When the moon hits your eye like a big pizza pie...evangelize!

A few years ago, when I was with my family in Europe, we were on a train ride from Venice to Alessandria, Italy, It was on that train I got into a very interesting conversation with a fashion executive from Milan.

7 reasons churches don't grow

I've had the privilege of preaching at churches from coast to coast over the last 25 years of ministry. In the process I've talked to countless pastors, church leaders and youth pastors about how their churches are doing when it comes to growth and the reasons for it. On one side I've seen churches that thrive. They grow every year both deeper and wider.

These are not always the "mega-churches" but, in my book, they are the "mighty churches" because whether they number at 200 or 2,000 they are truly Gospel Advancing on every level. These churches have that "new believer smell" in that there's always a little edginess in the foyer because it's usually peppered with people who don't necessarily look like they should be there.

7 lessons every Christian can learn from the life and legacy Billy Graham

As the legendary Billy Graham is laid to rest today  in Charlotte, North Carolina I think the world is realizing how special he really was. He was a once-every-hundred-years type of preacher.
 
Billy Graham preached to over 200 million people (not counting his televised outreaches) and reached millions upon millions with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  God used him to reach more people for Christ than any preacher in the history of the church!
 
As a teenager I used to watch his televised outreaches (called "crusades" back then) in awe. I marveled how God used this lanky preacher with an iron jaw and an aw-shucks drawl to shake the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

How should Christians react to the latest school shooting?

Late yesterday afternoon I heard the tragic news about the school shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida. It broke my heart to hear that seventeen teenagers and adults were heartlessly slaughtered in this horrific attack.

Why church growth is going to be harder in the future

Barna just released it's new research project on Generation Z (the current and coming generation of teenagers) and the spiritual prognosis is grim. This generation of teenagers is twice as likely to be atheists than adults are. The Barna study calls them the first "post Christian generation" in U.S. history.
