Often, we think being a missionary means you have called overseas to another land, but what if God has called you to serve him at home?  Well our next guest does exactly that!

In our conversation, Kate shares her journey of faith and how using courage and bravery are a big part of her journey.

Kate also shares how to get out of your comfort zone more frequently in your every day life in order to grow your faith. 

In our challenge, be encouraged by the promise Psalm 27:14 holds and how it can help us dream bravely with the Father!

Kate Berkey is a writer and missionary in Chicago, Illinois where she serves refugee and immigrant families on the north side of the city. She has worked in ministry and discipled other believers for nearly 10 years and has served in six countries in short and long-term missions. As a writer, she has published numerous devotionals and articles for publications around the United States. Kate is all about family and deeply desires to help others find belonging in the family of the Kingdom of God.

Most often when we think of robots we think of sci-fi movies, comic books, or video games.  Something trying to take over the world or something that is larger than life.  However, robots are becoming more common in our times and are a reality.  As Christians, we don't often think of that but what should we think about robots and A.I.?  Is it something we should concern ourselves with and how should we as Christians deal with robots and A.I.?  

Our guest, Joshua Smith, actually has a lot to say on that topic!  

Josh serves as the Senior Pastor of a Southern Baptist Church in Mississippi.

He is a graduate of William Carey University, where he earned a B.A. in Religion. He holds an M.T.S from Gateway Theological Seminary. He is a recent graduate of Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, where he earned a Ph.D. in Theology. His dissertation focused on a critique of Robotic Futurism and the potential of Dehumanization.

We focus our conversation on why he wrote his dissertation on robotics and why we as Christian should be concerned with the ethics with robots!  I hope you are as challenged as I was to see that all things were made with a purpose and yes that includes robots!

The Bible is a book that is over 2000 years old and is what we Christians rely on in order to follow Jesus.  However, how do we know that the Bible hasn't been corrupted over the years?  Has it been changed to fit an agenda?  Can we truly confirm that the Bible is historically accurate?  We answer those questions in our discussion with JC Schroeder!

JC Schroeder is an Instructor at The Ezekiel Project School of Evangelism, a discipleship and ministry training ministry in the metro Detroit, MI area, with over 10 years full-time ministry experience. He is also a Th.M. student at Grand Rapids Theological Seminary.

In our challenge, we focus on how 2 Timothy 3:16 gives us the promise to confirm to others that the Bible is historically accurate and how we can share this truth with others!

Keep your eyes on Jesus and God bless!

We know as Christians, that we need to avoid the broad and wide path and stay on the narrow path to stay aligned with the way of Jesus.  However, the world makes that hard and it makes it so easy to follow the broad path as it seems better at first.  How do we stay focused on the narrow path even when the world tries to pull us off of it?

Join us with our conversation with Pastor Scott LaPierre.  Scott shares his personal journey of faith and how God led him to be a pastor.  In addition, Scott shares how we can hold on to the truth of God's Word and how that can help us and others follow that straight, narrow path that leads to God!
