Articles at "The House"

Phil Jackson’s “The House Covenant Church” (thachurch.org) has several articles hosted on their articles and audio page. Article titles include “Truth In Your Grill!”, “How To Hang Up On a Booty Call”, and “How To Get Along With Your Parents Without Going Crazy.” The great thing about these articles is that they look to be […]


Salvation Army doing a new thing

The Salvation Army has a new music site for their youth (although not exclusive to Salvation Army youth), and it’s promoting new music by young artists, songwriters, poets. I think this opens up to doors to hear talented inspired rappers, spoken word artists, poets, punk bands, R&B groups, pop groups, and others who want to […]

Sweet Dating Skills

I love Napoleon Dynamite. I saw it and saw it again and laughed and laughed. Now this was a few years ago.. when it came out and was far more relevant. Just today, I ran across a “dating” series from globalyouthministry.org using references to the characters from ND and it’s kind of Kara Powell’s Good […]

Larry speaks Beyond Materialism

Larry Acosta spoke at the Newsong Church in Tustin, CA during a pop culture series entitled “iPop” and the recorded message is available from the UYWI website. It’s a 80MB Quicktime file ready to be downloaded and played on your computer or your iPod. It took me about 7 minutes to download it on a […]

He was born with a heart condition and has his first surgery this Thursday at 7am PST(tomorrow!). Please pray […]

Having the End in Mind

I ran across a pretty decent article on discipleship by Lacrae (who is slated to perform at UYWI07) on the Reach Records website. Apparently it’s dated too because the article is almost a year old, but it was new to me. It was encouraging and I think it’s a good read if you’d like some […]
