THE GREATEST STORY – YOUR STORY

When I meet people I steer the conversation to discover / uncover their story
Who they are
Where they are from (physical – roots)
Where they have been (life experiences)
Where they are going (dreams and goals)
I want to understand what matters to them as a person – as a human being
I hear some neat stories

So, You Are Saved – Now What?

The Christian faith is an exciting adventure that begins when you encounter Jesus and become born again
When you are first saved everything begins to change
The grass seems greener, the sky appears bluer…
But, then, reality sets in and things need to be dealt with on a daily basis
Life issues, problems, temptations, wrong thoughts just to name a few of the things that make up your “daily reality”
There are things that you did before you were born again and began your journey with Jesus that now need to be dealt with
You planted the seeds back then and now that you are saved you are dealing with the harvest
“That which you sow, you shall reap” (Galatians 6:7)

HOW TO LIVE A DYNAMIC, LIFE-CHANGING FAITH

Remember your days in geometry?

Did you have a teacher who diagrammed what a difference a degree makes the farther you get from the point of origin?

Example:

If you were travelling toward a specific destination and were off by a single degree – after one foot you would be off course by only 0.2 inches. Hardly even noticeable to the naked eye, right?

But what happens if you travel a longer distance?

After a mile, you would be off target by 92 feet Read more

Apostolic trip to Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh (now known as the Republic of Artsakh) – March 2018

Ralph worked in a number of cities in the nation of Armenia for two weeks in March of this year. He visited and ministered in a number of churches where he had previously ministered in past trips. He was pleased to be able to renew relationships and to build new ones in each city. He also had a number of opportunities to minister directly to the leadership of several churches as well as the youth of the People of God Church in Yerevan (capital city) who met with him at their camp site for a day of ministry.

Flag of Nagorno-Karabakh (now known as the Republic of Artsakh)

During this trip he also had the honour of ministering for three days in the nation of Artsakh. This was his first visit to this nation and the 7 hour drive through the rugged mountains was breathtaking and amazing to say the least. He ministered in an amazing young church in this nation and prophesied over ever member while there for a number of services.

A big thank you goes out to Rafi Shahverdyan (apostle) and Samvel Kharatyan (pastor and apostle-in-training) for their warm welcome and tremendous hospitality

BECAUSE OF EASTER 

It was Easter Sunday for the Ibuga Christians of Western Tanzania. 

In one village, a large crowd had gathered to worship. 

Many came out of curiosity to hear about a God who conquered death. 

While they were singing and praising God, they didn’t know the danger that awaited them. 

At that moment, a crazed mother lion was stalking their village, not killing to eat, but just killing every living thing in sight. 

She killed several goats, cows, and a woman with a small child. Then she turned toward the singing worshipers. 

When they saw her standing ready to charge, the crowd froze in fear.  Read more

ROAD SIGNS ON THE CHRISTIAN JOURNEY

This teaching is a follow-up and continuation to a teaching entitled: “A Hunger For More”

As we continue to hunger and thirst for more and move deeper into our relationship with Jesus and His people, the Church …

There are 9 road signs to help guide and direct us on our journey

The Bible states:

“I will instruct you and teach you in the way you should go.” Psalm 32:8

A look back…

It’s 100 AD and you’re driving your chariot down a Roman road.

You come to a crossroad and see a sign that tells you to stop to wait for passing traffic.

Amazingly, even in Roman times, traffic signs were useful and very much a part of the culture of the time.

Fast forward to the 21st century when a modern the highway is decorated with many different types of signs – some advertising products but a good number giving directions indicating what is ahead on your journey… Read more
