Preaching Sabbath

·      Unwrapping John 1:14 (Advent Series)

·      Uniqueness of Christ

·      Sermon On The Mount

·      What Jesus Said About...

·      Parables of Jesus

·      Colossians

·      Rediscovering Worship

·      Hebrews

·      Psalms or Proverbs

·      Quest For Identity

·      Quest For Godliness

·      From Mission-Minded to Missional

·      What Did Jesus Do?

·      Selected Texts

FAQs 

What is the cost of a Preaching Sabbath? 

There is no cost, however, if a church can contribute $500 to help defer travel expenses that would be welcomed.

How far in advance should we plan for a Preaching Sabbath?

A minimum of four months.  Preaching Sabbaths can only be provided May – September due to potential inclement weather and poor road conditions. Please note that the Director of Ministry can only provide two preaching Sabbaths a year.

The Future Church podcast

One of my favourite things to do as a pastor is to learn from other pastors and church leaders. I love discussing ministry philosophy, what they have seen work in the ministries they lead. I love hearing about the risks they are taking, and things they have learned from failures they have experienced. I usually leave those conversations with a few insights that I begin to think through and apply to my ministry context.

What If Zebedee Said, “No”

Lately, I find myself thinking about Zebedee. A minor New Testament character, Zebedee appears only when James and John abandon him and his hired hands on his fishing boat as they leave to follow Jesus (Mark 1:19-20). Zebedee never shows up again, though his name recurs repeatedly in association both with James and John and with their mother, his wife, Salome (Mark 15:40).
