Kingdom Journeys.  I’ve just seen so much from the way this culture lives their lives that it makes sense to me that God would want us to begin in such a rich place. This country is rich with community. Dinner here doesn’t start until about 8PM each night for the Spanish people and they want to spend at least 2 hours at ...

Climbing the Levels of My Spiritual Life

Kingdom Journeys is less than a week from launching in Spain with a marathon and walking the Camino de Santiago.  I am currently in Spain with Justin and we are exploring the country a little bit before the launch.  Hoping to get some time to listen to the Lord about what He is wanting to do in our lives while we are in this country. He spoke to me yesterday as I was running around the city of Ali...
