Expectant Learning

September 13, 2019 by: Ryan Lawrence

Would you consider taking a class on bomb defusing interesting? It could teach you about red wires, blue wires, digital timers, ignition methods and the best way to assess what strategies to employ to defuse these bombs. Maybe some people would be interested in that f... Keep Reading

September 6, 2019 by: Kevin Burkholder

It's one thing to think about evangelism. It's quite another to do it every day. This week at our staff meeting, we posed the question: How can we think about evangelism every day, even if for only five minutes? Our answers, in no particular order: Prayer Socia... Keep Reading

An Encouragement to Pray

August 30, 2019 by: Kevin Burkholder
