A Prayer for Your Students

A Prayer for Your Students

And My prayer for you One of the first summers that I was on staff here at Arrowhead, I took the staff through the book of Colossians. We didn’t get very far into the book before it started making a huge impact. The beginning of Paul’s prayer (Col. 1:9-10) thundered off the page at me. […]

My Field of Dreams I love the game of baseball. In fact, one of my earliest memories is of my dad taking my brother and I to see a Phillies game at Veteran’s Stadium in Philadelphia. It was one of the best days of my life. Like many young boys that day I had my […]

6 Image Sites Better Than Google

6 Image Sites Better Than Google

When it comes to finding images for our youth ministry media, we all know Google Image Search. We all love Google Image Search (GIS), but when you learn to live by it, you’ll likely die by it, too. The problem with GIS is that everyone uses it. You do a search for “prayer” and find […]
