A Life Changed Online

Here is the testimony of a person in Georgia, US who came to church online last week:

“I WAS LOST AND HAD FORGOTTEN WHO OR WHAT GOD REALLY WAS AND STOOD FOR FOR MY LIFE TY (thank you) FOR YOUR SHOW TO BE HONEST I WAS LOOKING AT SOME GIRLS DANCING ON YOU TUBE AND WAS GOING TO ANOTHER SITE THAT I KNOW THAT WAS WRONG WHEN YOU GUYS SITE POPPED UP AND IT DRAWED ME AND I NEVER MADE IT TO THAT OTHER SITE I WAS DRAWN TO LIFE CHURCH I KNOW THAT WAS GOD TY (thank you)”

Global Collaboration – Are You In?

Friends and ministry partners of ours in Gold Coast, Australia who promote OPEN globally like we do had an amazing experience today. An email was sent informing people in Manila, Philippines that a team will be there in 3 weeks and available to meet. Within 2 hours’ time 25 people replied they will attend. One can only imagine what could come of this global collaboration!

Do you live in a country other than the United States? We have teams in the United Kingdom, United States, and Australia who want to support you in your ministry. Would you like a visit in your country?

Gazelle Intensity (Dave Ramsey Style)

This week we’re sharing an exercise our family in engaged in during the Dave Ramsey church online series last month. We had wonderful feedback and good participation within the community so it’s important to share it in our personal blog as well.

I remember staying up late at night to sell items on eBay and Amazon.com when we were working to pay off debt. We had several garage sales, too. As time went on it seemed we were finally climbing out from the mountain of belongings under which we’d become buried. Even now that our debt is long gone we find it easy to accumulate things that we simply do not need.

Are you ready to use the gazelle intensity Dave Ramsey speaks of to pay off your debt or pare down your own mountain of unnecessary things that fill your life with clutter?

Watch this video clip to learn how our family is responding to Dave’s message this week, and commit yourself to a debt or accumulation busting activity right now! (It’s not difficult – look around where you’re sitting right now. There’s probably something you could give to a neighbor or sell!)

Submit a comment below to let us know what you’re doing with gazelle intensity!

Town Hall for Hope

Dave Ramsey announced on his radio program a national event called Town Hall for Hope. We will be partnering with Dave by hosting and broadcasting this first-of-a-kind event from LifeChurch.tv. This will be an awesome opportunity to help bring a message of hope to our nation in these uncertain economic times—and your church can participate for free!

On April 23 at 7:00 p.m. CT/8:00 p.m. ET, thousands of churches will be joining us in hosting the live town hall via a simulcast web stream. Dave will be answering questions from people across the nation via video, phone, twitter, facebook and more as we learn more about what’s happening with the economy, how we got here, and where we’re going. The Town Hall for Hope is free to attend and free to host, which can make it an incredible outreach event for your church. In just the first 8 hours since the event was announced, over 900 churches signed up to be a host site! There are a ton of exciting details coming in the coming days. You can learn more and sign up now at http://www.townhallforhope.com.

I believe that in times like these, the Church has an enormous opportunity to provide Hope to a world that is searching for it. It’s an honor to partner with Dave for this event, and we can’t wait to see how God uses it to transform lives!
