Hello, I'm David!
My Twitter Feed
In the past few months, I’ve been honored to share on a few of my friends’ platforms with my insights on leadership and evangelism! I’d love for you guys to check them out!
The first is my friend, Joseph Lalonde. Joseph is an author, blogger and podcaster. He has a great blog on leadership and an amazing podcast called Answers from Leadership. My personal favorite episode is episode #23 (kidding…kinda). Not too long ago, Joseph put together an expert roundup on the Healthy Habits of Successful Leaders. Some of the experts include Michael Hyatt, Pat Flynn, Kevin Miller…and me….and others! Please check out the roundup and let me know in the comments below which one or two habits you’ll be implementing in your life!
The second is my friend, Katie Fleming and her parents, Mr. & Mrs. Pearson with The Goodsetters Podcast! This podcast is all about getting good stuff done, in every facet of life! In this podcast episode, I share a few stories from my experiences in evangelism and give some tips on how to share the Gospel effectively. I had a lot of fun being on this podcast and I hope it encourages you as you go out to share your faith in Christ! Check out this podcast and let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
Welcome to the VERY FIRST Ask David, episode #001 – How to deal with fear, worry, and impatience.
Would love your feedback! What verses have encouraged you regarding fear and worry? Leave a comment below and let me know how you deal with and battle fear!
WHAT HAPPENED IN PARKLAND, FL was absolutely devastating! The terrible incident on Valentines Day left me with some very hard questions (as it did for many of us), but it also left me with some questions of our impact as the church! I sat on these questions and a very honest gut-check for a few days before recording this video on February 20, 2018 (the day before Billy Graham passed away.) Ever after recording, I sat on this for a few more days before posting. The reason I did that was due to the fact that what I share in this video may come off as harsh or critical, but I believe it needs to be both said and heard. These questions require an answer and a response from the church. Here’s how I think the church needs to respond moving forward for us make the impact we’ve been called to make!
Please note, this is raw and honest…and may offend some people.
This March will mark my 11th year in full-time, vocational ministry. In 11 years, I’ve picked up on a few things. I’ve noticed that Christians tend to have predictable, cyclical behavior. For example, many Christians start the new year with two things:
- A Daniel fast
- A “Read the Entire Bible in a Year” reading plan.
Nothing gets you to “turn the page” quite like a new year! A new year, new goals, and….a new catchphrase?
When the new year rolls around, a handful of church leaders feel the need to make declarations on what God is saying for the new year (as if it might differ from a month ago) and it usually sounds like this:
- “2004, the year of more!”
- “2006, God is gonna fix….what was broken last year.”
- “2007, seven is the number of completion….God is going to complete some things in your life!”
- “2010, get ready to see God’s hand!”
- “2014….2+0+1+4 = 7 = Seven is the number of completion…God is going to complete some things in your life!”
