We’ve all heard stories of students who went off to college and ended up walking away from the faith. Although we often hear those kinds of stories, there are also students whose college experience becomes a time of rich and radical encounters with Jesus. What make the difference? We are going to explore that question and hear some of the truths that can transform college for the Christian as we hear from Stephen Kellough, a former chaplain at Wheaton College, on Thursday’s Ken and Deb in the Morning.
Did you know that 60 percent of pastors receive no retirement, health care, or employee benefits from their church, and half of all pastors make less than $50,000 dollars per year? With these statistics it’s no wonder that 90 percent of pastors feel financial stress! On Thursday’s program we are going to hear about a new nationwide effort to Bless Your Pastor with Brian Kluth. Brian will share practical ways that you can bless your pastor and church staff not only in October, but all year long.
Ken's morning devotional comes from Henry T. Blackaby and Richard Blackaby's "Experiencing God Day-by-day: Devotional"
