Are You A Vanguard?

2020-06-03T18:28:01+00:00

The word vanguard has a very interesting history with amazing applications for those leaders who are serious about being cultural change-agents. Vanguard comes from the word avant-garde, a 15th century French military term. During this time in history, battle formations were commonly divided into three guards – the van, the middle and the rear. The Van was the advance guard, the front of a forward-moving fighting force. These were strong warriors with bodies scarred by multiple battles and mindsets hardened to the task in front of them. They were unwavering. Their purpose was two-fold: – Find and destroy the enemy – [...]

Building Better Bridges Between The Generations

2020-05-30T19:24:13+00:00

We’re at a pivotal place in history. God has given us the tools we need for kingdom building, He’s stepped in to create a reset in our nation after decades of the enemy rewriting our moral, social and cultural constructs. All of this is exciting, but it has also exposed a lack of unity between races, genders and generations, both in society and within the church. If we are going to create lasting change, this is something that must be addressed, because building His kingdom is going to take a multi-generational effort.  Abraham was given a promise, but it took four [...]

This weekend I had the privilege of speaking about social entrepreneurship at the Kingdom Business Summit in Dallas.

Over lunch, one of the speakers at the event made the point that it seems like God is ready to do some new and exciting things, but the people seem to be waiting for permission. I’ve been thinking a lot about what he said: God has [...]

The Reasonable Man

2020-05-30T19:07:03+00:00

The reasonable man takes the sure road in life. He understands the way the world works and clicks off the boxes he needs to in order to succeed in life.

And he feels good about the fact that he sees it. He may even be so bold as to share a controversial meme on Facebook, just so people know he is serious. The reasonable woman looks at her childhood dreams of [...]
