Putting Kids in Their Proper Place: Part Four

We want our kids to have front-row seats to the spiritual growth of the community of believers as we are raising them to be Christ-centered missionaries in our world. Parents have a unique role to discipline and instruct them toward this life of following Christ. So many of you are bringing your children into the body of Christ.

Put Kids in Their Proper Place: Part Three

Could we radically redefine “normal” for our kids? As I have seen over and over in my own life, I default to “normal.” My wife will tell you that my normal is not the same as her normal but I go back to my normal all the time.

Gospel Identities in Practice

A healthy leader is one who believes the truth of the gospel, living as a disciple of Christ, as part of the family of God, and as a bold missionary. They live in light of their identity in Christ and the overarching mission of God in our city. As they lead their Missional Community, they foster an environment of deep discipleship, tangible care amongst the group members, ...

Mission as Cultivation

Note: this is part three of a series on being disciples, part of a family, and missionaries. God’s design in creation was good, very good in fact…as God reflected on what he had made there was a complete satisfaction with what came about. This is obvious, but the creation he made and the intent behind it was perfect and his design in Adam’s role was the...

Living as a Family

Note: this post is second in a series focusing on the disciple, family, and missionary aspects of our identity in Christ. This is the reason why I have so often been hindered from coming to you. But now, since I no longer have any room for work in these regions, and since I have longed for so many years to come to you, I hope to see you in passing as I go to Spain, and ...
