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 […]

The Challenge of The Jerusalem Council

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 young Christian faith had begun leaping over the bounds of its origins in Jewish culture, and was being embraced by Gentiles. For some Jewish Christian leaders, this […]

Globe’s Core Values – Faith

FAITH is reflected in our lives, not only in our belief in God’s ability and willingness to DO certain things, but also in our utter humility about our own inadequacies and our complete dependence on Him as we seek to obey Him and bring Him to the world around us. […]

Transformation… and the Turkanas

On a recent trip to Kenya my wife and I, and our Globe Leadership Team, visited a small tribal village on the edge of Kitale. For reasons of war and drought, a few Turkana people migrated here from Kenya’s northern desert regions over sixty years ago. Since then the tribe has lived in filthy squalor […]

What Kind of Leader Are You?

In ancient times the famous politician and philosopher Niccolo Machiavelli wrote about the authoritative or coercive leader.

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… […]

My New Year’s Resolution: Think Small

In thinking about the new year, and the intrinsic partying and resolutions of every American year change, I am struck with this observation: American culture is obsessed with loud, boisterous, and BIG. This is especially true every new year, when we say goodbye to past failures and make big new year’s resolutions. “THIS YEAR,” we […]

What Would Jesus Do?

Christmas in Paintsville, Kentucky took an odd turn this year when a local school district censored the play, “A Charlie Brown Christmas.” In the play, the witty, security-blanket-toting character named Linus quoted from Luke’s Gospel about the birth of Jesus Christ. Apparently this offended one member of the community. Outraged parents took to the streets, […]
