That’s a tough sell. If the concept of sacrificing yourself as…


Collaboration in Christian Ministry By Dr. Zenet Maramara

Effective Collaboration Takes Us Farther Having spent forty years in full-time Christian ministry, I have learned the critical importance of collaboration in advancing the work of the Kingdom of God.

Reputation or Character?

Reputation as Idol by Alec Hill

Are you David or Goliath?

The Goliath in All of Us By Dr. Rob McKenna

The Gift of mercy and forgiveness.

The Gift of Mercy By Ed McDowell

The Blessing of Receiving and Extending Mercy The word “mercy” describes the compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone within one’s power to punish or harm. The You Version Bible App describes it as not getting what you deserve (judgment and wrath). In Scripture, we see the blessing that comes with it. “God blesses those who…


Perspective on Homogeneity By Dr. Mark L. Vincent

Refreshing Our Perspective on Homogeneity Early in the pastoring part of my career, our congregation’s leaders studied the homogeneity principle—essentially, like attracts like.
