About the Author

Rev. Wesley Spears-Newsome

  1. I currently live in central North Carolina with my wife Meg. I’m the Associate Pastor of Community and Youth Ministry at Greenwood Forest Baptist Church. I attended Duke Divinity School and received a Master of Divinity with a concentration in Christian Education and a certificate in Baptist Studies. I am called to ministry in the local church, and I’m particularly passionate about the intersection between spiritual formation (e.g., worship, Bible Study, prayer, devotion) and mission (e.g., missional service projects, social justice work, long-term mission partnerships, community development). I’m particularly concerned with what sort of impact this formation has on emerging generations of Christians (Millennials on down).

If those words mean little to you, never fear. All I mean is that I want our churches to be places where we can be together and care about each other as well as our whole community.

This blog contains essays, sermons, liturgy, curriculum, etc. for clergy like myself and anyone looking for prayers and other resources. I hope you find something of grace here.
