City Church Communities: Katie Ashby's Story
October 07, 2015

Psalm 133 opens with the exclamation, “How good it is when brothers dwell together in unity!” What comes to your mind when you consider relational wholeness and unity? Imagine a scene that most captures this desire for you. Who is there? What are you thinking, feeling, doing? Why is the scene so compelling? Are you giving and receiving? What is it that allows everyone to be unified?

Beauty will save the world
October 01, 2015

In his book, Beauty Will Save the World, Brian Zahnd suggests, “Christianity that is deeply enchanted by Christ’s beauty…has the opportunity to present to a skeptical and jaded world an aspect of the gospel that has been too rare for too long.”

City Church Communities: Take Off
September 08, 2015

Throughout history when the Lord adds to the number of his people, leaders of God’s people are called “to equip his people for works of service, so that the body of Christ may be built up” (Ephesians 4:12). This looks a little different depending on the context of the church and the cultural moment in which the church is established.

“Could you open the door for me?”
August 30, 2015

One evening last spring, in between dropping my youngest daughter off at softball practice, and returning to pick her up, I had enough time to workout. I brought my middle daughter with me. She’s a dancer and a gymnast. She’s the kind of workout partner that’ll humble a man.

Thoughts from Launch Sunday
August 26, 2015

"What just happened?” That’s what my wife, Ellen, and I kept saying to one another after Sunday’s launch of City Church. We know it’s going to take time for us to fully process what it all means, but for now we are simply stunned and in awe.
