Who are you?
I am a passionate God-seeking technology evangelist. Network geek by trade, photography enthusiast, Android fanboy, Oasis Church member, musician, dad and husband. Whew! I think that’s all :)

What makes you a Digital Disciple?
I think as Christians in general we have to represent Christ in all we do. I happen to live in the “digital” space so as a disciple of Him I have to represent where I live so that’s what makes me a “DD”.

What website or technology has impacted you most?
Probably my first Blackberry and Windows NT

How do you express your faith through technology?
I don’t know if you express your faith through the tech, but I think those who love God will work and express their passion in whatever area they love in a way that shows their love and faith in Christ.

Who are you?
I am a mobile evangelist, but in the respect of teaching and understanding the implications of the technology as it relates to our faith in Christ. I travel a good bit and enjoy a good meal and getting on my bicycle for a good spell. Beyond that, I experiment with mobile tech in all sorts of ways.

What makes you a Digital Disciple?
A disciple is a person set on learning and following someone else, I regard myself as one because of how I’m focused on following Christ, but not leaving the lesson with me. Each one teach one, and always pay it forward.

What website or technology has impacted you most?
The Palm Treo and the Nokia Mobile Server

How do you express your faith through technology?
Tech is a window to how I live. Its a tool that enables me to relate to others and see their world through their voice. In that, its not that the tech expresses the faith but points to how its being lived out.

Launch of new website

posted on January 1, 2011 under  Blog

After completing the 1 Photo Per Day commitment for the year of 2010, I kept asking myself what I needed to be more dedicated to in 2011. The Digital Disciples network has been around for around 18 months, but I’ve been the only roadblock to what God wants to do with / through it. So here we go!

I thought about just leaving our old / lame website alone and update friends about Digital Disciples through my personal blog more frequently, but I just felt that that wasn’t a big enough commitment. I know, without a shadow of a doubt, that God wants to begin a movement across the globe through this network…….so I’m dedicating myself to the network alone in 2011.

Every day I am going to let this site put the spotlight on what God is doing through another Digital Disciple that He lets me come in contact with. Initially we wanted to start our own “social network” on a small scale, but I don’t really see the point of that. I long for meeting new Digital Disciples and hearing what God is up to in their lives. If they somehow decide to either join / help create a monthly meetup in their city GREAT. But at least I can live another day in 2011 knowing that God has the freedom of speaking to us all through the lives of fellow Digital Disciples!

I’ll be sending out personal invitations to those I know are already interested in the movement / would probably want to be featured for a day here. If we haven’t met or I haven’t sent one to you yet, feel free to visit this link to submit your details to be featured. Oh yeah….be sure to join up with us on Facebook and Twitter.

Also be sure to subscribe to the blog (see right panel), since we’ll be starting to lay the foundation of the network these next few months. Our goal this week is to start listing the Daily Digital Disciple articles and to launch our weekly live chats on Thursday evenings at 9pm EST (LIVE link will be in menu above then). What do you think about this? Are you as pumped as I am?

Busyness

posted on December 11, 2010 under  Studies

I write this article in the busiest time of the year. Between Thanksgiving and Christmas. The time when the world requires the most of our attention, when really it’s the time when our focus should be most on Christ. Even the calendar on my iPhone can’t keep up with my schedule. The world confuses us the most during these months, asking us to sit at a table and be thankful one month, and days later they beg us to make purchases that do anything but make us thankful.

Luke 10:40-42
But Martha was distracted with much serving. And she went up to him and said, Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me to serve alone? Tell her then to help me. But the Lord answered her, Martha, Martha, you are anxious and troubled about many things, but one thing is necessary. Mary has chosen the good portion, which will not be taken away from her.
How does being busy impact your prayer life?

Which of these two women do you relate to the most? Are you more often like Martha, and too busy to notice opportunities you have to serve Christ where you are at?

Exodus 20:8-11
Remember the Sabbath day by keeping it holy. Six days you shall labor and do all your work, but the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your animals, nor the alien within your gates. For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day. Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy.

The “Sabbath” means literally to stop, to put an end to, to cease.  What feelings or thoughts are provoked when God tells you to STOP? Is it possible to pause within the schedule / routine of your living at the moment?

1 Timothy 6:9
But those who desire to be rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into many senseless and harmful desires that plunge people into ruin and destruction.

How large of a role does money play in your scheduling / rest? Are you or your family living a lifestyle that uses finances in a way that separates you from God? How are you utilizing your budget?

Proverbs 16:3
Commit your work to the Lord, and your plans will be established.

Psalm 90:17
Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us, and establish the work of our hands upon us; yes, establish the work of our hands!

Is the world really waiting to hear from you? Or is God doing doing the waiting? Is He trying to speak to you, and you just don’t realize it?
