Excited to Share


Posted by Casey Pruitt on

My son is starting first grade this year. I pick him up in the afternoons, and one of my favorite things is to see what he is excited to tell me happened that day. Some pickups are met with more excitement than others, but he always has something he wants to share with me. Something about that...

Why We Go


Posted by Nolan Jones III on

The question we are focusing on this week is this: Why do we believe missions is an important part of our ministry and our lives? When we hear the word “missions,” we usually think of two things: short-term missions, where someone goes for a week or two to some other country to...

Here I Am. Send Me.


Posted by Joy Vroonland on

Why do we do missions?  My short answer: because all believers are called to share the gospel. Of course, there are all kinds of ways to respond to this general call.  But I have found that when we get away to an unfamiliar environment, where we are out of our leagues and dependent on...

Please Don't Send Me to Africa


Posted by Andrew Knight on

Please Don't Send Me to Africa was the title of a song we sang in church youth choir. The tongue-in-cheek parody was an honest expression of many believers' attitudes toward missions: I'll serve you here in suburbia with my comfortable middle-class life, But please don't send me to Africa where...

No Substitute for Worship


Posted by Ian Crosby on

I love being a youth pastor here at c|Life. I get the opportunity to lead students and leaders, along with being on staff with people I consider to be some of my best friends. As much as I love doing what I do, summer can get a little tiring, especially this past summer. Between youth camp...

Putting the First Things First


Posted by Crystal Brashear on

Have you ever known what the right thing to do was, but found yourself failing to do it, over and over again? If so, that means you’re human. Most of us have lived long enough to experience the frustration that comes when we don’t do what we know we ought to do. Sometimes, head...

Misunderstanding Why We Serve


Posted by Rebecca Spence on

Ah, Pokemon Go. Due to a sad state of affairs regarding the cell phone situation at our house, our 9-year-old has been left out of the Pokemon Go craze. Up until recently, that is. While visiting my in-laws in Florida this summer, my father-in-law happily offered up his cell phone to our...

Wanting to Help


Posted by Joe Paris on

My wife and I have two daughters who are enamored with the world and extremely curious about how everything works. My family just moved to Texas around the first of June, so our house is “in process,” which means we have a lot of boxes and a lot of Ikea furniture to put...

Service Is More Than An Action


Posted by Scott Hiney on

It’s likely that most of us see service primarily as an action-based idea, and I think that really puts us at a disadvantage when it comes to serving God and his kingdom properly. Yes, many acts of service involve us physically utilizing our bodies, but none of that will ever matter if...

Find Your Role


Posted by Riley Roberson on

I think we get a major thing pretty backwards. Usually, when we do some sort of service, we feel really good about it. We feel like we did God this huge favor, took time out of our lives, and so on. And then when we sin, we think, “I messed up, but no biggie. I’m pretty good...
