GCM Everyday Audio

November 26, 2010

Last month, he GCM Collective held a one-day training focused on the gospel, community, and mission in everyday contexts.  Steve Timmis and Tim Chester has a new book coming out soon on the “ordinary” church–living as gospel communities on mission in everyday life, not just Sunday’s.  The audio from this one-day conference is not available, so check them out!

There are some additional resources that you can check out here.  I also recommend that you check out their online community, which is a great place to learn with/from others.

Steve Timmis on Laying Down Your Life for the Gospel

January 4, 2010

This morning, Steve Timmis rolled out a series of tweets that are really convicting.  I have compiled them here and want to share them with you.

* How can I be sure I would lay down my life for sake of Jesus & the gospel? Perhaps I’ll be like Peter in his bravado and subsequent denial?

* Can’t ultimately be sure until I’m called on to do so. But there are indicators in what I am reluctant to give up…

* If I’m not prepared to give up my bed to go and serve someone, I can be fairly confident I won’t give up my life…

* If I refuse to give up a holiday abroad so I can support someone in gospel ministry. I can be fairly confident I won’t give up my life…

* If I’m not willing to pursue people who are different from me in order to bless them, I can be fairly certain I won’t give up my life…

* If I’m not prepared to miss out on promotion so I can stay & help plant churches, I can be fairly certain I won’t give up my life…

* If I’m not prepared to jeopardise a friendship so that I can tell others about Christ, I can be fairly certain I won’t give up my life.

* “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” Jesus Christ

Mike McKinley Interviews Steve Timmis

January 26, 2009

One of the more significant books of 2008 was Total Church: A Radical Reshaping of Gospel and Community by Tim Chester and Steve Timmis (#9 on my top 25 list).  Mike McKinley (from IX Marks) recently interviewed Steve Timmis on various issues including preching, membership, leadership, evangelism, and missions. I thought the interview was well done and worth the read.  Here are the links:

#1 – McKinley and Timmis on Preaching
#2 – McKinley and Timmis on Membership and Leadership
#3 – McKinley and Timmis on Evangelism and Missions
