Jeremiah, blunt as ever, shared the hard truth with his world while speaking to ours. Mine even. "Stupid fools," he said (Jer10.8). They had made some really great idols, objects around which their lives rotated. It was a silly thing, worshiping statues of wood, dressed up with gold, silver, paper. Yet, the people were hopeful. Hopeful that statues would walk, shape the hi...Keep Reading

“...the harvest is plentiful but the workers are few,” Matthew 9:37 (NIV). This verse is one of the most memorable in the Bible for me, but what does it mean to you? Recently, our newly formed White Oak community got a chance to live out this verse by performing a simple act of kindness to a community in need in our very first scatter time....
Have you ever wondered who the Elders are at The Well? Check out the next part in our Meet the Elders series to get to know another leader in our church. This week… Meet Stephan. Stephan is an Elder on the Directional Team. We asked him a couple questions to help you get to know him a little better....
There's something sweet about rhythm. Through your prayers and the resultant work of God, our bossa nova of life is swaying side to side like we're listening to the sultry sound of Gilberto's Girl From Ipanema. A friend said it and we're living it: the high highs, and low lows of church planting. Things are swinging high this week. A scratchy phonograph stylus settles abr...Keep Reading
It's Wednesday. Mid week. Lots has happened, for you and me. Monday and Tuesday dominoes have toppled, so Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will fall if you want them to or not. Things set in motion tend to stay in motion, unless acted upon by an outside force, and the coming few days of this week have been set in motion. Appointments are set, calendars packed, every hour acc...Keep Reading
Imagine how much planning went into that magnanimous intersection between the Son of man and all of humanity. I bet the Father, Son and Spirit bubbled with excitement waiting to unfold the tangible steps of a perfect plan to rescue an imperfect world full of imperfect people. All of eternity culminated in that humble moment when Mary brought forth Jesus to a motley crew of...Keep Reading
Sometimes things go as planned sometimes not. I need your help to sell our house in Dallas. Can you loan some nice furniture to the cause? We need to stage thee areas, and if you have any furniture that may help that would be awesome! The house is more of a modern look, so if your furniture fits that decor, even better!

Like a mixed metaphor we're miners squeezing out of a wave's pipeline before the tube falls over us. Our eyes are still adjusting to the light, but we're climbing out of boxes into our house and back into life, soaking wet. There's an end to our move, transition is coming to a close. Though dizzy from the continual change, we're loving it! God is showing up all over the ca...Keep Reading
I think I'm in control. You probably think you are too. Some signs? You may feel anxious, or angry. Maybe like me, you feel both, topped with strife. You know what we don't feel: joy. Anxiousness, anger, striving. You and I can expect them when we stand at the precipice of a situation we think we need to conquer, our backs to all of the other obstacles we've already contr...Keep Reading
Silver Spring here we come! Hopefully. We found a place to rent in Woodmoor, in the heart the community. Our application is in and we are waiting for the green light. As the disciples stood with the resurrected Christ, watching him ascend into the heavens, His words must have marked their geographic maps with what lay around the corner. From Jerusalem, to Judea and Samaria...Keep Reading
Two days after unloading our lives into a friend's basement we took off for family vacation! Utilizing man to man coverage ten adults managed to corral nine kids safely from beach to pool to dinner and back again. It was a blast, and far from relaxing. As the week closed, for the first time in 7yrs, we didn't hop back on a plan and head home. Settling in over the next mon...Keep Reading
We're here! As Matt and I close our time sitting in a bumpy Penske, traveling over 1,000 miles in two 14 hour days, God is beginning a work in me. I know I should be excited. Filled with anticipation. Yet, as we plod through the remaining 30 miles, it hit me. This move is no longer surreal, but real. I'm not feeling so happy about the giant leap across the country from my ...Keep Reading
