Rhythms

When you live life at a breakneck pace, one of the first things to be pushed aside is our conversation with God. Without even noticing it we give up the source of love, joy and peace, leaving us to run harder and faster. What would it look like to develop healthy rhythms in our relationship with God? What if prayer […]

Killing Idols

Week after week, I sit with people who know what their idols are, but seem incapable of eliminating them. I know I worship relationships, but I don’t know how to get rid of that. I know I care too much about how I’m perceived, but how do I stop myself from being crushed when I look like a fool? I […]

Taking the Next Step

The first time I attended Hoboken Grace, I was terrified. I dragged my friend along for moral support, but I was still anxious. Was I going to fit in? Would there be anyone there like me? Looking back, I laugh at how nervous I was, because from the moment I walked into 301 Garden I was made to feel right at home. […]

Downtown Community Turns 1!

Hoboken Grace moved into Jersey City three years ago, launching a separate location in Hamilton Park. From Day One, its goal was to love the community in a way that mirrors God’s love for His people.

Guardrails: You Want Me To Do WHAT?

I woke up hung-over. My memory of the night before was blurry. The worst part was that this was nothing new for me. It was a regular part of my life. Feeling guilty and nauseous was almost routine. As I stumbled through my apartment, I came across a Hoboken Grace card and granola bar that someone had handed me at […]

Hunting for Eggs and Finding a Place to Call Home

Once a year each spring, dozens of bales of hay are hauled into Hoboken and strewn across a playing field. Underneath lie thousands of pastel Easter eggs, ready to be scooped up and cracked open by ecstatic kids. The event — which also includes pictures with the Easter bunny, carnival games, bounce houses and face painting — has grown so big […]

The Story of Hoboken Grace

Eight years ago, a dream of planting a church in Hoboken became a reality in a dingy bingo hall. In those early months, only about two dozen people attended regularly.

Top 5 Steps to Take in 2016

One of the great things about the new year is that it gives us a chance to reset. It gives us a chance to adjust our course and set our sights on where it is we want to be and who we want to become.
