Upcoming Secret Pastor’s Conference

As I announced earlier this year, this fall, I will be a key-note speaker at a secret international pastors and leaders conference in a part of the world that is in great need of encouragement and equipping specifically to rise to meet the great challenge of Islam. I want to extend a very big thank you to those who helped make the trip possible. As the conference draws near, one of the great needs in this part of the world is scholarships for pastors who do not have enough money to travel to the event. Those may feel led to give can donate to “Christar” and designate it in the memo line for “From Everywhere to Everywhere” project account. The gifts are tax deductible.

N.T. Wright’s Perversion of Biblical Hope

In a previous article, I touched on N.T. Wright’s perspective concerning the return of Jesus.
