Bringing the “Target” into Focus
I sat with a good friend the other day discussing the mission of Church Unleashed Global. We were discussing the importance of letting people know and understand what we were trying to do, and how desperately we need help from other believers. He said, “Perhaps it is not so much a ‘marketing’ issue as it […]Read more
Is your Church a Great Church?
Is your church a “Great” church? I believe that every church can be a great church, if they are willing. I have never wanted to be a part of a mediocre church. Honestly, that has never been an ambition of my life. I am so glad I had a great mother; I never wanted a […]Read more
Does the western church today reflect the culture, or change the culture? Are we a mirror reflecting the world around us, or are we a mirror that reflects the image of Christ to our world?

We Scatter the Seed.
I scattered the seed. I didn’t get as much harvest as I had hoped. Truthfully, as I sit this morning on my back porch I can see the final green in my tomato plants fading into the dried out brown from the heat. The rest of the garden is overgrown now with weeds. It was […]Read more

Ultimately with our systems and denominational perspectives, and ecclesiological ideas we all have boxes and labels and areas of comfort.Because of the changing world around us, I am finding myself more and more often in conversations with people who will ultimately […]Read more
How does Your Garden Grow?
How does your garden grow? If we consider the mission of God on every Christian, let’s consider the impact of our involvement in this mission as planting a garden. Of course we plant a garden with a view for a harvest. But in reality, what is our responsibility? What can we do? The title is […]Read more
