This week Ryan talks with Bernardo Michael, a history professor at Messiah, about the importance of knowing our own histories as historical rootedness, and how that helps us to interact more faithfully and lovingly with others - in this specific case with Nepali refugees in the Harrisburg area - toward the end of building the "beloved community" Jesus calls us to participate in.

Saddleback Spiritual Growth Pastor Jason Wieland is joined by Celebrate Recovery Pastor Meaghan Grider to talk about patience. Talking about patience may sound trivial, or may even be something you want to actively avoid, but honestly it's an extremely important topic with many rich layers to it. We may think of patience as waiting in line, or putting on a nice face rather than lashing out in anger or frustration. But there is a depth and nuance to talking about patience that is so often untapped and underdeveloped. Patience can and should be a marker of our attachment to God and can be a diagnostic tool to help you figure what areas of your life you may be struggling in right now. Meaghan and Jason talk about Meaghan's own battles with patience, the struggles of patience as it relates to anxiety and depression, the beautiful opportunity we have to trust God when we ask for help with patience, and much more.

Biblical ministry in blue, liberal cities pose many challenges. Pastor Chase Davis is familiar with them, having helped plant a church in Boulder, Colorado. Creeping persecution and open hostility have marked his church's recent experience. You may recognize the same cultural collapse advancing in your own backyard. If so, this episode of the Christian Emergency Podcast has much for you to learn from. Chase offers thoughtful insight into how Christians can faithfully stand in an increasingly negative world. Drawing on his experiences as a missionary, church planter and pastor, Chase provides helpful context and encouragement for believers who have been confused by recent years. Chase dives into the challenges arising from lockdowns, protests and ill-prepared churches. He also discusses concerns about institutions that have been compromised, captured or collapsed. This includes recent challenges with the Acts 29 church planting network. If you find this episode helpful, please give us a positive rating and review wherever you listen to your favorite podcasts.

All Things Through ChristIt's all about relationships for Farris Welsh. So much so that when the United States government needed someone to mend a broken relationship between the U.S. and the King of Thailand in the early 2000s, the Department of Defense called on Farris to be part of the DOD's relationship-mending team.Farris' career as a contract negotiator with the United States government came unexpectedly. Little did she know when she earned a degree in education from Cedarville that her skills would be used to educate foreign leaders and U.S. officials. In this role, she found herself traveling to Europe, the Middle East, and all over Asia. On some of these international trips, Farris took her daughter, Rachel, who eventually followed in her mother's footsteps. Rachel was working on her master's degree when she decided to work at Wellington University in New Zealand. She worked there for a year, traveling to places like India and Bangkok when she had the chance. But it was the day she was scheduled to fly home that another tragedy struck: a 9.4 magnitude earthquake hit New Zealand, just hours before Rachel's flight was to leave for San Francisco.Rachel passed away on February 22, 2011. Through all the tragedies and hardships Farris has faced in life, she still points back to the Lord. For in Him is the strength to press on.
Women's Ministry Toolbox Podcast
In today's podcast episode, I'm discussing the importance of Christian fellowship for women's spiritual growth. Listen in as I read chapter 2 and chapter 6 of my book, Rethinking Fellowship: A Handbook for Hosting Meaningful Women's Ministry Events.Don't miss the startling stats about biblical worldview - you may be shocked to know how few women in the church hold to a biblical worldview!Quote: "Pinterest, social media, and the internet highlight the visual aspects of our women's ministry events. Images we see as we search for women's ministry ideas focus on tablescapes, beautiful buffets, photo booths, and stage décor. Rarely do we, or can we, see the biblical lessons taught and learned at women's ministry fellowship, events, and activities. We've been duped into thinking women's ministry events should be and are supposed to be visually appealing." - Cyndee OwnbeyShow notes available at https://womensministrytoolbox.com/the-importance-of-christian-fellowship-for-womens-spiritual-growth/Rethinking Fellowship is available for purchase from various online retailers including Amazon and the Women's Ministry Toolbox Shop.Thank you for listening to the Women's Ministry Toolbox Podcast.

