Fellowship. Relationship. Connection. I am convinced that God has wired our hearts to experience these realities in the context of the church. Within an authentic community of faith, we find other individuals who share our victories, struggles, and values. Frankly, I know of no other...

God is moving!  Can you sense it? Or maybe you even see it!  I know I certainly witnessed His work this past Sunday as we committed to send out our high school seniors and as we commissioned our college summer missionaries. Whether entering a university classroom or a work office or an...

As you read this article, sixty-nine of my closest friends (at least for now!) and I are following the “Footsteps of Paul.” I should say that we at least are retracing his steps through Greece, with quick stops in Ephesus, Crete, etc. Paul carried many titles: the apostle, the...
