Family Pics

Here are some pics we took the other day...

Tuesday, April 13, 2010


Allie had her 2 year old birthday party last Saturday. She is so awesome. We have the best girls in the world!!! Here are some pics from her birthday.

This is a busy week. We have Master's Commission coming in Wednesday night for a special service for REMIX. Then Sunday night we kick off our new time and new day for REMIX. Sunday's are going to work out great since we won't be competing with school. So many kids are not able to be there every week because of homework, sporting events and another school night, so Sunday nights we won't compete with any of that. A lot of students have been so excited that school won't be an issue now on Sundays. Also, many of our leaders have a hard time getting there by 7pm on a work day, so this will enable us to make it easier for leaders as well as being able to gain new ones that otherwise wouldn't be able to get involved. Another reason is that we can go longer now, 6pm - 8pm as opposed to 7pm - 8:30pm. Only having an hour and a half means we have to thump it to get through everything, but now we can extend worship and ministry a bit more and dig a little deeper. Some kids don't get home late on a school night now because service ends at 8:30pm and by the time they get home it's after 9pm. With moving it up a bit we can get them home and ready for school a little earlier. Also, now we can do more before REMIX like something called Pre-Mix. We can have some short burst of small groups, a cookout, basketball games, classes, or whatever we want just a little bit before REMIX and knock it out in one day. This works so much better than trying to do things on different days. Say we want to have a 3 week breakout on understanding and reading your Bible, now we can offer that at PREMIX and get a much better response than if we had to offer it on a whole 'nutha day. There are just a few reasons why Sunday is going to be the best night for us in the long run to connect.

This weekend we kick off our new series, "Go Fish" on Sunday mornings. It is going to be an awesome series for the next 6 weeks, I am really excited about it. Whenever we do a new series there is a lot that goes into the graphics, power point, videos, dramas, decor and more. So the week before a new series is always action packed with getting ready, and this week is no exception.

Well, I need to get at it so that is the story for today.

Happy Birthday little Allie!!! Today is Allie's 2nd birthday. She is awesome!!! It is so amazing to see your little kids grow up and learn more and more everyday. We pray that Zion & Allie become everything that God has for them. Parenting is about raising up these blessings from God to fulfill God's plan for their life and that is what we are learning how to do daily. It isn't always easy but it is part of the call God has on us as parents. Our 1st ministry is to our girls. We are believing the best for them as well as trying to instill God's love for them. We have been doing a music Monday night for the past few weeks. Every Monday night I get the guitar out, Erin gets some sort of instrument, Zion gets one and Allie. We pick a scripture talk about it then sing a worship song together. Sometimes it's upbeat and fun sometimes it's slow and worshipful, but we want to teach them about expressing our love to God. It is a great way for them to get active with an instrument or just dancing for God. We really want to do more with the girls as far as having family Bible times, prayer, etc... but it is so hard when you get going in life. But I guess you can't wait for time you have to MAKE time for those important things in life. If we wait around they will probably be graduated by the time we get to it, so we are trying to be proactive and intentional about creating and committing to time.

Encounter Weekend was awesome, so here is a highlight video of a powerful weekend!!!

Busy Times Again...

Well, this last few weeks were crazy!!! 1st off Encounter Weekend was AMAZING!!! We had a powerful weekend where students were giving their life to Christ and encountering God's supernatural work in their life. Our leaders did an amazing job putting on the entire weekend, I am so proud of them for their leadership and commitment. We will have a high light video coming soon.

Last week I went to Louisiana to move up Travis & Ashley Hebert and their wonderful kids. I got to drive a 24 foot beast of a moving truck back up to Indiana. While I was down there I got to eat some serious Crawfish cajun-style baby!!! It is so great to know God is moving up called people to Martinsville, Indiana to get planted into what God is doing here. We have an awesome church that is making a HUGE impact in our area. Our services seem to be getting better and better each week, while lives are being changed for Christ!!!

We just ended our series on the Trinity called "God3". I got to close out the series Sunday morning speaking on WHO IS GOD? check out the message on our website www.hhchurch.com

Here is the 2nd episode of Spirit Hunters...

