About eXtraordinaries
Written by Ben Cheek

What is an eXtraordinary?

eXtraordinariesWhen Jesus picked followers to look after his movement and his mission, he chose every-day ordinary people who had no special training or education.  He took these people on a journey that converted them into some of the most extraordinary change-agents the world has ever seen.  These regular people turned the whole world upside down as they brought God's realty into existence around them.

Are you an "ordinary" person called to follow Jesus in extraordinary ways?  We think every disciple of Christ is.  Because of this, MetroSoul would like to help you become an eXtraordinary.  eXtraordinaries are people who have learned to walk with Jesus in all areas of their life: personal, relational, occupational, and spiritual.  They have training to apply Gospel principles to their personal lives, homes, communities, friends, and workplace.

Pioneering Expectations

Where's the LoveAmerican Christianity is criticized so broadly and often that the phraseology is already cliché. This reinforces the sentiment that I have expressed here and elsewhere that our culture believes that at least Christendom — the culture of Christianity — and maybe Christianity itself has failed. We believe it so much so that even within the religion there is now a feverish attempt to wake a church that is assumed to be sleeping, or worse, apostate (or else, why are we declining?). Much of the objections of our culture have to do with church more than Jesus (see comments in “500 Pound Gorilla“) and so 22 million Americans claim some kind of belief in Jesus but no church attendance or loyalty to “organized religion” (see Barna’s Original at:

FJ1: The 500 Pound Gorilla
Written by soulster   
Thursday, 09 August 2007

This is the first post in a series called Following Jesus.

500 pound gorillaThere is a 500-pound gorilla in the room. Can you feel him? He lurks in the shadows of our churches. When we look in our rear view mirrors on the way to work, he stares back. We can hear him give the occasional bored grunt from the next cubicle over at work. From sidewalks and grocery lines he glares accusingly, menacingly. He stubbornly takes up half the coach at home. You can almost feel his hot breath on your shoulder as you read this.

I was invited to speak at a conference of campus ministers a few days ago (see NCMS website). God had impressed upon me this deep sense that I should be there to listen. So I talked to the leaders...

Discovering the Body: Part I
Written by Jared Looney   
Tuesday, 21 August 2007
At the beginning of 2006, my family spent 5 weeks on a sabbatical in Costa Rica.  I spent significant time in meditation of Scripture beginning in Ephesians.  I was particularly interested in a study of the church (ecclesiology) and its nature.  As a personal journey, this is not new, but I wanted deeper insight into the functioning of Christ’s body.  I hoped to gain understanding that would be practical, especially for our faith communities in the Bronx.  I wanted to let go of my personal comforts and do my best to let Scripture tell the story.  At times I wrestled with the text.  I do realize that for some these won’t be new ideas, but if I had any doubts concerning the relational nature of the church, they faded during these weeks.  As a result, I grew in my desire to summarize this study for the faith communities that I serve.  This writing is a result of this study, and I hope that it serves as a resource for deeper understanding and community life.
