Don't Waste Your Easter!

Many Christians get riled up about Satan’s attacks on Christmas. Santa, tinsel, and gifts get in the way of seeing the baby in the manger. I get that. However, I get more upset about what our enemy does with Easter. I’m not just talking about fuzzy bunnies and egg hunts, although those do turn our gaze away from the empty tomb. I’m talking about something more insidi...

This is Your Green Light

Every story of influence and impact has a "once upon a time." There has never been a world changing idea that was already happening, there has never been an epic story without a beginning, and there will never be a person of influence without a starting point to the journey. This is the story of creation. This is your story....

Hopes for Missio Dei Church

There are several hopes that we as the leadership of Missio Dei have for this next season of ministry as we transition to our Missional Outpost in New Lenox. The church is an identity of God’s “called out” and “gathered people,” whose foundation is God’s revelation and the work of Christ (Matt. 16:13-20). Therefore, we want to be faith...

Bread Truck Mondays and the Gospel

Bread truck Mondays become an essential part of my spiritual journey of relying more fully on Christ and his complete work in my life. They aren't just the crappy parts that you want to discard or forget about, but they become necessary reminders for needing the Gospel in increasing and daily ways. My prayer for myself and Missio Dei Church is that we as broken but redeeme...

A Living Hermeneutic

My wife says I need a prayer filter. You see, I pray that God sends us messy people and He always seems to answer and often it is uncomfortable. Sometimes God sends us new people on Sunday mornings whose lives are messy and are looking for hope that the world cannot offer. Sometimes it is from within our church family… we finally are honest with our own mess and we allow...
