Here's a glimpse of some of the main things that went on through SPO this Fall '17 semester, including Fight Night!

I just started my last semester of college! So excited to graduate!

Following the YWAM excursion, I've been back in NJ, living at the "Men's House" with Sa...

By all common sense David was a terrible King. You could have given David a textbook on how to be king - perhaps The Prince by Machiavelli - and he would have tossed it over his shoulder.

A few days after we returned from Indonesia to YWAM Denver, I was asked to give one of the graduation speeches.

I made a covenant with the Holy Spirit.

I came into this week feeling great. After an amazing weekend of climbing some mountains with some awesome friends, and seeing God interact with me through na...

"Who are you, Jesus?" I kept finding myself asking.

"Who do you say I am?" was the answer that would subsequently pop into my mind.
