My heart grieved as I watched the events unfold yesterday in our nation’s capital as a mob of protesters forced their way into the Capitol Building in Washington, DC.

But as we enter into another Christmas celebration, let us remember that the greatest gift was not a last minute decision but...Keep Reading

We've compiled a list of the books each of us has found most helpful in 2015 which we hope are helpful for you as well....Keep Reading
I love so many things about Perspectives. But what I love most is what motivated me to change. It’s wasn’t a powerful speaker (though there are great speakers). It’s wasn’t the numbers, although the need is urgent. It was the simplicity and inarguable truth of looking at Scripture. I was motivated by focusing on God’s heart and his mission....Keep Reading
