The Farmer, The Gospel, The Competitor
Run in such a way to WIN the prize. I get so excited about winning! Winning…not for ‘my’ glory, but for the glory of God. Winning, not in a way such as to win the prize by myself, but to bring as many people across the finish line with me.
This past week the farmer arrived on our property and harvested the beans and corn. One day SOON, the Lord is going to come and harvest and deliver us from darkness to his glorious kingdom.
The OT has a brief story about a deliverer and a farmer. His name is Shamgar. (Judges 3:31) This farmer gives us a great picture as to how to use the Gospel – “the good news” for God’s glory! He started where he was, he used what he had to deliver the people, and he did what he could.
Don’t let anyone in this race called life beat you in: GIVING – Give Much; LOVING – Love Much; SERVING – Serve Much; BELIEVING – Believe God for much.
Those tools are in all of our toolboxes. How will we use what we have to accomplish His Mission for us?

I am a visionary architect who is passionate about seeing dreams realized and implemented so that together we can better our world physically and spiritually. I get excited about leadership development and seeing the church multiplied as people embrace their creative side and breathe life and hope into their world. There is nothing that motivates me more than serving the young, the lost, the poor and the elderly.
I have been serving the Lord full-time for over 35 years. I consider myself a ‘life coach.’ For many years I was on the playing pitch. My role today is to train and invest in the next wave of ‘players’ who are serious about winning. My team runs to ‘win’…to win the prize of knowing that we embraced the high calling of God. To serve him with all that we have and give him all the glory.
I have been privileged to serve God as a youth pastor, school administrator, church planter, lead pastor, mission director, business owner, crisis and catastrophe director and college professor. That God chooses to use me to direct our amazing team blows me away. I love my job!
