February 07 2024 By dvirtue IT'S TIME FOR STRATEGIC THINKING

Changes of this magnitude require a reassessment of the landscape for Christians and the Church. Rising hostility from governments, big business, and big tech raises questions about the Church's place in the public square and the methods she uses to preach the gospel. In large swathes of the Western world, Christians are no longer welcome to fully practice and express their faith in public.

There, along with other Latin American missionaries, they have been serving for more than five years, learning the language, adapting to the culture and sharing the love of Christ with their neighbors.

July 27 2023 By dvirtue Nondenominational Churches Are Growing and Multiplying in DC

Instead, the church is a little bit of all these things. It is nondenominational, pulling together different Christian streams to minister effectively to the young white professionals who have moved to work in the capital, as well as the upwardly mobile Nigerians and South Koreans who've emigrated to the seat of the United States government.

December 02 2022 By dvirtue Anglican Frontier Missions, DOMA Churches, and the Global Missions Initiative: A Profile of Partnership

After World War II, Protestant mission organizations began proliferating with the unfortunate side effect of nestling the locus of global missions to frontier unreached people groups away from the congregation and into the hands of "mission professionals."

I was reminded of that phrase, "deal with but don't dwell on" in the last few weeks as I've read our American Anglican Council (AAC) posts and Canon Phil's excellent reporting from the Lambeth Conference.

In the 1850s, Arab slave and ivory traders began to develop a settlement to support their caravans as they crossed from Lake Tanyika (where the slaves captured in the Congo delta would join the caravan) to the port on the Indian Ocean (where they would be shipped to the Arab peninsula).
