Hi! And Welcome to the story church project.
My name is pastor Marcos. At the age of 14, I was ready to leave church. So were my friends. For us, church was irrelevant at best, and a colossal waste of time at worst.
Nearly two decades have passed. I am now a full time Adventist pastor (yes, God has a sense of humour) and I absolutely love my church. But the sad reality is, despite all of our resources and programs we are struggling to connect with and reach emerging, post-modern generations.
At the Story Church Project, the goal is to inspire church members and leaders to rethink their churches and redesign them for mission - especially in secular western culture. I do this by focusing on three things: 1) Adventist theology (our story), 2) ministry structures, strategies and methods (our local churches) and 3) Adventist culture (our mindsets, habits and traditions that get in the way of reaching people).
The goal is simple. To inspire Adventists everywhere to redesign Adventism for mission!
Today, I invite you to join me in the mission. To do so, simply: 1) Subscribe to the Newsletter (Why not? You get a free eBook!), 2) Share this page with your leaders and church members, and 3) Engage with the content (blogs, podcasts, eBooks) for inspiration, insights and challenges.
Thanks so much for visiting and I look forward to connecting with you sometime!
