This Sunday, Dr. Jerry Root


I’m excited Christ Community Church is having Dr. Jerry Root speak again, this Sunday, at the Old Mill and Online Campuses. Dr. Root is a professor at Wheaton College and an expert on the life of C.S. Lewis.

Back in 2010, I had the blessing to host him for an afternoon and it was a treat. We spent a few hours talking and eating at Dundee Dell. I didn’t want the time to end. (more…)

What’s Next with the Online Campus {Video}

We’ve had a great 2013 so far at the Online Campus. One thing we’ve done is launch a midweek service. We’re going to kill that. Something better is in the works…

Game Changer


This Saturday, we are blessed to have Derek and Kathy Redmond Brown sharing at Gathering: Game Changer. Derek is a former running back for the Nebraska Cornhuskers, and Kathy (his wife) is a graduate of the school. When Kathy was a student at Nebraska, she was raped by one of Derek’s teammates. Kathy and Derek will be sharing their stories of forgiveness and reconciliation.

Gathering: Game Changer will be this Saturday, in the Student Center, starting at 7 PM. It will also be live streamed to the Online Campus.

Beyond The Message: Project 4:4 Reflections {Video}

In the latest Beyond The Message, I sit down with my wife, Jana Murphy, to discuss her thoughts on completing Project 4:4. Jana has helped lead the MOPS ministry at CCC (Mothers of Preschoolers), and is a part of the Online Campus team.

Beyond The Message: Superhero Films {Video}

Klint Bitter (Middle School Pastor) and I sit down to discuss superhero films in the latest Beyond The Message. We did this partly for fun, but also because we are often asked about superhero films by parents. We discuss the draw people have with the films, and some guidelines for parents with allowing their kids to see these types of films.

Beyond The Message: Minimalism and the Bible {Video}

In the latest Beyond The Message, I had the opportunity to sit down with Joshua Becker and talk about minimalism. Joshua is an author and speaker on the topic, and has been writing about his own minimalism journey at his blog Becoming Minimalist.

I first heard Joshua share about minimalism back in 2010, and it impacted my life. Since then, I’ve had the joy of getting to know Joshua better through social media and in person.

Recently, Joshua was passing through Omaha and he had some time to sit down and talk about minimalism. We also discussed how many of the values of minimalism are also Biblical values.
