The Role of History in Pastoral Care for Christians from a Muslim Background

“It happened twice, once in North Africa and once in Constantinople. I had been invited to give some lectures to congregations consisting mostly of Christians from a Muslim background (CMBs). As a professor I had a number of topics I could address, I explained to the pastors: biblical studies, spirituality, theology, and Church history…”

Visiting the Batwa Pygmies in Uganda

“Up, up, up we climbed along a dirt path that had been carved into the mountainside by bare, calloused feet that daily trod the red dust. The rolling green hills perched atop each other and reached magnificently toward heaven. Our guides, Batwa children who had run down the mountain to greet us, eagerly led the way to their small village on top of the highest hill…”

A Revolutionary Idea

“In 2007, my wife, Carol, and I joined another couple from Christ Church Anglican, Savannah to attend the New Wineskins Conference. The Lord used the first two talks by Bishop Derek Eaton and Bishop Rennis Ponniah, which by “accident” both focused on the call of Abraham in Geneses 12:1, to confirm a call to Carol and me to sell our business and get ready to do full time mission work…”

Orphaned Heart Ministry

“In 2007, I performed my musical testimony, “Lord Make Me the Person You Want Me to be” in Uganda. I was invited to do this in the town of Hoima for 1,500 residents and also at Uganda Christian University (UCU) for nearly 2,000 students. It amazed me how deeply it touched the souls of those in the audience. For some time, having worked with Dr. Sylvia Tamusuza, the founder of Love and Care Family, I found that few orphans talked about their lives…”

The aim is that—through the prayers, reflections, and responses—to not only be grieved into repenting but that we would all leave this experience bearing fruit in keeping with repentance and be agents of healing across divisions and pain. Because, repentance looks like something…”

“After spending a couple of weeks in Thailand this January, I had the opportunity to stopover in Laos for a few days on my back to Pittsburgh. I was excited to see another ministry that is run by the Anglican Diocese of Singapore, our partners in Chiang Mai Thailand…”

Kingdom Kids Create "Jewelry With A Purpose Project"

“Isn’t it fun when God shows us His creative solutions to situations in our lives? That is exactly what happened with the ‘Jewelry With A Purpose’ project. While on a mission trip in 2016 to Nyahururu, Kenya, we listened to Bishop Simon Mwaura and his lovely wife, Lucy, pour out their hearts for the children at their orphanage, Home of the Good Shepherd…”

From Mission Minded to Missionary

“As Christians, we are all called to be mission-minded, seeing ourselves as everyday missionaries wherever we happen to live and at whatever life stage we happen to be. The three testimonies below highlight that we Anglicans have “an embarrassment of riches” when it comes to the support of dozens of mission societies, ministries, missional parishes, and resources to help us discern God’s calling on our lives and to support us in all the various mission fields we serve…”

God in the Bible, Allah in the Qur’an, and Teaching your ex-Muslim Christian

“In October of 2018 we founded al kanisa al masihiya fi Madrid—the Christian Church of Madrid—an Arabic-language weekly fellowship. We were meeting in a borrowed space from a Latino Assemblies of God congregation in Tetuan, a neighborhood with a large Muslim population north of downtown…”
