The Church wasn’t designed to save itself; it was designed to give itself away. In this episode, Richard sits down (virtually) with Jeff Christopherson, co-founder of the SEND institute, co-vocational pastor of The Sanctuary Oakville, and author of the new book Venal Dogmata, to discuss the future of the Church and how striving for preservation won’t be enough.

    How awesome to hear from 2 men with whom we had encounters at Youth camp in Saskatchewan a few years ago! Thanks for sharing insight and wisdom thinking about God’s purpose for the church and churches. We need a fresh perspective in these times-a fresh word from God.
    God gave me a direction a couple of months ago when I asked what discipleship looked like. He said to me- just keep
    giving your life away for my sake. Keep investing your life in others helping them to know Jesus as you know Him.
