To The Churches – What Is A Disciple?

TTC-thumbnail-v2

[display_podcast] From Gary Avant, President and Lead Coach of To The Churches: There is a lot of misunderstanding about the term “discipleship”. The word “disciple” is used 297 times throughout the New Testament. The word “Christian” is used three times. According to these numbers, we should be receiving about 1,000 times more teaching about being a disciple of Christ compared to being “Christian”. How does this fit into the type of teachings that you are receiving at your church? Jesus, of … [Read more...]

Jesus in HD Thumbnail

[display_podcast]From Dewey Bertolini, Pastor of The Safe Haven in McMinnville, OR My heart goes out to Jesus. After preparing for this week's PODCAST, I feel such a profound sense of compassion for Him. The thing of it is... I knew that the religious leaders of Jesus’ day hated Him.

Now they saw Him as a colossal threat to be killed. I got … [Read more...]

Jana Thumbnail Big 2

[display_podcast] When I hear the word “wait,” I think of something terrible – like sitting in a dentist’s office or the DMV.  Waiting is the worst. Most of us are conditioned to avoid waiting at all costs.  I have trouble waiting for my email to load and my Instagram to refresh.

Confessions Of A Closet Christian: Why Do We Censor God?

Jana Thumbnail Big 2

[display_podcast] When I hear the word “censor,” I think of the bleep sound I hear when someone swears on live TV.  Censoring serves its purposes. When I think about God, in my head – He’s the most important thing in my life.  But I’d rather only eat Fiber One cereal for a month than say that out loud. When it comes to God, I play the censor, I’m my own bleep button. When I tell someone about good news that was an answer to prayer, I’ll easily censor out the prayer part and just let the good … [Read more...]
