Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors
and teachers, to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of
Christ may be built up until we all reach unity in the faith and in the
knowledge of the Son of God and become mature, attaining to the whole measure
of the fullness of Christ.  – Ephesians
4:11-13, TNIV


Here is what I’m hoping to accomplish with this blog: 

1. Create a sounding board for my reflections:

I’m in the process of challenging some well-worn assumptions and trying to see church and ministry in a new light

2. Stir up dialogue:

Please add your comments – the best communication goes two-ways

3. Get ideas for the church I’m planting:

… and of course, you’re welcome to borrow ideas for your own ministries as well

4. Develop resources:

I want to find out what kind of resources other practitioners need and collaborate to create them
