AFS at the 2011 Donald W. Reynolds Arkansas Governor’s Cup

The AFS management team with awards from the 2011 Donald W. Reynolds Arkansas Governor's Cup

Last Wednesday (4/20), the Agricultural Food Systems team (JD Andrade, Kirk Dennison, Lauren Kessler-Morriss, and myself) from John Brown University traveled down to Little Rock with the other two JBU teams, GardenCraft and Craftistas, for the 11th annual Donald W. Reynolds Arkansas Governor’s Cup awards luncheon. The Governor’s Cup is a business plan competition for undergraduate and graduate students in the state of Arkansas sponsored by the Arkansas Economic Acceleration Foundation. Fifty undergraduate teams from colleges and universities all over Arkansas submitted plans for this year’s competition, of which twelve made it into the semi-finals and six made the finals.

Carry the Name

This is the fourth and final post in the Passion 2011 series. These are my notes from Louie Giglio’s sermon on April 3, 2011 at Passion Fort Worth entitled “Carry the Name.”

Events like Passion are things that you come to. They have a definite beginning and end. Movements are things that happen and continue to happen. The goal of Passion isn’t to be all about Passion, it’s to start a movement in which Passion is almost forgotten because of the focus and revival of Christ in a new generation of believers.

Getting to the Bottom of Your Joy

This is the third post in the Passion 2011 series. These are my notes from John Piper’s sermon on April 2, 2011 at Passion Fort Worth entitled “Getting to the Bottom of Your Joy.” You can listen to the whole sermon here.

“My aim is that you come to enjoy be made much of by God as you make much of Him.” While this statement seems man-centered and selfish, it’s a repackaging of Piper’s famous statement “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him.”

Being Counted Worthy of the Gospel

This is the second post in the Passion 2011 series. These are my notes from Francis Chan’s sermon on April 2, 2011 at Passion Fort Worth entitled “Being Counted Worthy of the Gospel.”

Only God can open your eyes to see that to live is Christ and to die is gain. No matter what Chan says or Louie says or Piper says, they have no power to make you live for Christ. That can be discouraging at time for those in ministry until they realize that God’s purpose and desire is so much stronger and better than any human’s. Speakers, pastors, friends, etc, can set you up to see the truth of God’s crazy love, but only God can open your eyes to see it and make it real.

Living a Life on Trajectory for Christ

This is the first post in the Passion 2011 series. These are my notes from Louie Giglio’s sermon on April 1, 2011 at Passion Fort Worth entitled “Living a Life on Trajectory for Christ.”

The decisions that a person makes in college set the trajectory for his or her life. It is a time when people get to experience freedom for the first time and begin making their beliefs their own.

Quotes from Passion 2011

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to attend the Passion Conference in Fort Worth, TX. It was a great weekend that included fantastic and challenging Biblical messages from Louie Giglio, Francis Chan, and John Piper as well as worship with Chris Tomlin, Kristian Standfill, Charlie Hall, and David Crowder Band. But, the weekend wasn’t about them, it was about lifting up the name of Jesus and discussing (both in the large group and small group sessions) what living a life with Christ at the center looks like. Over the next few days, I’ll be posting some of my notes from the messages at Passion (so subscribe to the blog in order to get notified each time), but today I wanted to share some of the quotes from the weekend that I posted on my Twitter account. I pray that they are an encouragement to you and that you will encourage and challenge others with them.
