This site will give my thoughts on a variety of topics. It will include thoughts on my family, youth ministry in general, my life as a part-time youth pastor, leading the emerging generation, topics of interest, and events I am part of.
This message is for Gracie Gaither of the Georgia Troop. Gracie-we are SO very proud of you. We realize this may be the most difficult thing you have ever done. We thank God that you would submit yourself to this program in order to gain everything He has for you. I want you to know that our love does NOT depend on anything you accomplish. At the same time, YOU are a very strong woman of God. He has called you his handmaiden and you know He can help you do the things you CAN NOT do on your own. That is what you are experiencing now. You can only do THROUGH Him, the challenges that lie ahead. Know that we are praying for you and we are loving you. It is very tempting, I'm sure, to take the easier path, but remember that you CAN endure anything if you trust in Christ. Whenever your finish is, we are still stinkin' proud of you! I only wish I was there to hug you and tell you myself how much I love you. Daddy-O and Mom.
A comment to my brothers and sisters in Christ. This is an 07 August Alumni "being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus!" [philpians 1:6] you can do it! carry strong and remember these are LIFE lessons you are learning. Jesus is more than enough for your broken and tired bodies. he wants to be your everything right now in these moments of your un-sureness. give it up - surrender it all, that is the only and best thing you could choose right now. know that prayers are constantly being offered up on your behalf. we are fighting for you!!!!

Hang in there, Jon Duban! We are so proud of you and excited to see how God will use this to build your character and make you a great servant of God. Keep persevering with hope that the best is yet to come! :)You will make it out and be a stronger man because of this. "Believe Him. Believe He can do what He says He can do.

Michael Dearden -- I am soooo proud of you and of your faith & ensurance and your trust in Christ and His strength! You are an amazing son and an inspiration to me.
