The EXTRAORDINARY in the ORDINARY
Almost everyone feels the pressure to be extraordinary. It’s no longer enough to live a “normal” life. You have to start the next FaceBook. You have to be the next Tim Keller. You have to have a successful career and enough time to raise healthy kids. This summons to be extraordinary/radical pervades both the secular and the sacred.
But this call to be “radical” is alien to the Scriptures. Instead, God calls us to be obedient to the ordinary of life and to believe that he takes our “ordinary obedience” and accomplishes the extraordinary. In our brief time together, we will reflect on the ordinary/purposeful aspect of the Christian life and consider some areas where we can apply these principles.

Dr. Paul Jeon is the lead pastor for NewCity in Falls Church, VA. Paul has a steady, long-term view of ministry that trusts God to do extraordinary good through our ordinary, everyday obedience in the basic aspects of life. He hopes to plant several gospel-centered churches that will express God’s goodness in Jesus Christ to the greater Northern Virginia area.
Paul grew up in Queens, NY, and currently lives in Fairfax, VA, with his wife Geena, sons Christian and Jordan, and daughter Eleia. After receiving his MDiv from Westminster Theological Seminary in Philadelphia, Paul moved to Washington D.C. where he received his PhD in New Testament Studies from Catholic University and an MBA from George Washington University.
An author of several books, Paul is also a professor at Reformed Theological Seminary, Washington D.C., specializing in Biblical Greek and New Testament studies.
