Here we are on the eve of another Mission Serve mission project.

I did my first World Changer project in 1991 in the Rio Grande Valley of Texas. It was there I met Andy Morris and feel in love with this new calling in my life. I have done at least one project a year since then, sometimes doing as many as three. My rough count says I have done well over 60 projects in some capacity. Most of those serving as the Project Coordinator and Worship Speaker.

It has been a wonderful journey and I cannot begin to tell you how impacting it has been on my life. The friendships, memories, and miracles have combined to tell a story…Steve’s Story.

Tomorrow at 6:00 am myself and 33 others representing North River will travel to a little place called Pine Ridge, KY. Pine Ridge is home to the Dessie Scott campus of the Buckhorn Family Services. There we will meet 82 others from Missouri, North Carolina, Alabama, and Georgia. We will do two day camps for the boys housed at Dessie Scott, and 1 for the girls on the Buckhorn campus. In addition we will put a new roof on a barn, and flooring in 5 cabins. We may even be able to put on a new fresh coat of paint in the cabins.

We will meet a lot of new friends, have our lives challenged and changed again, as well as watch God do some amazing things. It is all part of a mission trip.

Let me encourage you to be a part of this years trip.

First, you can follow the project on our North River Facebook page. We will be loading videos, pictures and updates daily. You can also go to and follow the blog for the Buckhorn Project. You can even send an encouraging message to someone at the project

Second, pray. We will have the opportunity to share the gospel to several during this week. Pray that the message will fall on receptive ears. Of course, also pray for safety in our travels as well as on the work sites.

Last, but certainly not least, be prepared to celebrate what God has done in the lives of those who have experienced this week. They will be excited and have stories to tell. Celebrate with them.

This is my story…
