Prayward

Doxalyst is focused on vital disciple-making movements which saturate entire communities and cities with the good news of Jesus Christ. Media strategies and technology tools are simply a means to bring this about more quickly and effectively. One of the key, indispensable elements needed for such movements to flourish is focused, ongoing prayer.  Read

I’m challenged to relate the vision God has been shaping in me… in under 500 pages. In many ways, I’m still learning to express it: to find the words that will communicate, and the boldness to write them.

I’ll be with a team working to make disciples who make disciples in immigrant communities. Many of these people are lost in a deceptive religion of shame and fear. And from this context, I’ll be pursuing the vision God’s given me for developing technology tools and media strategies to accelerate the growth of discipleship movements in communities and cities around the world.  Read
