Godly Fathers

Godly Fathers 1

First, to be godly fathers, we must know and love God ourselves (1 John 4:8). To play a part in passing on our faith, we must first possess it. Perhaps the next greatest gift we can give our children is to love and honor our wives. We’re told in Ephesians 5:25 to do so as […]

The Measure of a Man

The Measure of a Man 2

Why We Do VBS

Why We Do VBS 4

Relevant! Significant! Vital! Useful! Strategic! These may not be the first words that come to your mind when you think of Vacation Bible School but since at least 1898 VBS has been part of the landscape of many evangelical churches.

Join the Choir

Join the Choir 5

Calling all worship leaders… You may think that “if you can sing, you should join the choir…” However, choir is a place for musicians AND “not so much” musicians. It’s a place where you can worship, grow, fellowship, share, and serve. It’s less about music and more about creating, preparing, and leading an environment that […]

BOLT Totally 80s VBS

BOLT Totally 80s VBS 6

Why do we spend so much time decorating, the effort of many volunteers, and the expense for one RAD TO THE MAX week each summer? Could these resources be used better elsewhere?

Don’t Waste Your Summer

Don't Waste Your Summer 7

“What are you doing this summer?” It’s the perennial question for students and teachers and for families as the days grow longer and warmer and schedules seem to become a little freer.

The Gospel in Guatemala

The Gospel in Guatemala 12

Guatemala has been called “the most evangelical country in Latin America.” Catholics and Protestants have focused their mission efforts here, and you can see the results by the number of churches. On the surface, it appears that Christianity is thriving. You’re probably wondering, “Why then do we send a team there every year? “The truth is that similar to America, Guatemala […]
