Mentors: Andy Benton

February 20, 2012 — 5 Comments

When I was a freshman at Pepperdine University, my roommate and I were invited to attend a bible study on Sunday nights at the president’s home on campus. It was on those nights, in that invitation-only crowd of students I learned some life-lessons from a man-of-God. Andy Benton was one of my mentors and in this video, you can see why… he’s a man of prayer.

Thank you Andy for investing in students like me.

This post is a part of a series of posts on my life mentors.

Tripp and Tyler are at it again.
They released a new video tonight.
Enjoy.

Need a Laugh?

January 10, 2012 — Leave a comment

Sometimes you just need to laugh.

Flula is a funny internet (youtube) star, hype man, dj and German who lives in SoCal.
He produces hilarious videos on youtube all the time.
From time-to-time we choose a funny video from Flula and show it in our pre-service countdown at church, or in our student ministry environment.
Whenever we do that, we tell him about it via twitter and he gets a big kick out of his videos being “in church.”

Yesterday I checked our student ministry twitter account (@insideoutnvc) and noticed he’d sent us a video.

(Previous post about Fula’s video he made for me, personally.)

Josiah’s Sister

What Josiah said when we told him he’s getting a little sister.

When we ask him what her name should be he says, “I hug her and kiss her.”
That name is too long.
What should her name be?

Merry Christmas from New Vintage Church and Rhianna.

We fund Love in a hopeless place.
A baby, the king, Jesus, has been born.
Hope has entered this darkness.
He is the Christ, the Lord, Jesus. Amen.

Serving Santa Rosa

December 12, 2011 — Leave a comment

Two Saturdays ago, my community group served at a thrift store run by the Gospel Redwood Mission here in Santa Rosa, Ca.
We did yard work, cleaning, moved furniture, separated clothes and rewired a weed-wacker.



One of the couples from our group brought their daughter Emily.
She found a leather jacket and showed us her Michael Jackson moves.

When’s the last time you served?
What did you do?

Boo Ja from DJ Flula

A couple of weeks ago I click on a link from someone I follow on twitter which lead me to a goldmine of funny videos produced by a german guy named Flula. If you haven’t watched any of this videos, here’s one we’ve shown in our pre-service “10B4” videos at New Vintage Church:

After we showed this video, I tweeted at him and let him know we used it. He commented back and we’ve talked back and forth a few times. I get the impression he’s never had a positive relationship with a church before. The other day I checked my twitter feed and a reply with a link was in my feed from Flula. Here’s what he was sharing with me:

Flula, thanks again for entertaining me.
