Ministry

Plant the Seed

It’s not always easy to work up the courage to minister to or intercede for others. It takes trust in the Lord, some slow breaths, and boldness that only He can give.

Is Your Women’s Ministry Prepared For Battle?

Today is a great day to take stock of your ministry’s priorities, goals, and vision. Are you equipping the saints to fight battles, or are you teaching women to be lazy and apathetic?

How H.O.P.E. Kids Is Bridging A Gap

H.O.P.E. Kids exists to raise adoption rates and lower abortion rates by working together. The mission is to provide women considering abortion with another option—adoption.

What of the Blemished Bride?

I begin to see, though, how this “shaking” seems to be uncovering hidden things in all areas of the Body. What is rising to the surface in it all?

Teaching from a Reservoir

But as I continued to reflect on this statement in the following days, I realized that the reservoir that Dr. Mayer taught from was not just that of Bible truth, but rather truth in relationship with Him who is Truth Himself.

Faith Isn’t Pretending

The danger of our modern, evangelical movement is that we’ve created an answer that is too slick and simplistic for real life—we’ve left no room for dealing with hard questions.

Courage Means God’s Not Scared

This challenge to have faith outside the four walls of the church will cause us to face new fears that we’ve never had to face before.

Three Keys for True Kingdom Promotion

We get jealous because we want what they have, yet the Bible teaches that the way God intends us to receive what they have is by first honoring what God is doing with them!

The Funhouse

Our God is an amazingly diverse, creative healer, redeemer, and lover of our hearts. Let’s never put Him in a box, but allow Him to set us free.

Navigating Through Transition

We have transitioned more times than I can count over the last 10 years, but this one has by far been the hardest…emotionally, physically, spiritually.

Step into the Awkwardness

Between doing this so spontaneously, getting honked at for my abrupt U-turn, and letting what seemed to be an overly eager stranger into my car, I was feeling a little awkward.

Intentional

We are the translators to the world around us of what God is doing and saying. Plan to be a beacon. Ask for someone to be put there for you to love on. Face your moments with intentionality in mind

What’s the Rub

Unity is created in an atmosphere of being understood, at least in trying to understand someone else’s point of view.  It’s an atmosphere of mutual respect and love.

Why We Need The Holy Spirit: Part 3

Jesus was always about love. But truth was never compromised in the meantime. This is the struggle that is plaguing our churches and, indeed, the world at large.

Worth It All

The deepness that He is taking me through requires a trusting faith, a real faith without any room for doubt or another plan.

Presence of God > Emotional High

Experiencing the presence of God can cause you to feel intense emotions, but being emotional is not the equivalent of being in the presence of God.

Experiencing God In Another Language

“Tu está aquí.” Three simple Spanish words meaning “You are here.” They became the first words in a foreign language that I connected to God with. It turns out God can also be “Dios.”

Charismatic Beginnings

The fact is that I’m grateful for my charismatic beginnings. If not for the very realness and nearness of the God Benny Hinn described in his testimonial book Good Morning, Holy Spirit, I don’t know if I would have ever taken steps of faith.

Why You Are Worthy To Attend Church

Nobody should feel like they cannot show up to church because they don’t have nice enough clothes to wear or they are stuck in a lifestyle of sin but don’t know how to get out. Come anyway.
