Some of you have asked about Hazak 2016, so I wanted to post a short update.  As some of you know, last Fall my church family at OLCC sent me to serve as the Family Ministry Director at Frontline Church in downtown OKC.  With a very full load of new pastoral responsibilities here at Frontline and after much prayer and processing, it seemed the right time to let go of the leadership of Hazak and discontinue the retreat.  

    It has been an amazing run.  Over the last six years, the fruit from Hazak has been substantial and sweet.  Men meeting Jesus for the first time.  Desperate prayers answered.  Hungry men filled with the Spirit.  Guys connected into local church communities.  Marriages restored.  Brokenness healed.  Friendships formed.  A “Great Wall of Joy” snack table.  And on and on.  I'm sad to see it go, but at the same time honored and grateful and glad to have led it.  The miracles and memories I will carry with you through eternity.

    Keep pressing into the Lord.  He is so worth it all.

    Be strong my brothers!
