Five Snow-Filled Days That Can Change Your Life

The wintry environment is perfect for navigating down snow-covered hills on skis or a snowboard. Maybe a tube run down Bullet or Big Bend is more your speed.

There is really one reason why Jamie loves youth ministry, and that's because he believes that Jesus Christ wants to be in real relationships with high school students. Whether you are committed to Jesus as Lord and Savior, just a little curious, or even a bit cynical about the whole things, Jesus meets you where you are and invites you into a deeper relationship with Him.
Jamie loves camping and traveling, grilling out, going for walks, and watching movies on the couch with a big tub of popcorn. He's been married to the lovely and talented Molly Thompson since 2003. They have three children - Sam, Autumn, and Evangeline.
