Thinking About Small Groups

July 2, 2013 by: Jeff Purswell

In the exciting early months of a church plant, the temptation is strong to generate a lot of activity - to identify leaders, to position people for ministry - to get people going! We’ve tried to resist this temptation, and as a result our focus has been quite simple: pray diligently, focus on the Sunday meeting (and especially the preaching of the Word), build relationships, and reach out to non-believers - and these are priorities which won’t change over time....

The Mission Nearby

June 6, 2013 by: Brian Chesemore

A few weeks ago, Jeff wrote about our enthusiastic commitment to gospel-mission (Keeping our Minds on the Mission Beyond).

An exciting aspect our new church plant is seeing the many ways God is revealing his goodness and grace through the many members actively serving one another. Because of the gospel and the ascended Christ, this is a living demonstration in our midst that “To each one is given a manifestation of the Spirit for the common good.” (1 Cor. 12:7). God’s people are joyfully doing what they love and are gifted to do! The Holy Spirit is actively at work!... Keep Reading

I’m writing from Johannesburg, South Africa, where CJ and I, along with Ligon Duncan, Kevin DeYoung, and Mark Dever, have been participating in the Rezolution Conference. It’s been a full and fruitful time, due in large part I’m sure to prayers from back home. Words can’t adequately express our gratefulness to you for praying.... Keep Reading
