This past March over 800 students and leaders from across the country joined the Threads Team in Panama City Beach, FL to minister to spring breakers. Below is a video that First Baptist Church, Lubbock, TX sent to another missions team from their church that was doing ministry in Los Angeles regarding their experience in Panama City Beach.

I wanted to tell you about an exciting new work in Europe. I’ve recently been in touch with my friend, Larry McCrary, about some really cool stuff that he is leading. If you’ve not heard yet about Upstream Collective or the Skybridge Community, let me be the first to introduce you. His passion and this kind of ministry really connects with the postmodern generation and our efforts at Threads. Read more from Larry below.
Here’s one more more interview about my new study, Blemished. I got an email from the real Mark Batterson this week and he likes “Chase The Goat.” I think I may need to run with it :) He’s a great guy with an amazing ministry. I’m grateful for his friendship and impact on our world. (and for being a good sport with this!)
