Foursquare Connection 2014

Right after our church gathering on Sunday, I left for our annual Foursquare Connection in Dallas, TX. The event happens Monday – Thursday, so as I’m writing this on Tuesday night, we’re halfway through. Foursquare Connection is the annual gathering of our Foursquare pastors. It’s kind of like a big family reunion. We gather for […]

Why Is the Sun Up in the Middle of the Night?

I’m in Chicago on a couple hour layover. It’s 4:10 am according to my body, but Chicago believes it’s 6:10 am. I left LAX at about 10:45 pm. All this makes for a short night, but I’m sure my body will painfully remind me of that in short order once I arrive in Christiansburg, Virginia. […]

Taste of Heaven

I think we tasted Heaven. I mean yesterday, in our Sunday celebration. The sanctuary was packed, which is usually not the case for a holiday weekend like the 4th of July. It wasn’t packed because everyone decided to show up on an off weekend, though. It was packed because NewHeart gathered with our sister church, […]

Foursquare Connection, Day 4

This was the final day of our annual Foursquare Connection. A good one as well. Started off at 8:15 am (that’s 5:15 am my time!) with the final business session, where a couple of final reports were presented and votes were cast for some bylaw changes and other business. At 10:00, the final session began […]

Foursquare Connection, Day 3

Full day! After a great morning session with Ed Stetzer, the Advancing Leaders Collaborative Learning Tracks went for several hours with a break for lunch. I had the opportunity to share lunch with a new friend today. Pastor Alex Prokopchik serves as Pastor of the North Hollywood Foursquare Church, both the English AND Russian speaking […]

Foursquare Connection, Day 2

The morning started out very nicely and continued on through the day. I mentioned last night that if one were to try to keep up with the entirety of the Convention schedule, you would be at meetings from 8:30 am through at least 9:30 pm with only breaks for lunch and dinner. I, for one, […]

Foursquare Connection, Day 1

Yesterday ended quite badly, starting with arriving to my hotel room at about 2:00 am Columbus time. That in and of itself was not entirely a bad thing. It was buffered by a great conversation with a guy I sat with on the plane from Chicago to Columbus and a shared cab ride with one […]

Waiting For A Jet Plane, Among Other Things

Sitting at Chicago O’Hare Airport, waiting for my 9:05 (7:05 PST) to board and take off at 11:00 (9:00 PST), which is midnight in Columbus, Ohio, my destination. Attending our annual Foursquare Convention with about 2,000 other Foursquare Pastors and Leaders. Circumstances have kept me from attending the last two years, so I’m looking forward […]

What’s The Big Deal About Israel?

I mentioned in my message last Sunday just a little bit about the importance of Christians standing with Israel. I believe it’s particularly important to talk about this in light of President Obama’s recent statement. It took me a long time as a Christian to get this issue. By “getting it”, I don’t claim to […]
