Eternal Thinking in our Myopic Culture

What would it look like to truly follow Jesus’ warning not to “build our house on the sand”?  How can we be sure we’re obeying His command to avoid “working for food that spoils, but for food that endures to eternal life”?  I don’t want to waste a minute on activities with no eternal impact – but how is that possible?

The holiday season is the perfect opportunity to think eternally,

Why Strategies to Engage Church Members Don’t Work

Pastors and staff at the church Mark and Jessica attend are getting concerned.  They’ve noticed the family gradually pulling away.  Mark is clearly a gifted leader and strong in his faith, but he’s turned down multiple invitations to serve at church.  Jessica is willing to volunteer during Sunday services yet isn’t plugged into other church activities or events.  Emily was a fixture in youth group for a couple years but seems to have moved away from that social circle.

Why Churches are Losing their Most Faithful Christ-Followers

Mark is seriously considering joining the “Dones”.  He’s not quite ready to call it quits, but like a growing number of Americans who’ve been active in church for decades, Mark isn’t happy with what church has become.  Scandals rocked the first church he attended, the next church closed largely because it was run by a “genius with 1,000 helpers”, and the last church abandoned discipleship and local missions after hiring consultants from a megachurch.

Why Youth Don’t Return to Church After College

As much as Mark and Jessica would like their kids to cling to the Christian values and faith they were taught, it’s an uphill battle.  Social media, television, teachers and friends compete for their hearts and minds.  They considered sending Emily and Ethan to a Christian school, but it wasn’t affordable.  They try to monitor the kids’ intake of sexual and violent content, but it’s coming from all directions.  Eventually all children must confront the realities of a society bent on eliminating Jesus from His own equation.

The Last Person You’d Ever Suspect…

Jessica rarely misses a church service.  With Bible in hand, she smiles at the greeters and enters the foyer excitedly, saying hello to a few familiar faces as she makes her way toward the sanctuary doors.  She sees that her favorite pew is unoccupied and puts her bulletin in the seat next to her, reserving it for her husband.  As usual, Mark barely made it past the front entrance before stopping to chat with friends and staff members – and if history is any guide,

The Unconventional Church Shopper

In our last post, we considered which should come first, church engagement or discipleship?  In other words, is routing believers and non-believers alike through church events, activities and membership an impediment or gateway to discipleship?  If church engagement was strategically leveraged as a gateway then opportunities for discipleship should be readily available after jumping through the requisite church “hoops”.  However, few churches offer clear paths and adequate opportunities for growth and ministry in the community and world.
