Honoring Christ in Our Home-Day 1

The Meal and Home In the first three centuries, largely up until the time that Constantine politicalized Christianity as the state religion, the whole of the Christian worship service (the gathering) was referred to as “the Lord’s Supper.” It wasn’t a wafer and a sip from a plastic throwaway cup that was in Paul’s mind in 1 Corinthians 10:17-34, when he spoke of the Supper. The context of Paul’s argument in 1 Corinthians clearly is...

Embodying Grace

  I call upon you, for you will answer me, O God; Wondrously show your steadfast love, O Savior of those who seek refuge from their adversaries at your right hand. As for me, I shall behold your face in righteousness; when I awake, I shall be satisfied with your likeness. Psalm 17:6a, 7 & 15 (ESV) When it comes to personal evangelism, feelings of obligation, guilt, and duty have never been effective motivators for me. On the...

Artistic Expression in World Evangelization

When an entire village of Bolivian Indian ranch workers came to the Lord awhile ago, some missionary friends of mine were faced with very big questions. What do we do with this entire village of people that now know the Lord as Savior?  In what ways do they worship?  How do we teach them to study the Bible when most of them don’t read? And when they have no Bible-base music in their own heart-expressions, what do we suggest they...

Seven Evangelism Environments Artists Create

Given the objective Truth of the Gospel never changes, the PROCESS of evangelism is much more about helping people encounter Christ than it is explaining Christ—and ARTISTS are some of the most powerful God-designed servants God uses to create the environments wherein people experience the God-desired fruit of evangelism—people reconciled to God through the work of Christ. In fact when we emphasize explaining over encountering God’s...

An Interview with Charlie Hall

When Charlie Hall began in his late teens leading music and writing songs, he realized very quickly that he knew very little about guiding God’s people as a Shepherd. He didn’t know what worship leading even meant. Today, Charlie Hall still believes God is birthing something new in him even though he’s been leading music in Baptist, charismatic and de-churched settings for 25+ years. For much of his ministry Charlie admits struggling...

Theology of Technology: iPhone and Apple Watch

  It is no secret that the iPhone is a wild success, and with the launch of the iPhone 6 series, I’m sure Apple will not be slowing down in their influence any time soon.  In this post, I will not be making an attempt to slander Apple—ha, I’m writing this post on my MacBook Air, Tweeting it with my iPhone, and it’s stored in my iCloud, so it’s no secret that I love Apple products—but I want to think theologically for a second....

Theology of Technology: A Faceless World

  The Eastern Church Fathers specifically painted the Triune God as being in a relationship within Himself in a kind of “face-to-face dance.”  The word used for such a reality was perichoresis.  John’s use of the Word being with God in John 1 also testifies to this.  It means that, in the beginning, the Word (Jesus) was toward the Father—conjuring up a beautiful picture of a face-to-face God. However, the kingdom of the world is...

Worship in the Home Pt. 2

The Opportunity of the Home In Part 1 of our series on worship in the home, we introduced a little word known as paideia. We didn’t really go into much detail about the word (This was intentional), but today we will look at this term a bit more deeply, and we will continue to press it out over the weeks to come.  What the heck does this word mean anyway? We know in the Greco-Roman model of education, paideia was a cultural...

Worship is the Goal of Missions

  As worship leaders, our lives and leadership must reflect the gravity of unreached peoples. John Piper says, “Missions exists because worship doesn’t.” As those who have been commissioned to help lead people in worship, this must break our hearts. Worship leaders are a part of God’s story: we tell the story in song and in prayer. We are a part of the going and sending of the church. The Need for Missions Say among the nations,...

Worship in the Home Pt. 1

A new series from WMC and GCP. Following our Worship Leader Starts @ home. Today we’re beginning a series on what it means to worship and follow Christ in our homes. When I read material written on modern “Worship-Topics” these days, I find 80% of material is primarily framed and formulated for the context of the gathered church in a “building” or “organized service” of some sort. It is also framed around the idea of “Worship...

Reconsidering Why We Sing, Part 1: For The Mind, Body and Soul

Part 1  |  For the Mind, Body and Soul By Dave Yauk Songs are important to us!  They not only have the power to equip us for a good car ride but they rise to even higher levels of influence. Songs like My Generation, written by The Who, came to define actual points in history.  Jimi Hendrix defined a time period with All Along the Watchtower.  Fast forward into today with U2’s With or Without You, and again we find that a song’s...

Helping Your Church Navigate Change

“Annie Hawks would be turning over in her grave if she heard that song!” This was the very passionate statement said to me after church one Sunday. We had just done the Matt Maher / Christy Nockles song, “Lord, I Need You”. The song is largely based and/or inspired by the hymn “I Need Thee Every Hour” written by Annie Hawks. And on this particular Sunday, the song was close enough but different...

WMC-0158 – What To Do When People Walk Away From The Church

What To Do When People Walk Away From The Church   We live in a time where it is becoming more and more likely that people are leaving our churches. Not all churches, but a lot of them. Chances are, you know someone(s) who has left the church behind. Maybe they were wounded. Maybe they weren’t. Maybe they’re being selfish. Maybe they’re just tired. Maybe They’re burnt out. Who knows. The question is, what...
