LUTC Quarterly: Kingdom in Business

Each of our quarterly gatherings for the past three years focused on several issues we initially prayed for in our 40 Days of prayer in 2014. We are now shifting our focus to the different sectors or "roots" of our societal fabric. We kicked off 2018 by praying the first 10 days for these different sectors, with the belief that God places each of us in these spheres to advance his Kingdom. Ministry is not confined to places of worship (e.g. churches), but extends by grace to the places we are naturally drawn- if you are a banker, then bank for the Lord. If you are a small business owner, then operate for the Lord. Pastoring, discipling, shepherding and stewarding are not limited by certain

We kicked off 2018 by praying  the first 10 days for these different sectors, with the belief that God places each of us in these spheres to advance his Kingdom.

Saturate The Sound

What God has done to us, He wants to do through us. We have the Spirit of God in us so that we might be empowered, just as Jesus was. We are His missionaries, filled and anointed by His Spirit. If you have the Spirit of God, you are a missionary sent by Jesus to tell the world who He is and what He has done. Charles Spurgeon said, “Every Christian is either a missionary or an imposter.” Everywhere you go, whatever you do, you are a missionary sent by Jesus to love like Jesus, overcome sin like Jesus, proclaim the gospel like Jesus, and see people’s lives changed by the power of the Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead. You are always on mission. Every part of your life, every activity and

Brave: You Are Not Alone

If we can convey one message to teen girls in vulnerable situations like foster care, it would be, “you are not alone.” Girls in the foster care system live in a world which oftentimes broadcasts the narrative: they do not matter, their hurts are not important, and their stories are already written. On May 5th, 2018 we are hosting a 2nd annual Brave event for girls ages 12-18 at Seattle Pacific University. The goal of the Brave event is to show these girls they do matter. No matter what has happened in their lives, they do not have to be defined by who they were or what has been done to them. They can walk with their heads held high knowing that life can be great, even if it has not been gre

An Hour of Prayer

At Seattle’s Union Gospel Mission, the internship program Serve Seattle hosts a week of prayer each spring. The chapel in the Serve Seattle house sets up different prayer stations and Mission staff, community members, volunteers, and interns sign up online for one-hour time slots to cover the entire week in 24/7 prayer for our community. The stations around the room include: a music station, a map to pray over cities, a praying through the bible, a cross as well as others. I enjoy praying through each station and am amazed how quickly an hour passes as you spend time praying for specific people and places. The art station is my favorite of the prayer stations, which includes crayons, w
