Sure, the gospel is necessary for our conversion, but what role does it play after that? How does it shape our everyday lives? Pastor and author J.D. Greear has answered a few questions for us on this very topic. J.D. is a pastor at The Summit Church in Raleigh-Durham, North Carolina, as well as an author and a blogger. J.D.’s book Gospel is particularly relevant to the topic of our upcoming Secret Church 14, “The Cross and Everyday Life.” That’s why we’re grateful he agreed to answer the following questions…. 1. How should a recovery of

John Piper talks about how his sleeping habits affect him in the fight of faith: ” … I am emotionally less resilient when I lose sleep. There were early days when I could work without regard to sleep and feel energized and motivated. In more recent years my threshold for despondency is lower on less sleep.

If you’re hosting a Secret Church simulcast, you’ll want to start getting the word out about it fairly soon if you haven’t already begun. Especially if you are hosting as a church, it’s a good idea to begin letting people know about the simulcast so they can plan accordingly.

Here are some ideas to help you get thinking on how you can

We don’t usually think about busyness as a spiritual issue, but as pastor and author Kevin DeYoung reminds us in his latest book, Crazy Busy , we need to stop and consider what is for many believers today a massive problem. Kevin is a pastor at University Reformed Church in East Lansing, Michigan. He has authored several books and his blog over at TGC - “ DeYoung, Restless, and Reformed ” – is worth visiting regularly. The fact that busyness affects how we follow Jesus on an everyday basis makes it extremely relevant to our upcoming Secret Church 14, “ The Cross and Everyday Life .”

First Corinthians 10:31 encourages us to glorify God in whatever we do, but for many, seeing their daily tasks as holy endeavors doesn’t compute. Whether you feel like you’re stuck pushing paper or pushing a broom, it’s often tempting to view your job as a necessary evil that you must get through in order to reach 5 p.m. on Friday. Secret Church 14, “The Cross and Everyday Life,” will seek to address this and a host of other topics that often fall into the “unspiritual” category of our lives. Join us via simulcast this Good Friday, April 18th. In

We are excited to announce that this year, our Secret Church prayer focus will be the Turks and Kurds of Turkey. We’re excited to learn about these people groups with you over the coming months so that we can pray for them and the believers who live and work among them.
