God at Work: The Rise and Fall of Movements, with Steve Addison – EM261

God at Work: The Rise and Fall of Movements, with Steve Addison – EM261

When looking at history, it seems like church movements have a cycle of rising and falling. Steve Addison joins the show to talk about his new book called The Rise and Fall of Movements and how God works in that cycle. He speaks on how believers who value the Great Commission can keep their eyes on Jesus, His word, Spirit, and mission.

As some ministries reach a place of decline, we can remember that God is always raising up new movements. He keeps working to draw us back to Him. The important thing is for us to seek God and walk in obedience to Him.

Every Part Is Important: How to Live a Missional Lifestyle, with David P Jacob – EM260

Right now, he is the director of Center for Missionary Mobilization and Retention. The organization works to help those who are called to be missionaries around the world.

David shares about his new book, It’s Your Call, which focuses on the importance of seeking God above calling. He talks about how to develop a missional lifestyle and how every part of the Body of Christ is important. Whether it’s finances, prayer, or encouragement, each believer has a part to play in the Great Commission.

Just One: How to Love Long-Term Across the World, with Ann Hinrichs – EM258

Just One: How to Love Long-Term Across the World, with Ann Hinrichs – EM258

Learning to love others long-term is a big part of missions and ministry. Sometimes that love can be easier said than done. In this week’s episode, Ann Hinrichs joins us again to talk about her new book, Just One, which is about her long friendship with a man in Belize. Through their friendship, Ann learned more about intercultural ministry and her friend came to know Jesus.

Ann also shares the importance of depending on God. Focusing on obedience is better than looking for results. Throughout the episode, she reminds us of God’s guidance and steadfast love. We look more like Him when we are willing to love another person for as long as the Lord leads.
