Footsteps of Jesus

I was recently asked in a blog comment to define what I mean by incarnational, missional ministry.  I’ve actually been asked that same question in a number of different ways, but this may be the most direct articulation of it.  Essentially, what do I mean when I say...

Christmas all year round

Christmas all year round

I know it’s a little late to be posting a picture of a Christmas tree, but bear with me. Our church’s Christmas gift is probably just now arriving in Oaxaca, in the south of Mexico. At the initiative of one of the men in our missional house church, we at ViaCordis...

Making Life Count

Making Life Count

Not to be self-promotional or anything, but my most recent book saw its biggest bulk purchase ever over the holidays. One church bought a copy of Making Life Count for each person in their congregation as a Christmas present—over 3,000 copies. In case you haven’t seen...

Witnessing a baptism

A woman in our church was recently baptized. She invited her family to come and witness the event. They came, even though they weren’t followers of Jesus. But they had seen the dramatic changes in her life over the past months. Having come out of a recovery program,...

Crabby Joe’s Mission Statement

Crabby Joe’s Mission Statement

Ran across this sign at a restaurant and wanted to share it with you: “What’s with the mission statement? I cook the food – you eat the food – you pay for the food and then you go home. And you don’t make a mess!” Although I suppose I do value mission statements more...

What would you do?

So you’re trying to come alongside missional leaders and coach them toward effective ministry. One church planter in his 20s doesn’t seem to trust you at all. He feels disillusioned by church and reacts angrily against certain vocabulary choices you’ve made. “You just...

Hope Chest

Hope Chest

When Janet and I were engaged, she wanted a hope chest. In typical entrepreneurial fashion, I built her one from scratch without plans. Plans might take too long, so I just started with some lumber and built as I went. It turned out beautifully—a pine hope chest, one...
