Pennsylvania Youth Challenge in 12 Hours

A lot of what I do is outside of the realms of photography. I spend hours making sure things are running smoothly for those that lead out in different ministries. One of those ministries is the Pennsylvania Youth Challenge. It is comprised of a group of about 28 students who work during the summer as literature evangelists. They go door to door selling books and praying for those who need it. They work hard through the heat and after spending a day with them I can understand why prayer is so essential in their work. It's hard getting the door slammed in your face, even as someone watching from the road!

Jack's Dedication to God

Chris and I are privileged to have friends that are like family. The awesome thing about being a part of the family of God is that you literally feel like blood relatives. At least that is how I feel. Ha! Heather and Phil have been friends with us since before we got married and Saturday nights used to be our ritual hangout time before we moved.

REACH Columbia Union Urban Evangelism School

For the last several months I have been working amongst a group of young people doing something completely different than what they are, but still  getting to know them. Our church, where I work, holds a school called REACH Columbia Union Urban Evangelism School which is of a different entity but of the same mission and goal. These students come for a year to learn about urban evangelism and to gain a closer relationship with Jesus. They learn both in the classroom and out in the field.

PA Youth Challenge Baptism - Philadelphia, PA

A lot of what I do is for ministry. This past weekend I made sure to get some photos of these four girls being baptized. I am not sure about you, but when I look at these photos I am thankful for my faith. I am thankful for the joy that there is in Jesus. Despite our sin He makes us into amazing people. He grows us every day whether we know it or not. If there is someone who finds it hard to believe that God exists or that He truly brings joy into hearts, despite the evil destruction in the world, look at these faces. Look at what I have found. There I see Christ putting His signature over it all.

reMix in December - The Strand Theatre Clinton, MA

It has been over a year since I started photographing reMix and only 2 times I didn't take pictures. I have said it a million times, but this event has given me so many connections and also so many challenges in improving my work. You never know what you are going to get in the dark sometimes. Worship is something that we need to understand and appreciate. God has done so much for me and everyone that I cannot begin to reach the end of worshipping. I know I can complain about circumstances sometimes, but when I really stop to think of the big picture, God has blessed.

Church School Program

With the Christmas season comes many programs and musical moments. I had the pleasure of taking pictures for a little church school in Massachusetts  while Chris and I were up for the weekend. One thing about events that always give me a good challenge, is that I  never know what is going to happen next. With kids you have to move quick because they are moving machines and something unpredictable will always happen. Here are just a few shots from the program. They went for a modern twist on the Christmas story. It was adorable and I laughed quite often.
