Chris' work is planting faith communities in the villages of North Holland that are without an evangelical witness. The vision is to see a renewal movement take place that will turn what others have called the “barren north” and turn in into an oasis of renewal.

Chris and his wife, Rebecca, have 3 boys and have lived in The Netherlands since 2012.

And the salvation of many.

Part 7 of 7 - Away then with this doubt and skepticism in Christ’s blood-bought Church. No obstacle is too great for our God.

The ecclesia (Church) is a participatory community of the followers of Jesus Christ, built upon the proclamation of Jesus Christ and his Kingdom, nurtured under leadership of those called by God, situated in a particular time and place, demonstrating the power of God, for the glory of God and the salvation of many. “The Lord […]

For the glory of God

Part 6 of 7 - Our desire is to know God and to make Him known. We want it to be said of Him on the day of His return, “He came unto His own and His own heard His voice and came running!”

The ecclesia (Church) is a participatory community of the followers of Jesus Christ, built upon the proclamation of Jesus Christ and his Kingdom, nurtured under leadership of those called by God, situated in a particular time and place, demonstrating the power of God, for the glory of God and the salvation of many.

Demonstrating the power of God

Part 5 of 7 - His love and His desire to restore all that has been broken. And God has chosen to demonstrate His supernatural power and love through us, His Church.

In the New Testament we see that Jesus’ ministry was marked by a pattern of proclamation and demonstration. Wherever he went he would first proclaim the good news of redemption. He even began his ministry with the proclamation in Luke 4:16-21 that he had come “to proclaim good news to the poor…to proclaim liberty to […]

The local gospel community

Part 4 of 7 - Every community of faith is located within a particular time and place. At first, this might seem painfully obvious. However, that community which is truly aware of this fact will be able to perceive and articulate the uniqueness of their location in time and place and seek to live and witness within it in the most effective ways.

The ecclesia (Church) is a participatory community of the followers of Jesus Christ, built upon the proclamation of Jesus Christ and his Kingdom, nurtured under leadership of those called by God, situated in a particular time and place, demonstrating the power of God, for the glory of God and the salvation of many. built upon […]

The Jesus followers

Part 3 of 7 - Our hope and anchor is not in some vague, subjective conception of a “Higher Power” but specifically in the person of Jesus Christ, the only name under heaven by which man can be saved.

The ecclesia (Church) is a participatory community of the followers of Jesus Christ, built upon the proclamation of Jesus Christ and his Kingdom, nurtured under leadership of those called by God, situated in a particular time and place, demonstrating the power of God, for the glory of God and the salvation of many.

A participatory community

Part 2 of 7 - We are many. We are different. But our differences only highlight God’s mercy in saving all kinds of people.

What is the church?

Part 1 of 7 - Now let’s get specific and let’s root ourselves securely in the Scriptures. When we say “community,” “church,” “fellowship” or the like, what do we mean?

We are oasis makers.

In the middle of the desert in which sadness has reigned, these pilgrims of God bend down to their knees, roll up their sleeves and start digging.

As they go through the Valley of Baca they make it an oasis; the early rain also covers it with pools. Psalm 84:6 The audaciousness of the picture painted in this text is extraordinary. The Psalmist speaks of the people of God as pilgrims (as does most of the bible) passing through “the Valley of […]

God is not nostalgic.

From the very beginning, Christ’s church was meant to be a movement of pilgrims, strangers, exiles, those rejected by the world but at home in Christ wherever they went.

God is not nostalgic. I’m reminded of this every time I pass an old church building that’s been turned into an art gallery or a cheese museum or any number of alternate purposes. Seeing it churns my stomach. Knowing that God is not moved by it has the same effect. “God, how can you let […]

Crossing the Jordan

Throughout the Bible, the Jordan river is mentioned about 75 times. It's the river that Naman washed himself in 7 times to be healed of leprosy. It's the river where John the Baptist baptized and the river where Jesus himself was baptized. The Jordan is consistently shown to be a place of crossing, of passing through.

“Yet there shall be a distance between you and it, about 2,000 cubits in length. Do not come near it, in order that you may know the way you shall go, for you have not passed this way before.” Then Joshua said to the people, “Consecrate yourselves, for tomorrow the Lord will do wonders among […]
