The Leadership Conversation: What is a Leader?


by Mary Meadows Do you identify as a leader? If you had asked me this question three years ago I would have called you crazy. I am an extreme introvert. As a result, the thought of being a leader—of telling people what to do or making decisions for a group—made me want to retreat to my quiet corner of the world and hide behind the cover of a book. Not only am I an introvert, but I’m really good at helping out behind the scenes. Do you need kitchen help at a church hosted dinner? No problem! Music selected and organized [...]

Leadership Essentials: Inside Artios Christian College


by Caitlin Meadows There are essentials to every recipe that lay the foundation for the dish. While some ingredients can easily be substituted, these essential ingredients cannot be replaced and should not be left out. Case in point: The first time my husband Adam and I hung out, I decided I wanted to impress him with my delicious chocolate chip cookies. We were at my brother’s house and it was a spontaneous idea so I didn’t give myself time to go to the store first. Confidently I got going with the recipe from memory. Eggs? Check. Sugar and brown sugar? Check [...]

What is the Mission of the Church?


by Lisa Harp Hinds Does the church have a mission to fulfill in this increasingly chaotic time? Can and should we make a difference in the world today? Yes, yes, and yes! Then what is the mission of the church? 4 purposes that make up the mission of the church: to worship God (John 4:23-24; Rom. 14:11; Rev. 7:10-12) to preach the gospel (Matt. 7:36-38; 24:14; 28:18-20; Mark 13:10; 16:15-16; 1 Cor. 9:14; 2 Tim. 4:2) to nurture believers (Acts 14:21-22; I Cor. 14:26; I Thess. 3:12; 4:9; 5:11-15; I Tim. 5:1-4; Titus 2:1-8) to serve humanity (Matt. 5:40-45; 7:11-13; 1 [...]

I Dreamed of the Kingdom of God


by Donna Foster I used to believe that John was making up the story about man’s final destiny. I was reading the Book of Revelation and became fascinated with its story. Some parts made me feel afraid. It kind of reminded me of the movie “Early Edition.” To read a book and become so enthralled is as if you were a part of its written story. Amazing! The book came alive; it put me in imagination mode. I twitched my lips and used my left hand to cover my face from the hot glaring sun. I rested my head against the [...]

Where and When is the Kingdom?


by Loren Gjesdal Every attentive reader of the New Testament should pause when they read these words of Jesus: For the Son of Man is going to come in the glory of His Father with His angels, and WILL THEN REPAY EVERY MAN ACCORDING TO HIS DEEDS. “Truly I say to you, there are some of those who are standing here who will not taste death until they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom” (Matthew 16:27-28). It has been nearly 2,000 years since Jesus spoke these words, and we are quite confident all who heard them have tasted death, yet [...]
