Today, Paul’s gospel versus the American Evangelical gospel, they’re really different from each other, check it out—we get an assist from John Mark Comer, teaching pastor at Bridgetown Church in Portland. Then, it’s not, “What would Jesus do?” It’s “If Jesus were you, what would he do?” It’s a conversation about what it’s looks like that Christ lives through us. Next, the true gospel is so much better than the one we may be settling for.
Then, the American Evangelical gospel is not untrue, it’s just missing SO much. Then “Being a Christian is more than just an instantaneous conversion - it is a daily process whereby you grow to be more and more like Christ.” And finally, heaven isn’t just a place that we go to when we die, it’s the life of God in us now. And, belonging to Jesus isn’t a ticket to heaven, it’s answering his call, “Follow me,” and then following him for the rest of our lives and into eternity.
Perry LaHaie's passion is to know Jesus and make Him known. “I’m all in with Jesus but not all put together. I need Jesus right now as much as I did when I first started following Him!” Perry says. In addition to co-hosting Perry and Shawna Mornings, Perry is a singer, songwriter, recording artist, and advocate for those who haven’t yet heard the gospel, especially those in the Muslim world. Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications. Perry also serves with Frontiers, a worldwide ministry to Muslims. Perry and his bride, Teresa, call Holland, Michigan home. They have two adult children, Kali and Taylor, and Taylor’s bride, Bri.
Shawna Beyer has a way of telling stories that create personal connection— to her, to one another, and to God. She has been a homeschool mom, church planter, project lead for a consulting company, and church staff member. Though she’s been involved in ministry with her husband (Dan) in Iowa, Arizona, and now Michigan, she was born and raised in Southern California and as they say, “You can take the girl out of California . . .” She is mom to four grown kids (Bryn, Drayson, Eden, and Haven) who no longer need her but humor her anyway. Shawna is passionate about the rhythms we weave into the fabric of our lives to fall more in love with God each day. Healthy foods are her go-to, but she will abandon that whole track in a heartbeat for a homemade cinnamon roll like Grandma used to make.
Perry and Shawna Mornings helps start your day with heart-to-heart conversations, compelling guests, and songs reminding you that you are Abba’s child! You have been blessed to be a blessing, and you have been loved to share Jesus’ love!
