I love being a pastor in New England, I don’t have any plans to ever leave the area. I hope, Lord willing, that I will die right here in New England sharing Jesus with people. Not only do I love being a pastor but I also love that I can be part of training and equipping others in New England (and beyond).
I wanted to share a couple different things that are coming up in March to train people in the New England area for living on Mission for Jesus!
Mission New England – March 2nd Norwich CT.
We often struggle with making the gospel a part of our daily lives, let alone something that we will share with those we work with, go to school with or see at the local super market. The topic of this Gospel Alliance Regional is Mission New England. As Christians here in New England, we are called to live out and proclaim the truth of Jesus to those around us, it is not someone else’s job. Join us March 2nd as we gather in Norwich CT with pastor Rob Burns, Real Life Philly, as we look at the message of the gospel and why we should proclaim it. This one day event, hosted by Norwich Alliance Church, will help us as the church learn more about the message we are to proclaim and how we are to proclaim it. Registration is open now and is only $10 for groups of 5 or more and $12 per person, until Feb 27th. For all the details scroll down.
This training is not only for pastors, but for anyone who wants to live on Mission.

This week there has been a couple great deals that have come into my mailbox that I wanted to pass along to you.

About the Book - Heard the one about the guy who wrestled a lion in a pit on a snowy day just for fun? Or about the guy who took on a giant Egyptian twice his size? Or the three special ops ninjas who risked their all in enemy territory – just to get a bottle of spring water for their General?
These are just some of the startling exploits of the Mighty Men who fought alongside King David. The stories are gripping, astonishing and powerfully brought to life in the pages of this book.
But these are not just bed-time tales of heroic men from a lost age. They are stories that shine a powerful and sometimes uncomfortable light on what it means to be a true man of God – a Christian – today. Read it, reflect on it, think through the implications by yourself or with others to train yourself for the greatest battle of all.
Oh yes, and what’s so special about a bean field that would make you want to stand your ground alone against a slavering horde of Philistines?
The answers to these and many more questions are to be found within this no-holds-barred guide to spiritual warfare for today’s Christian man…
