But, as recent events of violence and terror show, Nigeria is also a suffering land. On May 18 and 19, 2015, armed militants descended on four small villages an hour outside of Jos. These members of the increasingly radicalized Fulani tribesmen killed 21 people--including a local pastor--and reduced many of the buildings to rubble.

September 12 2017 By dvirtue First Impressions Matter -- Especially at Church

What are people's first impressions of your church? When we actually take the mission of the church seriously, go out from the church, build relationships with unbelievers, and get up the nerve to invite them to our church, what will their first impressions be if they come? Based on those first impressions, do you think they would come back? I'm not just talking about the landscaping although that's a part of it.

August 16 2017 By dvirtue Bringing the gospel to England - The story of Trinity Church Scarborough

At the time of my announcement in Hull, we had a very small core church planting team. It consisted of me, my wife, my three children (plus all of their toys!) and a young man who I had persuaded to join as an Assistant Minister. The plan was for him to learn how to plant a church and then in four years go and do the same thing. We didn't have any money, any more people and no building. But we did have the gospel and we did have confidence a God for whom nothing is impossible.

June 07 2017 By dvirtue The Remaking of Protestantism

The trend of realignment among mainline churches can be seen in the formation of ECO: A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians (2012), the North American Lutheran Church (2010), and the Anglican Church of North America (2009). Both ECO and NALC were formed from networks of ministers and churches that had decided that renewal from within existing Presbyterian, Lutheran, and Anglican denominations was no longer possible.

Considering the atrocious record of this Islamist group, it came as a big surprise when more than 400 Fulanis in Nigeria recently converted to Christianity and vowed to promote peace in their country.

Among the Fulanis who embraced Jesus, seven were even ordained, the Daily Post reported.

The Rev. Copper Sebok, who leads COCIN Church Panyam in Plateau State, made the announcement on April 30 during a meeting attended by the Fulani converts.

April 27 2017 By dvirtue Making Christ-followers of all nations--it's the main thing

In a workshop, I had an opportunity to share some thoughts about how the Anglican Communion can structure itself to both fulfill Christ's Great Commission to make disciples of all nations (Matthew 28:16-20), and at the same time reaffirm the Bible over and against false teaching by Anglican leaders (mostly in the West) who are leading people away from Christ.

Miller covers the process his church underwent in determining their church's story and how they could use this new space to convey their mission, vision, and values. His church's building project helped him discern three key elements that must be considered to clearly communicate your church's unique story within its physical space.

April 09 2017 By dvirtue Why Has Evangelism Fallen On Hard Times?

It’s a sobering reality that nearly 80% of unchurched people say they will engage in a faith conversation but that only 30% of Christians are actually telling people about Jesus. Despite what many may say to the contrary, the vast majority of people around us are willing to talk about faith and the deeper things of life. The void in the human heart without Jesus doesn’t change across generations.

March 24 2017 By dvirtue A Tale of Two Healthy Churches

As I reflect on both churches, it is not their size that matters, nor the number of programs they run. In addition to their commitment to Christ and his Great Commission, their focus on making followers of Jesus Christ who pursue Christ-likeness, and their faithfulness to the Bible, I count three things they share in common:
