In Tulsa Speaking at Guts Church…

I just wanted to give you an update on my weekend, which will not end until late tonight. I am presently in Tulsa, Oklahoma at Guts Church with Pastors Bill and Sandy Scheer. I am blown away by this cutting edge church and their awesome leaders. Bill and Sandy have done a great job raising up the next generation of leaders to equip, empower, and release them into all that God has destined them to be. The various ministry outreaches that they have around the city and state is staggering. It has really touched my heart to see the way they are reaching in to the public school system to build relationships and love people right where they are. There is way too much judgment in the church as a whole, and we have got to learn to love people where they are the same way that Jesus did. Jesus never lowered the standard of His Heavenly Father, yet He always reached down and lifted people up – never condemning, but always loving. Remember that James 2:13 clearly tells us that mercy triumphs over judgment…ALWAYS!!!

On another note, I wanted to share the good news that many people responded to the altar call in all three services yesterday to come to Christ. It was so cool to see how hungry people are for what is real and true, especially the younger generation under the age of 30.

Tonight we are having a God chicks' night. Please pray for a great outpouring of God’s compassion and mercy, love and forgiveness. We are believing for great breakthrough in the lives of those who are desperate and hurting. This meeting will be for all girls ages 13 and up. It is so cool to see generations coming together for the same reason with no generation gap! God is good! For more information about Guts Church or tonight’s event, check out
