Hi, there! I'm Markus. I'm the pastor of Northminster Presbyterian Church in San Diego, California. I'm currently working toward a Doctor of Ministry degree at Fuller Theological Seminary in the area of Missional Leadership, studying under Alan Roxburgh and Mark Lau Branson.
I call my blog "StretchyChurch" because I believe the Church needs to be, well... stretchy!
For a church to get stuck in it's ways--whether those ways are 100 years old or only 10 years old--is death for a church.
Our world is constantly changing. Our culture is changing. The generations are changing. And, while God never changes, God is certainly always up to doing new things.
A church must be stretchy in order to keep up with what God is up to in a constantly changing world.
If you are involved in church leadership or if you are simply passionate about what God is up to, then this blog is for you.
I post about once or twice a week. If you want to keep up with new posts, you can subscribe to my RSS feed. You can also follow me on Twitter, where I'll not only announce new posts, but also share other fun and helpful stuff.
