Upside Down Apocalypse

My contention is that Revelation, when read through the lens of the Gospels, will help us uncover the prophetic hope that saves us from nihilistic despair.


These are relational online learning and equipping hangouts for like-minded leaders to wrestle with what Jesus-centred living and leadership means while learning from and engaging interactively with thought and practice leaders from this growing Jesus-centred movement.

How and Why Should We Practice Enemy Love with Jon Hand

Jesus tells us to love our enemies. He doesn’t mean a hypothetical imagined enemy either. It is a love that goes beyond common sense. Jesus Collective Leadership Development Pastor Jon Hand reflects on learning to love your enemy from Matthew 5. Jon originally taught this sermon at The Meeting Place, a church in downtown Winnipeg, Manitoba, and we thought our wider Jesus Collective audience would enjoy it as well.

48 min

In this episode with J.W. Buck, we explore why it’s important to reveal the radical Jesus: the Jesus who teaches on justice, relating to the poor, and what it means to be salt and light in the world. We’ll get into Buck’s book, Everyday Activism” to answer some questions about creating social change, and dive briefly into the seven practices of justice he outlines in the book. J.W. Buck is a Christian faith leader and entrepreneur contending for a less violent world. He is the co-founder at Pax — which is an organization that desires to equip the next generation to pursue peace, justice, and wholeness in the world. And one of the ways they do that is through Jesus-centred content created by people of colour.
