Germany Bound

Editor’s Note: After 595 days, I know everyone has eagerly awaited my latest post. Well, here it is!

It’s that time of year again – baseball camp in Germany. For the past 13 years, I’ve had the opportunity to travel to Lübbecke, Germany, for a sports-based mission trip that uses baseball as the tool to glorify God by making disciples who transform the world.

From July 20-25 we will host our annual camp in Lübbecke for approximately 120 kids that range from ages 8 to 18. For the first time, I will be transitioning from an instructor that teaches the fundamentals of the game, to a coach, which is tasked with working one-on-one with a team of ~12 campers while building relationships with them on and off of the field.1930619_576198446623_2958_n

I’m thoroughly excited to see what God has in store for us during the baseball camp and cannot wait to see how the week pans out. Throughout the camp I will be posting updates on this website as well as photos on my Instagram page.

For those asking how you can help, I’d recommend prayer that we can reach the campers that aren’t familiar with Ephesians 2:8.

Growth Group

As many of you know, I’ve been involved with a Growth Group at GBC Houston. Growth Groups cover some of the most foundational truths and ministry skills needed to participate in God’s Kingdom work. In 2014, I was a member of a group, and in 2015 I have served as a co-lead for a great group here in Houston.

I feel that the last 1.5 years have helped to prepare me for my new role as a coach for our camp.

Podcast

And one last plug before we call it a night. Late last month, I had an opportunity to record a podcast with Rachel Duke that covers John 5. If you are looking for something to listen to while you work, I’d recommend giving it a listen by clicking on this link.
