You Can’t Be God’s Friend without This
According to a recent Barna study, church dropouts have risen to 64%. Only one in four Americans are a practicing Christian—a number that has dropped in half since 2000. Why? What is missing from our churches?
In this week’s episode of Conversations, John and Lisa Bevere dive deep into the often missing ingredient for true intimacy with God: the fear of the Lord.
Fearing God is very different than being afraid of God. Instead, it’s the key to everything.
Join us as we discuss how this healthy, holy, and largely forgotten virtue is the uncommon path to a more fulfilled and fruitful life.

How to Master the Year
As we kick off 2023, we want to share how we set our focus for the year ahead.
We all want to start our year off right, but how many of us know that a little distraction or deviation can quickly derail everything? That’s why we want to prepare you with focus.
The power of focus will eliminate confusion and help you meet your goals. As the saying goes, “You become what you behold."
Join us as we launch the first episode of the New Year with a conversation about focus, and through sharing some of our personal stories, we hope you’ll leave equipped, empowered, and ready to take on 2023.

A Long Wait
This is what I’ve told people, what I told my best friend, my sister, brother in law, and anyone else: finally. I can remember scouring this platform 5+ years ago looking for a Bevere channel that regularly put out sermons/messages. I moved on BUT heard y’all were doing a podcast and got pretty pumped. I’m so glad you both are doing something! I’m not a husband or father yet, but I know what y’all talk about is for me.
Thank you SO much!
Worth your time!
Love the authenticity and practicality that John and Lisa bring every time! This podcast has truly changed my life and walk with God.
