Ekklesia = The Ones Called Out = The Church

        What does a life “called out” look like? God has the prophet Micah describe what he wants from us. He begins by asking a rhetorical question:          With what shall I come before the Lord and bow down before the exalted God? Shall I come before him with burnt offerings, with calves a year old? Will the Lord be pleased with thousands of rams, with ten…

Numbers that Matter

      Pastors are notorious for trying to measure the health of the church they lead using numbers….attendance…giving…square footage. (True confession: I’ve certainly fallen into this more than once myself.) Numbers aren’t bad-not even the ones I just mentioned-some numbers matter more than others. Here’s a number that I think matters…

Easter: We Need a Little Help!

   We always have trouble estimating how many people are going to attend each of our three Sunday services. Our main concern is that we want our guests to have a great experience. To that end I want to ask you, as part of Team CrossBridge, to be willing to help in a couple of specific ways… Show up a little early to the service you’re attending. Remember, the…

Give Easter Away!

     We’re going to have 2,000 people be with us on Easter, many of whom may be experiencing the body of Christ for the only time this year. We want all these people to feel the love they’ll hearus talking about. I’m hoping you’ll be part of Team CrossBridge to help make this happen. Here are the top 5 things we need to show love… Park as far…

More People Are Going to Heaven!

     Do you remember that last week I told you that 100 CrossBridgers were going out in two different teams? One to Reynosa and one to the Southside of San Antonio. I had asked you to join me in covering these teams in prayer because it’s not just in the “going” that God works, but also in the “praying.” Both teams are back now and…

Two Teams Heading Out

     This weekend, we’re sending out 100 people in two teams to bring the love of Jesus to people. One team heads to Reynosa to build two homes and be servants of the people living in a colonia on the banks of the Rio Grande, just inside the Mexican border. Another team, called Kindle, heads to a Southside trailer park to host a sports camp and a Back Yard Bible…

The Cool Thing about Acts

     The cool thing about the book of Acts is that God’s heart is still burning for the nations with the same intensity as it was in the first century. With the coming of the Holy Spirit, the kingdom of God began its unstoppable advance with simple but powerful formula: The Holy Spirit comes, the Gospel is shared, people are saved from the judgement of God against…

A New Kind of Kindle

     Hundreds of CrossBridgers have been on a mission team at one time or another that travelled to Reynosa, Rwanda or some other country to be the hands and feet of Jesus. One of our dreams has been to have an in-town mission trip that was as immersive as our international ones. That’s why I’m more than excited to tell you about Kindle.      Kindle is a…

Just Getting Started

     This past Sunday we began our series through the Book of Acts. If you missed, you’re not behind; we’re just getting started, so jump on in.      Our walk through Acts gives you the chance to re-engage with God if you’ve wandered off in some way. Or, if you’d describe your faith walk as stagnate, Acts has the answer. The God of Acts is your God…
