Greg Gripentrog, President of OC International, recently shared about the character of OC’s found, Dick Hills (1913-2005), at our One Challenge USA team retreat. I hope Dick’s heart and passion inspires you as you align with God’s mission!
It’s been great to be in New York City this week! One of the highlights for me was worshipping with my son at Central Presbyterian Church on Easter Sunday. The music and message were a powerful testimony to the glory of the resurrection!
Instead of attracting people to church, local churches have a responsibility to equip every believer as missionaries in their neighborhoods and workplaces! The problem in many churches is that “consumer Christians” are coming on Sundays to receive the goods and services that the staff offers them.

Recently, I volunteered to participate with others in answering this question. There’s been a lot of blogs about “being missional,” “missional living,” and “missional behaviors.” I’ve posted a lot about missional Christianity, missional transformation, missional distinctives, and missional practices.
Last night at our church, Dr. Jerry Sheveland, president of the Baptist General Conference, preached a message from Acts 10 entitled “The Power to Step Into the World of Others.”
