When God Answers Prayer: A Miracle in the Refugee Camps of Lebanon

Aminah* fled to Lebanon with her family (her husband Kamal* and their five children) about eight months ago to escape the events of the war in Syria. I visited them and attended to their need of food by providing food parcels for the family over the coming visits. Through NEO and a partner church, we were able to provide help in paying rent and other necessities for them. I started building a relationship with them by visiting them on a monthly basis. I would speak to them about Jesus and his love during these visits. I introduced Christ as a personal savior and what he had done in my life as I followed him.

Discovering God's Why in Oxford, Part 1 [Video]

“Why do we need another American missionary in Oxford?”

This charming question was put to me during one of my first meetings in Oxford with a local ministry leader. We were sitting in his office, lounging on old leather recliners, sipping tea while enjoying the view of Oxford’s prestigious Christ Church College from his window.

I wish I could say I answered him with words of thoughtful wisdom or a thought-provoking question. But I was so rattled and taken aback that I launched into a long description of the many ways in which God had previously used us in London, followed by an equally verbose apologetic for our Oxford presence. He was not impressed, to say the least.

Listen as Danny shares his story of discovering God's vision...

God Is on the Move [Video]

"How do these gospel movements which we long for and see happening in many places, begin? They often begin with one person, or one family."

While it can be challenging to see God at work, Mariah Nix (InnerCHANGE L.A.) can see places God is on the move, giving her vision and hope to keep praying and keep serving. Listen as she shares the story of her context, the gospel movement they see emerging, and the steps their team is taking to sow into that movement.

A Cause Worth Living For: Why We Go

I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb.

Can you imagine this scene? What it would feel like to stand in this vast crowd? The indescribable joy of worshiping Jesus with brothers and sisters from every nation and tribe and people and language!

I first experienced a bit of this vision 34 years ago while attending a Cru missions conference for 18,000 college students. During one of the main sessions, Elisabeth Elliott challenged my heart when she said, “There is nothing worth living for, unless it is worth dying for.”

From the President: Why We Do What We Do

The ultimate expression and realization of the Kingdom of God is when the redemptive reign and rule of Jesus happens in the lives of people …when the Kingdom breaks in and the highest and most excellent of the created order—human beings—become committed followers of the King of the Kingdom. While there are certainly other essential manifestations of the Kingdom, this remains the ultimate biblical centerpiece of the mission of God.  

A phrase that I like to use to describe this priority is that the Kingdom of God is never fully present unless people are becoming followers of the King.

When it’s all said and done, that’s what we are all about.

No Little People, No Little Places: Letting God Move Through You



I met Becca* in a small congregation. She was a homeschooling mother with a desire to be involved in God’s purposes in the world, but wasn’t sure what that could look like for her.

I challenged Becca to get involved with reaching our city with the good news of Jesus, and encouraged her that relationships she already had could be the foundation of a Disciple Making Movement—a mighty move of God.

Becca agreed to let me train her in basic Disciple Making Movement strategies. She caught a vision for how this simple Bible-focused, relationship-driven approach to evangelism might really work. She started to see some of her current relationships through different eyes.

Word, Deed, Power: The 3 Dimensions of the Gospel

What are the ways the gospel of Jesus is expressed?

I believe there are three critical dimensions of the gospel, clearly seen in the totality of scripture, which are essential if the message we speak and the lives we live are to faithfully reflect our allegiance to Jesus. These three dimensions are like the legs of a three–legged stool; if one leg is missing, the integrity of the stool is inevitably compromised.
