I cannot help but wonder if we aren’t getting positioned for change in our churches. COVID19 kicked it off. God has our attention. Now we have a lot of visible hurt in the Black community and we grieve injustice. With many churches just now getting started meeting in person and many others getting ready to, what do we do in a time like this?

Are you looking for a way to serve others? Without leaving your home? I just found out that Let’s Start Talking has 50 people on a waitlist to learn English through reading the gospels.

I told them I would get the word out so I am putting this in front of you to ask if you would pray and ask God if this…

What would Jesus do if he were here today? That is hard to answer in one sense because Jesus is at the right hand of God. But in another sense it can be very easy to answer because Jesus sent the Holy Spirit to empower the people of God in the absence of Jesus. We are His hands and feet. The church, in a sense, is the…

No churches hosting Easter egg hunts for the…

We are in a rough season. That means new challenges and new opportunities. What does it look like to be a disciple of Jesus in the COVID19 pandemic? How do we show the love of Jesus from 6…

There are so many churches that are barely making it. They may be weeks, months or just a few years away from closing their doors. What, if anything, can be done to bring them back around?

Many churches are waiting on finally making the right hire to finally find revival. It isn’t realistic. No one from the outside can do what you can’t do from the inside.

In our conversation on church restoration it is important that we examine our foundation. How many home renovation shows have you watched where the drama of the episode focused on a major and unforeseen problem with the foundation. Everything looked good on the outside but underneath it all, there were cracks.

We have to examine our foundation and my concern is that over time…
