As you may have read in my newsletter, recently we had two EPIC mission trips. One to Ft. Lauderdale during Spring Break and one to Miami during Miami Pride. They were both amazing and God moved so powerfully. Here’s a few pics and videos from the trips. I hope you enjoy them!

Ft. Lauderdale Beach, Spring Break 2023, Night 1
Before we would go out to minister, we would always worship and pray together for over an hour to be filled with the Spirit of God. These times were SO powerful! Here’s a video of us doing that on night 1.
After this, we headed down to A1A and Las Olas Blvd, where all the action is. We had an amazing worship team, and we were only about 500 feet from the packed clubs! So fun! Here are a few videos of us ministering.
Here are a few pics from that evening. We were out until after 2am praying for people virtually non stop!
After a short night of rest, we got together and went out again around noon.
After staying on the corner for a while, we took the Jesus train down the beach and had some pretty interesting interactions. Here we stopped in the middle of a crowd and sang worship and several drunk girls came over to sing with us. Never a dull moment!
Then, we planted down in a crowded spot and began to minister and God brought tons of kids to us, it was amazing. Here’s just a few pics:
Then, we all rested for a while and then we got back together to prepare for another night of ministry.
Then we went straight to the corner and began to minister, and once again, it was SO powerful.
As it was the night before, so many kids came over that we ended up being out there until after 2am praying almost nonstop.
Here’s a few pics:
One more video of the worship. My friend Alex from West Palm singing “Our God is an AWESOME God”
Then, after another short night of rest, we got together again for one last mission.
This video gives you a small glimpse of how many people were there that day:
We set up right on the corner and kids were coming up to us all afternoon:
Every so often, one of us would get up and preach through the megaphone and kids would come over and talk to us after:
Here’s some pics of people we got to pray for:
After this, we left and went back to Sarasota. The next day, I got a message from a friend in Chicago. He sent me a link to an article and wrote “is this you preaching in the video?” I checked it out and sure enough, it was. The New York Post published an article and a 60 second video about the fighting the happens on the beach during spring break and for whatever reason, they put a 10 second clip of me preaching the gospel right in the middle of it. Such a shock! Here’s the link to it-
Then, if that all wasn’t fun and exciting enough, in April I met up with evangelists from other states, and we ministered at Miami Pride- the largest gay pride rally in South Florida.
The event spans 10 city blocks and there were thousands of people there and dozens of vendors. Here’s a video from inside:
Praise God, everyone was receptive to us, and we got to pray for a number of people as well.
My friend who I ministered with had a professional camera man there recording different moments from the outreach, so he sent me a really nice video recap a few days after I got back. Here it is:
So, there you go! Pics and videos from my last two mission trips. Thanks for checking them out!
