Every-Member Ministry: All Links in One Post

For the past few weeks I’ve been writing a series on Every-Member Ministry at the Calvary Grace Church blog. Here’s a post consolidating all the articles:

Part 1: Every-member ministry as the need of the hour in many local churches.

Part 2: Every-member ministry as the responsibility of every church member.

Part 3: Every church member, being equipped, empowered, and emplaced for ministry, is able to do this work.

Part 4: Here are several easy ways to get started with every-member ministry.

Part 5: A closer look at three key areas of ministry in particular

Part 6: Some of the blessings that every-member ministry offers for both individuals and churches.

Part 7: What every-member-ministry isn’t: it is not lone-ranger ministry or a denial of authority structures or gender roles in the church.

Part 8: More of what every-member ministry isn’t: it is not a denial of diverse gifts in a congregation or of the value of specialized training or ministries in the church.

At the CalGrace Blog: Getting Started With Every-Member Ministry

We’ve seen that the need of the hour is for every-member ministry in the local church. We’ve reviewed how the work of ministry is the responsibility of every church member and not merely that of the paid staff pastors. And last week, we saw how every Christian should be able to do this work because he or she is equipped by the Word, empowered by the Spirit, and emplaced in the local church.

That all may sound plausible, but how does theory translate to practice? You may be wondering, “How do I apply this? Where do I start?” That’s what I hope to explain in this final article. Read it here:

At TGC Canada: Alberta’s Attack on Truth in Education, and the Church’s Response

Last week the Justice Centre for Constitutional Freedoms revealed that Alberta Education has launched a direct attack on Christian education, deeming the very concept of “truth” itself as intolerant. Here’s my response at TGC Canada, laying out the root issues and how Christians can think through this and respond:
