By far one of the most painful parts of life is enduring conflicts with those we love and care for. Pain, sorrow, difficulty, and even depression follow unresolved conflicts.

Is there is a biblical roadmap as a leader to help resolve conflict? Join Pastor Ed today as helps us learn the pathway of Jesus in handling conflicts biblically.
Why is the Church on the earth today? There are many good answers to this questions. We are here to glorify God, worship Him alone, love, evangelize, and so many others.

Leading in a culture that is ever changing and very much secular is challenging. The moral compass of our world has shifted and changed so much. How do we reach our culture with the gospel when it seems like our culture has gone off the rails, especially in their definition of sexuality? Recently author and professor, Dr. Christopher Yuan, sat down with Pastor Ed to discuss the importance of a Holy Sexuality and the need for grace and love when reaching out to those who are living in immortal sexual lifestyles. The conversation was probing and liberating. Love conquers all!
One of the underrated value of any team is likemindedness. We all want it but don't speak much about it. Some demand conformity. Others don't have a solid direction.

In today's episode, Pastor Ed talks about the importance of likemindedness.
No one in their right mind wants to be a bad leader, yet there are many and the ranks are growing. How do we know what a bad leader looks like? What are the characteristics to watch out for?

Weakness is not seen as a valuable ingredient in serving. So much energy and effort is spent trying to be strong, stay strong, and stay on the cutting edge. But It's important to realize how important weakness is in your servanthood. It's in weakness that God's strength is made perfect. I learned this personally after the death of our son, 6 years ago, on May 27th, 2013.
