Importing Mission...

Over the past few decades there has been much to do over the term “missiology” (the theological study of the church and her mission in the world as well as her interaction with culture). There has been extensive analysis of Western culture that is no longer explicitly Christian, ringing the alarm to awaken and fulfill our calling as Christians in an evolving pluralistic society. This theme has taken many directions a...

God’s Vision for ...

God called me to the ministry right after I got saved in 1972. He gave me such a desire to see people come to Christ, it burned in my heart. He gave me His vision right from the beginning, and it came straight from Christ: And He said to them, “It is not for you to know times or seasons which the Father has put in His own authority. But you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be ...

Why International...

Modern churches may question the necessity of international missions outreach. After all, isn’t it enough that we reach our local community for Christ? Is it important for every local church to reach beyond its neighborhood to bring the message of Christ to the world? These are good questions for discussion.

Wonderfully, this is available to all, as Jesus said: “If you’ve seen Me, you’ve seen the Father.” As we consider Jesus, as He looks over the wretched, struggling, crowd, we see how God the Father sees people, including ourselves. But when He saw the multitudes, He was move...

Movie Theaters Are Our Culture’s “Synagogues” “Super cute”, says a young mother, after watching Frozen. “So good”, says your friend, walking out of Boyhood. “I loved it when they killed the guy” says your dad, wiping popcorn butter off his chin outside the ubiquitous Liam Neeson revenge movie. This is usually the extent of our responses to a movie after seeing it. Each of these “super-in-depth” movie reviews arises f...

Three Reasons the...

Then Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people. But when He saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd. Then He said to His disciples, ‘The harvest truly is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefor...
