Action Resources

One of the goals of Reach Action is to be an educational training ministry that helps equip followers of Jesus on how to respond biblically to the challenges we face in being salt and light in a dark, fallen world. After our country was thrown into chaos (like a well-placed, time bomb) after the George Floyd incident in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on May 25, 2020, I was shocked by the educational response and resources provided by “professing followers of Jesus” as to how we should respond to the chaos (riots and calls for social justice). After reading some of the advice…

Help Myanmar

Dear Friends, I was contacted by a pastor friend who runs an orphanage in the country of Myanmar on 7/7 with an urgent request – he communicated that food shortage was becoming a problem because of the civil war and covid – 19 resurgences in his country and asked if I could help. I told him I would personally contribute and spread the word regarding his situation. As I read Richard’s email. it reminded me of the Apostle Paul’s request to the saints in his day to join him in financially supporting their brothers and sisters in Judea who faced…

Reach Action Plan

The first and most important aspect of the Reach Action Plan is the Reach Initiative which is summed up in the Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20) and the Great Commandment (Matt. 22:36-39). The second part of the Reach Action Plan is Social Involvement. As followers of Jesus, we are called to not only reach people with the Gospel, we are also called to love them with the same love God bestows upon us (John 13:34-35). One of the primary focuses of Reach Action is helping people take the next step out of poverty and ensuring that everyone regardless of race, gender,…

Reach Initiative

Welcome to the Reach Initiative Page! A Reach Initiative is a comprehensive plan for reaching your community with the love and Gospel of Jesus. A Reach Initiative is a Pastor’s led initiative where the Pastor and leadership team make reaching their communities with the love and Gospel of Jesus the priority of the Church. The Reach Initiative is the most important step in the Reach Action Plan because the Gospel is the only way God transforms lives; and transformed lives transform communities. The Reach Initiative is outlined in Reach 3-2-1 Part 4 and is predicated on followers of Jesus being equipped…

Gospel Implications

The Gospel has personal and social implications. Personally, it transforms our life; socially, it transforms our communities. Statistically, 2-5% of professing followers of Jesus share the Gospel[1], which means that 98-95% do not. The question is do these statistics have personal and social consequences? The answer is yes. Personally, many Christians would say that there seems to be something missing in their Christian experience. There’s a common feeling that there must be more to their Christian life than they are experiencing and they would be right. Jesus said that He came that they may have life and have it abundantly…

Abundant Life

As followers of Jesus, we are called to reach our communities with the Gospel (Great Commission – Mt. 28:18-20). Sadly, the statistics[1] say that only 2-5% of Christians share the Gospel. This means that 95-98% are not reaching their communities with the Gospel. Is this lack of obedience to the Great Commission directly linked to the Laodicean climate of the church and the chaos in our culture (communities)? I believe it is. Jesus said that He came that we might have life, and have it abundantly (John 10:10b). I believe that the Great Commandment (Mt. 22:36-40) and the Great Commission…

The Culture in the Church

The current culture in many churches has sadly been one of failing to fulfill God’s Great Commission (Matt. 28:18-20). Statistics[1] reveal that very few followers of Jesus (2-5%) are regularly about the King’s (Jesus) business of making disciples. This means that 95-98% are not following Jesus His way. That’s astounding and alarming! Is it possible that the chaos we see and experience in our culture (world) is connected to these statistics? Does anything (government, education, businesses, teams) work and thrive when 95-98% are not doing what they’re supposed to be doing? I believe the answer is painfully yes. I believe…
