This summer I joined the launch team for the new Missiongathering Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Charlotte, North Carolina, along with my dear friend planting pastor Rich McCullen. I’ve taken on the role of Pastor of Social Justice and Activism, which has allowed me the opportunity to preach from time to time.
My first sermon at Missiongathering Charlotte was on the John 15 passage “I am the vine, you are the branches.” It gave me an opportunity to talk about my evangelical upbringing, missional theology, and the burgeoning progressive evangelical movement that Missiongathering is proud to be a part of.
Here’s the video of my message. Please watch and post in the comments your thoughts, questions, feedback:
P.S. I’ll be preaching again at MGCLT on Sunday, January 3. If you are in the area or know anyone in the area who might be searching for a new church home, please RSVP on Facebook. I would love to see you there!
