Earlier this week, I sat down and did a Skype interview with blogger, author — and now podcaster, Kenneth A. Camp (@KennethACamp). In talking with Kenny, his new podcast (Titled: His Hands and His Feet) will focus on “Authentic stories and conversations that will inspire and encourage you to live a life on mission.” We hope you enjoy this interview.
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.
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?
Have you ever thought about taking children in need into your home, either adopting or fostering? If you never pursued it, what stopped you? Did you have some reservations? Today, this is a discussion from 2 foster dads, will try to debunk the common myths of foster care. Maybe you ask yourselves why would I do that? — Well, let’s ask what would happen if you didn’t…
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…
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.
Just because a person becomes a Christian does not mean that life gets any easier. Often times, it gets harder. The enemy doesn’t want you to succeed and will do everything in his power to remind us of our shortcomings, to keep us down and out. Listen to what it took for Glenn to get through the pain and find the strength daily to succeed through his past hurts and pain.
Day to day, Glenn manages a call-in prayer and counseling department at a ministry in Plano, Texas named Hope For The Heart. Regularly, he helps people find hope and healing who are struggling with tough life issues. But. before he began working here almost 20 years ago, Glenn grew up with a not-so-easy childhood of abuse and neglect on all levels. Battling teen suicide and depression, drug use and sexual relationships with both men and women, Glenn had seen it all. Following a night of a cocaine binge, Glenn had had enough. At this point, Glenn began seeing a Christian Counselor and he learned that his identity did not need to found in his past abuse. Listen in to hear how Glenn found purpose in life beyond the abuse, but rather in Christ.
When you listen to this podcast, we want you to totally lose your traditional view of missions, and think of it in a whole new way! This episode paints the picture of a group of “creatives” who share how God is using others around the world to spread God’s love and message in amazing ways. Missions is not always about planting churches in the jungle, running an orphanage, constructions work or medical/dental trips. Listen in today to hear about this group of story-tellers doing what they can to spread the Good News in creative ways.
