Gateway on Mission: The Tennants are heading to Ecuador

10653643_10203793130201684_4941057030452860638_nIn early January 2015 the Tennant family will be moving to the Napo region of Ecuador to begin work with Global Orphan Initiative in establishing a children’s home for at-risk and orphaned children. The orphanage will be called “The Oasis” and will include the founding of a church on the property, located in an area that has little or no Christian influence. They will be one of up to six families living on the property and caring for a number of children that will be placed in their home.

You can find the Tennants on Facebook at “Obligado Por El Amor De Cristo!” or follow their blog at

Go Deeper: Those Who Are Outside

Colossians: Go DeeperAfter spending all summer in the book of Colossians, we reach the final chapter today! We have been challenged to go deeper in so many ways. We have been reminded that Christ is not just part of our lives, but He is our life! We’ve come face to face with the preeminence and centrality of Christ in all things. We’ve been challenged to live a transformed life, and been given beautiful pictures of what that life looks like in our everyday lives. As Paul nears his final words to this church, he returns to the mission that has consumed his life. We are reminded in chapter 4 that it is very important how we pass on this incredible message of the gospel to others. He reminds us that there are “outsiders”, or those that are still unchanged and unforgiven. In this chapter, Paul describes in great detail how we are to relate and communicate to a world that desperately needs Jesus. Isn’t this one of our great challenges? How can we pass on this truth, this relationship that has changed our lives, and do it in a way that draws people to Jesus instead of pushing them away? Paul gives us a blueprint of how we relate to the culture around us. It doesn’t look like you might think. Here’s a hint: It involves more than just words and there is no time to waste!
