Dr. Robert Barriger and his wife Karyn pastor one of the most significant churches in Latin America, Camino de Vida in Lima, Peru. His global ministry to pastors and churches have taken him across Peru and across the nations establishing Pastor Barriger as a pastor to pastors. His writings and training have helped hundreds of churches grow, impact their community and build healthy families. He is considered one of the foremost teachers on John's book, the last book in the bible - Revelation.
Here is an eye-opening myth shattering conversation on the hope God brings to us from the book of Revelation - the full title giving away the secret of it - The Revelation of Jesus Christ. What do all the signs mean? Is this a book of judgement? Is the world on the edge of destruction? Real answers give us real hope and it's one of the most intriguing, enlarging and encouraging conversations you will ever hear.
One of the most powerful marks of the church Robert and Karyn pastor in Lima is the community and national outreaches they undertake. During the most recent Covid-19 lockdowns Camino de Vida fed over 300,000 people and helped hundreds recover their health. Thousands of physically challenged poor have been given wheel chairs. Hundreds of churches across South America are directly impacted every month by the pastoral and volunteer training that comes from Camino de Vida. This is a high impact, high touch church and mission outreach. Dr. Barriger serves on the Board of Christian Men's Network and heads up the large men's movement in Latin America called Red de Hombres.
BraveMen S3E88: Charles Martin - Turning the World Upside Down
Today on Brave Men one of America’s eminent storytellers, best-selling author Charles Martin, jumps into the middle of the story of Jesus and his disciples. From his acclaimed book, They Turned The World Upside Down: A Storyteller’s Journey With Those Who Dared To Follow Jesus, host Paul Cole and Charles walk through the dusty roads of the early church bringing to life the struggles, triumphs and challenges of carrying the message of Jesus to the world.
In the first century, a believer didn’t just mean someone who heard and agreed with Jesus; it meant someone who acted on that belief. And when the outside world saw the faith of these new believers, they declared “they turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6). This is a picture of brave men.
Charles Martin is a New York Times best-selling author of fifteen novels: They Turned The World Upside Down: A Storyteller’s Journey With Those Who Dared To Follow Jesus, The Water Keeper, What If It's True?: A Storyteller’s Journey with Jesus, and The Mountain Between Us, to name a few. The Mountain Between Us was made into a major motion picture by 20th Century Fox starring Kate Winslet and Idris Elba. Charles currently lives in Jacksonville, Florida with his wife and three boys. He spends his free time bow hunting, working out and doing Tae Kwon Do.
