Ethlyn has been the victim of traumatic abuse and as a result has tragically lost her home, her health and her family. Ethlyn recently became a member of Christ Church of South Philly, a recent church plant from Sovereign Grace Church in Marlton, NJ. Her story is one that points to God’s redeeming love and His intimate care displayed, by His grace, through the church...

2016 Mission Video #1: Asia-Pacific Region

mission-fund-2016-1

It’s a 20-hour flight from my office to Dave Taylor’s office in Sydney, Australia. And despite the distance, we share a similar, very closely tied mission. We are both seeking to share the gospel with our neighbors. We both help to lead our local churches. We both invest in the mission of our family of churches with a desire to see more churches planted for the...

HisStory: Destin Mahalik

destin-mahalik

[The following testimony is the first in a series of stories we are calling "HisStory." We title it HisStory because these accounts aren’t about us. They are not shared to draw attention to Sovereign Grace Churches, or the people that will tell them. No, our prayer is that these stories solely capture our gaze upon God and his good redemptive work. God is the provide...

why-pray-for-people-we-dont-know

“URGENT PRAYER REQUEST!” How many emails have you received with that kind of subject line? The request might genuinely be urgent…but equally as often it’s not. And in a digital, 24-7 headlines, always-connected world the number of “urgent prayer requests” can multiply at a soul-numbing rate. Is it possible to process, let alone meaningf...

significant-books-for-pastors-in-2015

A few years ago I wrote a post that has become a habit—collecting a list of “significant books” for pastors published during the past year. A wealth of books and the crunch of time conspire to make reading choices both frustrating (how does one choose?) and critical (I must choose wisely). “Best books” lists are unavoidably idiosyncratic&mdas...

I graduated from the Pastor's College in 2009 and have been at Sovereign Grace Gilbert ever since. How long have you been a part of Sovereign Grace?

Led by the Spirit

prayer

In my home, I’m the spontaneous one. My wife, Joanne, is a planner and the more structured one. So when it comes to the area of how one prays, it’s not surprising that Joanne is faithful at praying through her “list,” while I tend to pray more as one “led by the Spirit.” That would be our default orientation in prayer based on the way Go...

Giving God Glory for His Faithfulness in 2015

Giving-God-Glory-for-His-Faithfulness

The Psalmist writes, "Not to us, O Lord, not to us, but to your name give glory, for the sake of your steadfast love and your faithfulness” (Psalm 115:1). This expression of worship springing from the Psalmists experience of God’s steadfast love and faithfulness captures the response I have to God’s faithfulness to Sovereign Grace over this past year. I w...
