Hope, Joy, Victory!

God the Father gave His Son, so that His Son could give us life!
I want to share with you a message of hope surrounding this special time of year. I pray these truths encourage you, as they have me. And if you find yourself in a season of pain right now… keep believing!
Hold on to Hope!

A Story of Love in Action

In a time when social media, news outlets, political parties, and church affiliations can be emotional sources of division, hurt, fear and distraction; I want to pause the noise and remind you, through this encouraging story, about the power of love.
Our prayer is this story would spur us onward to loving those around us with intentionality and compassion.
Love in action has the innate ability to transform hearts, families, churches, communities and ultimately, the world!
Be encouraged!

Despegar – Global Virtual Conference Training

The heartbeat of our ministry is Jesus and His Gospel! We are passionate about training others to know Him and make Him known! One of our most recent endeavors is called LED Global — a global conference designed to train and prepare in Leadership, Evangelism, and Discipleship.
August 21 & 22, our Spanish World Team held our first-ever (virtual) LED event! 790 pastors and leaders from 17 countries attended the private trainings. Our hearts are so encouraged, and our team is already gearing up for our next virtual conference — September 4 & 5 — called Despegar. This time our focus will be to help “lift” teachers and leaders of Children’s Ministry!

Blast From the Past Series, Part 4: Take Courage

This month’s Blast From the Past reminds us that…
“God, who began a good work within you,
will continue His work until it is finally finished
on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”
(Philippians 1:6).
So take courage — God is at work in you and through you!

Blast From the Past Series, Part 3

What would it take for us to see clearly; to move past the photo and realize that the image is a life being lived in this moment?
As we navigate life in today’s world, our passion to see people through God’s eyes grows even stronger.
Thank you for joining us in this work.
We cherish the privilege of partnering with you.
Enjoy this Blast From The Past!

Take Heart!

When we think about these three characteristics of God: His Omnipresence, His Omniscience, and His Omnipotence, you and I can take heart knowing He is HERE, THERE, and ABLE!
Let me explain…
1. He is Omnipresent: Where I have been, where I am now, where I will be – He was, He is, and He will be to come (Revelation 1:8). He is HERE, right now: in our pain, our illness, our crisis, our fears, our joys, our hopes, and in all of our tomorrows. Implication: we are never alone!
2. He is Omniscient: Everything I’d like to know, He already knows. We can’t see what the future holds, but He can, because He is already THERE. Implication: He can be trusted wholly and fully!
3. He is Omnipotent: For all the things I wish I could do or have the power to overcome, He is ABLE. Implication: He has already claimed the victory!
Therefore, I am declaring that you and I NEED NOT FEAR in present circumstances or in future troubles, because Christ the Lord is near!
Friends, when life knocks the wind out of you and tries to keep you down… let us “take heart,” and remember Who has already overcome!

Mike Silva – Faith Talk Message, Part 1

I don’t know about you, but I sometimes wrestle with fear and faith, especially in the recent days of waiting and watching the reports of this worldwide health crisis of coronavirus (COVID-19) unfold.

Perhaps the same is true for you too?

Join us each Thursday over the next three weeks for our “faith talks” as we unpack some encouraging “faith” truths!
