Here’s how we do it…

Talk about what you have seen Jesus do and what you have heard Him say. Generously. Don’t hold back. Live out-loud. Refuse to sensor yourself. Love God both in private and in public. Then look for where your words and actions are taking root and growing in the people around you. Your words and actions […]

Everything you need to GO, God will provide…

It began with a text. It morphed into a conversation. It resulted in two, $2,000 gift cards from Home Depot. Thank you Jesus! #thankyouhomedepot #thankyoukenzell Reading chapter 19 & 20 of John’s Gospel and am stuck thinking about the follow words spoken by Jesus, “As the Father has sent Me, even so I am sending […]

In fourteen days we will be leaving 23831 and relocating to 23005.

Humility or Shame. You choose.

Abram was 75 when he left Haran with only a promise from God. He was 86 when he decided that the promise from God needed some help. So at his wife’s insistence, he had sex with his wife’s servant and conceived a son. And then when Abram turned 99 God showed up in a powerful […]

“…The man who had died came out…”

I’m really happy this morning that the one who speaks to things that are dead with great effect is speaking to me today!! JESUS IS HIS NAME. Today Jesus, speak to those parts of me that are dead. Cause dreams now dead to live again; relationships now broken, to live again. Evaporated hope to appear […]
