I have been involved with Christian Associates in one capacity or another—as a pastor, inept church-planter, teacher—for the last twenty years or so. I love the people, I love the organization, I love its vision for starting imaginative new communities of faith in a difficult secular environment, and I love its willingness to give serious attention to its theological underpinnings. One of these days I will post the statement on gender balance in leadership that we recently produced, as an example of our determination to develop a solid, missionally focused, biblical theology for our work.
Right now, however, I would like to to draw attention to the fact that Christian Associates is having a Giving Day today. If you’re the sort of person who doesn’t mind these brazen requests for money, please consider giving something to support Christian Associates staff and projects around the world. We will be deeply appreciative.
And if you’re interested in church-planting, you might want to check us out.
