5th June

If seeking after God becomes optional, then living for God will also become optional. We must choose to be a generation that is committed to seeking after God. We are thankful for the following recent report sent in from Iowa youth president, Nate Kennedy.

Every year as Iowa winter ends in May, the Apostolic youth from across our state come together to have their first district event. It began as “UPLINK,” a part of the National Day of Prayer, and has transitioned into becoming the annual Sheaves for Christ district kick-off event. This two day gathering was not only full with services, but we also rented out a bowling center and provided meals for students. This year, General Youth President Michael Ensey preached at the event which brought record numbers. Lives were changed, new commitments were made, and several backsliders were … Read More »

19th September

Here we are again, back in the swing of life and routine that accompanies every school year. New classes, new people, new choices and chances keep this year wide open to countless possibilities.

Possibilities. What do you think of when you hear that word? Words like endless or countless—maybe even new—tend to rush to our minds. Why? Because we associate the word possibility with the idea of fresh or new beginnings; the concept that something is now possible that was not before. Sometimes our circumstances change and bring in new possibilities where there were none. Other times our circumstances change our ability to see what was there all along.

Every year since 1990, in schools around the country, students have gathered to pray on the fourth Wednesday of the month of September in a concerted effort called See You at the … Read More »

Vanity Heights: An Uplink Article

Posted by Josh Carson in Current Events, Inspirational. No Comments

13th June

Since the mid-1970s, there has been an increasingly present phenomenon in the world’s skyscrapers called “vanity height.” Basically, vanity height is the part of the building that exists only for looks. Whether it is for artistic display or breaking a height barrier, its sole purpose is appearance rather than function. Among those buildings in the world which have been able to gain the “super tall status” by the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat, 61% of them would not qualify if not for the vanity height they have.

In his final letter, Paul addresses his young protégé and tells him about a generation to come in perilous times. In addressing that generation’s attitude and spiritual condition, he wrote these words: “Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away” (II Timothy 3:5). According to … Read More »

Where Love Begins

Posted by Rachel Skirvin in Inspirational, Rachel Thorne, Valentine's Day. 1 Comment

14th February

“Valentine’s Day,” “Single’s Awareness Day,” “Flowers, Candy and Gifts Day”—however you celebrate or label it, there is one thing for certain: you cannot run away from February the fourteenth.

Every year, it comes around like clockwork. To some, it is anticipated with excitement but to others, it comes begrudgingly. Couples are everywhere, love is in the air, and little heart shapes and cupid stickers are plastered on every surface. To put this into perspective, here are some things you may not know about this “lovely” holiday.

About eight billion candy hearts will be produced this year. About one billion Valentine’s Day cards are exchanged in the U.S. each year. Approximately 189 million stems of roses are sold in the United States on Valentine’s Day. And in case you were wondering, 15% percent of U.S. women sent themselves flowers today.

11th October

Here we are, on the last day of General Conference 2013. The day began with more seminars tailored to the various needs and callings found within the church body. Some seminars included a split session for women called Ladies in Action. This was a session of seasoned women of the ministry offering their mentorship and wisdom for younger women in ministry. On the other hand, but in the same Spirit, Pastor Anthony Mangun spoke to the gentlemen of the UPCI in the Apostolic Man service.

Following the seminars, everyone gathered into The auditorium for Youth Day. It began with the sound of thousands of young people and adults, creating a sound like the abundance of thunder and rain. The former youth president, Shay Mann, announced the incredible Sheaves for Christ offering total, which was over a half a million-dollar increase from … Read More »
