Rev. Mike Baughman is the Community Curator and founding pastor for Union Coffee (a church inside a coffee shop). The editor for Flipping Church (2016), Mike is eager to encounter and support those on the innovative edge of church, non-profit and civic engagement. He has served as author, editor and developer for a long list of curricula through Sparkhouse Press and Cokesbury. Mike learned a lot about basketball while attending Duke University and then earned a couple of pretentious diplomas from Princeton Theological Seminary (they’re both in Latin and hang in his garage).  A third generation Methodist minister and church planter, Mike married a sixth generation Methodist minister, Rachel.  Mike is no stranger to LLUMC, having preached many times in our Crosswalk and Thrive Services.

2017 Shipp Lecture Series

2017 Shipp Lecture Series

On February 26 and 27, the Shipp Lecture Series Featured Craig Hill, Dean of Perkins School of Theology, SMU

Craig Hill, Dean of Perkins School of Theology, SMUDean Hill’s series was based on his book, Servant of All: Status, Ambition and the Way of Jesus.

Sunday’s dinner exploreed the biological basis of the human desire for status and the countercultural example of Jesus.

At Monday’s breakfast, we discovered how Paul and other early Christian leaders confronted this issue, and considered how we might create a community of love and acceptance.

Scripture theme: Philippians 2

Who is the Greatest of All?
