LA This Week

This is my travel time of year. Thankfully, my family and health are good, as is Mars Hill Church. This week I’ve got a number of things happening in LA. The list is long and curious, and since people have been asking a lot of questions, I thought maybe laying out the trip would help people understand what’s happening and how to pray. Loveline with Dr. Drew – I will be live on the radio with Dr. Drew answering questions about sex on Tuesday, February 9. Details can be found here. For those unfamiliar with the radio program, it is the show on issues pertaining to sex, sexual abuse, and sexual addiction. From what I’ve been told, I may be the first pastor and possibly first conservative Christian ever on the show. In years past I co-hosted a small national radio show, and I love the format of taking calls live. Any prayers for me to pastorally serve people well for Jesus are appreciated. Radicalis with Rick Warren – I will be preaching at Saddleback Church on Thursday, February 11, on the assigned topic of the cross of Jesus Christ. I look forward to meeting pastors of larger churches because I always enjoy learning from them about how to lead better and help Mars Hill be a better church for Jesus’ fame. I/we have a lot of learning and growing to do, and so I am always grateful for experiences like this, while also serving others by preaching about Jesus. More details are here. Publisher meeting – Doctrine: What Christians Should Believe is due out at the end of March. Weighing in at 464 pages with around 1,000 footnotes, it is easily the best most comprehensive thing I’ve ever written. But it’s also the last book I am under contract to write. With the publishing industry in the tank, while I’m in LA I’ll be meeting with my agent, who was recently signed, to help sketch out the next few years of publishing. Grace and I really want to publish a book on marriage at some point, as well as some other more practical things. Lovelife at the Orpheum – With LA being the world center for pornography creation, it should be quite a workload to preach on biblical sex and marriage on Saturday, February 13. More details can be found here. I’ll be home Sunday to kiss my wife for Valentine’s Day, give my two daughters their funny cards and gifts from their daddy, and preach at Mars Hill.

It's All About Jesus

Jesus was a man who claimed to be God. Think on that for a minute. If that were true, how would it change the way you thought, felt, and lived this life?

At Mars Hill, we believe that Jesus is God. We take him at his word. Because of this, everything we do is all about Jesus. We invite you to learn more about this man who is God and how you can find forgiveness and new life in him.

Visiting a church for the first time can be nerve-racking. But having an idea of what to expect can help. There are three main parts to every Sunday service: preaching, worship, and kids. To learn more about each of these, click the links below.

The Mars Hill Guide Leadership at Mars Hill

We value community

Church is more than a service. It’s people living life together and helping one another throughout our cities to serve our cities. Each week, thousands of people at Mars Hill meet in hundreds of small communities to learn about God, pray, eat, laugh, and live. We call these Community Groups—and they’re the heart of our church.

Cheerful givers wanted

Jesus is the most generous person who ever lived. He gave his life so that we might live. As Christians, we give our time, talent, and money joyfully in response to Jesus’ generosity and to help more people meet Jesus.
