Three notable articles I read this week:

Michael Kelley3 reasons you absolutely must go to church this weekend. “One of the things we recognize about the nature of the church through our attendance is that we are actually a vital part of this living, breathing body. And as such, the church needs us.”

Jonathan EdwardsIs God the Father like my father? “I was 25 years old before I could say the word ‘father’ while praying. The word was foreign to me. It didn’t roll off my tongue the way it did for many of my Christian friends. It felt like a word from a foreign language.”

Chuck Lawless10 warning signs a servant leader has become the “king” of his kingdom. “As Christian leaders, we are called to serve others even as we’re completely reliant on God. Too often, though, a leader who was once a servant wrongly transitions into being the king of his own kingdom.”


Three people worth following:

William Vanderbloemen – William is president and CEO of Vanderbloemen Search Group, a company that handcrafts the search process for each client to help find the right leaders for ministry. You can connect with William via Twitter or at his blog on

Jimmy Scroggins – Jimmy serves as the lead pastor of Family Church in South Florida. His vision is to build families in South Florida through a network of neighborhood churches. You can connect with Jimmy via Twitter or through his website.

Todd Adkins – Todd is the director of leadership at LifeWay Christian Resources. He is a giant on social media. Every day you’ll find value in his posts, especially if you are a church leader. You can connect with Todd via Twitter or on Facebook.
