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.

Missional Initiatives – April 13th, 2017

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

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.


Ethos is a two-year journey where pastors, staff, and leaders gather to receive training in missional/ formational pursuits and to reimagine together the church in an increasingly post-Christian world.
