It’s Not the Trump’s That Finance the Kingdom

How do we Finance the Kingdom in the 21st century? For most of the Americanized modern Church it’s that time of year again.

The more disposable or extra amounts of money should bring forth...

We are out of Egypt physically and spiritually but we are not yet home. Our hearts, our dreams and our life is in the Promise Land like Caleb and Joshua but we are surrounded by a transitional wilderness. It would be...

The Last Church Strategy by David Fredrickson

Among the many and varied forms of the Christian religion, three are fairly common, though most brands include some aspects of the following generalizations. One group is skillful at turning descriptive narratives from the scriptures into prescriptions for effective ways to build the church. They’ve come up with “apostolic” wisdom to create templates for every area of ministry from nursery to overseas missions. Deeper truth,...
