Flourishing

There are few people who don’t want to be flourishing in all areas of their lives, yet our ability to be successful is often dependent upon where we place our trust and hope. When I was sixteen-years-old, I told God if He would allow me to sense His love for me, that I would follow Him each day of my …

Ministry Update with Joshua Sonoga

Matthew is a senior football player at Honeoye Falls-Lima (HF-L) and has just recently signed to play football with Brockport College in fall 2017.

From the Mountain – July 4, 1998

It all began when I received a text from Pastor Frank at 6 am one Sunday morning asking if I could fill in and share at an 8 am Fordham chapel service. Excited for the opportunity, …

This is an FCA Huddle – University of Maine

When a young man came to our University of Maine FCA huddle towards the end of last year, he was very honest with me in where he was in his faith. He wasn’t sure what or who he believed in. I remember telling him we are all in different stages of our faith journey and he was very welcome at …

Warning

Navigating the ups and downs of a sports season will always be a challenge no matter how much experience a coach has. The beginning of the season is filled with excitement, anticipation, hard work and build up towards that first game that just always seems so out of reach. But once the season gets started, it’s amazing how quickly it …
