It’s been 10 years since David Giese graduated from the Moody Bible Institute, and he joins the line up on the Founder’s week stage presenting a message on God’s unshakable kingdom! David takes us to Hebrews 12 for his Founder’s Week message; presenting a word of hope and encouragement with Ken and Deb in the Morning for the final day of Founder’s Week 2022.
Founder’s week 2022 wraps up with Alumni Day! Alumnus Chris Rapazzini is the first speaker for the final day of Founder's Week messages, and he uncovers a little of what God is teaching him concerning the theme, “Unshaken.” Chris says God’s grace is displayed in the middle of our unsettling circumstances and then Chris will lead us to the ultimate display of grace that burst forth in a time of “shaking.”
