I finally caved in... and signed onto facebook... i think i received one too many invitations as well as nagging from my family and friends... it's been kinda fun, i have to admit... but i also need to be careful as i can probably spend many hours on it, and not do what i really need to do...
however one good thing, i had a really good chat with a dear friend of mine, who has been a great mentor and teacher especially during times of frustration, transition, and confusion... we… Continue

Dear Brothers and Sisters,
Thank you very much for you all for your wonderful comments of encouragement and concern about this ministry. We got encouraged with your comments.
It is painful to say that we have stopped most our ministry activities due to lack of funds for the last one year. We don’t have any sponsorers from local or abroad. We have started all these programmes with our own money. After a couple years, we are unable to run these programmes due to non… Continue

Ever since I moved, we have been working on getting the Take TWO blog post up and going. Yesterday I had a meeting with our web guys and mapped out some great ideas and directions for it. But now we are in a hold pattern until they can get it done. So for now we will use this one instead.
Please be patient and sorry for any inconvenience.

It ended yesterday. Yes this year we had a great time at our Mega Sports Camp, we saw a few hundred kids and a ton of great things taking place at the altar for these kids.
My favorite time for me personally would probably be the closing rally. Why? Because I enjoyed when my pastor (Larry Burton) allowed us to take these huge blow up balls and smack them around throughout our whole sanctuary. I enjoyed that I was able to set things on… Continue

Christie Brinkley + Peter Cook + pornography + infidelity. Huh? That doesn’t add up to FOUR. Unfortunately, it only adds up to ONE. What was he thinking? As beautiful as Christie is? Supermodel of all time. Ravishing beauty at his disposal. And, hey, Peter’s no dog himself! What a catch. Not. Looser!
I keep telling everyone: preservation of intimacy is a MUST in the home! The ten principles outlined in “Keeping His Pants On Until He Gets Home” is good for the Christie Brinkleys of… Continue

WOW what a life that I lead, what a journey that I am on.
Two weeks of seeing My mighty GOd move through this nation using me and my church family, 1428 added to his kingdom saved from a destiny of doom 4500 hungry hearts hearing his word, not sure of what took place but the seed still planted only to blossom in Gods timing.
Two weeks to remember two weeks that changed my life and shook my reality.
And now as I sit and stare out the window and allow my mind to… Continue

In our children's ministry we had our very first sleepover! We held it at a local YWAM base. It was a small group of 13 kids and we had an absolutely amazing time. Lots of prizes and fun and we got a small section of our youth band to come do praise and worship. One thing that came out of the weekend was a strengthening of relationships. Kids who would normally not have much to do with each other got closer and it enabled the leaders with the longer time frame to get to know the kids a lot… Continue

Wow!!! I am so thankful … Yesterday was an eventfully day… Let me tell you yesterday when I was heading to my friends house to go fishing when I was almost in a head-on collision. This pickup truck was coming down my lane and didn’t see me because he was too busy having road rage with the car that he was trying to pass. I hit the ditch at 55 mph and I drove at least a quarter a mile in the ditch thank God nothing was in the ditch. I thank God for keeping me safe…
This is a reminder… Continue

I have been in ministry for quite some time, (actually since I was a child,) over 30 years now. Because my father is a pastor, I have viewed ministry from the various angles of spectator, active participant, and the innocence of childhood.
Have you ever been to a show or a concert and had the opportunity to go backstage or perhaps work backstage? The audience experiences the wonder and awe of the presentation; but backstage is all the stuff nobody sees: dials and knobs, levers and pullies,… Continue

Well it's about 12:25 a.m. and I am all packed for Kids Camp. I can't wait to get on the road because I know for sure that God is going to do something good for our kids who are all going to kids camp.
Kid's Camp is always a wonderful time of God really moving in the lives of our kids. Last year we saw 13 kids filled with the Holy Spirit and my expectation is even more things to happen. I believe that our kids are ready for more of God and I can't wait to see what God has in store… Continue

What an amazing week we had at Southbrook Church. We actually had a light week in numbers of kids, thank goodness, but we still had so much fun and excitement. We sang the songs from our recent VBS Program, PowerLab. The songs were Power and Get Up. The kids absolutely LOVE to sing and do the motions for these songs ... and so do I! We had a great lesson from our curriculum, IWILLIGOWAY by Group where we learned about Salvation ... and, oh yeah we had over 20 kids accept the LORD as their… Continue

I love leadership and the many faces of it. As I am starting at my new church now I am looking at all the different stuff that I must take "A.I.M." at.
Here is a summary of what I am referring to:
ction. I need to find what to take action in. This is determined and seen by the ability to initiate strategy and change that will serve as a catalyst around what others can align their efforts and together produce results that… Continue

This has just been a crazy busy week. I was on my way to Dallas from Shreveport spent one hour in the line at the DMV to let them tell me I have to get other paperwork signed and my pocket book has suffered because of getting my car legal in the state of Louisiana.
I pick up a u-haul and headed to FC with a couple of youth from my old church load it up and head back to the inlaws eat dinner @ about 8:45 and get back on the road to Shreveport @ 9 p.m. to get back to the church @ 1:15… Continue

My thoughts upon rising this morning were those of gratefulness. Thank you, Lord, for another day in a free country. Thank you, Troops, for the sacrifice you are making for me this very day. You are apart from your families fighting abroad, defending my safety, my security, my freedom in this country – the United States of America, the home of the brave and the free! You are why I can rise and give thanks to a good God, the one Almighty Lord Who is the author of life in its brevity and its… Continue

I recently started helping with praise and worship in childrens church. I work with grades 1-6. I'm looking for new songs that would be good for that age group and ways that I can better minister to them. If anyone could give me some ideas or comments that would be great! Thanks

This week at Southbrook ... in Children's Ministry this week we will be continuing in our curriculum that we have had for the last 8 weeks. It is Camp IWILLIGOWAY (Yeah say that ten times fast) from Group. It has been a very fun series for the kids and it is giving us time to focus on what will happen in the fall. (New building and new stage ... but a post for another time I guess) This week’s message is the Salvation Message. I am excited about our volunteers giving this message to the kids… Continue
