My Blogs

Beyond Outreach
Without losing sight of the church planting work we’re doing in Brazil, I began this blog as a way to “think out loud” about how to successfully obey the command of Jesus to make disciples. In American culture, Christianity is declining. This blog focuses specifically on what the typical American evangelical church can start doing or stop doing in order to make a greater impact for the Kingdom of God.

Chronological Bible Storying Journal
Chronological Bible Storying Journal has been an on-line journal of my experience in Brazil teaching the Bible in oral form. After storying sessions, I often post a brief summary. The journal started with a couple of groups already in progress. Names have been changed to protect privacy.

Simple Bible Maps

Simple Bible Maps aims to be a resource for helping people learn the names of Bible places and where they are. The goal is to help others to learn how to draw Bible maps from memory as they tell or teach scripture narrative.

Café com Leitura
Café com Leitura is just a little storying space. This blog is a canvas for me to write stories or post recorded told stories. Some will be good, many will be average-at-best, and some will be just a waste of space. This should be a lot of fun. The title is Portuguese for "Coffee with Reading," but is a play on words and looks like "Café Au Lait."

Stephen's Cochlear Implant
Stephen's Cochlear Implant is a blog that chronicles my experience having a cochlear implant surgery and the process of learning to hear with my left ear, which has been totally deaf for as long as I can remember. I hope it can be a helpful resource for others who struggle with hearing impairment or who are considering a cochlear implant.
