Help, My Husband Is a Pastor!

As a woman begins to serve in ministry with her husband, she quickly learns that the life of full-time Christian service is not the exalted and glamorous existence that she may have anticipated and that laypersons often imagine.

Leadership, Unity, and... Attila the Hun?

Whereas the Hun nation and our Bible-believing churches have absolutely nothing in common, the similarity between Attila's leadership task, and the role of a pastor, is uncanny.

Gospel or Justice, Which?

Some evangelicals talk as though personal evangelism and public justice are contradictory concerns, or, at least, that one is part of the mission of the church and the other isn’t. I think otherwise.

Why I Don't Evangelize

Here I am walking the planet and ignoring the greatest need of people. I can talk to them about weather, sports, food or whatever, but Jesus? This is not on my tongue.

The Church in Post-Christendom (Part 3): Recovering the Mission of the Church

If the ecclesiocentric view of the church’s mission tends to focus on the building and maintenance of the institutional church (a place of like-minded believers), then a proper theocentric view will focus the organic church (a people who believe and obey) on the mission of God or missio Dei.

The Church in Post-Christendom (Part 2): Understanding the 'Good News'
