2.5 Years After Saddleback Cancels Youth Worship: Follow up Interview with Josh Griffin

Written by Jonathan on . Posted in Blog, Challenging, Ideas, Why Kids In Worship

Our first interview was 5 months after Saddleback started canceling youth worship once a month to have families worship together, appropriately called: Worship Together Weekend. As expected, everyone was excited about the change…at first….

In this second interview with Josh, we talk about the importance of kids in worship, what Saddleback has learned and how they have adjusted since starting Worship Together Weekends.

PS. My wife corrected me. Our boys were 3 and 5 years old…Not 5 and 7… 🙂 How time flies.

Bangkok Bound…Homes Devoted Going Global

Written by Jonathan on . Posted in Blog, Grandparents, Video Challenges

(Below is a transcript of video.)

In confirmation that the mission of Homes Devoted™ is God’s heart to minister to families and churches, the Lord has provided an opportunity I could not have even imagined: to serve pastors and ministry leaders at a GLOBAL summit in Thailand!!

Dr. Rob Rienow of Visionary Family Ministries (http://visionaryfam.com/) and Dr. Scott Turansky of the National Center for Biblical Parenting (http://visionaryfam.com/) serve on the global advisory team for a movement called the 4/14 Window (http://www.4to14window.com).  Scott Turansky serves as the chairman of the North America family ministry team and has personally asked me to represent the USA in facilitating the family ministry track of this summit with Pastor Matthew Ling of Malaysia!

This movement is stirring in the hearts of pastors all over the globe!  From traveling the east coast in May to now venturing to the other side of the planet, I am thrilled to endeavor in what God is doing!  I don’t know what doors God is going to open or the difference this is going to make for His Kingdom, I am just humbled and honored to be a part of what He is doing.

You too can participate in this mission to equip parents all over the world!  I need to raise support of $2,750 to fund the mission.  One thing is for sure: God is working, leading and guiding.  To donate towards His work, it is now even more convenient through our new online donation site.

Please be praying for us through all that God is doing; it is an honor and privilege to serve Him in this way!

This amazing mission, and the miracles surrounding, remind me of Ephesians 3:20: “Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us.”

So the next generation might know,

Jonathan
