quest web 2.0

The tech geeks were embarrassed with our old site and wanted to utilize some fancy but user friendly platform called Drupal.  So, Jason Rust, one of our interns and a professional web developer, took it upon himself to give birth to Quest 2.0.  Without further ado, here’s the beta version of our church’s new website.  *And if you know of folks who might be interested in our church community, please forward this link or the church website to them.

Quest 2.0 will make it easier for new visitors and church members to find the latest information about Quest. To that end we’ve made the site much easier for all the staff to update so expect to see more frequent updates.  It’s also easier for you to use: you can now sign up (or unsubscribe) to the church eNews online, you can listen to the sermons online or subscribe to the sermons as a podcast, and see a calendar of all the upcoming events.

Additionally, we have implemented some features to create more of an online community for Quest members. For church attenders there are now forums, a church directory, and church classifieds. If you’re a regular attender to Quest go ahead and sign up for an account so you can start using these additional features.

So, poke around and see what’s new, and let Jason know if you find bugs that we can help squash.  There’s still some things we need to tweak around so we need some folks to give us some assistance.

If you’re looking for a professional for “intelligent web based solutions” – Jason is the man.  His services, portfolio, and contact info can be found on his company’s website: rusted code.   Thanks Jason!

    It looks great Eugene. I love to Micah 6:8 verse on the wall. We are running trips with YWAM this summer and it is all surrounding Micah 6:8. I hope things went good this weekend with The conference.

One Day’s Wages

My Instagram

Today, Minhee and I dropped off our eldest child at her college. We have been thinking and praying about this day for many years. On some days, we hoped it would never come. On other days, we couldn't wait for it to come. On some days, we prayed for time to stop and other days, we prayed with anticipation. 
After an entire summer of laughing it off, it hit us...hard...this week. Seeing all of her stuff laid out on the basement floor was the catalyst to a load of emotions.

After unloading the car and taking her stuff to her new home for this year and mindful that she might never live with us again; helping sort out her stuff, saying hello to her roommates...I wasn't sure what to do or say.

A flood of thoughts rushed my mind.

Is she ready?
Have we done enough?
Have we taught her enough? 
What if this? What if that?

And so we shared what we have shared with her the moment she began to understand words: "Remember who you are. Remember WHO you belong to. Remember what you're about. God loves you so much. Please hold God's Word and His promises close and dear to your heart. We love you so much and we are so proud of you." And with that, we said goodbye. Even if she may not be thousands of miles away, this is a new chapter for her and even for us. I kept it composed. Her roommate was staring at me. I didn't want to be that father. I have street cred to uphold. Another final hug. 
And I came home.
And I wept.
Forget my street cred.
I miss her. I love her.
She will always be my little baby.

I'm no parenting guru. I just laughed as I wrote that line. No, I'm stumbling and bumbling along but I'd love to share an ephiphany I learned not that long ago. Coming to this realization was incredibly painful but simultaneously, liberating. To be honest, it was the ultimate game-changer in my understanding as a parent seeking after the heart of God.

While there are many methods, tools, philosophies, and biblical principles to parenting, there is – in my opinion – only one purpose or destination.

Our purpose as parents is to eventually…release them. Send forth. For His glory. Met a friend and fellow pastor who I haven't seen in over 20 years. In him, I saw a glimpse of my future. While only 10 years older, his kids are married and he's now a grandfather of 3. His love for his wife and family were so evident and his passion for the Gospel has not wavered. It was so good to see someone a bit older still passionately serving the Lord with such joy and faithfulness. Lord, help me to keep running the race for your Glory. Happy wife.
Happy life. - Eugenius 3:16

I still remember that time, many years ago, when Minhee was pregnant with our first child. She had left her family and friends in Korea just two years before. Her morning sickness was horrible and when she finally had an appetite, she craved her favorite Korean food from certain restaurants in her neighborhood in Seoul, Korea. I had no way of getting that food from those restaurants so I actually said, "How about a Whopper? Big Mac?" Sorry honey. Eat away. You deserve it. I don't care if it sounds mushy but sunsets are one of my love languages. Seoul, Korea was amazing but WOW...what a breathtaking welcome back sunset by Seattle. Not ready to let go of summer. Seattle. 7:00pm. Desperately holding on to summer. #goldengardenpark #nofilter Happy Birthday, Minhee! I'm so grateful for you. You radiate faith, hope, and love.  No...you don't complete me. That would be silly and simply humanly impossible but you keep pointing me and our family to Christ who informs and transforms our lives, marriage, family, and ministry. Thanks for being so faithful. I love you so much. (* And what a gift to be in Korea together.)
