A collaborative approach to preparing leaders for mission and ministry

Reflections on the 2015 Baltimore riots from Tony Campbell, and how we can see hope.

RCA missionaries have played a key role in the incredible growth of the Presbyterian Church in Chiapas, Mexico, over the past 90 years.

Darryl Redmond’s childhood in Paterson, New Jersey, was bright—but the city was debilitated by drugs in the 1980s, and he lost hope. Nevertheless, the seeds that were planted by Faith Chapel in Darryl’s youth have grown into an unexpected, yet fruitful, call to ministry. 

What’s a Giant Killer award? At Grace Church, it’s just one of the new ways they’re encouraging and developing leaders in the church. 

The Movement, a church plant in Minneapolis, celebrates how God has grown the church in spite of minimal resources.

Our Lord’s Community Church (RCA) in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, is making discipleship a group effort. Through its “D-groups” (D for discipleship), which typically spring from “C-groups” (C for community), the church is challenging members to deepen their faith and reach out to others.
