I struggle a lot myself with staying motivated consistently. I love my job but sometimes find myself in a rut where I am not as productive as I want to be. One thing I found as a huge motivator to me is from my WIN file. A WIN file is simply a place that you can keep things that will inspire you and motivate you. I keep this file in my desk at my office. When I am down, or feel like nothing I am doing is working, I take a look at the WIN… Continue

So, where do you stand? Usually when you hear that question, it is referring to being on one side or the other of a certain point of view. Today, I want you to realize that you have a UNIQUE POSITION in which you are spiritually standing in your call of ministry. The first few verses of Deuteronomy chapter five clearly illustrate this for you. As Moses speaks to all of Israel, he reminds them that he… Continue

One of the most important aspects of learning about ministry is that of
process. Ministry process has to have proper focus and direction. It
needs to start with Jesus flow through Him and end with Him. Often
times I have thought about what that looks like not only in ministry but
in life in general. Does my whole life have a process? Is it a
process of a life lived for Jesus? Or is it a process of a life lived
for Doug? Is it me centered of Jesus centered?… Continue

I was in a no-win situation on Sunday and was totally defeated. It's been difficult to get past it. Last night I read a devotion from "Mad Church Desease". It said I must first hurt. The second part encouraged me to focus on my best qualities. I thought about that. At least for me, I tend to stay in the hurt, until time lessens the pain, only to repeat it again. I have determined today to strengthen what I'm good at and not pay much attention to what I'm not good at.
What is it that… Continue

Here's a review of Club Hero curriculum written by Mark Harper ministries.
We started using Club Hero when it was first released in January of this year (2010). I had previously used "Super Church" years ago at my last church. I liked Super Church but it need some updating in my opinion.
Here's Club Hero as I see it:
1) "Spirit-filled". I won't apologize for being who I am and what I believe. I believe kids are just as capable to understand these principles as was… Continue
