Arguing With God

God won’t take “no” for an answer. Most of us know the story. Moses was asked by God to be a deliverer for millions of Israelites. Among so many excuses that Moses gave the Lord, God wouldn’t take “no” for an answer. It’s amazing to me that God did not vent His anger at the amount of Moses’ negotiations.

e2e labs

We hope you join us in Cleveland, TN on Monday, November 3 and Tuesday, November 4 for our 3rd annual e2e labs! What are e2e labs? In short, they are Intensive Training Labs that Equip Church Leaders. As leaders in His Church, we MUST keep our ministries focused on empowerment rather than entitlement. God’s desire for His Church is not that one man would stand in a pulpit and call down the power of God. It is not that the local churches would wait on the one man to do the ministry and accomplish the mandate. God’s desire is to […]
