I’ve never been a member of a house church, but a big part of me would like to be. I love the idea of a stripped down, no bells and whistles, authentic gathering of believers making disciples and living on mission together. And I’m sympathetic with the house church...
Luke the Physician wrote a two-volume work. Volume I is the Gospel of Luke, Volume II is the book of Acts. Taken together, these books give us a careful and compelling account of what happened in the Roman Empire during the first century AD. In this post, I want to...
Change and transitions are always hard. But of course the old cliché is true: if there is one thing that never changes, it is that things are always changing. The school year ends; friends move away; marriage is forever changed with the addition of kids; the kids start going...
My trip from Nepal to Zambia felt like a time warp. You can go ahead and erase all those images in your mind from UNICEF commercials and BrAngelina adoption trips. They may reflect other parts of Africa, but they don’t reflect much of life in Lusaka, the capital of...
Here at Eternity Bible College we believe in the local church. We believe the church is the Bride of Christ, the living organism that God instituted in Acts 2 to be His primary vehicle to accomplish the Great Commission. We recognize that we as a Bible College are NOT...
We saw two worlds collide in our last couple days in Kathmandu. On Thursday, we visited a small village up in the mountains between Kathmandu and Mt. Everest. The road wasn’t as deathly as our trip to Hetauda, but I was able to offset my safety by riding on the...

When Paul preached the gospel in Thessalonica, it aroused quite an uproar. “These men who have turned the world upside down,” shouted the mob, “have come here also” (Acts 17:6). This scene drips with irony. Paul and his companions go into a large city and teach in one of...
It’s 3:00am in Kathmandu, Nepal. Jet lag has forced me awake. I’ve been here for less than 24 hours and already I’m trying to process everything I’ve seen. First, a bit of background. My good friends Adam, Mark, and Dathan and I are visiting some Nepalese pastor-friends and seeing the...
Here at Eternity Bible College, we are passionate about keeping the local church at the center of what we do. We don’t always do it perfectly, but we keep driving that direction. In light of that, we require every one of our students, including our online students all over...
