I’m here to stir the Church — the sainthood of Jesus Christ — back to its holy senses. In my considerable number of years on my Christian journey, I have been an integral part of mini-churches, medium churches, and mega churches. They all have one thing in common, the need for refreshing — a total re-immersion in truth. With rare exception, their spiritual virility has been stunted from gross materialism, traditionalism, paganism, commercialism, political correctness, a general spiritual malaise, and an epic spiritual identity crisis. I want to serve as a fulcrum for returning to what we are called by God to be, “a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, [and] a peculiar people” (1Peter 2:9). My express desire is to bring God to people, to bring people to God, and to bring God’s people together. If you feel the same way, then I invite you to follow me as I journey onward in my quest to please, model, and glorify Jesus Christ. I’ll give you my name soon. But for now, you may refer to me as newjudah, or JEDi, an acronym which has special meaning to me.
