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.

More about me, music on my iPod, favorite links and friends in the blogoshpere.

    Books Beside My Bed

    • 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.

    • Bruce Tulgan: Not Everyone Gets A Trophy: How to Manage Generation Y

      Bruce Tulgan: Not Everyone Gets A Trophy: How to Manage Generation Y
      An increasingly common topic I hear at gatherings of pastors over 45 - "how do I manage my under-35 staff? Are their work habits quirky for their generation or just poor?" God keeps gifting Lake Forest with killer under 35 staff - I want us to be good stewards of their vocational development, so picked this book up when someone I trust recommended it.

    • David T. Lamb: God Behaving Badly: Is the God of the Old Testament Angry, Sexist and Racist?

      David T. Lamb: God Behaving Badly: Is the God of the Old Testament Angry, Sexist and Racist?
      I can't wait to dig into this. A former college minister asks and answers the questions: Is the God of the Old Testament Angry, Sexist and Racist?

    • 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.

    • John Of The Cross: The Living Flame of Love (Classic Reprint)

      John Of The Cross: The Living Flame of Love (Classic Reprint)
      I'm a both/and guy, including Christian mysticism + Reformed theology. I am only just now reading St. John of the Cross' account of his own experiences of union with the Divine (which he says is only given after previous stages of spiritual privation). What took me so long? I recognize as my own some of his descriptions of what it means for the Spirit to burn like 'a living flame of love' in my spirit.

    • Malcolm Gladwell: David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants

      Malcolm Gladwell: David and Goliath: Underdogs, Misfits, and the Art of Battling Giants
      Fascinating reading. Gladwell always looks at things from a different angle.

    • Jerry Trousdale: Miraculous Movements: How Hundreds of Thousands of Muslims Are Falling in Love with Jesus

      Jerry Trousdale: Miraculous Movements: How Hundreds of Thousands of Muslims Are Falling in Love with Jesus
      I keep hearing snippets of people saying 'there is a great underground movement toward Jesus in Muslim cultures,' so I'm reading this, Hoping to help coach our newest LFC missionaries in church planting among a Muslim people group. This book is about: "How do the people most resistant to the transformative power of the gospel come to be its most devoted followers? Miraculous Movement recounts an amazing change taking place within Muslim communities where the truth of Jesus Christ is turning around the lives of many thousands of Muslims from more than twenty people groups."

    • 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.
