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.

In our culture, we can be so obsessed with the "spectacular" or "glamorous." The Church often engagws in thia language and paradigm...but what if God has called many of us to small, ordinary things?

Will we still be faithful?
Will we still go about such things with great love and joy?

I recently came across this picture taken by @mattylew, one of our church staff...and I started tearing up: This is my mother; in her 70s; with realities of some disabilities that make it difficult for her to stand up and sit down...but here she is on her knees and prostate in prayer. She doesn't have any social media accounts, barely knows how to use her smartphone, doesn't have a platform, hasn't written a book, doesn't have any titles in our church, isn't listed as a leader or an expert or a consultant or a guru. But she simply seeks to do her best - by God's grace - to be faithful to God. She prays for hours every day inteceding for our family, our church, and the larger world.

Even if we're not noticed or celebrated or elevated...let's be faithful. Our greatest calling as followers of Christ is to be faithful. Not spectacular. Not glamorous. Not popular. Not relevant. And not even successful in the eyes of the world.

Be faithful. Amen. #notetoself (and maybe helpful for someone else)

At times, we have to say ‘NO’ to good things to say ‘YES’ to the most important things.

We can't do it all.
Pray and choose wisely.
Then invest deeply. May our compassion not just be limited to the West or to those that look like us. Lifting up the people of Iraq, Iran, and Kurdistan in prayer after the 7.3 earthquake - including the many new friends I met on a recent trip to Iraq.

The death toll rises to over 400 and over 7,000 injured in multiple cities and hundreds of villages along the Western border with Iraq.

Lord, in your mercy... We are reminded again and again...that we are Resurrection People living in a Dark Friday world.

It's been a tough, emotional, and painful week - especially as we lament the horrible tragedy of the church shootings at Sutherland Springs. In the midst of this lament, I've been carried by the hope, beauty, and promise of our baptisms last Sunday and the raw and honest testimonies of God's mercy, love, and grace.

Indeed, God is not yet done. May we take heart for Christ has overcome the world. "Without genuine relationships with the poor, we rob them of their dignity and they become mere projects. And God did not intend for anyone to become our projects." Grateful this quote from my book, Overrated, is resonating with so many folks - individuals and  NGOs. / design by @preemptivelove .
May we keep working 
on ourselves 
even as we seek 
to change the world. 
To be about the latter 
without the former 
is the great temptation 
of our times.
