I apologize for it being so long since my last post. If I’m honest I just haven’t felt creative enough to write out a post. God is still doing incredible things at Five Stones and I think that is another reason that I just haven’t had time to sit down and write about all that [...]
Confession #1: I have this love hate relationship with blogging. I struggle with making the time to write out what God is doing in my life and especially in the life f the church that I lead.
Confession #2: God has been doing so much in the life of our church that I’ve reached the place [...]
We all know that the success rate for any marriage hovers around 50 percent. What most people don’t know is that the marriages that make it struggle with how satisfied they are in that relationship. This past week at Five Stones we tackled the subject of how to Stay Soul Mates with your Spouse and [...]
Looked like we had another packed house today at Five Stones. I struggled with the message today not because of content but because I tweaked my back. I hope that people took to heart the wisdom found in SOS 2:15. Looks like this is going to be one of our most popular series. Our Vimeo [...]

This article was written over 40 years ago about the need for Godly prepared men filling our pulpits and leading our churches. It was about a need to hear a Word from God on Sunday and not just filler. Convicting.

For those that took the Awakening 21 Day Challenge you are now 6 days into the fast. I am so proud of you for hanging in their the first 7 days are always the hardest. I have had so many people ask me why our church is doing a 21 day fast so I thought [...]
All I can say is that God is doing some great things at Five Stones and today was no exception. There is a business concept called the Flywheel that applies to all organizations coined by Jim Collins in his book “Good to Great.” In his book, Jim describes the flywheel as a “massive metal disk [...]
After having some time off it was good to be back at Five Stones today. To be honest our staff and volunteers were exhausted after the close of the Christmas Eve Service. Tons of great things taking place today at Five Stones. Thought we had a great turn out to start our new series “Choices” [...]
