Five Keys To Making A Successful Pivot

By |June 24th, 2015|Categories: Uncategorized|

Last week, I touched on knowing when it’s time to persevere and when it’s time to pivot. Too many people get off track from the trajectory God has for their lives, simply because they missed the signal to pivot. We do this for justifiable reasons - loyalty, family, security, etc. But no matter how good our intentions are, if we miss the signal, we’ll find ourselves out of God’s timing for our lives. In fact, if you talk to anybody that has had to make a significant pivot in their life, they’ll tell you they wish they would have pivoted [...]

Stop Swimming In The Kiddie Pool

By |May 29th, 2015|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

This weekend God hit me with a challenge/rebuke that I think will resonate with you as well. I was in a conference session and heard Him say, ”It’s time to get out of the kiddie pool. It’s time to start swimming in the depth that I have called you to.” When He said it, I knew exactly what He was talking about. I have some revelation that I think is important and I’ve been sitting on it. I’ve shared it with a few people, but I’ve been hesitant to unpack what I'm hearing to a larger audience and He called [...]

Creating War By Avoiding War: The Power Of Vexation

By |April 21st, 2015|Categories: Uncategorized|

Have you ever found yourself in a season of extended conflict? You know what I’m talking about: no matter what you do or where you go, it seems like there is always something dragging you down, confusing your thoughts and stealing your peace. In those seasons you may say to yourself, “the enemy is really on my back right now.” When people ask how you’re doing, you respond, “Man, am I ever experiencing a lot of warfare!” Well, that is true. The enemy IS harassing your relationships, your heart and everything else in between. But what you might not realize [...]

Announcing Vanguard Leadership Courses!

By |January 27th, 2015|Categories: Leadership, Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , |

I have an exciting announcement that I want to share with you this week! When I launched Vanguard Creative last year, it was to help leaders like yourself to better position themselves to make an impact in God’s Kingdom. Other people write about Christian living, leadership and other important topics. My goal is to align prophetic revelation with Kingdom ideas so that we can start making an impact on the world around us at a higher level. We need to be more than good witnesses.  We need to shift the world around us. With that in mind, I’m excited to [...]

My Three Words For 2015

By |January 8th, 2015|Categories: Uncategorized|Tags: , , , , , , , , |

I’m trying something new in my planning process for 2015 and I thought I’d share it with you. For years now, I have always taken some time at the beginning of the year to put some goals in place.  Some of my goals have been very actionable, some were rather vague and some were ridiculous leaps of faith. Sound familiar? This year, I’m trying an exercise I learned from Chris Brogan that takes a slightly different approach.  Instead of just writing goals, I'm putting a framework in place that addresses the bigger picture beyond my goals.  Chris started the My [...]

How Far Can You See?

By |May 29th, 2014|Categories: Uncategorized|

Over the last couple of weeks, I have been joining a 5:15 prayer meeting that my church has been doing each morning. It’s a short-term prayer strategy to push through to a new level of supernatural power. Part of the reason I’ve been participating (at 5:15am, people!) is that I want to hear what God is saying so that I can share it with you.  I send out Vanguard Strategies to share current prophetic words and strategies that I believe will help you to be more effective in what you do. So, I’m listening this week, and all week long the [...]
