  • When God is Bigger Than Our Expectations

    November 21, 2017

    A few weeks back I went up north on a solo expedition to Traverse City and the Sleeping Bear Dunes. I really had been looking forward to reading, journaling, and drinking good coffee all while enjoying God’s beautiful creation. Throughout the weekend I learned a lot about my expectations of God’s will. My first time […]

  • Created with Imago Dei

    November 13, 2017

    So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. -Genesis 1:27 A lot has been on my mind recently as my wife and I have prepared our home and our hearts for our first born (a son). By the time that you read […]

  • Can Preschoolers Really Worship?

    October 30, 2017

    Have you ever found yourself wondering that very question? I’ve been on staff serving in the Early Childhood Coordinator role for eight months now. Certainly, it has crossed my mind as I’ve spent countless hours prepping for lessons, do these activities really matter? Are these 3’s, 4’s and Young Fives really getting something from this […]

  • Narrow View of New

    October 29, 2017

    So, I have to confess something to you – this was not the plan. But plans change, right? You wrestle in prayer and through the process of discerning the still small voice that seems to get louder and louder until you are beyond compelled to respond, and then you jump! But you don’t land at […]

  • Celebrating The Wins

    October 25, 2017

    Everybody likes to win. Celebrate the wins. Nothing will shape the culture of the organization you lead quite like celebrating the right thing. It was over 20 years ago that I listened to a leader I highly respect state the previous sentences so many times that they stuck. So, what is happening that is worth […]

  • Grateful

    October 18, 2017

    As I sit to write this post, I have a couple things running through my mind. First, I’m writing this shortly after my one year working anniversary here at Fair Haven. Second, I’m looking forward to bringing my family to Fall Fest this week, an event we host at Fair Haven for our community where […]

  • Be Curious

    October 10, 2017

    I never thought that at age 26, with an endless variety of movies, shows, and entertainment at my fingertips because of the internet, that I would end up watching so much of the show Curious George. And yet, here I am. I currently rent a room from the VanderKlock family in West Olive. Kevin is […]

  • Our Global Impact

    October 2, 2017

    Fair Haven has a mission offering goal of $250,000 toward our shared One Mission fund with Harbor Churches. The first of five mission offerings is this Sunday, October 8! It is an exciting opportunity for each of us to give toward some amazing things. But before I continue, let me rewind… When I came on […]

  • Gratitude

    September 26, 2017

    Fall is upon us which means a lot of different things for various people groups. It’s back to school for kids, which is a celebration for some parents and bittersweet for others. It’s getting back into some regular rhythms and routines for families after a summer of late nights. Fall sports and all the fun […]

  • Who Is God?

    September 20, 2017

    Who is God? Without question that is the most important question we will ever answer. A.W. Tozer said, “We tend by a secret law of the soul to move toward our mental image of God. . . Were we able to extract from any man a complete answer to the question, ‘What comes to mind […]
