Gloriouse Weekend

This weekend was marked by glory…the glory of God!

We had an amazing time Friday night worshiping the King of kings in the Upper Room…then we moved out to the front yard to put the love of God on a city that so desperately needs it…hamburgers of love. 

Saturday was an all day conference on the topic of Inheritance led by Jacob Reeve at our home…tons of worship, fellowship, teaching, and encountering God!

And then Sunday we moved back to the church building on our street. The King was glorified and the IVC family was encouraged…a sweet time of ministry broke out at the end (picture # 3)

Here are a few pictures from the weekend, I should have taken more.

Baptisms in 2011-2012

It’s an honor to be able to baptize people in the name of the Father, the Son, & the Holy Spirit…I can’t wait for our first baptism this year, hopefully sooner than later!

Here is a video of a baptism that I participated in last year…the glory of God is clearly seen through these lives that joyfully entered the waters of life declaring that their old life is gone and their new life in Christ is here!

“Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might walk in newness of life. ” (Rom 6:4)

IVC Leadership






This last Saturday we had an all day family leadership meeting for IVC in Summerland…we spent the day playing, talking, eating, encouraging one another, and getting on the same page for the year…I am beyond honored to be doing life together and leading His church in IV with these incredible men and women of God! We are so stoked for this next year in IV and all the amazing things King Jesus is going to do!

Jesus Burgers


If you’re faithful to the ministry of Jesus Burgers you are grateful for the summer…a time of rest, recovery, and renewed strength for the following year. This year we are moving the ministry to Friday nights, which is traditionally a little bit bigger of a party night. Same setup: worship and prayer beforehand (Upper Room) in the prayer shed, then transitioning around 10ish to the front yard, and then begin serving the JB’s closer to 11pm and going till late!

Please be praying for the ministry and the harvest that God wants to bring in from the streets of IV…we are back on in about a month, crazy!

God is good, beyond thankful that God has kept this ministry going for 10yrs now…He is faithful to His work in this city!

“Behold, the Lord has proclaimed to the end of the earth, say to the daughter of Zion, ‘Lo, your salvation comes; behold His reward is with Him, and His recompense before Him.’ And they will call them, ‘The holy people, The redeemed of the Lord’; And you will be called, ‘Sought out, a city not forsaken.'” (Isaiah 62:11-12)

“Not to us, LORD, not to us but to your name be the glory, ” (Psalm 115:1)

Kids Are a Gift From the Lord

“Children are a gift from the Lord; they are a reward from him. Children born to a young man are like arrows in a warrior’s hands. How joyful is the man whose quiver is full of them! He will not be put to shame when he confronts his accusers at the city gates.” (Pslam 127: 3-5)
