I made six great friends. Being knee-deep in black mold has a way of bonding people! We are the Salerno Team! We traveled to help the Valiquettes and the Davidsons in Salerno, Italy. We painted, we cleaned, we constructed a stage, we disinfected, we ran cables, we swept, we sealed, we organized, we vacuumed and [...]

Why Family Night Matters To Me

by Pastor Curt on June 11, 2015
filed under , ,

This Sunday evening, June 14, at 5 PM, OGC will have its second Family Night Member’s Meeting. I wouldn’t dream of missing it. And not just because I’m one of the shepherds of the flock. I’m pretty certain I would make this a priority, if I were a “mere” regular sheep of the fold. Why? [...]

by Michael Graham on May 11, 2015

(Note: this post originally appeared on michaelsgraham.com) It is incredibly important to know not only what kind of leader you are but what kind of leader you thrive underneath. A fair amount of writing has gone into analyzing the Triperspectival leadership styles of prophets, priests and kings. You can read John Frame’s Doctrine of the Knowledge of God or Primer on [...]

Thanks to everyone who continues to pray for my bride as she works her healing regimen in the aftermath of ovarian cancer surgery four months ago. She had her second post-op visit yesterday with the doctor. She continues to heal quite nicely in terms of that procedure. For this we are certainly grateful. Her physician [...]

I received this today in my inbox from one of my favorite pro-life ministries. I urge all champions of life in our state to appeal to our governor to sign the bill sent to him by the legislature.

https://vimeo.com/35959845 We start a new round of Equipping Hour classes this Sunday. I’m excited about all four offerings. I get to teach another newcomers class.

Ride or Shove

by Pastor Curt on April 18, 2015
filed under , , ,

I read this today from Oswald Chamber’s Baffled to Fight Better: Job and the Problem of Suffering: The majority of us prefer to get up and ride rather than to “get out and shove.” It is only the people who “get out and shove” who really make things go. The men who are up against [...]

A Sorrowful But Always Rejoicing Conference

by Pastor Curt on April 15, 2015
filed under , , , ,

I’ve been to a lot of conferences in thirty plus years of pastoral ministry. Another one has gone into the books. I, along with the rest of the elders at OGC, just finished attending The Gospel Coalition’s 2015 National Conference. The theme was “Coming Home: New Heaven and New Earth.” We drank from a non-stop [...]
