Lack of Community Outreach
“We are proud to be sending 35 short-term mission teams to other countries this year.” But what about all the the team’s you aren’t sending into the neighborhoods in your own city? What about the people who don’t know Christ who need something to eat, need job skills, need a friend, etc in your own city? Don’t neglect those who are geographically close to you and your church building.
Privilege hurts the church. Many people have never considered this. These 10 ways privilege hurts the church are pervasive.

Small groups are essential to this process. Fellowship, teaching, accountability, and service all occur in the small group. Each is essential to growing as a disciple of Jesus. That’s one reason small group participation is often required.

Edit: I’d like to add that this is not a new idea. The problems associated with voluntourism are well known amongst the professionals who work in international development.

Our time on this earth is brief. Just as we should steward our money wisely, so should we steward our time wisely. Just as we should generously invest our resources in His kingdom, we should generously leverage our time for what is eternally significant.

Let’s say you’re pro-development. Does your calendar show that you value self-development?

Many of us assume our development will happen organically—that through pure experience, we’ll develop. And that’s a fair assumption, but it’s not complete. A lack of purposeful self-development will equate to a lackluster leader.

Groupthink occurs when the desire for peace and harmony limit the examination of ideas. Disagreements are masked with […]

One of our best testimonies at work or out with friends is easy and effective: Love others, love God, work hard, and people will notice. There won’t always be times to share your faith in direct conversation, which is exactly why your actions matter.
