Men, do you desire a life lived passionately for Jesus, above mediocrity, making a difference in your world? Iron Sharpens Iron Men's Conference is an equipping conference that aims to bring men together for encouragement in fully living into biblical manhood and into relationships with other men in the local church. Roy Abbott from Focal Point Ministries will be with Ken and Deb Wednesday to fill us in on this year's conference and to talk about the vital role men God has called men of God to in this world and in their families.
How is our time on social media impacting our life in Christ? The average social media user is spending about two-and-a-half hours a day which is more than enough time to shape our values and desires. Whether it’s being consumed with likes, views, or followers, or being increasingly disenchanted with our daily lives, the influence of this online community is changing us and our children. What is a reasonable and healthy response to this powerful influence? Chris Martin is helping us to think biblically in our response in his new book, The Wolf in Their Pockets. Chris will share biblical wisdom, direction, and hope in this conversation as we seek to follow Christ in our social media-saturated world.
