June 07 2017 By dvirtue The Remaking of Protestantism

The trend of realignment among mainline churches can be seen in the formation of ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians (2012), the North American Lutheran Church (2010), and the Anglican Church of North America (2009).

The Rev. Copper Sebok, who leads COCIN Church Panyam in Plateau State, made the announcement on April 30 during a meeting attended by the Fulani converts.

April 27 2017 By dvirtue Making Christ-followers of all nations--it's the main thing

In a workshop, I had an opportunity to share some thoughts about how the Anglican Communion can structure itself to both fulfill Christ's Great Commission to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:16-20), and at the same time reaffirm the Bible over and against false teaching by Anglican leaders (mostly in the West) who are leading people away from Christ.

April 09 2017 By dvirtue Why Has Evangelism Fallen On Hard Times?

It’s a sobering reality that nearly 80% of unchurched people say they will engage in a faith conversation but that only 30% of Christians are actually telling people about Jesus.

As I reflect on both churches, it is not their size that matters, nor the number of programs they run. In addition to their commitment to Christ and his Great Commission, their focus on making followers of Jesus Christ who pursue Christ-likeness, and their faithfulness to the Bible, I count three things they share in common:

Because of this calling, the Church has been ministering to people and communities for as long as those faithful to God's Word have been gathering together. Ministry isn't pretty--it is often difficult and uncomfortable. And it is certainly not glamorous.
