"Like the Titanic with DiCaprio" -Francis Chan?

January 30, 2015

Attention gentlemen, it’s time to buy a Valentine’s Day present (ladies have already done so). This year, we suggest a book that may add a new perspective on your relationship. In their new book, You and Me Forever, Francis and Lisa Chan set aside typical topics on marriage, and dive into scripture to understand what it means to have a relationship that satisfies the deepest parts of our soul.

The Chan’s are giving 100% of the net proceeds from You and Me Forever to various ministries that include providing food, shelter, and rehabilitation for thousands of orphaned children and exploited women around the world​.

Order You and Me Forever now to have it by Valentines Day. And just for fun, if you want to know what “Titanic and DiCaprio” has to do with any of this, watch this.

From abusive alcoholic to the most compassionate man I've ever met

January 29, 2015

True Beauty Deny Yourself Behind the Scenes

Yesterday thousands of you in 80 countries watched True Beauty Deny Yourself. In the film you met Irene who shared her personal journey; a beautiful story that has made a dramatic impact on dozens of children who had no hope.

Today I invite you to watch the rest of the story. In this behind-the-scenes clip you will meet Irene’s husband Domingo. Domingo was an abusive alcoholic who reached the end of his rope. He made a bargain with God and his story will inspire you. Please watch.

Peace,

Steve Carr
Executive Director

The solution to racial injustice

December 22, 2014

ED’S STORY Grateful

As we close out 2014 headlines across the country are filled with stories of racial injustice.  The sad headlines from New York this past weekend remind us that we live in a broken world. Public figures tell us how to react and how to respond and yet the cycle somehow continues.

In the midst of all this I am reminded of two men, Ed Dobson and Pastor Clifton Rhodes. A white man and a black man who over 20 plus years have developed a bond so strong, they consider themselves brothers. They have the answer we are all searching for; the only answer to racial injustice is living like Jesus!

Please watch their short film Grateful and share it with a friend during this Christmas season.
