When you attend church do you feel as if you are part of a family or an organization? Do you think the local church should operate like a family or should the Pastor be more of a CEO? Ken and Deb will delve into these foundational questions Wednesday with Pastor Lee Eclov. Lee has experienced seasons of depression over the pressure to act as the church CEO and he’s going to share what happened when he had a radical paradigm shift regarding his call and the role of the church.
What role did facial-recognition cameras play in the closing down of a church in China? How did one North Korean border guard go from being a Bible confiscator to a Bible defender? We’ll hear these stories and more on Wednesday morning as we visit with Todd Nettleton from Voice of the Martyrs. Join Ken and Deb in being challenged by our brothers and sisters around the world that are facing persecution with courage and faith.
Ken's morning devotional comes from "Experiencing God Day-by-day: Devotional" by Henry Blackaby and Richard Blackaby
