Today through Friday, I will be in Huntsville, AL for the GCM Collective National Conference.  If you are unfamiliar with the GCM Collective, I encourage you to check out their website and join their online community. Their vision is simple, and I love it:

A gospel community is a group of believers that lives out the mission of God together as family, in a specific area to a particular people group, by declaring and demonstrating the gospel in tangible forms. Regular people, living ordinary lives, with great gospel intentionality. The GCM Collective is a community that allows people to exchange ideas, resources and encouragement around topics that relate to creating gospel communities on mission.

The guys behind the GCM Collective (Steve Timmis, Tim Chester, Jeff Vanderstelt, Drew Goodmanson, Caesar Kalinowski, David Fairchild, and Jonathan Dodson) have all challenged and helped me in tremendous ways in recent years, probably more than any other group outside my fellow elders.  These brothers are gospel-driven practitioners who are leading churches to embrace a missional ecclesiology that is both healthy and fruitful.
