A Sojourner’s Creed


I belong to Christ
My time and my life are His.
He directs the moments and the activities of my days.

He is the counselor whose wisdom I follow.
He is the model for how I live,
and the audience I seek to please.
He has called me to worship Him.
He has gifted me to serve Him.

I belong to Christ,
and I will live for Him today and forever.

Marty Schoenleber, Jr. has been a pastor, a church planter, a seminary professor, and an author but his favorite role is as husband to Stephnie and a father to his children. These days he lives in Rock Hill, SC and continues his work as a writer, (7 books), blogger, missional strategist and as a Standing Stone Ministry Field Shepherd caring for and encouraging pastors. In His BLOG he attempts to be “provocatively opinionated.”
In addition, he has taught Church Planting at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School and trains church planters around the world in partnership with Dynamic Church Planting International (DCPI). When he is not engaged in these activities he is either relaxing with his wife, rooting for a Philadelphia sports team, pedaling his bike down the backroads of South Carolina, puttering around in his garden or mentoring church planters. Occasionally, he sleeps.

There are various internet sites where you can catch up with Marty most recent activities: 

  1. Chosenrebel.me (“pastoral care for church planters and other missional leaders”)
  2. His books are available at Amazon.com and Crossbooks.com as well as Barnes and Noble in both paperback and electronic reader formats. 

4.  Two facebook pages at
         Radical Church Planting and
        Picking a President: Or Any Other Elected Official

  1. Thanks, Marty, for speaking at our church this evening. I like your advice to let folks know we are Christians upon introduction. A pastor I respect has said that we don’t have to tell others right away that we’re Christians, but when they find out, they shouldn’t be surprised. On the other hand, your strategy has some advantages I hadn’t thought of until this evening. I’m looking forward to checking out your blog, and hearing your sermon tomorrow at Bridgepoint Church. –Jen S.
