Sale price$ 7.95


In this issue, we explore God’s regenerative work in his church. Church leaders share effective ways they’re working to rebuild deep fellowship. Portland pastor Rick McKinley describes how losing many normal markers of ministry success has driven him toward a more kingdom-focused approach. Pete Scazzero discusses the opportunity in this moment for deep discipleship and shares insights for raising up new leaders. Other articles highlight how pastors are taking on today’s unique ministry challenges, from grappling with ghosting to preaching to polarized congregations. Though God spoke these words to people in different circumstances than ours, I believe Isaiah 43:19 holds an invitation for us: “See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Our God, who makes all things new (Rev. 21:5), is at work, growing and nourishing his church. May we join the Gardener in tending his work in the wilderness.
