Couple of times a year I get the chance to teach in our “main service” at journey. It’s always hard to find the time to do it with all the other ministry stuff going on and the extra prep it requires, but it is something I enjoy doing for several reasons:

  1. I just enjoy it.
  2. It helps student ministries to have a voice in the “big church”.
  3. If I don’t tank it, it increases confidence that our ministry is worth sending a student to.
  4. It stretches me.

Anyway, last Sunday was the last time I got to take my turn at bat in the main service and without any commentary on it, here’s the link if you wanna give it a listen… but you’ll need some imagination and some time, cuz the visuals from the message will not be there and well… I opened my trap for 48 minutes.

Here’s the link if you got an hour to kill.


  1. Vanessa says:

    It was a great message Brian & you delivered it well. Convicting & inspiring. I love your use of props & how honest you are about your own struggles. Thank you for sharing your story with us.

  2. I really liked it! Me, Spencer, and Trent sat against the wall in the back to listen to what we could of the 2nd service message. (after worship in Encounter)

    so just letting you know your students care and wanna be there to support you.

  3. I feel ya on all four of those reasons!
