You are now entering the mission field

A short while back, we were interviewed on Kenny Ortiz (@KennethOrtiz)’s podcast Theology for the Rest of Us. — In our interview, we discussed why it’s important to be “intentionally and purposefully culturally relevant” as believers, and the DANGER to being casually religious individuals in our society. We also discussed the importance of being a missionary, and what it means to walk out your faith with purpose.

Trust Fall

Where are you in your daily / moment-to-moment trust with the Lord today? Are you trusting Him with the little things, as well as the big? Or maybe you trust Him with the big decisions, and micromanage the small things in life? Do you think that you have the strength to truly “Trust Fall” into God?

Purple Bandana Story

A little more than a decade ago, God brought Rick across the path of someone who needed to talk. And by “chance,” he was able to share both his bandana and a quick story of inspiration with someone in need. Listen to the story of Rick telling the story in his own words.

Hearing about the shootings last night in Dallas, stacked on top of other recent well known shootings around the country — one’s heart can become numb with grief and disbelief… How do we, even as a society, often see the events that are unfolding before as through the broken or even shattered lens of our past? … And how can we begin to see ourself and the life placed before us through the lens of the way that God sees us?

the Forgotten Initiative - Interview with Jami Kaeb

Too often in the church ministries that focus on orphans, widows and various helps ministries are seen as side projects that we “will get to when we have time.” But, Scripture shows us that these should be ministries in the forefront! Orphans and widows are in the time of their life where they most need people around them to love them, care for their needs, and show the love of Christ through their actions; if we were in the same state in life, wouldn’t we want the same form others? Who cares for the state and agency case workers? Who ministers to the foster parents? What about the parents who got their children taken, or the children who age of the system? Who is caring for these forgotten individuals? — That’s where Jami Kaeb and the ministry The Forgotten Imitative comes in…

The Room Drama / Skit

A quick podcast episode: For those who have known me longer, I, in my former years, have done some drama and theatre; I have had the privilege of performing this particular drama at various church camps, services for college age and adults, a number times. I was even approached by some national touring drama teams asking if I would teach them this and then use the material in their own services. That aside, written by Josh Harris, voiced by Josh Armstrong, and music accompaniment by the Irish Film Orchestra, “The Room” is a great drama / skit for ministry. We hope you enjoy it. We do not make any money off of this; we just hope it will be used for God’s glory in ministry.

In this episode, we will hear some great thoughts and tips from Brooke and Court towards other blended families, as well as to others who truly want to reach out and minister to blended families in their church or community.
