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.

      Naomi K. Paget: The Work of the Chaplain (Work of the Church)
      Given me by Jesse McLeod as helpful background as he and I co-lead a men's group of Huntersville Police officers. I'm loving getting to know these men, and more about their unique and high calling.

    • Dallas Willard: The Spirit of the Disciplines: Understanding How God Changes Lives

      Dallas Willard: The Spirit of the Disciplines: Understanding How God Changes Lives
      I pulled out this dear old companion and re-read it in July, in preparation for our current sermon series. Glorious.

    • Daniel Silva: The Black Widow

      Daniel Silva: The Black Widow
      My favorite spy novel series just published a new one, yippee. Excellent spy/thriller fiction, with real politik about the middle east. if you dig it, you should probably start with the first one.

    • Gary Keller: The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results

      Gary Keller: The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results
      Powerful principles for living an effective, on purpose life. I am in need personally of simplification and clarity regarding my use of time. Thank you to Audie Cashion, who is an expert trainer on this material, for giving me this book. I'm praying for greater effectiveness AND life balance this fall in my life and leadership. GET THIS BOOK NOW or schedule coaching time with Audie.

    • Wesley Hill: Spiritual Friendship: Finding Love in the Church as a Celibate Gay Christian

      Wesley Hill: Spiritual Friendship: Finding Love in the Church as a Celibate Gay Christian
      Another incredibly helpful book by Hill about following Jesus as a gay person, and how the church can be more helpful.

    • Angie Moses: Flying Home

      Angie Moses: Flying Home
      My wife Angie published her first novel a few years ago. #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.
