Founded in 2007, Mockingbird is a ministry that seeks to connect the Christian faith with the realities of everyday life in fresh and down-to-earth ways. We do this primarily, but not exclusively, via daily online resources, semi-annual conferences, and a steady stream of publications, most recently our quarterly magazine The Mockingbird. The name of the organization was inspired by the mockingbird’s peculiar gift for mimicking the cries of other birds. In a similar way, we seek to repeat the message we have heard – God’s word of grace and forgiveness.
Mockingbird is a ministry of folks who want to see The Gospel of Jesus Christ infiltrate society and set people free. It is a ministry that seeks to uncover the Grace of God in all aspects of everyday life. From pop culture to parenting, relationships to technology – a ministry that is as comfortable on the field as it is in the fine arts. If last year’s conference is anything to go by, Mbird Tyler 18 is sure to be a time of warm fellowship and delicious food—for both the body and the soul.
Just as Mockingbird looks for fresh ways to wants to connect hearts and minds to the infinite word of Grace.
We Mockingbirds here in Tyler hope to connect the “Never Giving Up, Un-breaking, Always and Forever Love”of God (The Jesus Storybook Bible) of God, to our love of coffee and questions and even beer.
It may sound radical, but there is nothing more radical than the Grace of God.
“NOTHING ELSE IN THE WORLD MATTERS BUT THE KINDNESS OF GRACE, GOD’S GIFT TO SUFFERING MORTALS.” – Jack Kerouac