Season Two. Episode Four. Gospel For Millions In Greece. Hosts Dirk and Brooke talk with Johnathan Macris. Johnathan Macris is president of Hellenic Ministries (formerly Hellenic Missionary Union) and the oldest child of well-known Greek evangelical missionaries, Costas and Alky Macris. Johnathan graduated from Moody Bible Institute in 1985 and then returned to Greece to serve his mandatory year in the Greek Army. He and his wife, Miriam, married in 1987 and have five children: Justin, Natassa, Kyle, Karsten and Jorryn. Johnathan eventually went on to complete ministerial studies and was ordained as a minister of the Gospel in 1994 through the Wheaton Bible Church. Since the beginning of Hellenic Ministries in 1980, Johnathan has been vitally involved in the mission's emphasis of evangelism and church planting, discipleship and missions. In his leadership capacity, over the years, his responsibilities have included Personnel Manager, Summer Evangelistic Campaign Director/Coordinator, Member of both Greek and American Boards and de facto Administrator of the daily affairs of the Mission. He assumed the Boards designation of president in 2001. While the burden for Evangelism and Discipleship continues to mark Hellenic Ministries' priorities, Johnathan is emphasizing the need for the ministry to fulfill its role and call to raise up, equip and send Greek workers into the harvest field of world missions. For more information about Johnathan or Hellenic Ministries, please visit its website: hellenicministries.org Every story is a living example of Isaiah 55:11.

In the season finale of Season 9 of the GoodLion podcast, we take a moment to appreciate the incredible journey we've been on, and share with you some awesome news. As we dive behind the scenes, we express our heartfelt gratitude to our steadfast listeners, both old and new, for accompanying us on this spiritual path. A Ministry Update: First, a ministry field report: we're thrilled to announce that GoodLion Ministries has been expanding its reach with the establishment of the GoodLion School of Discipleship in Yukon, Oklahoma. This new venture is a multi-church ministry effort where young adults can immerse themselves in the study of theology, discipleship, and the teachings of Jesus. This progression from a podcast to a local community has been welcomed with overwhelming love and support, and we're just getting started! As we look back on a fruitful first semester and look ahead to the next, we invite you to join us on this educational journey by visiting www.GoodLion.school, where you can check out what we are doing and support our mission. A Summer Break, Classic Episodes, and Higgins Returns for Season 10: We will be taking a break for June and July, but In our efforts to consistently deliver meaningful content, during the break we'll be dusting off and re-sharing some of our best episodes from the early seasons that you may have missed. In addition, we're delighted to share that Brian Higgins, our much-loved co-host, has been helping us record more episodes for next season. His presence has always been crucial to the podcast, and we can't wait to have him back around. If theology piques your interest, next season we've already recorded some engaging episodes on eschatology featuring the renowned professor Darrell Bock, as well as friend of the show Nick Cady. We're also looking forward to incorporating lessons from the GoodLion School of Discipleship into our podcast. Personal Note and Request from Aaron: Friends, as we wrap up this season, I come to you with a personal appeal. After much prayer and consideration, I've decided to pursue a Master's Degree in Applied Biblical Leadership under the mentorship of Professor Gary Breshears at Western Seminary. This journey means a lot to me, yet it has presented some financial obstacles. I've always tried my best to support myself as much as possible through working with my hands and mind, but recently I lost my main side client that was helping me pay for Seminary tuition. In light of this, I am humbly reaching out for your assistance to make this vision a reality. If you feel led, contributions can be made at GoodLion.org/help. All donations will directly support my seminary payments. I have no expectations of anyone other than Christ. I am simply just throwing out an ask and seeing if the Lord speaks to anyone about helping. I fully trust He will provide in whatever what He chooses, and I would ask that if you don't feel led to help, please just keep me in prayer that the Lord would lead, guide, and provide! Thanks for reading, praying, and listening. Love you all and excited for next season! --- Send in a voice message: https://podcasters.spotify.com/pod/show/goodlion/message
Today we introduce our new series, Portraits of Discipleship. Matthew 4 defines a disciple as one who is following Jesus, being changed by Jesus, and on mission with Him.
To close out our season, Mike is on the hot seat and answers questions from two of YPT's regular contributors, Nick Hartman and Joseph Bradley. The conversation included the following questions: What do you look back at as your biggest failure in student ministry, and what's something you're really proud of? How have you navigated relationships with other youth workers who aren't theologically-minded and don't share that value for student ministry? How have you advocated for theologically-deep youth ministry in the churches where you've served? How would you encouraged younger youth workers to pursue longevity in youth ministry? If you're trying to recruit someone to serve in vocational youth ministry, what's your pitch?

