I want to talk to you.
Maybe it’s you as an individual, or maybe it’s a small group, or a large one. But I want to speak with you. I want to share the story of how God has been teaching us and working through us.
For the past few months, as we’ve been reminiscing over our time in Allendale, I realized that I’ve had a number of wonderful opportunities to speak to groups — churches, parents, college students, and more. Though I don’t foresee myself as a professional lecturer, I have enjoyed discussing with others what we have been learning.
Besides informal conversations with individuals and groups of leaders, I’ve also been able to speak in more formal situations. Here are some of the times that I have been asked to speak to groups:
- Pre-game devotion, teaching Sunday School, and Preaching (October 2011). All in one Culturally-Engaged Weekend.
- A Radio Show (May 2012). I talked about the need for change, first in our individual lives, then in our families, churches, and culture.
- The Sticks Conference (October 2012). A conference for church leaders from smaller cities. I talked about “Connecting with Your Community.” Here’s my 3-part summary: Theological Framework, Practical Principles, and Applications.
- Talk to a youth group (December 2012). A friend of mine leads this group of boys, and I talked about how Your Life Is Not About You; It’s About Jesus.
- Hope Academy (April 2013). I don’t have a write up of this talk (yet), but it was for a 2-year celebration of a university model school (Hope Academy, in Charlotte).
- The Greater Good (November 2013). For college students thinking about working in the non-profit world.
- Community Bible Church (February 2014). I shared our story, especially what we have learned about Hope, Hospitality, and Missions.
Some of these events have been paid, some haven’t. Don’t worry about that. Being able to help others in their journeys and being able to spread God’s glory is more important than me making money.
I’d love to talk with you, and/or your group. I can talk about:
- Ministry, and engaging one’s community
- Parenting and marriage
- Personal and spiritual growth
- something else?!
