This blog is a resource from the faculty and friends of Western Seminary focused on “living the Gospel in an everyday world.” In other words, we’re here to think through the implications of the Gospel for leading God’s people in everyday life and ministry.
We believe that the Gospel should impact every area of life and ministry. So whether you lead a church of thousands or a small group of ten, whether you’re a pastor or a marketplace leader, whether you lead in the church, the community, or at home, you need to understand the Gospel and its significance for your life and ministry.
So we write on the Bible, theology, ministry, leadership, and culture, and other issues. But ultimately, we bring all of these things back to the Gospel.
Our goal is to create relevant, insightful, Gospel-centered content that you can put to use in your ministry. If you are involved in Christian leadership in any capacity, then this blog is for you.
Our authors bring a wide range of knowledge, expertise, and experience to their writing. Bill Mounce (BiblicalTraining) specializes in Greek and biblical studies, with a strong emphasis on making the best of today’s scholarship available and understandable to everyday Christians. Bev Hislop (Women’s Center for Ministry) works with women around the world to sharpen their ministry skills and develop their ability to lead others in today’s world. Chad Hall (Coach Approach Ministries) is a professional coach with a passion for helping people become godly leaders. Marc Cortez writes about theology, culture, the Gospel, and anything else that he finds interesting. And John Johnson (Village Church) is the lead pastor at a local church who loves writing and thinking about pastoral theology and ministry.
