Chris Futch and Zack Latham performed a parody of the famous final courtroom scene from “A Few Good Men” at the FSU Navigators talent show back in April. I’m finally getting around to posting video from that night.
I serve as the strategic communications manager for The Navigators. I keep my ministry supporters up to date through regular updates. Below is an archive of those posts. For a general overview of my work with The Navigators click here.
Yesterday was Valentine’s Day, and last night the men of The Navigators put on the third annual Nav Valentine’s Day Banquet to honor the women in the ministry. This year I helped out by being a lyricist. Rob Hodges, Bryson Bard, Zack Latham and I rewrote the lyrics to “Hey There Delilah” into the instant classic “Hey There You Nav Girls,” which was then sung live at the banquet. As writers, we took a few liberties here and there but I think in the end we put together a pretty good song. Since it was a little wordy (much more so than last year’s “Nav Girls“) we had one man since each verse and the bridge, and then we all joined in during the chorus. Here are the lyrics.
This past Thursday was the final Nav Night of the spring 2008 semester. We spent the first half of the evening honoring the graduating seniors. This year we had twelve students graduating. We had one person get up to speak on behalf of each of them. I had the honor of speaking for Aaron Gavila, my old roommate and good friend. We concluded our senior send-off by praying over them.
Each spring since I’ve been at Florida State the Navigators have gone on a prayer retreat to spend time seeking God. Each one of these has been different. I don’t mean that the activity has been different. In fact, of all the things we do year after year, this is the one event that follows the same structure each and every time we go. We arrive on Friday night and start praying. We spend all day Saturday praying. Then we spend Sunday morning in prayer. When I say each one is different what I mean is that God says and does something unique each time. This time was no exception.
