Clean Water Project

Austin City Life recently funded the Clean Water Project developed by Restoring the Way ministries. Together with our friend Aaron Gross, we were able to see 12 Bio-Sand Water filters distributed to the poor across our Texas border. Aaron pioneered this project and will be making another trip to El Plomo, Mexico to deliver more filters. Check out the cool video he made of the trip.

Fight Clubs @ Resurgence

Over the next three days, The Resurgence will run three excerpts from my forthcoming book Fight Clubs: Gospel-centered Discipleship. I’m excited to announce that on August 1st the booklet will be available in three forms:

  • eBooklet Download
  • Print on Demand @ LuLu
  • Online Viewing

Check out the first excerpt here. Keep an eye out for the Fight Club website. Also, check out the unrelated but a similar vision of gospel-centered discipleship, which focuses on men at the Fight Club conference, hosted by an Acts 29 Church.
