By Trevin Wax on Jun 30, 2011 in Worth a Look

Skye Jethani on "Blessed Redundancy":

Engineering a ministry around a single leader is inherently dangerous, but what's the alternative? A lesson from the airline industry.

How the Church Should Respond to the Uneven Aging of America:

America does not age evenly. Brookings recently released a new report giving a state-by-state breakdown of the fastest growing "younger" and "older" areas of the country. What are some general responses to these trends? Allow me to share a few insights.

Woe to Me if I Don't Evangelize:

The motivations for evangelism are numerous-not the least being the eternal concerns of the lost. But it is a deep, internal gospel-identity that makes witnesses. Indeed, it's those who taste and see that the Lord is good who go on to proclaim his excellencies.

Francis Chan on What Drives Prophetic Preaching:

I don't know any other way to teach. I believe the Lord gives me a message every week. It's hard for me to teach unless I believe that God has given me that message for the people. I think it's part of a gifting. I don't know how to explain it, but I have an urgency every time I teach. I really do believe my message is from God, and it was something that he's revealed to me. Not everyone has that, but it seems to be the way that God works with me.
