Jason & the THRiVE Team-

Thanks and THRiVE

Thanks for all the wonderful gifts for our baby girl Ana Claire! Sarah has already put all the items up in her room.

We are so pumped about Jesus changing hearts and calling us to lives lives for Him! Here is some news for you from the THRiVE team…

1. Singer/Songwriter Coffee House tonight. Come and relax, we will have lots of food, coffee(obviously), probably something chocolate(legal college drug), fruit, yada yada yada. If you wanna sing/play a song just text me at 828.736.3586 or message me back on facebook. We have about a half dozen ready to sing, and I am going to read a poem of course!

2. WebsterTran will be behind the UC at 8:05pm. If you are going to ride it text me at the number above and let me know how many are in your group. We have another van that we can bring if there are 22 of you again like the other week(i am sure that was fun…cough cough).

3. Ask Jeff Pate his most embarrassing moment? It is well worth the 2 minutes it takes him to share it. haha.

4. SUPER-MAN Luncheon in one week on SuperBowl sunday from 12:45pm till about 3pm. We will have a ton of food and will have a few sessions on being a “Biblical Man”. I made an event on facebook and accidentally invited all the ladies, so please disregard, we will have something great for you ladies soon enough!

5. BSU is having a SUPERBOWL PARTY that night. They have invited all campus ministries and any students at WCU or SCC. Tons of food and fun, no THRiVE that night. We will resume back on FEB. 8 @ 8:30pm with THRiVE College&Career in the Fellowship Hall. We have some great stuff coming up in February and March that you won’t want to miss.

6. Continue to really get down and pray for JESUS to be number 1 in our lives. Pray that drunks, hypocrites, liars, gossips, homosexuals, abusers, addicts, and everything in between that we try to be, other than children of God, would repent of sin, follow Christ, and live and speak the Gospel of Jesus in this world!

Jason and the THRiVE Team!

Atheism

So I just want to say thanks to all the Atheist who have responded to my requests to speak with them about their beliefs. It has been very helpful in understanding where the “church” is going wrong in how we are handling the Gospel of Jesus.

Today is a hard day. A day of decisions. A day of making choices that will last a long time to come. I am so grateful for all the people in my life who have led me to a closer relationship with Christ. It would be so wonderful to be able to look each of you in the eyes and tell you how much your lives have impacted me.

THRiVE College & Career went great Sunday night. Jesus was lifted high, and we were humbled by what “grace” really is…”GOD AT WORK”. It is so nice to know that we are saved by grace, so that none of us can get all big headed!

#1 Blog…What have I gotten myself into…

In the beginning, I became a blogger.  For no real reason.  Not to be famous.  No to be read by millions.  Just to release thoughts on life, Jesus, death, and everything in between, so i can look back one day and remember what has happened.

Today I am counting down the days that I have until my first daughter Anastasia Claire comes into the world.  I am told that i will never sleep again.  Since I dont sleep much now I figure she will be a wonderful person to visit with when I am awake in the middle of the night!  Sarah is beautiful as a pregnant woman.  I think we will have more just so I can see her where giant shirts that just happen to be orange, and think of pumkins in January.

Different Subject.  Mistakes.  Think about that word for a minute.   Just think…

Here is a little video I made when I was 24 and seeking where God would have me in Worship Ministry