Alright, I haven't blogged in like hmmmmm......forever. So here is my first attempt in 2010. What a great year so far!!! God is moving and we are doing awesome!!! There is way too much to catch everyone up with so here goes a little.

Jarred Day moved up here from Texas. He is a 22 year old young man who is awesome!!! He is interning here @ HHC!!! I believe God is going to use him in amazing ways to impact our area for Christ!!!

Church is going great. We are growing week by week and seeing incredible things take place day by day. We have been focusing on raising up leaders to take our church to the next level.

Encounter Weekend is this weekend for the youth. We are hooking up with several other youth groups for an amazing weekend together. Pastor Tim Roberson from Las Vegas is flying in to speak and hang with us all weekend. It is going to be a powerful time, so please be praying for LIFE CHANGE in our teenagers!!!

Erin threw me the best 30th birthday party EVER!!! She so surprised me with old friends from all over (even Louisiana). It was the best birthday I could have ever imagined. It was Mexican food all over and a great time!!! Thank you my AMAZING WIFE!!!

Many other things are taking place that I don't have time to dig into yet, because we are taking our beautiful girls to the park on a beautiful day. So I will fill you in later. Check out this video we did for our series on Sunday as we have been talking about the Holy Spirit.

Christmas Time

Well I am sitting here with my amazing family doing our Christmas tradition. Every year the week of Christmas we pull out the blow up mattress, blankets, pillows and all into the living room around the Christmas tree and T.V.. We stay up late watching Christmas movies, eating wonderful goodies, and just hang out snuggling together. It is one of my most favorite of times together. Tonight on the menu: Chicken Parmesan, Toasted Bread w/Bruschetta, Tortelleni w/Alfredo Sauce, Strawberry Lemonade, & some great desserts. On the T.V., my favorite Christmas movie: White Christmas. What a great time with family.

A few weeks ago at church we had our Christmas special with the children & youth doing some drama's. We did a human video to the song One Way which the youth band did live. It was awesome. We had almost 50 people on the stage doing the human video. It was a Remix Christmas Musical. Check it out below.

Thanksgiving & Wal-Mart

Well, we had a great Thanksgiving except Allie got a 103 temperature fever and was not feeling well. She is doing better tonight, but just starting to. We were able to eat lots of food and sit back a little, so that is always good. We are getting over our Thanksgiving food coma I guess. We decided next year we are going to join the hard core shoppers and experience Black Friday at 12am or so. We don't really care about the shopping to much. Erin and I just want to experience madness and see what the craziness is all about, we figured it would be a good experience at least once in our life. So next year 2010 we are going for sure!!! Thanksgiving week is always a good week to rest since we don't have our mid week services. I cherish this time very dearly to have a normal week and not a 110 miles per hour week as usual. You have to know when to put your life in 5th gear and know when to put it in 1st. This weekend I am speaking at church for our Family Is series. I am excited and as always have a LOT to share. I find in putting together messages the hardest part is trying to figure out what doesn't need to be said. I start with about a million thoughts and ideas and have to shave it down to the most important things that flow well together and need to be said. I feel when I put together a message I have to shave 3 hours worth of talking to 30-45 minutes worth. That's not always easy to do, but must be done as a communicator. After all a communication is best when more can be said in a little amount of time rather than a little being said over a long period of time. A rather tough balance sometimes when you have a lot to say but only a little that truly needs to get through. I am always honored to get to speak to our church thought and am very excited about what God has put in my heart to share.

On a side note: Donnie and I were at Wal-Mart the other day getting some spray paint for a project we were doing at the church. Well, when he picked up a bottle the top was busted and it fell to the ground. The nozzle got stuck in and starting spraying everywhere. Donnie quickly grabbed it and stuck in a box until it drained all the paint, but not before it sprayed the floor, display unit and end cap. Then when the attendant came over after all this she picked it up to throw away the empty can and it started to spray everywhere again (revenge of the can I guess). Needless to say we decided it was time to leave. To this day weeks later we left our mark @ Wal-Mart, probably forever.
