What if our western view of church isn’t God’s view of church?
That’s the disruptive question church planter Bob Roberts Jr. wrestled with while connecting with top global church planters and pastors. Over time, his global experiences convinced him western believers would benefit from:
taking our faith beyond Sunday to every dimension of life;
shifting from a Christian worldview to a Jesus prism; and
moving from religious leaders to disciple leaders.
Lessons from the East invites you into the larger story God is telling around the world. It just may change your view of church and the global Christian community.
Bob Roberts Jr. is the founding pastor of NorthWood Church in the Dallas / Fort Worth area who has been involved in helping plant over 200 churches. His church and the other Western churches Bob has helped start have done global engagement in Australia, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Syria, Egypt, Vietnam, Belize, Brazil, Kenya, Nigeria, Mexico, and Nepal. He is a graduate of Fuller Seminary (D.Min.). Bob and his wife have two children.
