Pastor Appreciation posted by John Sorensen on Oct, 15

October is Pastor Appreciation Month! The Bible gives us the best advice in Hebrews 13. "Remember your leaders who have spoken God’s word to you. As you carefully observe the outcome of their lives, imitate their faith… Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they keep watch over your souls as those who will give an account so that they can do this with joy and not with grief, for that would...  Read the full post ( 797 words, estimated 3:11 mins reading time )

Means of Growth posted by John Sorensen on Oct, 8

Have you tried to read any product labels recently?  Talk about complicated!  Have you noticed that the more advanced we make in life, the more complicated things become? Unfortunately, the same complicated approach is infiltrating our spiritual lives too. So, it’s time to get back to the basics.  The product label on the Spiritual Growth package contains five words:  Bible, Prayer, W...  Read the full post ( 694 words, estimated 2:47 mins reading time )

The Gospel has Power in the Hands of Children posted by Evangelism Explosion on Oct, 4

Travis grew up on the wrong side of the tracks and got involved in gang activity when he was in grade school. A local church launched an after-school program where Travis and his friends heard the Gospel clearly for the first time. They also learned how to share their new faith in Christ. Travis left his gang and is now serving Christ with his family. Children have a unique ability to share the...  Read the full post ( 370 words, estimated 1:29 mins reading time )

Oh, the places you’ll go! posted by John Sorensen on Oct, 1

Do you remember the book by Dr. Seuss called, Oh, the Places You'll Go! “Congratulations! Today is your day. You're off to Great Places! You're off and away!” I like the book for its optimism and expansive potential vision for children's lives.  It was that kind of hope, optimism, and vision that helped birth what became Kids' EE.  But, truthfully, not everyone thought it was...  Read the full post ( 689 words, estimated 2:45 mins reading time )

Are You a Changemaker? posted by John Sorensen on Sep, 24

You know what?  You are important in the Kingdom of God.  I say that, and I would imagine many of you nodding your head in agreement, mostly because you think you should nod.  The truth is, I find many Christians who don't really believe they are important at all.  They believe that they're important enough, or loved enough, to be saved, but they aren't quite sure what they're saved "unto". ...  Read the full post ( 713 words, estimated 2:51 mins reading time )

Do We Pray for People by Name? posted by John Sorensen on Sep, 17

I have a friend named Barry Meguiar.  One day he asked me a profound question that literally stopped me in my tracks. He asked, "John, if God would save every person that you prayed for today, asking Him to save them specifically, how many people would get saved?” I was stunned. I honestly hadn't prayed for anyone, in particular, that day.  It's not that I don't pray, but too often, I pray...  Read the full post ( 443 words, estimated 1:46 mins reading time )

Conversation Starters posted by John Sorensen on Sep, 10

When I was a child, my mom told me that there were three things that you could never talk to people about in public.  Would you like to guess what they were? I'm sure, especially for those who are a bit older, the three came right to mind.  Perhaps you were taught the same.  You can never talk about money, religion, or politics in public without causing offense. Later, I got involved in adve...  Read the full post ( 532 words, estimated 2:08 mins reading time )

Prison Ministry turns Aging Congregation Upside Down posted by Evangelism Explosion on Sep, 5

One year ago, Southern Temple Baptist Church was slowly dwindling. Located in the inner city of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, the aging congregation struggled – believing there was not much left for them to do. “They had given up on doing any kind of evangelism,” said Pastor Lynn Allen Turner, who left a street evangelism ministry to pastor the small church. Most of the 12 individuals who atte...  Read the full post ( 664 words, estimated 2:39 mins reading time )

Prison Ministry posted by John Sorensen on Sep, 2

Have you ever heard of, or used, the word, "Recidivism"?  Frankly, it's a tough word to say, but it's an important word. According to the National Institute of Justice, "Recidivism is one of the most fundamental concepts in criminal justice." It refers to a person's relapse into criminal behavior during a three-year period following the prisoner's release. The Bureau of Justice Statistics foun...  Read the full post ( 685 words, estimated 2:44 mins reading time )
