I Don’t Dig Wells!

God desires to use Millennials to change the world, but as with every generation, they face unique roadblocks to living in radical obedience, and they seem to experience a particular difficulty in entering the mission field. In my previous blog posts in this series, I addressed two significant reasons why: fear of commitment and the need to instantly specialize.

In this post, I would like to look at a more fundamental barrier - the fear of the very title itself.

I Don’t Do Paperwork!

I am passionate about challenging millennials to get outside of the church and boldly share the Gospel. Each generation faces unique barriers to following God in a radical way. In every age, we are called to subvert the values of secular culture and confront the idols that are destroying people. There is perhaps no greater idol today than ourselves.

Why Did Nabeel’s Death Hit Me So hard?

The first time I heard about Nabeel Qureshi was when someone handed me a copy of Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus. I was on tour with No Longer Music, and I flew through the book on the two-day journey from Germany to Portugal.

I have had the privilege of sharing the Gospel in many countries with predominantly Muslim populations, including Northern Iraq, Lebanon, and Turkey, and Nabeel’s story was inspiring and incredibly helpful. I was profoundly affected by his remarkable testimony, and was struck by how difficult it is for a Muslim to convert to Christianity.

You Can Rent Me, but I’m Not for Sale!

I am a full-time missionary and have been for seven years. I work for Steiger International, an organization dedicated to reaching young people outside the church, and helping them grow in their relationship with Jesus.

Working in music and the arts, I interact mostly with twenty-somethings. And although stepping into full-time ministry holds its challenges for everyone, I’ve noticed some unique barriers that the millennial generation is facing. I have found that for this demographic, the chasm between inspiration and action tends to be perilous and sadly, few manage to successfully navigate it.

We'd Better Be Grateful

This summer will be my eleventh consecutive summer touring with No Longer Music. I have spent quite a number of years of my life on the road performing. Despite late nights and long van drives, sleeping on church floors, and living out of a suitcase, I am more grateful than ever to do what I do.

I can feel love in your message.

Come&Live! artist, No Longer Music, is on a tour of Europe

Check out their latest tour report:

I am part of a unique band called No Longer Music, and last summer marked my tenth straight year of touring with them. In NLM, we use music and theater to present a clear Gospel message outside the church.

Over the years, I have been in many intense situations, and it hasn’t always been safe. I’ve had rocks thrown at me, fled from a riot in Lebanon, been followed by the secret police, and had our power cut just as we started to play. One time, a guy threw a cell phone at my head while I was preaching!

We're All Hypocrites!

Ask anyone on the street what their biggest problem with Christians is and many will undoubtedly respond, "They're all hypocrites!" This is not a recent phenomenon, as even Mahatma Gandhi is known to have said, “I like your Christ. I do not like your Christians.” I for one don’t need to be told that I’m a hypocrite; I already know that. And to be fair, this label is not unique to followers of Jesus - it’s a human thing.

Stop Being So Judgemental!

In secular culture, open-mindedness and tolerance are two inviolable codes of conduct. These ideas sound noble on the surface, but our world has changed their definitions and weaponized them against Christianity.
