3 Specific Ways to Pray for Others to Come to Jesus Christ

  The local churches, denominations, ministries, and the prayer movement in America cannot be separated from evangelism. Consider this: If prayer and the desire for evangelism are genuine, they happen simultaneously. Are local churches, denominations, ministries and the prayer movement in America praying for others to come to Jesus Christ? Are you praying for others to come to Jesus Christ? Do you call out specific names to God each day? America needs Jesus Christ more now than ever before. Our hearts should be broken over the lostness of America and the world. Mocking it helps no one. Ignoring it does... Read more >>

5 Keys in a Pastor's Marriage

Following a pastor’s personal salvation and his surrender to the call of God to ministry, I believe his choice of a wife is the most critical decision he can make relating to his life and ministry. I know this, not just by observing the lives of other pastors, but from my own marriage. I have not always made the best decisions. But when I made a decision to marry Jeana Thomas, it was a great one. Through forty years of marriage, we have learned the value of one another and the value of living life and doing ministry together. I... Read more >>

America Needs Jesus More Now than Ever Before

Religion is not the way to God. Morality is not the way to God. Goodness is not the way to God. Money is not the way to God. There are not multiple ways to God. There is only one way, and it is through Jesus Christ alone. Jesus Christ is the only way to know God personally. Look Around and See the Lostness America is lost without Jesus Christ. We are a nation of people who are lacking meaning and purpose. How much longer will people keep killing other people? How much longer will people keep abusing others? How much... Read more >>

Denominations, Conventions, and Networks, Join Us in Praying for America in 2018

While the churches of America are God’s footprints in our nation, denominations, conventions, and networks provide leadership, organization, and service to these churches. There are over 200 denominations in America. Additionally, there are many groups that function like a denomination, but do not label themselves as one. While some of these groups may come together around their doctrine or mission, others come together around both. While the doctrinal, missional, and practical variances are real among these groups, is there anything we can do together? There is at Least One Thing We Can Do Together: Pray for America  If Christians are going... Read more >>

When the Pastor Receives Criticism

After thirty-one years of serving the same church, I can assure you that as a pastor, you will receive criticism. Understanding this is part of reality will help see you through the grim times. I know many pastors, and each one has undergone criticism. Criticism is inescapable in the life of a pastor. Few things challenge a pastor more than criticism.  There have been times when criticism has absolutely devastated me. It is especially difficult to receive criticism when given by someone you respect deeply or by someone who has completely misunderstood a situation. Criticism can sideline or paralyze you, or...
