Lansing Venue Update

I have been incredibly encouraged with the outpouring of support we have received regarding our planned Lansing Venue. Each time we talk about it during weekend services, I get a line of Lansing residents meeting me in the lobby afterward with business cards, offers of help, and stories about friends and family they want to bring to the new location. Here are a few things you can be praying for...

Gospel Ambition for Lansing

It was great to finally get back to preaching at Riv this past weekend, especially since we spent our time talking about having a Gospel Ambition with our lives and our church.  The text we focused on was this: I make it my ambition to preach the gospel, not where Christ has already been named, lest I build on someone else’s foundation... (Romans 15:20) It's ...

As you may have heard, Riverview is launching a venue in Lansing this upcoming fall, which is just a fancy way of saying we are opening a new location.  This new venue will have all the things you love about Riv (most of the same weekend service teachings and programs, along with great music and lots of coffee).  The only difference is this venue will in the city ...

Dear Friends, You are part ...

This just might be my favorite Corridor Art Gallery concept we have had yet at Riv.  And by "we," I mean Kristie, our esteemed Creative Director.  Of course, I have to say "we" because it makes me feel like I was a part of this. #LoveLansing

10 Reasons to Love Lansing

Recently, Kiplinger rated Lansing as one of the Top 10 Great Cities for Young Adults. This put us in the same category as Chicago, New York City, Portland, and Washington DC. For a lot of people, this was kinda a shocker. "Seriously, Lansing?" was what I heard over and over when I told people about the article. But even as someone who grew up here and ...

Lansing Pictures

OK...I need your help for a little art project I'm doing. Basically, I'm looking for pictures of the Lansing area taken by Riverview people. They don't have to be artistic, professional, or even very good, but they do need to follow these guidelines: 1) You took the picture 2) The picture was taken in the Greater-Lansing, Michigan area (if you drive to Riv ...

Lansing’s Recession Impact

This past weekend at Riv, I asked the same three questions I asked on my blog a week or so ago. 1) Have you been personally impacted by the recession? 2) If yes, how? 3) On a scale of 1 (Scared out of my mind) to 10 (Incredibly hopeful), how are you feeling?This morning the pastors and a few others prayed about the nearly 700 responses. Wow--it was powerful ...

Economy Questions

This week, I am going to be in Dallas connecting with some other pastors from around the country. I am certain the topic of the economy is going to come up while I am there. It's going to be interesting to see how everyone's churches are doing right now. I am also working on my next series at Riv, which is going to tap a little bit on the recession and it's ...
