I recently started a men’s ministry in our church & community. After live-streaming the Walk Worthy Men’s Conference. I invited the men in our congregation & many non church going friends to view conference. With all of the positive feedback & interest I felt delightfully compelled to fill the void & need for just such a ministry. We’re in our 4th month of our study of “Kingdom Men Rising” with Dr. Tony Evans I’m like so many in the Bible, the least likely instrument that Gad has chosen for the advancement of His Kingdom. Have a great day God bless
When I was a young man I had to make the tough decision to separate from one of my closest friends. I had the realization that he was not following God and was causing a stumbling block in my life of following Christ. We had both attended a Christian school. I was blind to the fact that this friend was bad for me. It took the outside influence of the woman that would later become my wife to show me that this friend was not right for my walk with Christ. Now, roughly 15 years later, I am the head Deacon at my church and have been married for 13 years with 4 beautiful daughters. Had I not separated from this "friend", my life would have been completely different.
After being diagnosed with thyroid cancer and having surgery, a member of the hospital pastoral team brought me the book 'JESUS CALLING, enjoying peace in His presence'. I read it daily, and it has brought me so much peace and hope. I wanted to find a way for me to share His word, and found this to be a great avenue for me to do so (as I am not well versed in the bible), I now give it as a gift for various occasions, hoping to bring peace and joy to those in need, and spread the word of our Lord.
