    Sow to Reap

    Sow to Reap

    In an age where almost anything goes, how can we equip and empower Christians to believe and live the Christian faith, and how can we equip and empower the church to evangelise? 
    In the book of Ecclesiastes, King Solomon describes our ignorance of the works of God and of the future. In particular, how we do not know which seeds will germinate and produce fruit. The Bible has a great deal to say about sowing and reaping, and we know that wherever there is reaping, the hard work of sowing needs to have been done first. At the time, sowing may seem unrewarding as the harvest is so many months away, but how can we expect to reap if there has been no sowing?
    Let's join Tony as he shares seven helpful principles to help us evangelise effectively.

    Decompression after Mission

    Decompression after Mission

    For many Christians returning from mission trips, it can feel hard to settle back into normal life. We’re bursting with stories of redemption and renewal. We’ve witnessed the faith of the persecuted and the joy of the poor. We’re resolved to live generously after encountering sprawling slums and rundown orphan homes. Yet, no matter what we’ve experienced, people at home appear uninterested and just don't seem to get it. After a day or two, we are left feeling exhausted and frustrated. The feeling that life is about to go "back to normal" is depressing. 
    Depression has a long history of being misunderstood, both by the larger culture and, unfortunately, by the church. For many of us, shame and stigma can cause us to keep our struggles with mental health issues hidden from our friends, our church communities, and even from God himself. How can Christians be clinically depressed? Is there a Biblical explanation for this?
    Let's join Tony as he explores four phases everyone goes through after a mission trip and explains how they can grow our maturity and faith.

    The Great Commission, Part 2

    The Great Commission, Part 2

    Most Christians agree that when Jesus told his followers to go and make disciples of all nations, he gave the church its mission until the end of the age. It is much harder, however, to gain consensus on how the church is to fulfil that mission today.  
    The Great Commission is one of the most significant passages in the Bible – and yet somewhere along the way Christians seem to have lost confidence that the Bible actually gives the church instructions for fulfilling it. Despite the simplicity and clarity of our Lord's mandate we seem so far off course from this mission today. What fundamental truths could we be missing, and what changes do we need to make in our lives "to make disciples of all the nations"?
    Let's join Tony as he examines the last recorded personal instruction given by Jesus to His disciples in this concluding part of the Great Commission.

    The Great Commission, Part 1

    The Great Commission, Part 1

    When most of us think of the “Great Commission,” we start with the word “go.” The gist of Christ’s command is that we are to go into all the world and make disciples of all nations, baptising and teaching, right? But Matthew’s version of the Commissioning scene doesn’t start with “go.”
    The commission itself is sandwiched between two statements related to Jesus Christ: the first concerns His authority, and the second concerns His empowering presence. So, what is the mission of the church, and what does the Great Commission mean to us today?
    Let's join Tony as he discusses how the Commission is based on truth and examines the authority of Jesus in this first part of the Great Commission.

    Walking in Faith

    Walking in Faith

    The Christian walk is a relationship with God, so what does it mean when we don’t feel our faith? Does it mean God is distant or that perhaps He doesn’t care? Does it mean Christianity is false? 
    The emotional connection in the Christian walk is an important one. So, what does it mean when the emotions are not there? There are times when every Christian feels like God has disappeared, when our faith feels distant and unsatisfying. What is God doing in those instances - and more importantly, how should we react?
    Let's join Tony as he discusses the importance of our connection with God and shares six characteristics of what it means to be walking in faith.

    Red, Amber, Green

    Red, Amber, Green

    One of the most frustrating and discouraging aspects of the Christian life is struggling with sin. While it’s true that we have been filled with the Holy Spirit and sin’s ultimate control over us has been broken, we still often find ourselves doing things we hate, saying things that we know are wrong, and feeling attracted to things that we know are evil. At times, the battle feels overwhelming.  
    Sin is a reality with which we all must live. No one can escape the struggles we have with rebelling against God’s call on our lives. However, it is possible to choose whether one will vigorously fight the battle against the flesh or not. The battle can be overwhelming, but it does not have to result in demoralising defeat. How can we have victory in overcoming sin?
    Let's join Tony as he unpacks three practical strategies, we can use to overcome sin.

This is a man of God

Very rarely do I come across anyone who loves Jesus as much as this man. We are commanded (by Jesus) to share the gospel, NOT win souls, that’s HIS (God’s part). Just share the gospel. And if you don’t know how, who better to teach you than Tony. I’ve just spent a weekend with him and a fire I once had for spreading the gospel has just been rekindled.

Fantastic

Absolutely amazing. I never tire of hearing Tony and the way that he teaches about the most important message of all - The Gospel

Trudi White ,

Inspired biblical teaching on evangelism

Spoken with passion, this has reminded me of my first love for Jesus and reminds as well as motivates me to go and proclaim the Gospel message to family, friends, colleagues and even strangers even in the busyness of life.
