As the pastor and founder of River Rock Church I want to help people help others live WELL Lives: Worship, Encourage, Learn and Love.

There is a lot of good insight into being a Christian athlete and a Christian minister that seeks to encourage and serve those near us.
This is an amazing series of pictures. Some times things keep going south but persistence eventually saves the day (or the car) I

The interesting article above illustrates beer and tequila talking inside your body. The Bible does not say it is a sin to drink any alcohol but it does say it sinful to get drunk. The wise words given to us by the God who created us also warn us about drinking.
Here are some pictures I took this summer as I rode my bike around Belle Plaine, MN and the surrounding area. I rode my bicycle over 1,000 miles during the summer of 2013 – every now and then I would stop and take a picture with my camera phone.

This shocking info graphic states what appear to be obvious: there are a lot of people that won’t read. They are spoon fed information on the TV and watch plots unfold at the movies. They watch life revealed on youtube videos and prefer to get their news by short articles and Tweets with 140 maximum characters.
Grandparents have a special opportunity to encourage, equip and inspire their grandchildren to follow Jesus. In when I was little my dad got married and I stayed with my new step-mom’s parents. I was their […]

It is exciting to think of those who have been and who are now sharing Jesus with others who have not heard around the world.
Christian and Missionary Alliance Missions seeks to spread the message and power of Jesus throughout the world where many others won’t go.

The discussion is so much more effective when they come prepared but you can never expect that when Bible study is new to them.
