Whatever Became of Church? (Part Two)

The word “parachurch” is built off of two words: “para,” which means “alongside of” and, of course, the word “church.” As conceived, the parachurch is meant to serve “alongside” the church - not in place of the church or in competition with the church.

Whatever Became of Church? (Part One)

Before I die

“Before I die I want to ______.” How would you fill in the blank? It’s a haunting question, one that challenges everyone who passes by one of the hundreds of walls from Beijing to Brooklyn emblazoned with that hanging statement.

The People Meck Needs

I’ve been very open (and often very loud) in sharing that the mission of Mecklenburg Community Church (Meck) is not about transfer growth. But there is one type of person we long for and who I, personally, pray for.

Books for New Christians

Someone wrote in to ChurchandCulture.org recently, to ask which books were most pivotal to me when I became a new Christian. It was forwarded to me with the note, “Might make a good blog.” I agreed.

Your Pastor and Public Messes

Let’s be clear: as pastors, we’re not supposed to be leading in a way that creates a public mess. The Bible lays out certain qualifications for church leaders, most notably that they have demonstrated capable leadership of their own family.

Meet Generation Z

I’d like to introduce you to Generation Z. Because we need to drop everything and start paying attention to Generation Z, who now constitute 25.9% of the U.S. population.

Leadership and Social Media

There is a lot of advice out there for the use of social media that usually falls into two categories. But if you are part of a church’s leadership team, whether staff or volunteer, there’s more to add to the mix that isn’t being talked about very much.

One of the most important disciplines as a leader is to look the facts in the eye. To own the reality of your situation. Even when it bites.

I Don't Care if my Daughter Gets Good Grades or Not

Here’s a scary thought: I don’t care if my eleven-year-old daughter gets good grades or not. In fact, I don’t care if she learns most of what’s shoveled out in school these days.
