What God Has Joined Together, Let Nothing Separate

Here is a sermon I preached at North Side’s 2016 Marriage Conference. In this intro session, we look at Malachi 2 and seek to divorce-proof a marriage by looking at the steps that drive us away from our spouse.

Racism and the Gospel

On January 27, 2016, I preached at North Greenville University’s chapel on the topic of “Racism and the Gospel.” I think it struck a nerve that needed to be struck.  I had some incredible conversations with students and faculty since then.  Pray that maybe this will cause you to think about what the Bible has …


Dysfunctional Family

Series: The Gathering 2015 // Scripture: Luke 6:46-49 & Colossians 3:12-21 Do you ever feel that your family isn’t perfect?

We’re Not There Yet

This sermon was recorded at the Gathering at North Side Baptist Church on October 6, 2015.

Why Do Bad Things Happen to Good People?

The Word

The Bible is not a collection of individual stories and treasured sayings.  It is the one overarching narrative of how Jesus is reconciling a people unto himself.

The Family

Many people say that one’s family is the most difficult group of people to impact for Christ. Throughout the pages of Scripture, we see a different dynamic as God used family members time and time again to evangelize and disciple other family members. In this last message of our “Between Sundays” series, we focused on …
