"Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

 Jesus  //  Matthew 28

Are you the kind of person who loves garage sales? I like the opportunity for other people to pay me to haul away the things I don’t need anymore. On the other hand, a whole lot of effort has to be put in for the reward. 

After moving twice in the last year, we cleaned...

I’ll admit. It’s a click-bait article for a church to post right before a name release. But if you clicked it, I hope you’re ready to actually read this, not just browse the article for something that will help you prove a point (one way or another).

My roots go deep in...

Have you ever been driving, arrived at your destination, and realized - to your horror - that you couldn’t recall how exactly you got there? Portions of your trip were just a mental blank, which is pretty terrifying when you consider that you were driving around a 2000...

How do you feel about evangelism? If you are like most of us, the thought of talking about your faith with someone in the hopes that they will one day share your beliefs is at best anxiety-producing.

It's Easter week. A time when most churches will be experiencing record-attendance at their weekend services. But we're a church start-up. We're not even gathering for Sunday worship yet. We don't have any kind of "attendance numbers" to compare. This is getting us thi...

You know the funny thing about watching a duck swim? Above the surface, it's complete calm... but below the surface, those feet are paddling furiously!

There's a lot of similarity between this this image and what's been happening this last month. In early March, after h...

As the new year opens, we’re starting to notice an uptick in the number of questions we’ve been getting about starting a new church. People ask questions because they’ve started thinking deeply about a topic. We can’t tell you how happy this makes us!

Most recently, som...

My 18-month-old doesn’t nap well. In pretty typical fashion, the other day he woke up “hard” after a nap. He had only been sleeping about 45 minutes--short nap--and I was in the middle of a home management project. A month’s worth of receipts, bills, and statements wer...

There are two things that are constantly being worn out by my spouse--his shoes and his Bibles.

I noticed this trait early in our relationship. I bought him a pair of cowboy boots for his ordination and before the tops were even scuffed, he had worn a hole in the 1/4-in...

Gospel frontlines. It’s an idea that Mark and I had been talking about since I wrote my thesis in 2016. I want to tell you more but in order to do that, we’ve gotta talk about worship first.

As Lutheran Christians, we’ve got this great theology of worship; we believe th...
