What if church isn't supposed to be primarily an event or an institution or a place? What if the church is simply supposed to be a community of people shaped by vital worship, humble prayer, deep discipleship, and whole-life mission motivated by the good news about what God did(/does) through Jesus?

In other words, what if the church was just a group of people journeying through life together, trying to follow Jesus by loving God and each other better? 

This idea isn't new or novel at all. But if taken seriously, it will be completely revolutionary.

I'm on a mission to foster this kind of a church. Want to join me?

As far as personal details, I studied Physics at The University of Texas, earned an MDiv from The Seattle School of Theology and Psychology and a ThM from Perkins School of Theology at Southern Methodist University, and I currently serve as one of the pastors of Montgomery United Methodist Church in Montgomery, TX. When I find spare time, I also enjoy cooking and helping edit the praxis section at The Other Journal.
