The Best Summary of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood I Have Ever Seen!

March 7, 2015 by


  Greg introduced me to the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood. He heard about it through David Platt. How have I not seen their resources before?

Comments Off on He looks identical to Christ – by Kayla

Please check out this post my friend, Kayla, wrote about her experience this past weekend. THIS is the place where we must start with Jesus.

December 18, 2013 by


This is a pastor’s response to “Pastors Are Human, Too.”  I’m so thankful for his willingness to share his insights and wisdom As a young pastor, it is fascinating how people react to the office of a pastor, particularly women.
