Are you clueless about structuring ministry for those diagnosed with ADHD, anxiety, attachment issues, mood disorders, post-traumatic stress syndrome, and other difficulties in your church? What role can the Church play in removing the stigma often associated with mental illness? How can we learn to be supportive and compassionate for those who struggle? Our guest is a past recipient of the Exemplary Psychiatrist Award from the National Alliance on Mental Illness. He joins us today to challenge a sleepy Church to wake up and learn to minister to the broken among us.
How can you motivate your teens, to make good moral choices? Our guest, a best-selling apologist, will explain why today's older children believe that they should determine what's right and wrong; how culture denies the existence of universal truth (and where this misconception began); and why it's God's character and nature that ultimately define good and evil. Today, we learn how to teach the next generation to “contend” for the faith.

As a young man, Josh McDowell considered himself an agnostic. He truly believed that Christianity was worthless. However, when challenged to intellectually examine the claims of Christianity, Josh discovered compelling and overwhelming evidence for the reliability of the Christian faith. After trusting in Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord, Josh’s life changed dramatically as he experienced the power of God’s love. After his conversion, Josh committed his life to telling a doubting world about the truth of Jesus Christ. After studying at Kellogg College, Josh completed his college degree at Wheaton College and then attended Talbot Theological Seminary, graduating magna cum laude with a Masters of Divinity. Working with Campus Crusade for Christ and founding the youth outreach, Josh McDowell Ministry, Josh has shared the gospel with more than 25 million people in 125 countries. He is the author or co-authored of 147 books.
