weeds

a  brand new series @ “embrace community” join us this Thursday @ 7pm

We have been talking about how determined, resilient, and uncontrollable weeds are… those jokers pop up everywhere!! no matter what you do to weeds THEY NEVER STOP GROWING!!! or at least in my flower bed….

 we should be that way in our faith.. we need to grow and grow and grow and don’t allow anything to stop us from growing.

growth is a key to success.. don’t give up.. keep learning, growing, be driven to grow!

realworld_embrace

May 28th is a event i am personally extremely excited about..

when i look throughout the young adult generation i see real people with real problems.. we can identify that there is a problem to this generation all day long but..

when a problem is identified without a real solution, the problem becomes a lifestyle and we loose the person with the problem!

3 weeks 2 days and counting… get ready….to kick off the summer “real world” at embrace community…





Moving on

28 04 2009

My wife and I had dinner tonight with 1 of our 2 graduates that are moving on to new seasons of their life..

Kelly has been with us at embrace for almost 3 years. She has been with us since the birth of this ministry and has played suched a vital role in our success.

Kelly is a graduate from Embry Riddle University.. We have seen Kelly grow into such an amazing woman, who truly has a pure heart after God. In the next 3 months Kelly will be graduating, getting married, and then soon on to graduate school.

Kelly has been really close to our heart and we wish and pray for huge things in her life and marriage! We love you Kelly and are sooo proud of you!!





(pre) fix

25 04 2008

we at embrace had a service tonight and started our new series (pre)fix! our last service with the college students for the summer! they will be absent from embrace until august! ready to have them back already! we had a celebration tonight for graduates, and welcoming in the summer!

tonight was amazing service, good crowd alot of visitors, and people who were really touched..

(pre)fix part one tonight we discussed “preparation before promise”

we studied through the life of moses and his seasons of preparation all the way up to the day of passover.

Preparation is not always fun but always necessary

preparation is not always easily figured out but always has a purpose

preparation can be frustrating but always rewarding

our seasons of preparation can be tiring, frustrating, confusing, and painful.. but just like moses he meet his divine purpose at a burning bush.. after 80 years of preparation finally he meets his moment in time were he is called to his purpose. on the day of passover the children of Israel were instructed to (make a long story short) eat with your sandals on and your staff in your hand…

God told his children I am bringing you out… just make sure your ready when i call.. have you shoes on (shoes represent movement) and your staff in your hand (represents direction and protection)

are you ready when he calls you into your purpose? after preparation are your sandals on your feet ready to “rise and go” or are your sandals still sitting by the door?

what are your sandals? more prayer time, more worship, more study time, release of bitterness, forgiveness? etc… whatever it is.. get your sandals on and be ready for your time!
