CBSM Website Blurbs

Andrew is working on a brand spanking new website for CBSM and asked me to write up a few quick blurbs about our ministry.  Here’s what we came up with…

Storyline:  Our every Wednesday worship service is the time where we are coaching our students toward Christ.  Through epic videos, crazy games, awesome worship, and life-changing preaching: we are constantly pointing to Him.  So, if you’re looking for real worship that takes a real look at God’s Word, come check out some Storyline.

Framework: Our every Sunday morning small groups is the time where we are growing our students in community.  Through tight friendships and interesting discussions: our students are growing closer to Christ and each other.  So, if you’re looking for relationships that really grow together spiritually, come check out some Framework.

Ministry: Our every Sunday night student ministry teams is the time where we are commissioning our students to serve.  Through using their different God-given gifts, talents, and abilities to serve Christ, their church, and the community: our students making a huge difference by just doing what they are good at.  So, if you’re looking for real purpose that takes your life seriously, come check out some CBSM SMTs (Student Ministry Teams).

Bio: Chip has been the pastor of student ministries here at Capshaw Baptist Church since November 2007.  He grew up in Alabama (Tuscaloosa to be exact), so he’s pumped to be in an area where he gets the people and they get him.  He graduated from Baptist Bible College in PA with a youth ministry degree in 2001, and he graduated from Southern Seminary in KY with a masters of divinity degree in 2006.  Knowing Chip is really simple, he’s just super passionate about teaching teenagers the gospel and glory of Jesus Christ in all of life.

I remember loving to watch those little fur balls run around their cage, exercise in their wheel, and maneuver through all their tubes. I always dreamed of having a play-land that cool! Actually, I finally found something very similar to a hamster cage for adults…The St. Louis City Museum is amazing! But that’s beside the point.

If we didn’t act fast enough, they’d take over our home and eventually the world! Okay, that was a tad extreme. Continue reading
