When Evangelism Really Isn’t That Hard

Director of the BGCE Evangelism Initiative offers a guide on where we begin.

We do not take Jesus to anyone. He is already present, at some level, in everyone’s life.

How could it not be so given the omnipresence of God? Furthermore, because He is a God of love, He is near every person you meet, loving and wooing him or her.

We do not go to bring ...

What Is Biblical Preaching? Stewarding the Message

Pastor of The Summit Church draws on Martyn Lloyd-Jones

One of the best books on preaching I’ve ever read is Between Two Worlds by John Stott. In it, he shared a metaphor for preaching that has always stuck with me. He said that one of the words used in the New Testament for “preacher” is the word “steward.” ...

Evangelism in a Post-Truth World

When a Pastor is a Growth Barrier: The Value of a Strong Work Ethic

God made us to work; sin made work frustrating and difficult.

A church that breaks barriers needs a leader that breaks barriers.

Dealing with sin is of the utmost importance for a leader. But there is another issue that isn’t often discussed, and for those in ministry it goes hand in hand with confronting sin—the importance ...

What is Biblical Preaching? A New Series, starting with Kyle Idleman

Southeast Christian Church Teaching Pastor is the first in a new series

As early as Acts 2, Luke wrote that Christians were devoted to, “the apostles’ teaching,” which has at least something to do with what we would call “biblical preaching” today. Many scholars believe that much of the New Testament came from sermons ...

C. Peter Wagner (1930-2016), Some Thoughts on His Life and Passing

Recovering Prayer And Discernment In Our Agendas And Strategies

Oftentimes, the spiritual practices of discernment and listening to the Holy Spirit—which inherently carry risks of subjectivity—get evicted from the Christian planning process.
Recovering Prayer And Discernment In Our Agendas And Strategies
IJM Institute

Often, our “Christian” plans are created by really smart people doing really smart things and thinking really smart thoughts. But are our organizations’ strategic plans and vision statements just secular work wrapped in Christian clothing? Add “by the ...
