church

The institution of the church has always held within it scoundrels, egomaniacs, dishonest leaders and people who didn’t give a rip about real needs.

church practical theology preaching youth ministry

A mother recently wrote and told me of her son’s interest in theology after stumbling onto my lectures on YouTube. She asked if I would send a note for his birthday, since he has expressed an interest in studying theology in the hope of becoming a teacher.

Join Steve Brown and Zach Van Dyke as they talk with Pete Alwinson about pastoring in the freedom of God’s unconditional love.
