Faith Formation

"Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing." James 1:2-4

How is our faith formed? What experiences and trials does God us to help us become like Christ? What role does the church have in forming our faith?

Stewards of God’s Gifts

Disciple-Making as Culture-Building

ust as a gardener needs to understand the advantages and disadvantages of a given climate, so too should disciple-makers study a culture well enough as to be able to challenge the idols of the day and affirm where the culture is true, good and beautiful.

A Posture of Sabbath

Rest and sabbath in a culture of exhaustion may be the only antidote to our soul fatigue. Slowing down our pace of life is becoming more and more difficult.
