CH-CH-CH-Changes!

by Seabreeze

Last week, I took a trip to Mississauga, Canada. I needed to go up there to get our household items through customs and to get my work visa. It was a very productive trip, and I was able to see all of the differences of their country. It is not a surprise to anyone that […]

Why I Love Youth Ministry and Always Will

by Seabreeze

In my office I have many pictures. I like pictures because they show us where we have been and what has changed since we have been there. In my office, there are three pictures that are displayed on my walls. One is the very first Junior High Jell-O night that we had when I first […]

From Surf to Snow

by Seabreeze

A few weeks ago, I announced that my family and I will be moving to Canada in June.  We will be moving into the city of Mississauga, which is about 30 miles West of Toronto. This decision was not made lightly or without any input from God. This has been something that has been stirring […]

Love Like Jesus

by Seabreeze

This month our High School students will be headed to Los Angeles, California to work at the Center For Student Missions (CSM). This has proven to be a great two-day experience for them as they emerge from the Orange curtain to see how people live just 30 miles away. This will be our third year […]

I’m just not there, yet!

by Seabreeze

Philippians 4:1 says, “Therefore, my brothers, you whom I love and long for, my joy and my crown, that is how you should stand firm in the Lord, dear friends! This verse is very close to the end of Philippians, I read it and said to myself, “so… how do I stand firm?” Well, the […]

It’s Busy Time

by Seabreeze

This last week, we started up our Junior High and High School Growth Groups. This is always an exciting time for us in that we get to see students come in after a long day of school and homework and connect with their leaders, peers, and hopefully, if everything goes well, God. The point of […]

To East Asia and Back!

by Seabreeze

I just got home from a very exciting trip to East Asia, in which we took 11 students, who taught Conversational English to Asian students. I was overjoyed as I watched our students, ranging from 14 to 20 yrs old, share their faith in Jesus Christ with another group of students who did not know […]
