From Death to Life

Just when you feel as if all hope has been lost, God’s grace intervenes. This week, Richard shares a story from the book of John when Jesus arrived in a desperate time.

Real Time in the Marketplace

Here at Ministry in the Marketplace, we believe that everyone has a story, and while some people may have similar backgrounds, each one is unique. It’s probably safe to say that one of the main things that bring us together is this deep down desire to do something with our lives that’s worthwhile. This week’s guest knew at a very early age that he wanted to be a Pastor. Just like many of us, Sam Shaw has seen his fair share of difficulties along the way. From the physical loss of a loved one to the emotional heartache of another but Sam will be the first to tell you that God is always faithful. He has used every circumstance in Sam’s life to fulfill his desire to impact others. Click on the audio bar below to hear his story.

Peace, Be Still!

Have you ever felt like the weight of the world is on your shoulders? Does it seem like everything is crashing in around you? Today, Richard shares a story from the book of Mark when Jesus said, “Peace, Be Still!”

Real Time in the Marketplace

Studies show that most people spend the majority of their time, not with friends or family but at work. Back in 1984, a man named Gil Stricklin saw the statistics of people living out their routines just to earn a paycheck. Going day-by-day without a sense of meaning or purpose. That’s when he started Marketplace Chaplains. Now, Marketplace Chaplains is the largest and longest continuing provider of workplace chaplains to corporate America. We recently visited with Ken Phillips who is their Executive Director of Operations. Click on the audio bar below to hear his story.

Did you know that “singing” is the most reiterated command in the Bible? In Psalms it says, “Come let us sing for joy to the Lord.” Ephesians, “Sing and make music from your heart to the Lord.” Exodus, “I will sing to the Lord for He is highly exalted.” Well, this week’s guest started writing songs and playing his guitar for a small Bible study, in Arkansas. Before long, he had an opportunity to start a contemporary Christian band called Big Tent Revival. This lead to recordings,concerts, and leading thousands in worship in major arenas across America. Today, Steve Wiggins makes Memphis Tennessee his home and he’s the Contemporary Worship Pastor at Bellevue Baptist Church. You don’t have to talk to Steve for very long to find out that his passion is for teaching the Bible. Click on the audio bar below to hear his story.

Real Time in the Marketplace

It’s been said that when you meet someone for the first time, they decide what they think of you in the first 4 seconds. Today, the way a message is shared is much different than it was 20 years ago. This stunning 4 second statistic really shocked a guy named Nick Hall. During Nick’s college years, he made it his mission to make the biggest impact for Christ that he could in order to reach the 4 second generation. What started as a small campus outreach ministry, lead to travelling the world and speaking to millions of students about Jesus. Calling it the PULSE movement. Click on the audio bar below to hear Richard’s conversation with the Director of Communications for PULSE, Susan Harris!
