“Religion Was Ripping Me Off”

Mike gave his life over to Jesus as a boy, but he really didn’t taste freedom til he was 38. And that changed everything. Mike Latsko works with FrontiersUSA: With love and respect inviting all Muslim peoples to follow Jesus.

Mike also leads the Engage Network whose goal is to reach, by 2025, the 1600 remaining Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu and tribal people groups in the world that still have no chance to hear the gospel.

First, Mike shares how he was trying so hard to be a good Christian till he was 38. That’s when he realized that his identity was in his own performance, not Jesus’. And that awakening has freed Mike to pursue God’s destiny full on.

Then, when God puts a dream in your heart and you’re afraid to pursue it because of what people will think. A conversation about how to get a God dream and then pursue it no matter what.

Next, it’s really the deepest motivation for sharing Jesus: Knowing that people the world over have never tasted what we have: The "never stopping, never giving up, unbreaking, always and forever love" of God.

Last, Mike’s audacious God dream to give the whole world a chance to hear the good news by 2025 and how you can be part of it! If this show pumps you up, please share it with someone!

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.

Born and raised in northern Michigan, he earned a bachelor’s degree in Communications and a graduate degree in Cross- cultural Communications.

Shawna Beyer

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.
