Hi, I'm Pastor Jay Moore and the founder of The Ordinary Christian.  I am absolutely convinced that God loves to use ordinary people to do his extraordinary work!  The Bible is filled with such examples.  Two of Jesus' own disciples are described exactly that way. Peter and John were referred to as ORDINARY MEN WITH NO SPECIAL RELIGIOUS TRAINING.  


Why would God chose to use ordinary people to accomplish his greatest work?  Why wouldn't he choose to use the more talented and extraordinary people?  Wouldn't he accomplish more if he did?  The reason why God loves to use ordinary people is found in 1 Corinthians 1:26-31:

"Brothers and sisters, think of what you were when you were called. Not many of you were wise by human standards; not many were influential; not many were of noble birth. But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things—and the things that are not—to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before him. It is because of him that you are in Christ Jesus, who has become for us wisdom from God—that is, our righteousness, holiness and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: “Let the one who boasts boast in the Lord.”


God wants to humble the proud and show the whole world that He can do anything, through anybody, including ordinary Christians.  That way God receives all the glory.  

The Mission of THE ORDINARY CHRISTIAN is to: 

Empower  Encourage  and  Equip

ordinary Christians to intentionally live the missional life for Christ.  I invite you to be a part of what God is doing by "Liking" The Ordinary Christian Facebook Page!
