    Kimberly Yee, Arizona State Treasurer: Whether a Small Business at 7th Ave. and Buckeye or $40B at the State Capitol, Financial Wisdom is Crucial

    Kimberly Yee, Arizona State Treasurer: Whether a Small Business at 7th Ave. and Buckeye or $40B at the State Capitol, Financial Wisdom is Crucial

    Arizona State Treasurer Kimberly Yee's career is a career of "firsts".  Yee is the first Asian American woman elected to the Arizona State Legislature.   She is also the first Chinese American Republican woman to win a major statewide office in the history of the United States.  But the "first" that Kimberly Yee prefers to talk about is the prudent reality that sound financial stewardship needs to be a first priority in our homes and in educating our children.

    In today's first of two episodes featuring State Treasurer Yee, she explains how that priority became personal to her.  As part of a family that understands that legal immigration and hard work can make the American Dream a reality, she has moved from a corner market established shortly after our state was founded to managing a $40 billion cache of state savings...and growing the state's savings account by $23 billion.

    Hillorie Schrock, Northwest Christian American Sign Language Instructor: Why is the Deaf Community the World's Largest Unreached People Group?

    Hillorie Schrock, Northwest Christian American Sign Language Instructor: Why is the Deaf Community the World's Largest Unreached People Group?

    Mrs. Hillorie Schrock is the Northwest Christian high school American Sign Language instructor.   Her love for Jesus, her students, and ASL have wonderfully fused into an immersive classroom environment in which students are learning so much more than a second or third language.   Hillorie does an amazing job of conveying her love and compassion for the deaf community--a group that some of called the world's largest, unreached people group.

    What is it that has worked to make this group so difficult to evangelize?  Why are they so much more vulnerable to physical and sexual abuse?

    Answers to these questions lead into a Kingdom Culture Conversation in which Hillorie explains an innovative initiative in which she is facilitating a sign language-based video exchange between her Northwest Christian classes and deaf students at a school in Rwanda, HVP Gatagara.

    The effort is part of Northwest Christian's growing partnership with Rwanda's City of Joy Christian School.  For more on City of Joy, click here.

    Russ Miller of CreationMinistries.org: Does the Bible Really Tell Us that the World is Less than 10,000 Years Old?

    Russ Miller of CreationMinistries.org: Does the Bible Really Tell Us that the World is Less than 10,000 Years Old?

    Russ Miller pulls no punches.  He's direct.  He knows God's word.  He knows the science.  He has years of experience in the field. 

    But, is he right?  Today's Kingdom Culture Conversation is the second interview in two weeks with Russ and we invite you to decide!

    Russ is a recognized voice in the field of Biblical creationism, a powerful presenter who routinely presents creationism in churches across the country, and an accomplished authority within the science that supports a Biblical worldview of origins.  But, more to the point, he is adamant in his belief that a "young earth" perspective of creation is critical theologically and culturally.

    Will you agree?

    [Veterans Day Episode] Hollie Koenigsberg: An Iraqi War Vet and Purple Heart Recipient Recounts Her Journey from Hurt to Hope

    [Veterans Day Episode] Hollie Koenigsberg: An Iraqi War Vet and Purple Heart Recipient Recounts Her Journey from Hurt to Hope

    "Jesus loves me at the bottom of my garbage can." 

    An inescapable, inevitable truth that Hollie Koeningsberg came to realize along a long, perilous road.  An Iraqi war vet who worked in very difficult combat operations.  A Purple Heart recipient.  A former cop.  A survivor who saw her family devastated by cancer. 

    Hollie's story inspired the families, students, and veterans that came together on Wednesday, November 10th, 2021 for Northwest Christian School's all-school Veterans Day Chapel and still has everyone talking.  You will not soon forget her story as she reflects upon her life of service to the country, her insights regarding contemporary America, the lengths that our Savior will go to in order to win our hearts, and how deeply we are loved by Him.

    Hollie serves as a Director at Clydehurst Christian Ranch in Montana.  To learn more about her ministry at Clydehurst, please visit:  https://www.clydehurst.com/

    Dr. Amy Yoder of Northwest Christian: Should We Completely Avoid Literature, Movies, and Music that Do Not Agree with Biblical Worldview?

    Dr. Amy Yoder of Northwest Christian: Should We Completely Avoid Literature, Movies, and Music that Do Not Agree with Biblical Worldview?

    Dr. Amy Yoder is a cornerstone in the Northwest Christian English department.  Beloved by students although she pushes them hard, engaging in the classroom, and creative within her lessons, her courses (Honors Junior English and Honors Senior English) earn her Northwest Christian students college credit at both Grand Canyon University and Colorado Christian University.   Her research into effective spiritual formation strategies within high school students has been professionally published and she has been invited to speak on the subject at different conferences. 

    In short, she is the perfect person to ask the question, "Should we completely avoid literature, art, and music if it conflicts with a Biblical worldview?"  As an extension of the question, should be only engage artistic expression if it is created by those in a right-standing relationship with their Creator? 

    Will you agree with her answer?

    For information on Dr. Yoder's research, please click here.

    Within this episode, mention is made of a book by Dr. Roger Erdvig:  "Beyond Biblical Integration" from Summit Ministries.  For more info on the book or to read it yourself, please click here.