Claude Alexander is senior pastor of The Park Church in Charlotte, North Carolina and the author of Becoming the Church: God's People in Purpose and Power.The church has never been perfect.It has always been filled broken people, sinful people, silly people, selfish people, violent people, manipulative people, mistaken people, intrusive people, rough-around-the edges people.All kinds of people. Including good people, kind people, compassionate people, people of justice.The church, we might say, is made of a “becoming” people.That's what Bishop Claude Alexander and Markus Watson discuss in this episode, focusing on what it means to be a people who, not only are the church, but who are continuing to become the church in all the fullness of who the church is meant to be.THIS EPISODE'S HIGHLIGHTS INCLUDE:Bishop Claude Alexander is senior pastor of The Park Church in Charlotte, North Carolina and the author of Becoming the Church: God's People in Purpose and Power.Claude Alexander suggests there is a tendency to separate Jesus from the church. But you can't separate them.We need to temper our expectation that the church is a perfect product.The Church is essentially a people in the process of becoming.Claude Alexander describes Peter and Thomas as being “dechurched” after the death of Jesus.Churches need to do a better job of discipling people before they become dechurched.Many churches feel marginalized and decentered in Western society today. But that is not a new experience for churches composed of racial and ethnic minorities.Our call in Christ, according to Claude Alexander, calls us to each other in the complexity of our diversity.Claude Alexander discusses the ways the apostles had to adapt in the early church, focusing especially on Acts 6.It was because of their obedience to what they knew that the apostles were able to seize later opportunities that God had for them.RELEVANT RESOURCES AND LINKS:Claude Alexander:www.claudealexanderministries.orgwww.theparkministries.orgTwitter - @bishopcrajrBooks mentioned:Becoming the Church: God's People in Purpose and Power, by Claude AlexanderAnonymous: Jesus' Hidden Years…and Yours, by Alicia Britt CholeLearn how to lead your church into ministry that matters.

Do you intentionally align your thoughts, actions & life with God? Listen to what Pastor Kelly has to say about what taking up our cross in a modern world could look like.
Let's face it. We gather people and organize events in our church to connect church families and guests. But when we create events, are we doing them with a next step in mind or how "great" the event can be?We invite JJ Yount on the broadcast alongside Adi Coe, who both serve at First Redeemer Church in Cumming, Georgia. As a seasoned student pastor and associate pastor, JJ shares some of his processes for helping events be next-step generators in our discipleship pipeline throughout his ministry and as the student pastor at First Redeemer. Adi serves on the team with JJ connecting women at First Redeemer and the community in discipleship. In this episode, the team talks about the following: How do we communicate and promote events? All events start with how the church views the events in general. What makes the engine of your church go, and how do you make it go faster? Are your events just for evangelism, or could they also do discipleship? Who are you trying to bring in, and what action must they take? Do something exciting they haven't done before but know your strategy beforehand. Someone who has never been to church and doesn't have a relationship with the church, and it's hard not to see it from their view if they have been raised there. It's like Marketing 101: Your internal language needs to be rethought and get out of the bubble of the church. The same event doesn't translate into different contexts, so know your demographic and the people you want to reach. Where do you start trying to make your church more diverse? Dig into what the community needs. People know when it's not genuine. God loves creativity! JJ visited Africa. Noticed that some of the negative impacts are when we go in and try to make churches in Africa like US churches, they lose the culture. We are not there to create a US church. How can we figure out what culturally matters to that person so we can meet them where they are and meet their need? Every human wants to belong, but they belong differently, and you must also see this at your events. Train leaders to see this too. The win is the people who move on to the next stage (i.e., joining a small group, etc.). Pre- and Post-Checklist

Our guest on this episode is Nathan Zieber, the Community Liaison Director for MUFON Canada, a former private investigator, and the “Paranormal Pastor” in some fringe communities.Nathan, a Christian, got involved with MUFON after hearing stories from his grandfather, a Marine in Vietnam, about mysterious lights in the sky known as Foo fighters. He was surprised to find that there was little to no Christian presence in the realms of paranormal activity. His work has been accepted by his church and other Christians because they recognize the need to bring light to those lost in darkness.https://unrefinedpodcast.comMidnight Mysteries- Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/midnightmysteriesradio/- YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCTriPoRZLRxCZaZVvbyA4ag- Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/show/2PcK1RyqXTzKC6lhMdTCDf?si=ge_gU2tDRjCC9WQ71bL3Bw&dl_branch=1&nd=1- Google Podcasts: https://podcasts.google.com/feed/aHR0cHM6Ly9hbmNob3IuZm0vcy82OTQ0ODA2OC9wb2RjYXN0L3Jzcw- Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/midnightmysteriesradioEmail: email@example.comWebsite: https://ariteam.org/Timestamps0:00:06An Introduction to the Mutual UFO Network with Nathan Zieber0:02:59Investigating Unnatural Phenomena: Determining Natural vs. Unnatural Phenomena0:04:57MUFON Investigator on UFOs and Paranormal Activity0:07:04Exploring the Supernatural0:11:35Exploring the Possibility of Aliens and Interdimensional Beings 0:19:02Analysis of Recent UFO Sightings and Their Impact on Eschatology0:21:00Engaging People with the Gospel Through UFO Discussion0:23:24Building a Bridge Between Christianity and the Paranormal Community Through Dialogue and Discipleship0:26:32Building a Relationship with New Age UFO Folks0:28:23Exploring a Healthy Balance Between Christianity and Paranormal Beliefs0:30:04Conversation on Eschatology and the UFO Phenomenon0:32:07Eschatology and the Rise of New Age Spiritual Practices in the UFO Community0:36:18Conversation on the Spiritual Realm and Transhumanism0:38:12Conversation on the Mark of the Beast and Technology0:39:49Investigating Unusual Animal Mutilations0:41:59Investigating Paranormal Encounters with MUFON and Whistleblowers0:44:02The Power of the Name of Jesus in Paranormal Communities0:50:06Conversation on Reaching Out to Fringy Folk0:51:48Conversation on Touching the Unclean and Ministering to People Outside the Church0:54:09Transitioning to a Church of Small Groups: The Role of Lay Ministers in the New Testament Church

