THANKS FOR CHECKIN' US OUT!
If you are here, then you are probably a lot like us. We’re pretty average people. Working a few jobs. Raising a few kids. You know, normal stuff. We’re just a couple of Christians trying to make a difference in the world around us.
But, with all of our commitments, it can be hard to truly live purposefully and intentionally every day. We get distracted, we get bogged down, we get tired, we make excuses. We wonder if we really are making a difference. And you have probably felt the same way. We know this because we have been right there with you. We need each other, we need community to truly make a lasting impact for Jesus and to live every day with the mission we have been given.
We have spent years figuring out some of the best ways to do that in our everyday lives. And we are learning new things every day. You are probably here because you are trying to figure out the same things.
It is our passion to help and inspire you with things we have learned, stories from our lives and stories from those around us. We want to help you to be present everyday with the people God has placed in your life. They are not there by accident. We can all make a lasting impact and difference exactly where God has placed us.
We started with a plan to establish a new church in the Midtown area of Sacramento, but we quickly realized there was a greater need for Christians who would simply be good neighbors. We now focus most of our time being present in the city God has placed us. Spending time and maintaining relationships with our neighbors, in restaurants, bars, and cafes throughout our city. We now think of ourselves more as missionaries in our city but we don’t focus too much on the title.
We are part of Forge Sacramento (an organization devoted to training men and women to live as missionaries in their neighborhoods) where we help develop and coordinate content and coach participants in the local residency program. Joe also teaches Bible and History at Epic Bible College in Sacramento.
We recently published a book titled, Bless Like Jesus: Stop Trying to Convert and Simply Show People They Matter. Click the button below if you’d like to read the first chapter for free and join our VIP list for updates about future projects and content as it gets added to this site. We plan on sharing stories and advice weekly on our blog that we think you will find helpful as you seek ways to live on mission with God in your context.
