  • Encouragement for the Summer Rut
    Danny Nathan—July 22

    Here are some questions to ask yourself if you suspect you might be in a summer rut: Are you tired? Are you sick of your schedule? Are you struggling with sin and longing for rest and refreshment?

  • Operation Barnabas—Crazy, Worth It
    David Nicodemus—July 20

    If you are familiar with Operation Barnabas you’ll recognize the songs, the dances, the puppets, the blue bus, the cross illustration, and the park programs. But it’s way more than those things…

    Core Value: We Are Bible-Driven and Spirit-Led
    Jonathan Wiley—June 13

    I would absolutely love being a contestant on The Amazing Race with my wife, Kim, but I’m not so sure we’d fare very well. While we are both very confident and competent finding our way around, we have an amazing capacity to speak two mutually exclusive navigational languages. We were reminded of this twice in the first 90 minutes of our 11-hour trip home from vacation just last week. “Which way!? I’ve got to know in 30 seconds!” This isn’t the best strategy for traveling safely.

    Core Value: We Embrace Grace as Our Character and Calling
    Matt Vosberg—April 18

    Because of the amazing grace we’ve been given by God, we have an opportunity to be dispensers of grace to others, both through the Gospel message of Jesus, and in how we live our lives in relation to others.

    Should I Take it to Court?
    Bernie Simmons—April 11

    Christians are tempted to use lawsuits to satisfy covetousness or seek revenge. But, using lawsuits for that purpose would leave us feeling like the Rolling Stones used to sing, “I can’t get no satisfaction.”

    Learning, Encouraging, and Serving
    Dustin Speaks—April 8

    “What did you do?” This is one of the most difficult questions to answer when returning from Haiti. The better questions may be “What did you learn?” or “Who did you encourage?” or “How did you serve?”

    So, What Now?
    Jonathan Wiley—April 6

    For most of us who have come to faith in Jesus, learning to walk closely with Jesus is something you only learn by experience. We joyfully and enthusiastically embrace the wonder of salvation but find ourselves struggling to live a victorious Christian life.

    Core Value: We Engage Our Culture
    Zac Hess—April 4

    Have you ever been so upset and angry at the world around you that you wished you lived in a different culture? I’m talking about more than just a desire for time travel, I’m talking about a longing to run because you are doubled over with disgust and can’t take the smell of society anymore.

    Why Invest in the Chadian Surgical Center?
    Dan Green—April 1

    It is an excellent question, given that there are many needy places in the world today, and many people groups who need to hear the Gospel of Jesus.

    Spring Into Action!
    Dustin Speaks—March 21

    Every follower of Jesus is called an ambassador for Christ, which means we have the privilege of representing Him to the people all around us who are far from God.