The Commands of Christ Podcast
How do we identify a “false prophet”? And how do we identify one who is speaking the truth? It can be confusing because outwardly they can look the same! Jesus gives us the key: “ you will know them by their fruits.” Fruit is the outward manifestation of what is inside a person's heart. In our day, there is a growing need for us to be able to discern between what is true and what is false. With so much teaching from so many sources available at our fingertips, we can see that Jesus' command to Beware of False Prophets is just as applicable and needful for us today! For this reason, may we daily saturate our hearts and minds in the Word of God! As we do, we will know the Truth and be able to discern what is not of God through the power of His Holy Spirit.Want to go deeper in studying this command of Christ?

FAITH IN THE MARKETPLACELet Me Tell You About My Jesus - Part 1Springcreek Church | Dr. Jessica FerndezJune 4, 2023I don't know about you, but too often after having an amazing weekend filled with fun, family, and friends, we remember that tomorrow morning is Monday…Dun-dun-duuuun!!! And I have to go to work! But what if instead of dreading Monday morning, whether at home or in the office, we see it as God sees it? It's an opportunity to demonstrate Who He is, in everything we do. But also, an opportunity to see God working through all that we experience and all who we encounter in the workplace.DISCUSSION QUESTIONS1. Work is a very big part of our lives. According to statistics, the workplace is full of broken people. What about the workplace statistics has beensurprising and what are some statistics that don'tsurprise you? Why?2. Because work is our assignment, what strategies do you believe the enemy uses at your workplace to stop you from demonstrating your faith to all those who you impact on a daily basis?3. When we think about our workplace, in what practical ways can you demonstrate your faith? Also, in what ways can you prepare your heart and mind for the workplace?https://www.springcreekchurch.org/#realspringcreekchurch #letmetellyouaboutmyjesus #faithinthemarketplace #faith
Most of us have ideas about how we want life to work, but our reality rarely looks like our plans. In Acts 18, we see how God brings real-time growth in the midst of real messes. What if we learned to see “church” as a group of friends who walk alongside us in the mess and help us understand the way of God more deeply?
There are two types of Christians: King Sauls and King Davids. Have you been an overcomer throughout your life or just for a moment? The story of David and Goliath screams that one man can truly make a difference.
This sermon was preached by Dr. Michael Keller on Sunday, June 4, 2022 at Redeemer LSQ. The Scripture reference is Exodus 14.

If you were to receive an invitation, from whom would be the most important? Only you could fill in the name and the reason. I need to ask one other question about invitations. Isn't it true that any invitation you receive is answered? Yes, I accept, or No, I decline. The Bible is replete with invitations from God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. In Isaiah, God invites rebellious Israel, "Come and let us reason together." All the prophets invited people to repent their sins and turn to God. In the New Testament. John the Baptist invited Israel to repent of their sins, for the kingdom of God is near. Jesus offered His invitation to believe in Him and follow Him. Then Peter gave a great invitation on Pentecost when the Holy Spirit descended and indwelt believers to start the church. The main idea is that how you and I respond to the invitations given by Jesus will determine our eternal destination and the quality of life we live on earth. Let's dive into this beautiful passage in John 7.
Cheap grace is the deadly enemy of our church. We are fighting today for Costly Grace. The call of Jesus is self-denial. The call of Jesus is for Discipleship which means sacrifice.
Is your thinking focused on the Lord Jesus Christ? Listen to this message to learn that in order to focus on Him we have to learn about Him. Find out how we can show we love Him by keeping His commandments, which are found in the Bible. See what weight we are supposed to lay aside and how to endure in difficult times. Remember that the more we focus on Christ, the more the problems and trials in this life lose their importance.
