  • Would Jesus take in Syrian refugees?
    on Nov 17, 2015
    "Would Jesus take in Syrian refugees" was the provocative title of a recent Washington Post article and a question definitely worth wrestling with. There is a lot of buzz among politicians calling for the U.S. to stop receiving all Syrian refugees, a...
  • What is a Shema statement?
    on Jan 29, 2014
    "Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one. [Deu 6:4 ESV]You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. [Deu 6:5 ESV]And these words that I command you today shall be on your heart. [Deu 6...
  • Am I an unsung hero?
    on Jul 10, 2013
    So, I was nominated for something called an Epoch award and as a part of the process, we are supposed to write a blog response.  Their website says "Epoch 2013 honors the unsung heroes; the people who cross the boulevard or the world to serve wh...
  • Fighting For God or God Fighting For Us: Which Is It?
    on Feb 13, 2013
    I just received this from the Abandoned Times newsletter put out by the Student Volunteer Movement. I wanted to share the whole article as it is something that I wrestle with constantly and strive to find balance...
  • Right or left? How would Jesus vote?
    on Oct 13, 2012
    With the election upon us, it seems like everyone has an opinion.  There is a lot of mudslinging between the right and the left political wings with very little hope of them coming together in the middle for the common good.  It seems like...
  • Does networking count as missions?
    on Apr 19, 2011
    I spend a lot of my time in meetings and in the office doing email and phone calls.  Some days I wonder if all of this admin work and networking is making any global impact and if I should just drop all of the minutia of running an organization...
  • What is the greatest mission field?
    on Apr 6, 2011
    Some of Jesus' last words were to wait for the Holy Spirit to come and then to be his witnesses in Jerusalem AND Judea AND Samaria AND the ends of the earth.  It isn't an either/or commandment but a both/and proposition.  Jesus wanted his d...
  • What kind of war are we waging?
    on Feb 5, 2011
    I've been reflecting a bit lately on our attitudes towards soldiers in the American church vs. our attitudes towards missionaries in the American church.  This is a bit of a generalization, but I would imagine that our troops get celebrated and...
  • Do we know how to make disciples?
    on Sep 19, 2010
    Jesus' last command before leaving this planet was to "go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them, and teaching them to obey" everything He commanded us.  If I took this command seriously and decided to make one disciple each year and...
  • Has America been passed over in the Great Commission?
    on Aug 27, 2010
    There are actually less American missionaries on the field now then there were 30 years ago.  Is it the economy and people giving less which in turn causes fewer people to be deployed?  Is it that Americans are too comfortable and not willi...
  • Is there anything wrong with the American Dream?
    on Jun 21, 2010
    This video is an intro to the book Radical by David Platt. I'm always up for a good kick in the pants, so I thought I would pass this on for others to "enjoy" as well.
  • How much have we accomplished in a year?
    on Jun 1, 2010
    One year ago today, I posted a blog concerning Finishing the Task (FTT) which is an effort by some of the major missions organizations to see church planting work started among the least reached people groups of the world. When they started promoting...
  • Are we playing it too safe?
    on Apr 28, 2010
    Francis Chan recently resigned from his megachurch to possibly do some overseas missions work or some innercity ministry in Los Angeles.  Here is a clip where he talks about playing it safe.  We use some of Chan's videos and his Crazy Love...
  • Are you afraid of Muslims?
    on Mar 4, 2010
    Check out this video clip to learn about the modern day Samaritans (very similar to us but definitely considered our enemies), and see if you might be able to view them as God does:...
  • Is "the task" almost finished?
    on Dec 2, 2009
    I've been posting blogs concerning Finishing the Task (FTT) which is an effort by some of the major missions organizations to see church planting work started among the least reached people groups of the world. When they started promoting groups that...
  • What is the meaning of ethnocentric?
    on Nov 10, 2009
    Jesus was constantly trying to overcome prejudice. He was trying to help his group of twelve disciples realize that this world was not all about them (as individuals or as a group). The Jews had started thinking of themselves as God's favorites and...
  • What does the number 150 have to do with missions?
    on Oct 27, 2009
    Seth Godin recently wrote a post about Dunbar's number being the law. The "theory" is that a human can only handle 150 meaningful relationships. Obviously, you can have a lot more acquaintances than that as many of us have several hundred friends o...
  • What does worship have to do with missions?
    on Oct 21, 2009
    John Piper writes in Let the Nations be glad that worship is both the fuel and goal of missions. What does that mean? Well, worship fuels missions because missions is essentially bringing God ultimate glory by seeing all tribes, tongues, people, an...
  • Sign up for your local Perspectives class
    on Sep 19, 2009
    We have found that one of the most powerful missions mobilization tools is the Perspectives on the World Christian Movement course. They are offered online and all over the U.S. A number of our missionary training school students have shared during...
  • Does hell really exist?
    on Sep 9, 2009
    The church had a reputation for awhile of running around waving Bibles in the air telling everyone that they're going to hell. Jesus spent a lot of time talking about love, healing the sick, helping the poor, etc. so an overemphasis on hell and basi...
