It has been a joy for me to be part of the Acts29 Network, an international network committed to gospel-centered church planting. The main advantage of being part of Acts29 is that I get to be connected to a number of solid men who care deeply about the most important aspects of theology and gospel ministry. Guys come from a variety of backgrounds and methodological perspectives which makes it a great network of men to learn from. Additionally, there are 8 other Acts29 churches in Phoenix and the pastors regularly get together, work together and help each other. It’s refreshing and rare.
Second Mile has also benefited greatly from a number of people who were relocating to the area and found us through Acts29. I can think of at least 3 families that serve in key ways who came to us via Acts29.
Second Mile Church was recently featured at Acts29’s website. Check it out.
After church on Sunday, my family is heading out of town for our summer vacation. It will include 3 days/nights in Vail, Colorado for the Acts29 Lead Pastor’s Retreat, where we hope to connect with some of our fellow church planters and wives for a time of mutual encouragement and refreshment. In particular, we’re looking forward to time with the pastors and wives of some other metro Phoenix churches (Praxis, Missio Dei Communities, Old Town Bible, and others). After that, we’ll spend some time with my parents in Denver and then head to Toledo, Ohio to be with Molly’s family. We’re super-excited to get some rest, get out of the intense Arizona heat, and spend time with our families.
While I’m gone (thanks to a cool feature of this WordPress blog that allows me to write posts now and schedule them to be published later) I’m going to have a number of posts with resource recommendations that you don’t want to miss. If you’ve read this blog much, you know that I’m kind of a resource junkie. So, check back over the next few weeks and feed your heart with these great resources.
