Amplifying Evangelism—One Critical Component in Becoming an Engaging Church

In a few weeks, a very special conference on evangelism will take place at Wheaton College called Amplify. It’s a bit of a mystery why there aren’t more conferences like this in light of the fact that so few churches are actually growing through evangelism. Maybe ...

The Christian Struggle with Mental Illness

Mental illness is not a subject Christians should run from.
The Christian Struggle with Mental Illness

Returning to one's home church as pastor can be tricky.
Going Back to Your Home Church: To Go or Not to Go?

Some Thoughts on Mass Evangelism

How do we spread the gospel today?

To many, there was a time when evangelism was primarily defined by traveling evangelists speaking at mass gatherings. Yet, that is changing now and it is no secret that mass evangelism is in decline in the West.

More on that in a moment…
