Practice Makes Perfect

Read a post from our guest blogger, Katherine:

I’m sure most people have heard the common phrase “practice makes perfect.” This can be applied to learning a new language, mastering a theatrical production, or even ministering to people. All of these things may sound tricky if you have never experienced them, but with enough practice, you can become perfect at them (or at least better than you were before). I was able to get plenty of practice with all 3 of these things during my first missions trip to Nicaragua. Continue reading

This fall at my church, Charisma Church, we are starting an outreach children’s ministry.  To the untrained eye, this could seem like a normal thing that any church would consider doing.  So let me give you a little insight into the demographics of Charisma.  Our Sunday service is held on campus at NC State University.  We mainly have college students and young adults in attendance.  But here is the kicker: we currently have no children, and no children’s ministry.  So now you may be wondering why would we want to start an outreach children’s ministry.  The answer to that is simple.

You be the hands, I’ll be the feet

Ever since I was 11 years old, I have spent two weeks of my summer traveling to foreign countries and sharing the love of God with the people there. Each summer has been a vastly different experience as far as group dynamics go, but one thing has always stuck with me. I’m terrible at street evangelism. Especially in a language that I don’t speak. For many years, this was a frustration for me. I felt like I wasn’t contributing to the team, and that it was absolutely pointless for me to be going on these trips. Continue reading

I’m Eric Whitfield, and I don’t really know how to start blog entries, especially special guest blog entries. I know how to finish them though, and I’m even pretty good in the middle. At any rate, I’ve been a few different personalities while working on TV One Life. While all of them are super-fun, there is one personality that I’ve played that is especially dear to me, the Ninja. The Ninja is special to me for a couple of reasons. Continue reading

Oh snap I’m back!  That’s right there is no stopping me from infiltrating the blog with my random thoughts.  I hope you guys are enjoying season 4!  My favorite episode so far is the Israel one (mainly because that was the most incredible trip I’ve ever been on and it brings back so many amazing and powerful memories).  You might have noticed something a little different about season 4: I am not in the OLU segment.  I cried a little bit when I found out too.  But don’t worry, you will see me in other segments throughout the season.

Guest blogger: Stuntman!

Today’s guest post is from your friendly neighborhood Stuntman. Dun dun duuuuuuuuuuun.

Hey kids! Stuntman here!

I had so much fun doing all those stunts! I’m also glad I had all my friends there to help pad me up and keep me safe when the stunts didn’t go as I expected, which they never did. Like the Rocket Rollerblades. I was so excited for those, but then the rockets didn’t ignite. It was quite disappointing, but it was lots of fun anyways. I think I’ll have to try those again one day. The problem had to be with the way I tied all the engines together. I’ll have to do some more testing next time before go-time. Continue reading
