Listen to My Story – You’ll Hear My Heart for Jesus and the Gospel

Why RTCM? Why Yet Another Organization?

  • What if a large super-majority of people in most American Evangelical congregations–the quieter souls among us–have been largely under-served, under-trained… and even made to doubt their value to God?
  • What if these quieter people actually had the best gifts–helps, mercy, and giving–as well as the right skills–listening, noticing, thoughtfulness, emotional and practical caring–that are most needed right now in the kingdom of God?
  • What if many places outside the affluent, suburban, highly-resourced areas of our nation seldom received effective gospel training? Or couldn’t afford it if it was offered them?
  • What if almost all the methods and skills have been all about accosting strangers with the gospel without any need for a prior relationship? And we ended up building walls instead of bridges?
  • What if almost all our trainings were head-knowledge based and one-and-done magic oriented? And no fruit and no difference resulted?
  • And what if, like me, you had the heart, gifts, ability, and skills to go to these under-served, over-looked, under-resourced places and make an actual difference in the gospel? That’s why. That’s why I’m going. That’s why we exist. That’s why we do what we do!

What seasoned pastors are saying…

RTCM exists to serve His leaders and people!

We are working to equip even the quietest, most private, and most introverted of pastors and congregation members to do relational outreach as “insiders reaching other insiders.”

Here is an interview I did with the Luis Palau citywide gospel movement podcast where I share my testimony and give an introduction to our unique ministry.

80% of our congregations are full of quiet, private, introverted people who would rather listen than talk, who notice little things like troubled hearts and unmet needs, who are thoughtful and who deeply feel things, and who invite others to disclose their life stories and ask deepest questions.   

Let me help you to equip them to quietly do more than they ever thought possible for the gospel.  I am convinced that God can and will deploy this quiet majority to reach our post-Christian, suspicious culture full of very private people–if only they can be unburdened of false expectations and trained to be all the more what they already are in the Spirit though Jesus Christ our Lord! 

Check out the four presentations we use with churches to help equip quieter people in the gospel and in discipleship. (To view a slideshow: first click on the link below, then click on the link directly underneath the title in the next page)

We are working (with many others) to connect local churches to citywide, prayer-birthed, relationship-based gospel movements in the Pacific Northwest!

It’s already happening in many places.   But not all.  So how might it begin?  RTCM has found it can be done through building trust and brotherhood among the pastors, by facilitating the exchange of information and of holy dreams to do good, and by acting as a catalyst to stimulate various parts of the body of Christ to link up with like-gifted, like-minded strategic partners.  Why is this important?  Here’s are two presentations that give the big picture of what’s needed in the gospel here in the Pacific NW.
