Theological Education as a Partner in the Mission

The influence of theological institutions should be directional.
Theological Education as a Partner in the Mission

Countering extremism will require a thoughtful effort.
9 Ways We Can Counter Radical Islam

As an Iranian-American, I often get asked about the crisis in the Muslim world. I try to lean into the conversation, knowing a lot of sincere people are grasping for solutions.

Vision: An Odd but Necessary Thing

Vision is important, but the object of vision is primary.
Vision: An Odd but Necessary Thing

Vision is an odd thing.

Some Christian leaders find vision to be elusive. Others have great ideas about vision but are unable to apply them. And then there are leaders who think vision isn’t important as long as they are faithful and work hard at ministry.

Vision isn’t ...

My Love/Hate Relationship with Leadership

Leadership is good, biblical, and necessary
My Love/Hate Relationship with Leadership

I have a love/hate relationship with leadership.

First of all, I hate it because I’m not a natural born leader. I’ve never been able to step into leadership roles effortlessly. I meet people who just become leaders because of who they are. I have never been that person. ...

Over Professionalizing What Should be the Common Practice of Evangelism

I don’t watch much in sports, but once I dreamed of being a professional baseball player. My father used to take me to Yankees games. I was already playing little leagure, and I saw my future before me: pitcher for the Yankees.
