Champion. What is a champion? (more…)

Being a student of film, I kinda look at what values do I get out of a “secular” film when it comes to showing the youth in our church. A film does not have to be “Christian” in order to have values. Here are five inputs I get from watching “The Intern”. (Spoiler alert. Read at your own risk!) (more…)

Youth Fellowship at TLCC every Friday at 6:00pm

What was the best meal you ever had? Usually, we think of the place, the company or the food we eat as we think of the best meal. My mother had a different idea. The best meal is something you eat when you are so hungry. Really…What’s your most memorable meal ever? (more…)

Reading through Exodus, we will encounter the idea of hardening of the heart. It’s not because of the food eaten but rather an intentional rejection of God. The question is…who hardened the heart, is it God or it is man? (more…)

Sync or Swim

SyncOrSwim

I’m excited.

For a few months now we were planning, discussing, talking and finally we’re going to do a youth camp. It’s not that easy to sell an idea. Investing in the youth meant not seeing immediate results, but you’d be able to see it five years from now, or ten years from now. I’ve seen a lot of lone ranger Christians, those who would do things on their own and then see them burn out or just simply fade away. It’s tragic. I’ve seen pastors try to study on their own and then struggle after years and years of solitude. It’s just sad. You see, we aren’t designed to do things alone. We are relational beings.

(Read Acts 2)

One of the main concerns we have is slow or stunted growth in the youth ministry. Looking back at the example of the early church, they were meeting regularly with one another and doing the “basic stuff”. With this in mind, we are reminded to Sync, from the word synchronize, which means “to be in harmony” or simply to do things together. While we can swim against the currents, it would be better to do things together, like the early church. Hence, this camp is a call to do things together, in prayer, in fellowship, in discipleship, in evangelism, in our devotions. The design for the entire camp is designed to build relationships with one another. It combines group dynamics with workshops as to intentionally push one another to sync with one another. (more…)

beginnings

Growing up in Sunday school, one of the verses we get to memorize is Genesis 1:1.

Later on, we tend to just get by with this verse and really not think about it. We know God is the creator, but we are challenged in our campuses regarding the reality of it. We know that God is eternal, but we have the question of “is there really life after death?” We know that God is present but still we could cheat in our exams as if He doesn’t see us do it. The hard part is really when theology meets reality. For theology is all in the head, but it is useless unless we get to practice it. (more…)

Acts 17:24-25
“The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth and does not live in temples built by human hands. And he is not served by human hands, as if he needed anything. Rather, he himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else.”
