Jesus' Economy Tour Update: Canceled for Now


As many of you know, John and I have dedicated our lives to the mission of Jesus' Economy—so much so that, through prayer and discernment, we decided to sell our home and 90 percent of our belongings so that we could be mobile for the Lord. 

God called us on an unforgettable journey to spread the gospel and the message of how best to help the impoverished throughout the U.S. We called it the "Jesus' Economy Tour."

But, about one week into the tour we found ourselves heartbroken and confused, feeling like God was calling us back home. 

The day after our return to Bellingham, Washington, my grandfather—who was suffering from cancer that had spread throughout his body—passed on to heaven. We were able to be there to lead a worship service at his bedside.

We now see that God had called us home to minister to our family during this difficult time. 

God also allowed us to see that many of the doors we thought were open to partner with churches in community development, were in fact, closed for now. And that living on the road, even at camping sites, is significantly more expensive than staying in one spot. While we did all this on our personal finances, all money is God's money and we knew that He must have a better way. 

So we are back on our knees in prayer again, asking that God would show us a new vision for His Church and where He wants us to live.

We are more committed than ever to bringing the gospel to the hurting and to help churches transform their communities. 

Please join us in prayer as we discern where God is calling us, which church communities we could partner with, and the best ways to fulfill God's vision for Jesus' Economy and Resurrect Church Movement.

Thank you and God Bless,
