The Millennial Question

Entrepreneur and Speaker Simon Sinek explains what he calls the Millennial Question. Essentially… “What do we do with these Kids?” So what does this have to do with us you ask? Ministry leaders have been essentially asking the exact same question that these business leaders have been asking. These days, we are struggling to understand why it is that Millennials have, for the most part, either abandoned the Faith or at the least, abandoned the Church. Of course what is convenient for us is to just blame them for being selfish… and we often do. But what is needed is for us to try and understand them, and meet them where they are.

Coronavirus Update

First, let us acknowledge that these are challenging times. There is a pandemic happening in our midst, and it has probably not reached its peak yet.

The Pastor’s Desk – July 2018

This month is our National Independence Day. For almost 250 years this grand experiment in individual liberty and the pursuit of personal happiness has been celebrated as Our American Story. It was here, in Pennsylvania, where our Founding Fathers placed pen to parchment, pledging their lives, fortunes and sacred honor to the Dream of a better tomorrow. At that moment, they were of one accord, of one mind and passion moving with unabatable determination towards the goal of a more perfect union.

The Pastor’s Desk – May 2018

As I attended the 2018 EMC General conference in April, I was reminded that as Christians we are members of God’s Household, a family with innumerable brothers and sisters. Some have gone to ahead of us in death, and some have yet even to know the beauty of a life lived fully in Christ, but all of us are one in the Holy Spirit. This is seen beautifully in the Connectional relationship of the Global Evangelical Methodist Church.
