    Tony Merida on Convictional Faithfulness

    Tony Merida on Convictional Faithfulness

    Acts 29 is excited to gather together in Denver, Colorado for our North America Conference on October 3-5. We’ve chosen Convictional Faithfulness as the theme of our conference because what we believe shapes our desires and our actions. Our theology causes us to long for Christ’s kingdom and labor to advance it in our communities for God’s glory.

    Joining the podcast today to discuss how an unwavering commitment to our theological beliefs is essential in our mission to plant healthy, multiplying churches is Acts 29’s vice president of theological training, Tony Merida. Tony is the founding pastor of Imago Dei Church in Raleigh, North Carolina, the dean of Grimké Seminary, and the author of many books. He and his wife, Kimberly, have five adopted children.

    Cigars, Flyfishing, and 25 Years of Ministry with Steve Treichler

    Cigars, Flyfishing, and 25 Years of Ministry with Steve Treichler

    There’s nothing like sitting down and listening to an experienced pastor share some of his lessons from a life of gospel ministry. We all need to be reminded of sustaining truth on this road. Like the roll-call of names in Hebrews 11, faithful pastors point us to the unchanging, eternal, and sufficient faithfulness of our God. As he kept and used these men and women, he will keep and use us for his glory.

    Steve Treichler joins the podcast today to discuss lessons in ministry through 25 years of pastoring and planting. Steve is the senior pastor of Hope Community Church in Minneapolis, MN, which he planted in 1996. He serves as the associate regional director for the Midwest region in Acts 29 US, is married to Carole, and has three grown children. He enjoys flyfishing, duck hunting, remodeling & woodworking, brewing beer, and smoking quality cigars in his free time.

    Rob Berreth on EQUIP, Acts 29’s Online Learning Portal

    The call to “equip the saints for the work of ministry,” is one we should take to heart. Not only because the Bible tells us to, but because it’s necessary to plant healthy, multiplying churches. But for those setting out to plant a church, access to robust, theologically-rich training is not always possible. A29 Equip was developed for groups and individuals to learn online, at their own pace. It offers access to world-class content from well-known and respected leaders.

    Joining the podcast today is the Director of A29 Equip, Rob Berreth. Rob planted Redeemer Church in Bellingham, WA in 2007. He holds a Master of Divinity from Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary. Rob and his wife, Kati, have four children.

    Jonathan Dodson on Discipleship

    Jonathan Dodson on Discipleship

    Many Christians see discipleship as a pastor’s job, but the call to make disciples is for everyone. This is easier said than done. There is no step-by-step guide to healthy discipleship. In his revised and expanded edition of Gospel-Centered Discipleship, author Jonathan Dodson defines discipleship, describes the heart of a disciple, and gives practical guidance for mentor and peer-based discipleship as Jesus intended.

    Jonathan is the founding pastor of City Life, an Acts 29 church in Austin, Texas. He’s authored many books such as The Unbelievable Gospel, Here in Spirit, and Our Good Crisis. He is also the founder of Gospel-CenteredDiscipleship.com, a resource hub to help people make, mature, and multiply disciples of Jesus. He and his wife, Robie, have three children.

So much potential but so much harm

They are changing lives not with the gospel but with trauma.

Planting churches is needed, but this network seems more fraternity than family. Instead of accountability, male leaders in the network are shuffled around to other churches where they go on to wound others.

I would encourage listeners and the podcast speakers here to listen to the true, untold stories of those coming out with real wounds from A29 churches through the Bodies Behind the Bus podcast. A29 wants to reach unreached people, but they have no idea how to share the gospel in a way that ministers to people with real trauma, and, instead, they add to the trauma through spiritual abuse.

The bus Mark Driscoll drove is still running people over.

They seem to pursue growth at all costs, and the cost is paid by those unempowered and unheard.
