The Keys to Breakthrough in the Housing Scheme: Leadership Development
January 17, 2013

This is a key area of gospel ministry in housing schemes. Many local churches completely devolve their responsibility in this area to Bible Colleges which I think can be, in some cases, to the detriment of the church and the person being ‘trained.’  Certainly, in housing schemes, we need to have a clearly defined, multi-faceted […]

The Keys to Breakthrough in the Housing Scheme: Community Skills
January 16, 2013

Robert Lupton would call this a “redistribution of resources.” His logic being (albeit from a community development perspective). Christians should live in the area they are trying to reach. Christians should work toward a ministry of reconciliation at both a “Godward” and community level. Communities are then, hopefully, going to see a redistribution of community […]

The Keys to Breakthrough in the Housing Scheme: Reconciliation
January 15, 2013

"All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making […]

The Keys to Breakthrough in the Housing Scheme: Live In
January 14, 2013

If we really want to make an impact for Christ in the many housing schemes up and down our nation, then we must be prepared to move into the area. This is the golden rule. There are no exceptions for our leaders. Ministry will fail dismally, particularly if the leaders are not part of the […]

Walking With the Poor
January 12, 2013

I bought this book with no little excitement given the list of theological luminaries that have recently been recommending it as a must read. Ron Sider, for instance, calls it: “probably the best book on how to do holistic community development.” There is no doubt that it is comprehensive in its treatment of the issues, […]

Can I Plant a Church in a Deprived Area Even if I Don't Come From That Background?
January 10, 2013

One of the questions I am routinely asked by (mainly) middle class, educated people who are interested in this type of work is: “Can I do it even though I don’t have the life experience or cultural background?” My answer is (almost always) a resounding, “Yes!” We don’t disqualify people from planting in a particular context […]

Mark Dever Introduces 20schemes
January 9, 2013

Mercy Ministry Pastors talk a lot today about mercy ministries. It's a great phrase I think. It captures part of the way God has related to us. Without his mercy, we have no hope. So it's appropriate for us as Christians, just as we show love, as we show holiness in our actions, so we […]
