ABOUT ME

I'm Dr. Mike Moses, founder and lead pastor of Lake Forest Church in Huntersville, NC.

Open Mike is a forum where I am more open than my sermons, and I interact with you over a fresh imagining of what it means to follow Jesus.

    Books Beside My Bed

    • Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America: My Orthodox Prayer Book

      Greek Orthodox Archdiocese of America: My Orthodox Prayer Book
      A collection of the best, practical prayers in Orthodoxy for morning, evening, meals and other ordinary aspects of life. It fits in your pocket.

    • Charles Taylor: A Secular Age

      Charles Taylor: A Secular Age
      Blowing my mind, both the massive amount of history that is analyzed in this book, and the sheer brilliance of the author (every other page I think, "I'm an idiot"). Honestly, I can't yet describe what this book is about...

    • : Praying the Hours in Ordinary Life: (Art for Faith's Sake) by Farrer, Lauralee (2010) Paperback

      Praying the Hours in Ordinary Life: (Art for Faith's Sake) by Farrer, Lauralee (2010) Paperback
      If you're interested in learning about 'Praying the Hours/Offices' and trying it, GET THIS BOOK. In brief format, the history and practice of this type of prayer is explained. The reader is tutored in its various methods (such as how to chant scripture), then given examples to use. I used the content for the 8 daily offices in this book each day during my prayer retreat in Greece.

    • Thomas Merton: Thoughts In Solitude

      Thomas Merton: Thoughts In Solitude
      Merton is one of the few most influential spiritual and Christian thinkers and writers of the 20th century, and he was a modern-day monk. Raised in New York City, an intellectual and scholar, whose solitude was used by God to provide clarity and guidance to millions. Unblinkingly Christ-centered, with a prophet's ability to unmask modern culture - this is a gem about the value of solitude in our lives.

    • Protopresbyter Fr. George D. Metallinos: The Way, an Introduction to the Orthodox Faith

      Protopresbyter Fr. George D. Metallinos: The Way, an Introduction to the Orthodox Faith
      This was commissioned and published by one of the small Greek monasteries I visited, where I bought it. Gives insight into the distinctives of Orthodox theology, which I greatly admire.

    • Phyllis Tickle: The Divine Hours (Volume Three): Prayers for Springtime: A Manual for Prayer (Tickle, Phyllis)

      Phyllis Tickle: The Divine Hours (Volume Three): Prayers for Springtime: A Manual for Prayer (Tickle, Phyllis)
      This book gives meaty content to pray the three recommended 'prayer offices' daily for us non-monks, for a quarter of the year. I'm using it a bit now that I'm back from my trip (not shooting for three offices a day, but one of the three each day in May). This was a gift for my trip from Aron Gibson.

    • Glenn T. Stanton: Loving My (LGBT) Neighbor: Being Friends in Grace and Truth

      Glenn T. Stanton: Loving My (LGBT) Neighbor: Being Friends in Grace and Truth
      A friend recommended this and its been helpful so far. From the back cover: "(this book) is a wise, compassionate, practical and thoroughly biblical guide for followers of Christ seeking to navigate some of the most challenging issues of our time in grace and truth."

    • Craig Ott: Global Church Planting: Biblical Principles and Best Practices for Multiplication

      Craig Ott: Global Church Planting: Biblical Principles and Best Practices for Multiplication
      I'm getting primed to teach my Church Planting class at Gordon-Conwell this winter/spring, and getting excited about the ramp up next year of an EPC Church Planter Training Residency program at Lake Forest.

    • Thom S. Rainer: Autopsy of a Deceased Church: 12 Ways to Keep Yours Alive

      Thom S. Rainer: Autopsy of a Deceased Church: 12 Ways to Keep Yours Alive
      I'm slowly perusing this. We're having Rainer as the one day workshop speaker at next June's national EPC meeting - a focus on helping plateaued or declining churches recapture health. Thom has been greatly used by God to do just that for decades now.

    • Mike Kuhn: Fresh Vision for the Muslim World

      Mike Kuhn: Fresh Vision for the Muslim World
      I'm about to start this book on incarnational witness in the Muslim World, as I pray for and strategize with our newest LFC missionaries for mercy ministry and church planting among a Muslim population.

    • Angie Moses: Flying Home

      Angie Moses: Flying Home
      My wife Angie just published her first novel! #1 I'm proud of her. #2 It's stinkin' good (tension between dreams and duty for a young mother). #3 This book will never be published and stocked in a 'Christian' bookstore with the picture of a beatific looking prairie woman on the front wearing a bonnet - there's grittiness of real life like happens to real people, and perhaps some grace. #4 This link is to the Kindle version, look below for paperback also. #5 Angie had in mind precisely the type of 'given up on church but not on God' folks we love so much to welcome at Lake Forest as she wrote.
