The Day I Had to Choose Between God or the Girl

The next few days were a blur. Through conversation with friends and an eventual conversation by phone, I came to find out that she had come to the understanding that she didn’t want to be a pastor’s wife after all. Apparently, she realized this during my ordination.

Grace to You?

Believe, confess, call on the name of the Lord, grace through faith—it seems fairly clear to me that the way of salvation is for the person to acknowledge, in legitimate belief, the salvation and Lordship of Jesus Christ over his or her life.

How a Revolution Started With a Sleeping Bag

Shane Claiborne is a public speaker, social activist, and author. He strives to strip away all that culture has added to Christianity and get to the core of what following Jesus means.

Unexpected Journey

There have been many times I’ve fallen into a hopeless place, wondering when, if ever, point B would come into view (whatever point B was anyway?).

Why Homeschool?

I agree that homeschooling is not for everyone, but if you are considering homeschooling your children and you feel lost in a sea of information, you are not alone.

A Humble Preacher Heard by Millions

I can recognize Alistair Begg’s voice almost anywhere. His voice filled the car when I was a child. It bounced around the living room as I grew up, and has even graced my ears as an adult. He is a timeless teacher that has shaped not only my life but millions of other lives, too.

Ministry at Home

We are to be salt and light in the world, but we should remember that who we are out there to everyone else should also be who we are here at home.

How Darren Wilson Changed My Life

Just remember the Jesus in Scripture and watch the DVDs through that lens. He is changeless. He did all kinds of amazing things; present-day healing should be no different.

Trust Fatigue

If you have trust fatigue, you don’t want to quit the journey.  You just want to hit cruise control for a season. You have been walking in faith, but now your faith is tired. 

The Importance of Community

Jesus had community wherever He went—He lived, loved, and served those around Him every step of the way. We have one goal as believers and that is to make Jesus known—to live, to love, and to serve well.

Stinkin’ Feet

“I need to show you how much the Father loves you,” I simply stated. As she removed her worn sneakers and sweaty socks, I gently caressed each foot separately, pouring the refreshing water over her red, swollen ankle, and then patted each foot dry.

How to Start a Campus Revolution

As of today, Cru has become active in 190 countries, has trained up thousands of disciples, and has continued to keep Jesus the highest priority.

Why St. Patrick Would Prefer a Three-Leaf Clover

Saint Patty’s Day is known all across America as another reason to celebrate and wear festive attire. But when the history of a holiday gets shoved to the side, its real meaning gets overlooked, too.

How Four Walls Built A Ministry

Kris Lehne never planned to homeschool. She never planned to adopt or foster or help run a family nonprofit. She had several young children and needed to be home. Coincidentally, that was the perfect place to minister to the orphaned: within the safety of her own home.

Glue and Sawdust

The vast majority of the world anchors its faith in wealth, intelligence, self-gratification…glue and sawdust, if you will. Yet God is far from glue and sawdust; He’s a giant Redwood towering above the earth with unfathomable strength and majesty.

Winds of Change

What I love most about Kingdom Winds is the emphasis to call Christians out of hiding. To empower them to live in their identity as creators and let God and others experience the gifts they’ve been given.

Why It Doesn’t Work to Say “In Jesus’s Name”

Did you ever see a great manifestation of God’s power or authority in Christ, and then try to imitate what you saw but end up disappointed? Or have you read Scriptural promises and tried to act on them, but it seemed like they “didn’t work?”

A Year of Mama Jane’s Secret

Chad Norris published his second book Mama Jane’s Secret a year ago on February 13, 2018. And since then, the secret of friendship with God isn’t such a secret anymore.

I Was Never the Quarterback

Schools highlight quarterbacks to represent athleticism, but He never limits His superstars. God wants all of us out on the field wearing His jersey so that His glory, His creativity can be seen.
