It takes a long time to become a person of great faith. God commanded Noah to build an ark to save the world. But it was hard.
So today Dan Thompson of Crossroads Bible and Perry zoom in on the life of Noah to see what it takes to hear God say, “Your faith in me is deep and wide and connects you with my plan to heal the world!”
So first we see that Noah took the step that begins it all: “God I’m a sinner and I need you.” Then, Noah needed God to micromanage him. Wait, what? Yep.
Next he needed to push forward when people thought he was crazy. Then we see how Noah’s obedience saved Moses centuries later.
Next we see that Noah had to get out of bed day after day after day especially when he didn’t want to! Then, deep faith is never giving up till we hear “Well done good and faithful servant!”
Next we see that Noah’s deep faith came from knowing God loved him. And last we see that when we grow into a deep faith we do so only because of God’s faithfulness.
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. 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.
