Leadership Opportunties for You


The Why and How of Life on the Margin

The Why and How of Life on the Margin
by Cam Roxburgh
VP of Missional Initiatives

Is it more advantageous for God’s people to be in a position of privilege and power or to be relegated to the margins? Perhaps the answer is not in one or the other, but rather in living as a faithful presence in whatever context we find ourselves. Today we increasingly find ourselves in the context of being on the margins, but this is not the first time God’s people have been in this position.

Planting Churches

Why We Plant Churches

Our ultimate goal is seeing people come to faith in Jesus Christ and seeing Jesus’s own prayer become reality: “Thy Kingdom come.” The more time I spend thinking about church planting, the more I am convinced that the planting of new churches can be either an end in itself or a tremendous step toward the proclamation of Jesus’s Gospel. At the NAB, we want to plant churches so lost people will hear, see, and experience a taste of the Kingdom, so they might be drawn to our beautiful Savior.

The Need for "New" Ways

The Need for ‘New’ Ways

Missional Initiatives – April 13th, 2017

Many Christians have been
 inoculated by just enough “Christianity”
to keep them from catching the real thing.

—Elton Trueblood

I will never forget the first time I led someone “to Jesus.” I had been taking a sixteen-week Evangelism Explosion course and was deemed ready to lead with the famous, “Do you know for sure that if you were to die tonight you would go to heaven?” I led several people to pray the prayer, but I have no idea where any of these people are now.

Blue Ocean Group

Red Ocean - Blue Ocean. These terms describe those who can be reached for Christ through attending church (Red Ocean), and those who will need to be reached through other means (Blue Ocean). As the church has become marginalized, we must learn to live as a Faithful Presence on the margins of culture, so that we can introduce people to Jesus in a way that they will hear.

Walking in Humility
by Dan Hamil
NAB Executive Director

"If I have observed anything by experience, it is this: a man may take the measure of his growth and decay in grace according to his thoughts and meditations upon the person of Christ, and the glory of Christ's Kingdom, and of His love."

—John Owen

Deepening Trust

by Richard Brown
NAB Vice President of Ministry Support, CFO

I grew up in a lower, middle-class home. While we attended church, no genuine relationship with God existed. In spite of two significant moves, first from Houston to New Orleans and then to Southern California, life was stable, until my parents announced their separation and pending divorce the day after sixth grade ended. I was crushed. Suddenly, life felt unstable. My struggle with anxiety began.

By His Grace

by Stu Streeter
NAB Vice President of Advancement

It’s almost a self-evident truth to say that parents play an outsized role in how their children mature and grow. My life certainly bears witness to that.
