The overall purpose of Brethren for Biblical Authority is to provide a networking opportunity for like-minded leaders & churches within the Church of the Brethren. The Theological viewpoint for "B4BA" can be seen on the Faith Statement & supporters tab above.

A B4BA goal is to move beyond the distractions & struggles of the denomination and THRIVE, in spite of what's happening in the COB.

Moving On

I really do want to talk about other things. For the moment, I am in the middle of a set of messages called, "Fixing the Broken Church." I was blessed to receive a ton of books and from a wonderful brother who grew up in the COB. He is now in the world of church consulting, but wanted to help me. So, he sends me lots of useful information.

After studying various topics over the Summer, I came up with a list of things that we could be doing to make our ministries more effective. So, I offer you, Fixing the Broken Church:

Message One - "Lose the List" (Do we have a list? written or unwritten regarding who is welcome)

Message Two - "Not Guilty" (Guilt trips don't work. Love is Motivation)

Message Three - "Outsourcing" (The importance of parents teaching about faith at home, and not outsourcing all their children's spiritual needs to the church)

Message Four - "Man Factory" Challenges men to step up to their posts as Spiritual leaders in their homes & then other places.

The order is backward on the player, because it put the most recent message on top.
