Now What?

The Bridge Street Mission School (BSMS) class of 2015-16 graduated on April 28, 2016 and moved out shortly thereafter. Eight months of intentional community, fervent prayer, urban ministry, and Biblical teaching are over. Now what? you ask. Well, let me tell you what I think. First off, BSMS was incredible. I couldn’t have asked for…

BSMS Update!!

Wow, it’s been a while since I last posted! A ton has happened. Let’s see if I can remember it all. From November 15-21 we were in Colorado Springs, Colorado. We took a 15-passenger van rode-trip out to visit the YWAM base there and learn about what YWAM is. We joined them for their teaching…

A Month In

Well, it has been almost a month since Bridge Street Mission School (BSMS) started. I can’t believe that’s all it’s been because if feels more like a couple years with these weirdos.

I Apologize

You’ve seen the picture. It’s a table with four chairs, but one chair has fallen over. The caption says, “2015 Michigan earthquake. We will rebuild.” I, possibly like you, was scrolling through my Facebook newsfeed shortly after the 4.2 magnitude earthquake on Saturday. And as I was scrolling, I saw the picture I just described. When I…

An End (??) To An Amazing Run

TEC (Teens Encountering Christ) means a lot to me. Ever since I was a candidate at TEC #58 in the fall of 2014, I’ve loved it. I wanted go come back and work ASAP. Because of my awesome STL (Student Table Leader), Miah Grassmid, I applied and was blessed to be a STL at TEC…

Never-Changing God

I get this feeling every year about this time. I’m sure you do to. It’s the warmer temperatures. The sun shining down. The snow melting. Being able to roll down the car window without an arctic blast hitting me in the face. Hearing birds chirping outside.  In short, it’s spring. Every time I experience the…
