That Day On My Knees…

That Day On My Knees… by Julie Hughes   There are many ways to engage in missions and church planting. If you are planting a successful thriving traditional “hub” style church, and you are satisfied with the amount and quality of fruit, keep on going! But we were not satisfied. We knew at the rate […]

Globe Core Values – Mercy

MERCY is perhaps the most defining feature of God’s character as revealed in Jesus Christ. Mercy not only reveals God’s willingness to forgive sins, and Christ’s work to fulfill it, but it also reveals His utter kindness and His desire to “let His face shine upon us” in terms of favor and blessing.

Globe Core Values – Service

SERVICE is the attitude of heart that demonstrates our active willingness to travel an anonymous road in order to make Jesus famous. Rather than seeking to climb the ladder of success, we seek to go down that ladder so that others can be lifted up, and that ultimately Christ’s incarnational example – God who became […]

In Acts 15 a group of early church leaders gathered in Jerusalem to discuss a pressing issue. The church was growing, and the growth presented unprecedented challenges.

The Cost of Discipleship

When we think about the “cost of discipleship,” most of us focus on the personal cost: What I must change, give up, or sacrifice to follow Jesus. There is certainly a case for this in scripture. Jesus’ call to discipleship demands total allegiance, to “give up one’s life,” to “die to self,” to “take up […]

An Opportune Trouble

I don’t normally comment on current affairs, but decided to share a few words that I hope are helpful to everyone who is concerned about the state of our nation. First of all, I believe our nation – our culture, our economy, and our political and judicial framework – will continue to descend into more […]

What Kind of Leader Are You?

In ancient times the famous politician and philosopher Niccolo Machiavelli wrote about the authoritative or coercive leader. This style can be summarized thus: “Do what I tell you or die.” Fear of retribution was the motivating force, and Machiavelli argued for its merits with precision. Today, such leadership – even when scaled down to the […]

Speaking the Truth in Love

If you are like most humans, speaking the truth is done only one way – with vigor, sometimes frustration, maybe even anger. We don’t know how to speak the truth any other way. Why is that? Because truth is combative. It is pushing back on lies. It is casting light on darkness. Truth challenges falsehood… […]
