Episode 6 - Hill Cities Fall 2019 Update
Hill Cities Mission is: “Serving men to go deeper with God and each other to fulfill their destiny.”  Why men? Tucker Carlson did a special entitled: Men in America. This is what he said:  Men are 2X more likely to be addicted to some drug of choice that women.  77% of all suicides in America are male! This increased by 43% from 1997-2014!  90% of the Prison Population is male.  7 million men of working age are not working. 50% are on pain meds.  Many fewer are getting married. They are more likely to live with their parents than a spouse.  Almost 50% fail the Military’s physical entrance exam.  His conclusion, Men are in crisis. When men fail we all fail! (if need to cut some thoughts out, fine)  Hill Cities has 6 groups of men that meet weekly. They are learning how to open God’s Word together and hear the voice of the Holy Spirit who has inspired His Word. We are training men to lead these groups and they are leading!  Tradition Bank hosted a couple of breakfasts where several of our groups of men came together. The purpose was to go deeper in community development and to discuss the future development of Hill Cities.

Episode 5 - Eternal Purpose
Quote: “It’s not enough to have lived. We should be determined to live for something.” Winston Churchill Challenge Questions: How do you define your purpose? Why are you here? Who are you? What happens after this life? Your life purpose consists of the central motivating aims of your life—the reasons you get up in the morning. Purpose is to guide life decisions, influence your behavior, shape your goals, offer a sense of direction, and create meaning.  More:

Episode 1 - About Men And Hearing God's Voice
To stimulate your spiritual growth this year, consider the following questions: What does this mean: “We touch the outside of the Bible, but seldom the inside?” How does your soul relate to this quote from Deuteronomy 8:3: “ Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God?” Why is it that most Christians don’t seem to know if they are hearing God’s voice or their own? Do you think it could be because they don’t seek him with the focus that is needed? We do what we desire. Are we willing to be alone with God?  Visit our website for more
