  • College ministry wins | ()

    If you have a favorite sports team you know how much fun it is to celebrate the wins. In every area of life I think it’s important to take a moment and observe significant achievement. We need to do that in ministry as well and recently we’ve had some important wins in Southern Baptist college ministry.

    God on the move in Montreal | ()

    We talk a lot at NAMB about lostness rates and church-to-population ratios because these are the numbers that help prioritize our efforts. By far the least-reached area of North America is Quebec and our efforts there are concentrated on metropolitan Montreal where 3.8 million people live.

    The local church empowered and entrusted | ()

    Recently I wrote about NAMB’s church-centric approach to church planting, evangelism and raising up the next generation of missionaries and leaders. In short—NAMB exists to serve churches, not the other way around. That’s why Jesus established the Church and what He empowered it to do—go into all the world and make disciples.

    Serving at Cornerstone Church has allowed me to experience new friendships such as my developing relationship with my pastor’s neighbor, who is Arabic. I’m still getting to know her but she already shares her awesome Baba ganoush with me - something I don’t get back home!

    Our church-centric mindset | ()

    I love visiting with pastors and local churches. But often when I do a pastor will tell me, “Let me know if there is anything we can do for NAMB.” I appreciate the spirit behind that offer, but it is exactly opposite of how I view NAMB. The way I see it, NAMB exists to serve churches and to assist churches in their ministry.

    The essential role of partnering churches | ()

    If you connect with NAMB very often you hear a lot about church plants and the great need we have for adding thousands more in the years ahead. You also hear us talk about the need to revitalize the thousands of SBC churches that are dying or at risk. But there is another kind of church that is absolutely essential if we are to accomplish church planting or church revitalization: established, partnering churches with a heart for pushing back lostness in North America for Christ.
