I have really neglected this website. I haven’t been super busy, just focusing on other things. Here’s what we’ve been doing in urban children’s ministry during the last three months:



We had two major snowstorms, getting something like 20″ one week and then another 15″ inches the next week. There was heaps of snow around Camden and the streets were extremely difficult to drive upon. We had several dozen snow fights and used a snow mound as a ski slope. I found some sleds in the basement and the kids had fun sledding!

We had our annual Martin Luther King Jr speech competition. Kids in 3rd-9th grade wrote speeches about civil rights leaders that they admired. Staff members coach the kids and help them with their speeches. I coached three boys and two of them earned 1st and 2nd place! I was shocked my third boy didn’t get a place (he’s the one in the picture with his hands extended as if to say “Oh well!”). It was fun and the kids wrote some hilarious and slightly offensive things. 🙂

My staff and I had a sleepover on campus. Well, it was more of an all nighter since we didn’t go to sleep until 5am. We played an almost two hour game of hide and seek that was hilarious. Great time of bonding with my high school staff!


Five of my kids went with the president of our ministry to speak at a church. I was really proud of them. Future leaders of America!
