A Passion for Disciple-Making

  If the whole world needs Jesus, then we must share the gospel, God’s good news! Keeping it to ourselves is criminal. If you knew the cure for cancer or Alzheimer’s and didn’t share it, that would be criminal. As followers of Jesus, we have something far greater...

Reflections on Race and Christianity: Part one

  Race can certainly be a hot and controversial topic. To some it is a topic that can’t be escaped because of the color of their skin. To others it feels like walking through a minefield, not knowing where to step or what to say in the fear of miss stepping, so...
