January 20 2018 By dvirtue REVIVE! YOUR CHURCH THIS YEAR

As the dust began to settle after so many of us left The Episcopal Church, the AAC looked ahead and saw the coming need for church revitalization in the Anglican Church in North America (ACNA.) The concern was, and is, that even though we have roughly 1000 churches, if these churches don't figure out how to do the hard work of fulfilling the Great Commission in our day, many of our churches will close. That's just not acceptable to us.

November 04 2017 By dvirtue Celebrating the Reformation in Spain--which is 1% Protestant

Gibraltar, under the British Crown, was a haven for some of those who fled. One of those was a Catholic priest named Juan Bautista Cabrera (1837--1916). He arrived there in 1863. There in Gibraltar he attended Methodist, Presbyterian, and Anglican churches. While there, he translated much of Edward Browne's study of the Church of England's Articles of Religion. After the Spanish revolution of 1868 he and other reformers were assured of freedom of religion in Spain and so they returned.

September 12 2017 By dvirtue First Impressions Matter -- Especially at Church

What are people's first impressions of your church? When we actually take the mission of the church seriously, go out from the church, build relationships with unbelievers, and get up the nerve to invite them to our church, what will their first impressions be if they come?

August 16 2017 By dvirtue Bringing the gospel to England - The story of Trinity Church Scarborough

At the time of my announcement in Hull, we had a very small core church planting team. It consisted of me, my wife, my three children (plus all of their toys!) and a young man who I had persuaded to join as an Assistant Minister. The plan was for him to learn how to plant a church and then in four years go and do the same thing. We didn't have any money, any more people and no building. But we did have the gospel and we did have confidence a God for whom nothing is impossible.

Both ECO and NALC were formed from networks of ministers and churches that had decided that renewal from within existing Presbyterian, Lutheran, and Anglican denominations was no longer possible.
