Some Listening Pleasures for Your Trip to Grandma’s

Happy Thanksgiving to my US readers! Before you take off on that long road trip to grandma’s house for the holiday, I want to share some recent resources that may be helpful during the drive.

Season two of Strike the Match ended recently. There are now 43 podcast episodes for your listening pleasure. If you are interested in matters related to Kingdom mission, innovation, and leadership, then these are for you. I had some excellent guests on seasons 1 and 2. And after you download these, be sure to subscribe (iTunes or Android) so you will receive season 3 episodes next year.

October and November were busy months with travel and speaking. Some of my hosts recorded the sessions. I have linked them below. I hope they will be of value to you.

Missions Fest Seattle was a fantastic gathering of many evangelical leaders and organizations. I am so thankful to see what the Lord is doing in the Pacific Northwest. As of now, the plenary sessions may be found on the Missions Fest’s homepage. Here you will find my message from Acts 17:26-27 on “Reaching Unreached People Groups in North America.”

The Missouri Baptist Convention had their annual CORE Conference in St. Louis. Here is the video of my message: “Church Multiplication: Reflections and Realities in the 21st Century.”

I was in Salt Lake City for the Utah-Idaho Pastors’ Conference and spoke during three sessions under the theme: “Mission on a Pioneer Front”:

Session 1: “Ecclesiology: The Most Critical Issue in Church Planting.”

Session 2: “Your Church is Closer to Planting than You Think.” 

Session 3: “Reaching Unreached People Groups in North America.” Unfortunately, the audio recording is not the best on these three videos; so, crank up the volume.

“Not Alone” was the theme of the annual convention for the Southern Baptists of Virginia. Congratulations to them on celebrating 20 years as a convention of churches! Here is a recording of our Monday afternoon session where I preached a message from Psalm 23:4: “Not Alone: You are with Me”. The message begins at the 2 hour 34 minute mark. If you do not want to hear the message, at least listen to the music–wonderful time of praise!

Again, I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday. Each day remember to “give thanks to the Lord; call upon his name; make known his deeds among the peoples” (1 Chr 16:8, ESV)!
