Featured Site: The Strip Church

stripchurchThe Strip Church is doing some pretty aggressive things to reach into the heart of Las Vegas with the message: Jesus loves Sin City. As an outreach of XXXChurch.com, the Strip Church is not only serving those at brothels, strip clubs, and adult trade shows, but also ministering to the many visitors who flow through the Las Vegas Strip.

Craig Gross and his team just launched a new site at http://stripchurch.com to share their efforts and offer some great opportunities to get involved. They’re partnering with churches and individuals so groups can come and serve on the front lines of their mission.

Craig is a great friend to LifeChurch.tv and we’re excited to see how God uses the Strip Church to reach the people of Las Vegas and the many individuals who come from around the world to visit.

Featured Site: Advent Conspiracy

This week, we’re featuring a site that not only has a worthwhile message, but great execution as well. Advent Conspiracy encourages individuals and churches to spend less, give relational Christmas gifts, and donate the money they would have spent instead. I was introduced to vision last year by my friend Chris Seay.  Don’t miss the video on the home page—it’s a fantastic example of effective media.

Featured Blog: Michael Hyatt

Stop by From Where I Sit and you’ll find leadership insight, helpful content, and an occasional peek into the life of Thomas Nelson President and CEO, Michael Hyatt. Not surprisingly, he’s an avid reader and offers an interesting insider perspective into books, writing, and the publishing industry. But beyond that, he discusses topics like technology, business, personal growth, and working smarter.

I had the privilege of meeting Mike at an event last fall and loved hearing his vision for Thomas Nelson. He’s an inspirational leader and an all-around great guy.

His company was also the first publisher to catch the vision of YouVersion.com and make their Bible translations (NKJV, NCV) available for us to use.

Take a moment a swerve on over to his blog.

Featured Blog: Phil Baker

I’m back home in OKC after a fantastic trip to Australia. It was great to meet so many interesting people and learn more about the work they are doing in churches across the continent. To celebrate the great church leaders of Australia, this week’s featured blog comes to you from Down Under: PhilBaker.net. This site came highly recommended to me by several pastors I connected with during our stay.

Phil is the Senior Minister of Riverview Church, a contemporary multi-site church, based in Perth, Western Australia and Orange County, California. He’s authored several books his messages can be found on YouTube and the Riverview Podcast. His blog features a diverse mix of content, offering perspectives on books, media, culture, technology, food, sports, and the Church. It’s a refreshing change and definitely worth adding to your RSS feeds!

Featured Blog: Ben Arment

History in the Making is the blog home for Ben Arment, Experience & Innovation Director at the Catalyst Conference. As a former church planter, and founder of the Whiteboard Sessions, Ben brings a well-rounded perspective to the church blogging scene.

Ben is an amazing thinker and has great insights on church leadership, culture, and life in general. He’s been blogging for years and his experience shows in his posts that are both easy to read and interesting to think about. He’s not above taking a controversial stand, even if it goes against the grain of what most church leaders think.

Head over to History in the Making and see if your mind gets stretched in a new direction!

Featured Site: WeTheChurch.org

we-the-church.jpg

UPDATE2: The folks at WeTheChurch.org have added moderation and restored the site.

UPDATE:  I’ve removed the links to this site temporarily.  Unfortunately, the site was vandalized last night and I do not recommend you visit it until the creators have a chance to fix it and work on a solution to prevent it from happening again.  It’s really sad that people will abuse resources like this, but it happens.  I’ll update this post once there is a solution.

————————-

I realize it’s not a featured blog as we normally do, but this week, a great site, WeTheChurch launched.

WeTheChurch is a twitter-like site where people can anonymously submit praises and prayer requests — keeping the 140 character limit in tact. You can also follow WtC on Twitter, and be notified when someone has submitted something new.

From the site:

WtC.org was created to unite the church in prayer.

Need prayer in your ministry?
Submit a prayer

Thankful for something?
Submit a praise.

And while you’re here why not pray for a few things on the prayer list?

It’s that simple.
Just us, the church,
praying for each other.

This ties in very well with the unity focus of One Prayer. After I found the site, I talked to one of the creators, Chad Wright. It was great to hear his passion! Scott Magdalein also did an excellent job on the technical side of the site.

I highly recommend you visit WeTheChurch, and even better, follow it on Twitter.
