New York: After trust is earned

Student Missions blog: Working at Swerve Church in Brooklyn has taught me how hard the hustle of church work is. But when you do get to see the fruit, that's when you realize God is so good. When you are out serving the community more than two months, expressions start to change.

Guest editorial: The myth of partial discipleship
