Unlocking Value for Entrepreneurs

The Arminianism Acts 29 Equivalent

During the National New Church Conference, I was able to be part of a 'bloggers round table' with Shawn Lovejoy, Ben Arment, Tadd Grandstaff and Mark Batterson.  It was clear when we met for the first time, that we didn't know much of each other (Derek Brown was the one guy I knew), but at the round table, these bloggers were the influencers that many people read.  I had the chance to connect and after the session speak more with Ben Arment.  One comment that I enjoyed from him, when he was explaining more about who they were was:

We are the Arminianism Acts 29 equivalent.  Where you are reformed, we believe in evangelism by any means necessary.  We will try whatever works.

Ben is serious about reaching all people with the message of Jesus Christ.  It's good to see a Kingdom that includes people with various passions, convictions and talents seeking to spread this message.  


  1. Now that I know you’re so stinking tall, I’ll read your blog more…AWESOME meeting you… If you’re coming to ATL, call me!

  2. Shawn,

    Great meeting you too. I know we’ll run into one another more frequently now. And likewise, if you come over here to San Diego.

  3. Great description by Ben. Though I don’t think that necessarily reflects on everyone’s doctrinal perspective, its pretty fair. Great meeting you, Drew…even if it was for a hort bit.

  4. strike “hort” replace with “short”

  5. Yikes! Hey, I’ve been to your church. I was there a couple of years ago, and it was my first exposure to an Acts 29 church. I still tell people it was the most Spirit-led meeting I’ve ever been to.

  6. I thought the Arminianism Act29 equivalent was Calvary Chapel. jk

  7. Drew it was great meeting you at the bloggers roundtable man. Sorry we didn’t get to talk much, but hopefully we can hook-up some time soon!

    Thanks man! Keep up the awesome stuff bro!
