LifeBrook is a trans-denominational ministry committed to providing programs and materials designed to help the Church Universal better navigate the changing waters of the spiritual and social landscape in 21st Century America.

 

As the Body of Christ finds its way in our post-modern, post-Christian culture, we will continue to see major changes in the way the Church goes about its business. In addition to shifts in organizational structure and a reduced role of the ordained clergy, the churches that survive will be the ones that are innovative, transformative, and incarnational.

 

Through innovative educational and service projects, LifeBrook seeks to assist congregations and other faith-based groups develop and implement missional strategies that meet what we have come to describe as “The Seven Callings of Continuing Incarnation.” Briefly stated, these callings are:

 

The Calling to Consecration

 

The Calling to Connection

 

The Calling to Comprehension

 

The Calling to Character

 

The Calling to Community

 

The Calling to Compassion

 

The Calling to Contribution

 

If the Church is to reach the growing post-Christian culture in ways that are relevant and effective, several things must be seen with clarity and focus. First, the primary question that must be answered is not, “How can we evangelize these people?” Instead, the relevant question must be, “How can I help you?” It is through this sort of proactive Christian service that the Church’s evangelistic witness can be best fostered. Secondly, the Church must reconsider how it can best present the truths of the faith in new wineskins that are more relevant to the world in which now live, move, and have our being.

I am pleased to see that someone is encouraging our brothers and sisters in the world, that is one of the reasons that I wrote a book that appeals to al Christians about angels and how they minister for us. It is on Amazon.com and sells for about $13.95. It is a classic and will inspire and strengthen the depressed, the person who is seeking to know God. The nane of the book is On the Glory Road with God and His Angels, and if you at life books would like a free copy, please email me @standgapl-org1@insightbb.com.
