My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one: I in them and you in me. May they be brought to complete unity to let the world know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me. -  John 17:20-23 The end of Jesus’ prayer can seem rather foreign in today’s ever-individualized society, even amongst the Body of ...
In the nearly 50 years since its inception, YWAM's activities have expanded from youth-focused short term evangelistic missionary journeys to include educational training, church planting, business as mission, and relief and development services.

the baptist testimony - volume 54 number 10 november-december 2008
will now be a bi-monthly publication. This means that the amount of issues published per year will be reduced from 11 to 6. To compensate for the reduced amount of issues, each issue of the Baptist Testimony will now be six pages instead of four. The publication schedule for the six issues will be: January-February / March-April / May-June / July-August / September-October / November-December. The reason for this change is two-fold. First, we are adjusting the frequency of publication due to the consistent increase in mail costs and the negative impact this has upon the MARBC budget. The second reason involves the ... market research, surveys and trends
Leading VS Managing - Tony Morgan | Catalyst
a few months ago. This quote from Wayne Cordeiro, the senior pastor of New Hope Christian Fellowship in Oahu, Hawaii keeps reverberating through my brain. In describing some practices he changed as a result of dealing with ministry burnout, he offered this: “I’ve learned that God has made me to be a leader, not a ‘manager.’ I was pulled in to ‘managing’ for a few years as my main course. That diminished my leadership immune system, and I became susceptible to contagious maladies such as discouragement, exasperation, and being demotivated by others.” There is a distinction between leading ... market research, surveys and trends


Parchment and Pen » What Complementarianism is Really all About
characteristics that define each group. In other words, I don’t think that they are helpful in defining what it means to be a complementarian or egalitarian and they serve to cause a great deal of misunderstanding that leads to emotional bias that is very difficult to overcome once set. In fact, I am going to say something very radical here and then explain. Here it goes: It is possible to be a complementarian and believe that a women can serve in the position of head pastor over men. Did you get that? Reread it. Reread it again… Complementarianism is not first defined by it view of the roles of men and women in the ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
First Baptist Church of Paducah, KY - Loving God, Loving People
Accepting First Baptist Church's call to be pastor on June 3, 2007, was an overwhelming privilege.  As I think about the tremendous responsibility to lead this congregation, I am both deeply humbled and genuinely enthusiastic about all that God has for us as we move forward together in the days, months, and years that lie ahead.  I am honored to join the long lineage of what God has done in and through the people known as First Baptist Church in Paducah, Kentucky.  Motivated by the call of God and dependant on His grace and guidance, it is my intention, in addition to faithful pastoral ministry, ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Don't shoot politicians for selfish electorate
In the days well before ancient Greeks ever toyed with pseudo-democracy, a biblical sage wrote, ''Where there is no vision, the people perish''. Yet history suggests leaders with vision may not necessarily be as politically desirable as theory might have us believe. Visionary leadership seeks to take people into a new, morally engaging and uplifting future. Two notable examples, frequently referenced in these types of discussions, are Martin Luther King and President John F. Kennedy. In his ''I have a dream'' speech, King gave a compelling vision to the American nation in less than two ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Cafe aims to make a difference
There’s a lot more brewing at the Un Mundo Cafe on Fountain Avenue in Springfield than just a great cup of coffee. With a desire to “share the love of God from the coffee grower to the coffee drinker and beyond,” Un Mundo operates on biblical principles to benefit local community ministries. The cafe practices fair trade by purchasing coffee directly from farmers in small villages who can’t compete with bigger suppliers that grow and sell coffee in large quantities. Dave Black, a Cedarville University graduate and the cafe’s general manager, explained the importance of this direct approach. ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Christian Leadership Center
We believe that Christian Leadership is ultimately expressed through the life and words of Jesus as expressed in the Bible. We take the radical view presented in Philippians 2 that Jesus came to this world to demonstrate the character of God. In doing so, He demonstrated the highest form of leadership, the leadership provided by a servant-more to the point, a bondservant, one who presents himself to another in servitude. "Therefore, if there is any encouragement in Christ, any comfort provided by love, any fellowship in the spirit, any affection or mercy, complete my joy and be of the same mind, by having the same love, ...

Genesis 3:16 says man shall rule over women, Biblical people, how ...
I'm sure I will get many opinions here, but as Biblical scholars or readers of the Word, does this specifically imply that men rule over women according to the Bible or is this verse taken out of context. ??? 16To the woman He said, "I will greatly multiply Your pain in childbirth, In pain you will (A)bring forth children; Yet your desire will be for your husband, And (B)he will rule over you." It's part of God's curse. He said that the woman would "desire" her husband. That doesn't mean that she would desire to love him. It's the same word used in Genesis 4 when God told Cain that ...
