About Me

James Nored's Facebook profile
My name is James Nored. I have been married to my lovely wife, Becki, for seventeen years, and I have three lovely daughters-Gina (11), Emily (8), and our newborn, Kaylee. I have a passion for mission, preaching, outreach, connecting to postmodern culture, Spiritual gifts, and ministering to people--as well as Dallas-based sports teams! 

I am the minister at the Fairfax Church of Christ in Fairfax, VA, a suburb of Washington, D.C. I completed my Doctor of Ministry at Fuller Theologial Seminary in Pasadena, CA. I have studied there with incredible missional leaders.

I like starting new ministries, such as this website, which is designed to bring together people across the world who have a passion for mission. I give Missional Church and Spiritual gifts seminars around the country, and I enjoy writing and developing missional resources. Some of my sites include: www.storyofredemption.com and www.YourSpiritualGifts.com.

5 Reasons Christians Should View the Noah Movie as a Great Opportunity (and are Foolish to Go on the Attack)

Today the movie "Noah" is coming out to the big screen. And I want to share why Christians and churches should view this as a great opportunity to talk about their faith--and why it is foolish to waste time and energy attacking the film.In our secular world, getting people thinking about God is a good thing. The problem with much of our culture today--and certainly where culture is going--is the almost absence of God from the public square. Where as presidents, school teachers, and other…See More

My age group is looking for deep spiritual fulfillment. Often what we get is surface and disingenuous and I think we get that because the church thinks we are surface and disingenuous. But we aren't. You mentioned Apple in you article about how the church is missing the mark in communicating with my generation, but I felt after reading the article that you may have missed the reason Apple resonates with many of us. Take a listen to this, it sums up how I feel pretty well: http://www.ted.com/talks/simon_sinek_how_great_leaders_inspire_action.html
I've given it a lot of thought and this is just one piece, but it's a good place to start.

I'd like to be and have been trying a place to fit in with some difficulty, partially my own partially external. My demographic doesn't feel like a focus with the Church; It's like they don't know what to do with us.

Yes! I very much like what I do.

I found the site from an article about why young people are leaving the church. I had a response prepared but didn't feel up to it a few days later, because my response would have been strongly contrarian and wasn't sure it would have been constructive.

Thank you, bro. Nored for posting the 3-part series on Why the Church of Christ is shrinking. I thoroughly enjoyed them and have recommended them to the ministers where I attend. Do you have dvds or written material on the study, you mentioned, about "Rsdemption?" I am going to invite them to this site.

I'm new to your website and a little behind the times. I see a few preachers leaving the coc changing the name to a new name with instrrumental music. I do believe in reaching out  to our neigbors, rather than a country club approach. We have been members at the same congreagation for 22 years and most of time I sitting with an occasial clas to teach. Two years ago God found me and put  in a place to provide spiritual  counselng to 1100 ( no not a church but the county jail.) I'm the part time Chapain.  I work during the day and we have 3 brothers that provide weekly bible studies to inmates usually in the evenings or weekends. Any suggestions would be helpful..

Reflections on Cooperation and Religious Divisions

Attendance at a recent Missions Resource Network benefit dinner, sparked thoughts of the religious divisions and lack of coorperation that long characterised congregtions of the churches of Christ.  I was born and raised in the 40's, 50's, and 60's--more than 50 years distance from our present culture.  During those times,  many good practices were prevalent, chief among them a study and knowledge of scripture.  Alas, knowledge does not in itself mean understanding and practice.Congregational…See More
