Speaking

When it comes to speaking, a great deal of my creative energy goes into the regular Sunday sermon. Each week I write, preach, and proclaim as a love letter to PazNaz. Preaching at the regular Sunday morning gathering is a great privilege. It is always my hope that through the power of the Holy Spirit, my words will edify, form, and strengthen the congregation so that we can be empowered missionaries in our own neighborhoods.

Outside of my pastoral preaching and teaching to PazNaz, I do enjoy the opportunity to speak at events and conferences when it makes sense. After praying about it, I take all speaking engagement requests to a discernment circle to help discern when to accept an engagement, and they also help keep me accountable from taking on too much.

I am able to speak on a wide range of topics:

  • The Church on Mission
  • The Missional Church
  • The Book of Romans
  • The Book of Acts
  • Covenants
  • Women in Ministry
  • Generosity
  • Covenant Community
  • The Sermon on the Mount
  • Worry
  • Worship
  • Preaching
  • The Holy Spirit
  • Eschatology
  • The Book of Revelation

Writing

I’ve contributed to several books and journals as well as written many articles, but now I am excited to say I’ve completed my first book! Take a look at Emboldened

Emboldened: A Vision for Empowering Women in Ministry

When women teach, preach, lead, evangelize, pastor, and disciple, and when men partner to embolden the women in their lives, the church’s imagination expands to better reflect God’s story and hope for the world.

The Apostle Paul and the Christian Life: Ethical and Missional Implications of the New Perspective

Chapter: A Symphonic Melody: Wesleyan-Holiness Theology Meets New-Perspective Paul

Kingdom Culture: The Sermon on the Mount

The Sermon on the Mount contains some of Jesus’s most surprising, puzzling, and profound teachings. He calls us to give up our worrying, to love our enemies, and to rejoice when we are persecuted. In this 8-week video study, you will explore the context surrounding this important passage in the New Testament and the implications Christ’s teachings have for your personal spiritual growth. Learn to live the kind of life Jesus requires of his disciples—the kind of life that will bring to earth the Kingdom Culture.
