Too Many Calories—Not Enough Sustenance!

April 10, 2017

I didn’t do it for Lent or anything, but I am on a very strict diet and doing my level best to stay away from the dessert table. Honestly, I have felt for a long time that I could live on ice cream and cookies. But more recently I have been experiencing the good feeling …


The Tension in the Truth

March 31, 2016

During the time allotted for sermon prep, pastors frequently feel a growing dissonance about a tension created by the biblical text from which they are working. To illustrate, if I were planning to speak on abortion, I might begin to feel a growing tension as I prepare. I would sense the need to express grace …


Days of Preparation

March 21, 2016

DAY 5: HOW BEAUTIFUL Different style of music—same message. Different vocalists—same message. Watch Eddie and Ben take an operatic form and stoke the fires of our worship all the more in this memorable presentation from last year’s Good Friday service.


From Agony to Glory

April 10, 2015

Blown away and very, very grateful for the team of tireless artists and technicians who dreamed and planned and delivered our most impactful Good Friday/Easter services combo, ever. Their breadth of styles and creativity of presentation were a bountiful bouquet—a panoramic palette of hues and shades that illumined Jesus Christ, from agony to glory, in …


A Time to Dance

April 21, 2014

So proud of and thankful for the worship leadership from Luke MacDonald, Andi Rozier, Josh Buendorf and the entire Vertical Church Band worship and production teams. Praying for them as they rest up from an incredible victorious weekend!


Vertical Passion Week

April 17, 2014

What distinguishes Passion Week in a vertical church? 1: Passion Week is a week, not a day or a weekend. We give our people special materials and devotionals to work through personally. We give them music to listen to on their way to church. We are a church family and we love to remember and, …


Things to Think about During Holy Week

March 25, 2013

This is Holy Week. And with the outpouring of ministry that will accompany it among our churches, I want to take a few minutes to encourage my fellow pastors as we prepare for its significance. Visit TheDayJesusDied.com


The Gospel at Harvest Reaches New High Water Mark at Easter 2012

April 10, 2012

We are wanting to give God glory for the work He is doing in our church—taking us deeper and further into the joy of His gospel than ever before.   God forbid that I should boast, save in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ. —Galatians 6:14


Garden Tomb: He Arose Victorious

April 09, 2012

“He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying. Go quickly and tell His disciples that He has risen from the dead…” —Matthew 28:6-7 Jesus’ rising bodily from the grave changed everything.


Golgotha: He Suffered to the End

April 06, 2012

Following Christ to the Cross, we come to Golgotha—the place where He who knew no sin, became sin on our behalf. Here Jesus suffered more than anywhere else, and here He demonstrated His love to the very end.   It was now about the sixth hour, and there was darkness over the whole land


Via Dolorosa: He Suffered Willingly

April 05, 2012

As we continue following the footsteps of Christ, we’re in Jerusalem on the Via Dolorosa—the road of suffering. It is the road that Jesus walked, staggering toward the ultimate sacrifice with a heavy cross upon His torn and bloodied back. So often we try to refuse the trials


Caiaphas’s House: He Suffered Alone

April 04, 2012

We’re on the steps of Caiaphas’s house in Jerusalem—the courtyard of the high priest where the Savior was left alone to endure His trial. As you reflect on Christ’s suffering, remember that we’re following in His steps. If you’ve felt like those you love aren’t there for you, remind yourself that Jesus also suffered—alone.


Antonia Fortress: Christ’s Suffering Continues

April 03, 2012

Now Jesus stood before the governor. And the governor asked Him, saying, “Are You the King of the Jews?” Jesus said to him, “It is as you say.” —Matthew 27:11   Today we meet at Jerusalem’s Antonia Fortress—


Gethsemane: Are You Totally Surrendered to God?

April 02, 2012

This week is a week like no other, covering the space between the shouts of “Hosanna!” and waving palm branches of Christ’s entry into Jerusalem, and His journey to the Cross. Watch the clip below, then pray a prayer of surrender. Give to God whatever burdens you are carrying, in total submission to His will


It Was All in the Cup

April 21, 2011

Then Jesus went with them to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to his disciples, “Sit here, while I go over there and pray.” And taking with him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee, he began to be sorrowful and troubled. Matthew 26:36-37 The pain Jesus endured in the garden was more than …


Can’t Leave Easter Yet

April 05, 2010

“Can’t leave Easter yet. Almost 17,000 worshipers, the Gospel going out with power, and a lot of great singing like this . . .


He Is Risen!

April 01, 2010

Tomorrow we will take some time to remember the amazing sacrifice of Jesus Christ on the cross through some powerful, yet reflective services at our church. I trust that you will set some time aside do the same. Romans 5:8 says, “but God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, …
