Some years ago, we collaborated on compiling a list of the 25 most popular Church of Christ blogs three or four times. (It was a WHOLE lot of work.) And I found someone who loves an Excel spreadsheet almost as much as I do. It was fun.
More recently, when Keith Brenton decided to step down from editing New Wineskins, I urged Matt to take the editorship on. I figured the magazine needed young, vigorous, smart, creative management — and that’s Matt. I’m thrilled that he agreed to take the task on, even though he’s also in the middle of moving to California. (Oh, to be young again.)
Matt puts together just all kinds of remarkable lessons at his blog. I’ve been particularly impressed with his series on helping lead a church to become more evangelistic. The series starts with Have We Lost Our Love for the Lost? (The link will take you to a listing of articles by Matt on evangelism. Start there and then click the links for “Newer Posts” way down at the bottom to continue through to his most recent articles.)
I highly recommend this series. From my time spent lurking in his comment section, it’s clear that several other churches are using his materials to great effect.
