CyberMonday Sale on Truth Quest & $5 Deals

 We have always sought to have an open hand to bless the practitioners who are on the front lines advancing the Kingdom of God into the dark places of our world.  



In fact, our logo seeks to communicate this very idea.  If you follow the arrows, you'll see the black arrows represent those who come in from darkness to meet our Jesus and then are sent out to the four corners of our world in light. Then they repeat it all over again!


We've been trying to put good resources in your hands the last couple of weeks with some great deals.  For Cyber Monday we are continuing the $5 Deals

and also adding a special one day sale on our Truth Quest learning community resources.     


If you aren't familiar with this resource, it is a revolutionary one year learning process for proven leaders where they learn theology in a small community by teaching it in a highly reproducible manner.

Church: No Longer "Business" As Usual
by Neil Cole  

Kid I was asked what I think about the upswing in the trend of church mergers. I first responded with a question of my own:

"Do you want the real answer or the nice one?"


To his credit he asked for the real one and I gave it. You didn't ask, but here is my real answer...  


"Merger" is a business term where two separate corporations consolidate all their assets to form one single and larger organization. Usually, this strategy is driven by greed-for money, influence and greater control of a market.

I mentioned to him that this is actually a symptom of a very serious affliction in the kingdom of God-the view of church as a business. The thinking behind a merger is that the church is a business with assets, employees, a board of directors and a commodity it offers to its constituents.  


This understanding of church is so prevalent that I imagine right now many are reading that last sentence and thinking it is a true description of what their church is today. Friends, that is how far removed we are from the New Testament.


Delving further into a false paradigm in an attempt to do it better is a bad idea. Why would you....
