Our dear brother Gideon Tsang joined us once again; offering a reflection on God’s creative artistry, and the needed reminder of the loving gaze with which we are seen, even as we are prone to resist God’s affection.
Pastor Chris Seay looks back upon both the history and present of Ecclesia, and our call as a church family to remain a compassionate and committed presence with the youngest among us as they grow into relationship with Jesus. Chris’ daughter Hanna shares how her experience of growing up here has uniquely shaped her call, and we consider how we engage with each of the Rhythms of Ecclesia for the sake of all of our kids.
Pastor Mitzi Mak concludes our series considering the Celtic way of evangelism. She explores the concept of an anam cara, or “soul friend”, while sharing stories from her life and relationships, and the transformative power of cultivating space where people know they are loved and that they belong, even amid our differences.
Pastor Sean Palmer continues our series considering the Celtic way of evangelism; entering into an important chapter in the life of the early church.

Pastor Wayne Brown continues our consideration of the Celtic Way of evangelism, sharing a message on the logos (form), pathos (passion), and ethos (essence) that guides us in our engagement with those we are called to invite into deeper communion with God and one another.
Teaching Pastor Sean Palmer continues our series on the Celtic Way of Evangelism. More than attempting to “convert” someone into a specific belief or way of thinking, it is when we commit to simple rhythms of invitation, vulnerability, fellowship, and sincere conversation that relationships are deepened and lives are changed.
Pastor Chris Seay introduces a new series on the Celtic Way of Evangelism. Through the story of St. Patrick, we are offered a glimpse of the kind of transformation and sharing of faith to which we are also called. As we meet others authentically and compassionately in the midst of their own stories and contexts, the presence of God will be revealed, and a genuine relationship with Jesus made possible.

Pastor Chris Seay shares a message from Mexico City on our call to engagement as a church in many ways; locally, globally, and historically. Following Jesus will always lead us into places that others might deem “unsanitary”, but are where the Gospel thrives. Pastor Josue Trevino follows with an invitation into particular ways to serve alongside partners both in CDMX, and here at home in Houston.
Pastor Sean Palmer invites us to continue embodying the narrative of the Resurrection. Though there remains much that cannot be undone, there is a great deal that can be redone as we seek healing, with God’s leading, in our lives and relationships.
