The Audacious, Untamed God of Church Planting, Part II

Acts 13-28 In Acts 13:1-2, we see that the leadership of the Antioch church regularly ministered to the Lord together with the practice of fasting. This church was so new that they did not even have apostles in their leadership, only prophets and teachers. This is because they knew that they had to be sensitive…

20 Amazing Implications of the Dominion Covenant

In Genesis 1:26-28, we read the original covenant of creation God gave Adam. This is the most important covenant in the bible to understand our purpose in the earth because it shows the original intent in which we were created. Essentially, man, made in the image of God, was called to have children; he was…

The following are my observations regarding these three kinds…

Because the Ten Commandments are not the sole focus of this book, I will just…

Distinguishing between Prototypes, Types and Counterfeits in the Church

After being in the pastorate for more then three decades, I am convinced that in every church there are prototype leaders that best express the heart, intentions, and characteristics of the overseeing visionary of a church and or organization. This prototype is able to think like the visionary leader and be trusted when it comes…

11 Traits of the Personality Driven Church, Part II

I have been striving since the early 1980s to help the church follow in “the way of Jesus and the apostles”. That being said, one of the earmarks of the first century apostolic church is how the church edified itself in love (Ephesians 4:16) and was led by a team of leaders whose primary purpose…
