It’s A Boy!

#WeAreTeamHerron Grows to Six

In January, we received a notice at Life Church Michigan in the mail: Michigan is experiencing a shortage in the number of available families to adopt.  A week later, the same notice appeared in our home mailbox.  Being a family passionate about James 1:27, we prayed. And we took action: we began the infant adoption […]

My Response to Charlottesville

This is a photo of my daughter and me.  What happened in #Charlottesville is wicked and evil.  Racism and hate have no place in the hearts of God’s people. Listen up. Someone with the Twitter handle @JuliusGoat just dropped one of the best Twitter threads in history, about the white supremacist/Nazi march in Charlottesville. I’ve compiled all […]

How to Fear Less this Week

Everyone wrestles with fears.  Fears keep us up at night and consume our thoughts.  Uncertainty about the future can consume us.  But here’s the thing: most fears are learned.  In fact, infants are born with only two fears: fear of falling and fear of loud noises.  All other fears are learned. For God gave us a […]

Take the Risk: Five Years Ago Today I Wrote My Original Church Planting Proposal

Every entrepreneur will tell you that it takes years to become “an overnight success.”  Behind every thriving start-up is an original dream forged in sacrifices, tears, and empty bottles of Pepto-Bismol.

If You’re Being Criticized – Congrats! – You Are A Leader

"Let the name of George Whitefield perish so long as Christ is exalted."

Close friend to John Wesley and co-leader of the great revival of the 1700’s, George Whitefield had an ability to preach that drew tremendous crowds.  One sermon in London’s Hyde Park was attended by eighty thousand people.

My message from this past Sunday at Heritage Church

It was a privilege to speak at all five services this past Sunday at Heritage Church in Sterling Heights, Michigan (and via video to their Imlay City Campus). Our family attended Heritage Church for nearly a year in 2011-2012 as we were putting the pieces together for launching Life Church Michigan. I have a deep love […]

Announcing My New Book

Holy Shift releases nationwide this October

Comedy clubs are thriving while pews are sadly empty.  Although young adults are more spiritually-attuned than past generations, Millennials will rarely darken a church door. It doesn’t have to be this way.  Today’s church leaders need a Holy Shift. I am excited to announce that my new book will be releasing nationwide October 4th! Revealing the […]
