When Does a Mission Become a Church? Dr. James Pedlar

July 22, 2021

I’m writing on the seventh day of Hollow Rock Holiness Campmeeting happening in Toronto, OH. Holiness Campmeetings are an important part of American Christian history.

I have two recent podcasts for you:

#2 - Should nonprofits profit? Hear Dr. Don Dixon’s helpful answer to the question here:

Some of you pointed out that I didn't send out an email last week. Don't worry, you didn't miss anything. The plan is to send our two to four emails a month alerting you to content coming from podcasts, youtube videos, writing, and speaking that is available at

Our thanks to WPO Development for stepping up as our first sponsor of the More to the Story Podcast.

Wesley Biblical Seminary, where I teach, is offering FREE SEMINARY this fall. If you are interested or know someone who is send them this link –

For the King!
