Pray for Our City

Posted by Dave Clayton on

One of my favorite passages in scripture is found in Jeremiah 29. The people of God have been begging God to bring them out of exile, and God sends them a prophecy that surely caught them a bit off guard. Through the prophet Jeremiah God says: "Build houses and settle down; plant gardens and...

Jesus in the Streets

Posted by Dave Clayton on

Once a month, all of our house churches push pause on our weekly meetings and instead of meeting in a home we spend time just being the church. It is really inspiring to see all of the creative ways our house churches choose to serve the people of our city. Last night hundreds of you rolled up...

A Story from Katie

Posted by Dave Clayton on

If you have been around Ethos for any time at all then you have probably met Katie Stevens, Lindsay Preston, and Matt Preston (note they are brother and sister not married). If you don't know them, you can usually find them somewhere around the welcome table greeting visitors as people arrive...

Becoming Less

Posted by Dave Clayton on

John the Baptist was a pretty amazing dude. Periodically I try to think about what John the Baptist would look like in 2009. Would he still be sporting the Camel Hair Blazer, eating bugs, and preaching with the fire of a fundamentalist, small town, southern Baptist preacher? Who knows. But I...

This week as I have been studying for my sermon in Acts 20 , I have found myself spending a lot of time in the Book of Ezekial. I know that sounds random, but Paul refers to Ezekial several times during his farewell speech in Acts 20. Anyways, one of the passages in Ezekial has really challenged...

The other night, I was on campus with Brandon. We had both spoken on a panel that went fairly well. Afterwards, we had to rush over to a training session for a mission team we are leading in a few months. It was late. I had been on campus for 13 straight hours. I can honestly say that patience...

Colossians 2:15

Posted by Dave Clayton on

I hope you guys have enjoyed reading through Colossians this week. If you haven't been reading along with us, you should read it today. What a great book. Nearly every verse has kind of kicked me in the stomach (in a good way, of course). One of the reasons I have liked reading through...
