Pioneers and Settlers: Understanding Sodalic and Modalic Expressions of Church

Just as a body, though one, has many parts, but all its many parts form one body, so it is with Christ….If the whole body were an eye, where would the sense of hearing be? If the whole body were an ear, where would the sense of smell be? But in fact God has placed the parts in the body, every one of them, just as he wanted them to be.
1 Corinthians 12:12, 17-18

In the family of God, we don’t all have the same job. Does that statement surprise you at all? Yes, we’re all called to be on a mission of following Jesus and making him known in the world, but we all have different parts to play. In his wisdom, God made us different. In this system, we must depend on each other to fulfill our purpose as the Body of Christ.

Developing Young Leaders in South Africa [Video]

Don’t you wish you worked with more adults or experienced leaders? That’s what I hear a lot when people find out that the team in Soshanguve is comprised solely of youth. To me the question evokes the assumption that youth are not capable of as much, are lesser somehow; second class to some extent. I believe in the wisdom that comes with experience and age; yet I hesitate to limit what God can do through someone just because of age. I feel a quote from Wendy Lesko sums up some of what I’ve learned from working with youth. She said… 

“If you ever think you’re too small to be effective, you’ve never been in bed with a mosquito!”

Finding Your Niche: 3 Types of Apostolic Ministry

Do you feel restless? Do you catch yourself imagining what could happen if there was a widespread movement of God in places of great spiritual need? Do you find yourself drawn to stories of unreached people groups, spiritually void urban areas, or “missions impossible”? Are you someone who refuses to give up on people others call a lost cause because of your deep awareness of God’s love for them?

Generational Blessing: Building Connections With the Young Adults in Our Lives

We recently moved in order to be closer to our adult kids, and soon after started asking, “How can we be relevant to them?” We knew what to do when we were raising our kids but now they had their own families, their own businesses. What did we have to offer them?

If you are asking questions like these, I want to encourage you that you have a lot to give young adults. Even if you don’t have kids, there are hundreds of young adults that need somebody like you in their lives to pour into them, young adults who need spiritual moms and dads. They need what we can give.
