For The Church exists to engage, encourage, and equip the Church with gospel-centered resources that are pastoral, practical, merciful, and devotional.
For The Church seeks to serve current and future ministry leaders as well as mature lay leaders in the church. We will primarily feature resources that speak directly to issues in ministry and to the heart of pastors or other ministers and lay leaders.
We seek by God’s grace to equip our readers practically in matters of church ministry and the Christian life by featuring resources that help them study the Bible, lead teams, bless volunteers, battle, raise children, love spouses, and hundreds of other matters important to fleshing out their faith.
For The Church also exists for those to whom the Lord’s heart is especially drawn – the afflicted. We will seek to not only provide resources that demonstrate the merciful heart of Christ to a hurting world, but also to encourage readers to share Christ in word and in deed to the orphan, refugee, widow, and others in affliction because we serve the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction.
Because we don’t mean to be simply informational but exultational, For The Church places a high premium on content that revels in the excellencies of Christ and helps readers center on and celebrate his finished work. In this vein, we will feature grace-drenched reflections on Bible passages, personal testimonies, theological ideas, and spiritual living.
In all that we do, we seek the magnification of Christ in the Church and in the world through the Church. For this reason, every resource must be tied to Christ’s good news, because the Spirit working in and through the gospel is what has made the Church in the first place. To be For The Church means being intently, persistently, stubbornly, and eternally for the gospel, because the Spirit working in and through the gospel is what sustains and sanctifies the Church.
