What is one of your greatest memories from a ministry experience?
One of my best ministry experiences was playing bass guitar in a ska band called the Insyderz in the late 90′s. I traveled the country with 7 other guys for 4 years, playing music we loved and hanging with great people in every city.

I am learning what faithfulness looks like.  Also this past Summer, Carmel and I, had the opportunity to spend six-weeks in Israel learning Hebrew.  I am still working very hard to retain what I learned over the Summer.

Coming to grips with the history of the Christianity in a church history class – inspired, embarrassed, disgusted and challenged. This is my history.
