Imagine the Church of Jesus Christ partnering together in unity to be part of ending homelessness in Ventura., California. That’s what The Kingdom Center is all about!

A few months ago, I had the privilege of enjoying an evening of conversation and Thai food with J.R. Woodward. We met at his place in Hollywood (see picture I took from his window) – and then headed down the street to eat.

What would happen if churches would remove the Queen?

Often times, people see the HOPE that a Christian has and are drawn to know the source of that HOPE! Peter encourages followers of Jesus: “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.”

“Let the whole earth be filled with His glory; Amen and Amen.” Psalm lxxii.19

I always enjoy hanging out with my friends

I got an email this morning form the Barna Group and noticed that they were selling Alan Hirsch’s book for $10 plus s&h. This is a fantastic book on missional engagement.

Too many churches in America are failing to make disciples of non-disciples. The mission of many churches is internally focused on more people, more money, and more buildings, rather than externally focused on the mission of Jesus.

Missionaries are needed to transform America. Local churches must prepare missionaries for both global and local ministry. Jesus is the One who sends; local churches are to prepare those whom He is sending.

Transformational leadership is critical to transforming the mission of local churches.
