In the last four years, I have been on a global journey seeing what God has been doing in and around the world. The world has changed so much in such a short period of time due to the advancements in technology and growth in businesses. The world is much more different than even what I remembered as a young boy growing up.
I’ve been fortunate enough to see and learn much through my work at Resource Global (www.resourceglobal.org). One of the biggest lessons I learned is that Pastors are not the only ones we can learn from. There is so much to be learned from Christians who live and work in different parts of the world. I would love for people to be able to hear and learn from many of these leaders that I have met in the last four years. These global leaders are doing phenomenal things in their work, city, church, and in their lives for the Gospel.
Ever since I started UpNext, it has been my vision and desire to give and introduce those voices and people to you. Therefore, over the course of the next year, we are building a network of voices to do just that. In fact, you will be “hearing” from them weekly as they write their own blogs. Here are some of the leaders that will be sharing in the next few months: Pastor Oscar Muriu of Nairobi Chapel, Grace Liu from our Resource Global team in Jakarta and Jessica Chin from Nike. These believers are doing what God has called them to do and sharing the Gospel to the ends of the Earth.
My hope and desire is that the Gospel would bring people from different parts of the world together. These personal blogs may help to do that. We become an unexpected family because we serve one God as brothers and sisters in Christ. We should remember that teaching can come from different sources and that we should be open to hearing from those sources. I hope this platform allows you to hear from them.
Please join me each week as these leaders share with you what God is teaching and showing them.
