We want you to meet a woman who has a powerful story. Sara Im grew up in Cambodia and was forced into hiding and eventually caught up into an event we know as “The Killing Fields." Her faith in Jesus sustained her... and He’s using her to impact many lives!
Mike and Deb Gilbert’s wonderfully comfortable life took a dramatic turn on July 30, 2007, when their 18-year-old son, Sean, died from an accidental overdose of oxycodone and alcohol. Life was forever changed for the Gilbert’s and a new eternal perspective engulfed them both. The Gilbert’s trusted God, when he told them to “go.” They established One City Ministries in 2008 with a focus on empowering the severely oppressed and helping them break the chronic cycles of poverty. The Light Village, One City’s Life Science Center, is a 23-acre campus located on the Eastern edge of Uganda. It’s an amazing God story!
As we dig deep into God's Word, we prepare our hearts to grow in our relationship with God. Like any relationship, we will have questions aimed at helping us get to know God more intimately. Dr. Jim Coakley of the Moody Bible Institute - Chicago joins us every Monday morning to help us make sense of the more difficult passages found in Scripture!
We love connecting with listeners face to face! A good case in point was when we took the show on the road during our Hope For Kids campaign a couple of weeks ago to benefit foster kids and their families. One of the locations was Calvary Chapel in Pinellas Park. That’s where we connected with Dave Shaefer. He arrived with his coffee/food truck and wow.. it’s something else! But even better.. he’s running his business as a way to share the gospel and encourage believers.. wherever God may take him. This is such a great example of being an ambassador for Christ in the secular space. Maybe you’ve been wondering how to integrate you faith into your work life!
Ministry in modern society presents a perpetual assault on the pastor's soul. Culture has changed, and the challenges of ministry have changed with it. Many new pastors are discovering that they're ill-equipped to manage unexpected, soul-health tensions of ministry. Some are walking away, and others are choosing to not enter the pastorate despite a sense of God's calling. Pastor and author Cary Schmidt stopped by and shared a fresh approach to cultivating emotional health for a lifetime in ministry. By the way.. these biblical truths are applicable to all of us as believers!
