Spiritual warfare is a thing?

Christian, have you ever wondered what spiritual warfare actually looks like? Is it as intense as it sounds? Did it just take place during the days of the Bible, or does it happen now? Is it more obvious, or more subtle? It doesn’t seem to be talked about too much these days. So, let’s talkContinue reading “Spiritual warfare is a thing?”

VIDEO – Life is Good When You’re Hated

Vintage Church Sunday Worship Gathering: In this Sunday message, I preach from Matthew 5:10-12 about what Jesus teaches about perseverance during hate and persecution.

This conversation is really funny, but also very serious at times.Continue reading “PODCAST – “I’m a pastor, but a person too.””
