  • Deacons: A ministry of mercy

    Most of our Sunday morning preaching consists of working through entire books of the Bible from start to finish. Between longer series, however, I try to pause and consider if there are any particular topics that need brief attention or exposition from the pulpit. Sermons of this sort are still expositional in the sense that they expound what a particular text of Scripture teaches about a particular topic.

  • Does a Church need other Churches?

    One of the most important questions churches need to consider is how God calls us to live.  Does the Bible envision churches operating independently or joined in partnership for mission and care?  I was helped by an article written by Jon Payne, who serves as a pastor in the Sovereign Grace Church of Gilbert, Arizona and is preparing to plant a church in Austin, Texas.
