Ephesiology [n. ih·fē·zē·äləʒē]: The Study of the Ephesian Movement Studying the Christian Movement in Ephesus is a community conversation about the most significant church-planting movement in the early church, with 40 percent of the New Testament texts relating to it. What made that city the epicenter of the movement? And how can we replicate sustained movements in a world that feels so different? This is not another methodology or attempt to re-contextualize evangelicalism. Rather, it is a look at the story of how the Holy Spirit still changes lives, cities, and the world.

A game changer
I think it really challenges the way we do ministry coming from a Western background. For years, I felt like I struggled a lot when it came to making disciples. Hearing from these guys really affirmed the difficulties I’ve faced but also encouraged me to continue down this journey as a student always wanting to learn and being open to making mistakes. Learning from the movement in Ephesus makes you wonder: why not here?
The absence of light is darkness
This Podcast is another example of the systemic reduction of the gospel to an apology for how it makes people feel. Hope you find a real surge in listeners as you slowly reduce the light and promote darkness.
