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.

"Very insightful article! I would like for my church family to develop into a more "missional" group, but, as you mention in your article, many church groups do not know quite how to do this; or how to do it effectively. Thank you for…"

The Hobby Lobby Case - Can We Count on the Supreme Court to Preserve Our Religious Freedom??

This past week there was a landmark Supreme Court decision regarding Hobby Lobby--a privately held, family owned religious craft and bookstore company based in Oklahoma--and religious freedom. In a narrowly framed 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that companies of this nature could not be compelled to offer health care plans to their employees that covered contraceptives that cause abortion post-conception if it violated their religious beliefs.One of the senior…See More

Thanks! My wife and I are both teachers in our public school system, so we believe this - in and of itself - is missional. I've also participated in three mission trips to Dzerzhinsk, Ukraine. This experience has had quite an impact on my perspective of missional outreach, and the role it plays in sharing Jesus with others. As an insightful friend once said - "If we meet their physical needs first, the spiritual needs will take care of themselves."

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.
