Missio Dei

Where did God send you today?  In our attempt to find out what God wants us to do and in our churches looking to find a unique mission statement to follow, have we missed the simplicity of Missio Dei? This is an incredible video of Micheal Frost - missiologist at the Prebyterian Global Fellowship Conference in Houston, Texas.  When you have 52 minutes to spare this is a must see.  If you cannot watch the [...]

Going Missional…

I read an article this morning that made me think about the many trips I've taken with my family.  When we pack the car to go to Grandmom and Pop's house for Christmas with a family of five, packing becomes an art form if not an engineering miracle.  If you ask my wife, I am the worst at taking less.
