Compassion International exists to rescue children from poverty in Jesus’ name. I love what they do for kids growing up in poverty. I also love what happens in the lives of sponsors who support those kids. Involving Compassion in what I do means seeing both of the above things happen. It also means that Compassion will help to cover my expenses.
uestions about how to sell what you create have taken a back seat to questions like…
- What do you want your work to accomplish?
- How do you set realistic and yet challenging goals?
- What do you do when you don’t reach those goals.
- How do you define “success” beyond sales numbers?
You are loved and valued by God because you are God’s. You are not what you make or achieve and you should not be judged by your level of productivity. The Sabbath is a gift and a practice that frees us from the anxiety of proving ourselves, letting us give the best of who we are to our world and the ones we love.
Justin is a captivating communicator who is able to reach the hearts of all ages. His whimsical and enthusiastic approach to story telling with a point makes you wish church was more than 1 hour. Justin has an ability to teach from experience and wisdom in a very authentic and passionate way that he conjoins with performing his own music which offers an experience more than simply a sermon. Our young adults at The Bridge at Real Life Church were tremendously blessed by Justin’s message and performance. We will definitely be having Justin back in the near future!David Wilson, College/Young Adult Pastor, Real Life Church in Valencia CA
Justin has opened my eyes to how I can live my life for Christ, like Christ, and with Christ. Specifically, he reminded me how God doesn’t expect me to do devotions, Sabbath, prayer, and mission faultlessly. God calls us to enjoy our relationship with him through his Son, and to believe in the “good news” of the Gospel! These lessons gave my soul and heart such freedom, and I was reminded again of how good our Father is and that He continually showers me with grace.College Student
From the moment Justin introduced himself and began sharing his story, I saw a leader who was here to serve us, intentionally discover who we were as individuals, and walk with Christ through an interactive learning environment. Throughout this week Justin incorporated a unique way of teaching through a story centered approach and used worship sessions as a transition into the next lesson. Justin brought a new and refreshing energy to the classroom atmosphere, one that compelled us all to lean into the words he spoke.College Student
What I love most about Justin’s ministry is that he is passionate and genuine. You walk away being inspired and energized to love God and love others, but in a very authentic way. Students are not necessary challenged to “take up a cause” or change the world, they are invited to consider the Gospel of grace and transformation and then to ask how God might be stirring them to action.Derek Melleby, Executive Director, OneLife Institute; author, Make College Count: A Faithful Guide to Life and Learning
