quest web 2.0

The tech geeks were embarrassed with our old site and wanted to utilize some fancy but user friendly platform called Drupal.  So, Jason Rust, one of our interns and a professional web developer, took it upon himself to give birth to Quest 2.0.  Without further ado, here’s the beta version of our church’s new website.  *And if you know of folks who might be interested in our church community, please forward this link or the church website to them.

Quest 2.0 will make it easier for new visitors and church members to find the latest information about Quest. To that end we’ve made the site much easier for all the staff to update so expect to see more frequent updates.  It’s also easier for you to use: you can now sign up (or unsubscribe) to the church eNews online, you can listen to the sermons online or subscribe to the sermons as a podcast, and see a calendar of all the upcoming events.

Additionally, we have implemented some features to create more of an online community for Quest members. For church attenders there are now forums, a church directory, and church classifieds. If you’re a regular attender to Quest go ahead and sign up for an account so you can start using these additional features.

So, poke around and see what’s new, and let Jason know if you find bugs that we can help squash.  There’s still some things we need to tweak around so we need some folks to give us some assistance.

If you’re looking for a professional for “intelligent web based solutions” – Jason is the man.  His services, portfolio, and contact info can be found on his company’s website: rusted code.   Thanks Jason!

    It looks great Eugene. I love to Micah 6:8 verse on the wall. We are running trips with YWAM this summer and it is all surrounding Micah 6:8. I hope things went good this weekend with The conference.

Father, please bless and protect these Iraqi and Syrian "refugee" children that have already endured so much. Protect their hearts and mind from unfathomable trauma. Plant seeds of hope and vision in their lives. And as we pray for them, teach us how to advocate for them. Amen. "We don't call them refugees. We call them relatives. We don't call them camps but centers. Dignity is so important." -  local Iraqi priest whose church has welcomed many "relatives" to their church's property

It's always a privilege to be invited into peoples' home for tea - even if it's a temporary tent. This is an extended Yezidi family that fled the Mosul, Iraq area because of ISIS. It's indeed true that Christians were targeted by ISIS and thatbstory muat be shared but other minority groups like the Yezidis were also targeted. Some of their heartbreaking stories included the kidnapping of their sister. They shared that their father passed away shortly of a "broken heart." The conversation was emotional but afterwards, we asked each other for permission to take photos. Once the selfies came out, the real smiles came out.

So friends: Pray for Iraq. Pray for the persecuted Church. Pray for Christians, minority groups like the Yezidis who fear they will e completely wiped out in the Middle East,, and Muslims alike who are all suffering under ISIS. Friends: I'm traveling in the Middle East this week - Iraq, Lebanon, and Jordan. (Make sure you follow my pics/stories on IG stories). Specifically, I'm here representing @onedayswages to meet, learn, and listen to pastors, local leaders, NGOs, and of course directly from refugees from within these countries - including many from Syria.

For security purposes, I haven't been able to share at all but I'm now able to start sharing some photos and stories. For now, I'll be sharing numerous photos through my IG stories and will be sharing some longer written pieces in couple months when ODW launches another wave of partnerships to come alongside refugees in these areas. Four of us are traveling together also for the purpose of creating a short documentary that we hope to release early next year.

While I'm on my church sabbatical, it's truly a privilege to be able to come to these countries and to meet local pastors and indigenous leaders that tirelessly pursue peace and justice, and to hear directly from refugees. I've read so many various articles and pieces over the years and I thought I was prepared but it has been jarring, heartbreaking,  and gut wrenching. In the midst of such chaos, there's hope but there's also a lot of questions, too.

I hope you follow along as I share photos, stories, and help release this mini-documentary. Please tag friends that might be interested.

Please pray for safety, for empathy, for humility and integrity, for divine meetings. Pray that we listen well; To be present and not just be a consumer of these vulnerable stories. That's my biggest prayer.

Special thanks to @worldvisionusa and @worldrelief for hosting us on this journey. 9/11
Never forget.
And never stop working for peace.

Today, I had some gut wrenching and heart breaking conversations about war, violence, and peacemaking. Mostly, I listened. Never in my wildest imagination did I envision having these conversations on 9/11 of all days. I wish I could share more now but I hope to later after I process them for a few days.

But indeed: Never forget.
And never stop working for peace.
May it be so. Amen. Mount Rainier is simply epic. There's nothing like flying in and out of Seattle.

#northwestisbest Took a train to Busan. Did not encounter any zombies but I was ready just in case.

Busan. First visit to this city (couple weeks ago) and was blown away by its beauty. Also, shocked that it has become the fifth largest containment port city in the world. That's a lot of import and export.
