Missional Church 4x3

The God Of The Missional Church Is Too Small

“Missional” is one of those newer words used in theological circles. Depending on who uses it, it can have vastly different meanings. What does it mean to be “missional”? And should we embrace it? “Missional” #1 One definition of the “missional church” is the assumption that all Christians should be involved in the Great Commission […]

How To Convert Unconverted Christians

There’s a saying I’ve grown up hearing: “The most difficult part of ministry is not converting non-Christians; rather, the most difficult part of ministry is converting Christians.” I know the statement isn’t completely accurate. Technically, there’s no such thing as an “unconverted Christian.” Either you are a Christian, or you are unconverted. But it certainly […]

Hey Bigot, What Do You Believe About…? (The Defense Series)

[Welcome to The Defense Series.

Don’t be fooled by the title; this article is a response to the above quote. My prayer is that the following words will help and embolden you as […]

Stop It With The Cold Evangelism – Take It To The Next Level

In 1 Thessalonians 2, Paul described his involvement and work among the people of Thessalonica: When we think of evangelism, we usually think of methods that don’t involve sharing “our own selves:” door-knocking campaigns, mailers, tracts, social-media invitations, and such like. In other words, we tend to think of cold contacts. Yet without fail, if […]

Yes, We Need To Make Disciples, But How?

We have, for the most part, forgotten how to make disciples. In our fast paced, instant gratification society, we have become impatient. The element of speed is such an intrinsic part of our society that everything we do must be done in a hurry. We tend to put off anything that can’t be done immediately, […]

How To Share Your Faith With Others

I know some Christians who tend to see non-Christians as godless enemies, rather than viewing them as “sheep without a shepherd” (Matt. 9:36), desperately in need of a Savior. While we need to be wary of the world’s influence, we’re still on a rescue mission to save as many souls as possible. For this reason, […]

Who Is The ‘Perfect’ Prospect For The Gospel?

You and I are obligated to “preach the Gospel to” (Mark 16:15) and “make disciples of” (Matt. 28:19) all the world. We call this the “Great Commission.” Christians need to take this very seriously. Lately, something I’ve been doing more often is praying for people that I can bring to Christ – prospective souls for […]

Does Your Church Believe In Marketing?

Your natural reaction to the title might be, “Of course not!” or, “What are we, a business?” If you think your church doesn’t ‘do’ marketing, think twice. Does your congregation put announcements for upcoming events in the bulletin? That’s marketing. Does your congregation have a sign by the road? That’s marketing too. Is there sometimes […]
