  Jesus is Lord—over all of life! Unfortunately, many Christians fail to consider the implications of Jesus' lordship over anything other than their church life. This is particularly true when it comes to a person's educational and career choices. David Kinnaman, in his recent book You Lost Me, explains some startling...
As I mentioned in my previous blog, I am excited to be starting a new program in South LA for training cross-cultural church planters. In this post I want to dive in to what the program is going to look like. My heart as a pastor is to walk in...
I recently announced that I will be leading an internship program through my church, Cornerstone South LA. We call it The Apprenticeship, and it’s designed to train cross-cultural church planters. This is something that has been in my mind for quite a long time, and I’m excited to see...
To this point, the books we’ve recommended as our book of the “month” have been popular level books—books that the average reader can get through without too much difficulty. This “month,” I’m recommending a book that will require more effort from the average reader, but I think it’s worth...

I’ll never forget back in seminary overhearing a fellow student say, “Wow, he’s not a pastor for a reason.” It took me second to figure out what he meant. But after listening to the same dry, monotone, impractical and irrelevant lecture read off the pages of 20 year old...
Eternity Bible College is not your typical college. It’s not even your typical Bible College. It’s a place where students come—according to our mission statement—“to live and die well.” There are several things that make Eternity unique. Most people who are familiar with us know that we offer courses at...
In honor of the launch of our Fall semester, I’m going to explore an interesting phenomenon: plagiarism. Few will be surprised to learn the truth. Christian students plagiarize, whether they attend public or private colleges, secular or Christian universities. I find the psychology behind the urge to cheat fascinating, but...
