North American Youth Congress 2017, Wednesday Night

Faith Factor

Expectation was as high and so were the hairstyles as over 34,000 young people poured into the Lucas Oil Stadium for the first night of North American Youth Congress 2017.

The night began with the North American Talent Search as the sound of exuberant worship filled the stadium. Each contestant and group used their talent by singing praises to God. Following the talent search, Christian Life College took the stage and continued in the spirit of worship and praise. The church was then led in a focused prayer for the service. We were exhorted to pray not merely a simple prayer to receive something from God, but to experience a demonstration of God’s glory and power. At the conclusion of prayer, a powerful video began to play on all the screens that reminded us this is that which was … Read More »



Logic vs Faith

Has God ever asked you do something that would most likely make you look like an idiot according to certain standards? Does He ask you to do things that do not seem to make sense at the moment? My answer to these questions is a huge, resounding “yes”! He enjoys asking me to do things that would not make logical sense to most people. If this also applies to you, then we are in good company. He has always specialized in asking His people to walk by faith rather than what seems like the best and most logical option; to trust Him when we would rather choose an alternate route.

When young David marched onto the battlefield to face the giant we know as Goliath, it was a decision that seemed as far from logical as anything you might imagine. … Read More »



Easy Questions. Hard Answers.

What do you believe?

I never considered the difficulty somebody my age might have answering that. We are subject to the teachings of the society around us—both conservative and liberal views fight for our passion and zeal. I’ve always had opinions; even when I was young, I had an idea of how things should go and would rally for the rest of the group to follow my advice. It was a matter of innocent ideas and preferences, but as I got older, my tendencies remained and my scope broadened.

You see, as you get older you have to make decisions on things like moral standards, life direction, people, places, right and wrong, and on and on. It’s the stuff on which you build your life and who you will be defined as. Yet, even with these heavy things on the table, … Read More »

“You’ll never know what faith is
Until you don’t understand.
Sometimes it takes the silence
To finally hear His plan”

If you have ever whispered the words “God, where are You?” at some point in your life, I want you to pay very close attention to this article. If you’ve had thoughts or said things similar to this, you are not alone. It is a testing and tricky position to be in, but take heart, even when you feel like God is 10,000,000 miles away, He has not left your side.

Now it is time to step on board the “By Faith” train and join the billions of others who have sat right where you are and said the same things you have. In fact, I will venture to say everyone who walks with God the way He asks has to board this train … Read More »



My SFC Scholarship

29th January

Often in the Bible, we see a man or woman of God walking by faith and obedience to what the Lord has promised them. Abraham was asked to leave his home in Haran to go to a land the Lord had promised him (Genesis 12:1-4). He was leaving the comfort of his home, the familiarity of the land in which he resided, and the convenient proximity to his family. His choice was being done in faith and obedience to what God had asked him to do, and by that faith, Abraham was blessed (Genesis 24:1); others were blessed by him (Galatians 3:6-8); and he became the father of the nation of Israel as we know it today (Isaiah 41:8).

Although God has not spoken to me about a promised land or told me that all the nations of the world … Read More »
