The Squad Movement and Resource

SQAUD is a book written to fulfill a need to remind a new generation of who Jesus is and the four foundations that make us The Foursquare Church. In a world that is getting more confusing and complex, these four foundations remind us of the simple, yet profound, transforming power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. […]

Why Nobody Wants To Go To Church Anymore

I think this is something important for NextGen leaders to be considering… not only are students leaving the church in droves, but church buildings “as a whole” are becoming empty and irrelevant in our towns and communities all over America. Europe has already been labeled a post-Christian culture and from the looks of it, America […]

We’ve read only snippets of it so far, but can already highly recommend it to you solely based on the fruit of his ministry and friendship. We really look forward to digging […]

Purity Code

It’s the month of LOVE. And it’s a great time to talk with students about relationships and purity. In 2008, Dr. Jim Burns released a book for teens entitled “The Purity Code: God’s Plan for Sex and Your Body.” The intent is for parents and youth leaders to read the book along with students. The […]

A Different Kind of Zombie

This is part 5, the last in the “Don’t Buy the Lie” series of posts on the supernatural… view the series introduction here. Read part two, “Lies from the Dark Side,” here. Part three, “Psychics and our Emotions”, here. And part four, “Ghosts, Spirits and Reincarnation”, here. Since the Garden of Eden, there has been a problem. Sin separates us from […]
