I first started writing when my friend Pavi Thomas asked me to blog. I remember struggling to write one or two entries per week. But now I blog six times a week. I enjoy writing now and am seeking to improve on my craft. I have much to learn, but I am enjoying the journey.
As I have entered into formal education, my writing has increased. I have written numerous papers, a short book and recently finished my first full book with InterVarsity Press entitled Creating a Missional Culture, which puts some of my best thoughts all in one place. I have written articles for Leadership Journal, Evangelical Missions Quarterly (EMQ) and Religious Studies Review (RSR). Below is a sample of some of my published work, unpublished work and online articles.
- Creating a Missional Culture: Equipping the Church for the Sake of the World (Author) – InterVarsity Press, 2012.
- Waiting for the Light: An Advent Devotional (Contributor) – Mustard Seed, 2011.
- ViralHope: Good News from the Urbs to the Burbs (and everything inbetween) (Editor and Contributor) – Ecclesia Press, 2010.
