Welcome to the first post of my new blog. By no means do I assume to be an expert in matters concerning leadership, missional living, or leading a missional church. However, I do feel passionate about sharing what I have learned and what I am still learning from 30+ years of ministry. I am beginning this blog with the intention of posting regular how-to’s, cultural perspectives, and encouragement to those passionate about following Jesus’ Mandate to carry out His Mission of building His Kingdom.
The Journey Begins
Why is our church not growing? Why are we not reaching more people? How could we make more of an eternal impact in our community? These were questions I found myself asking on a regular basis. As I searched God’s Word with a renewed passion to learn as if it were the first time I read it, fresh ideas about how Jesus served others and how He lived outside the religious cultural norm began to leap right off the pages like they never had for me before. The resulting journey of fresh discovery (which I am still on, by the way), is what I want to begin sharing with you.
