    Doing Life Together

    Doing Life Together

    The phrase "doing life together" has been overused and has lost some of its meaning despite it being so important in the life of the New Testament church. The key to doing life together is getting down and just doing it. What then does it mean? What it's is not is just three meetings a week then off into our own world again.
    We see in Acts 2:42-47 the record by Luke of the pattern that the apostles used to build the unity of the church community. They were characterised by devotion to one another, the apostles teaching, prayer, breaking of bread, sharing, fellowship and much more. All of this was rooted in sincere and deep relationships. They lived in each others lives. In today's corporate speak we talk about not operating in silos but engaging with one another. It is imperative that we do the same in the body of believers by going deeper than this and building sincere and devoted relationships. Dylan, Ross and Wayne take a look at doing life from personal experience with a little humour and reflect on what we are doing right and where we need to grow.

    The Suffering Church in Zimbabwe

    The Suffering Church in Zimbabwe

    The atmosphere went from joyful to subdued and then to tears as we heard the story of the suffering church in Zimbabwe in this podcast interview with Neville Sandama. He is the lead elder in Josh Gen Harare and shares stories on this podcast, while in tears, of the hardship and suffering of believers from a pastors heart perspective. Yet, in the midst of the economic hardships of hunger amongst church members he gives testimony of God moving and people coming to Christ in numbers. Despite hunger and hardship they are content and consider themselves worthy to be suffering for the Gospel.
    All three of us were in tears as our hearts were touched by the accounts of men and women of God who preach the Gospel and pastor the congregation in Josh Gen Harare under dire circumstances.

    Apologetics - Defence of Belief in God

    Apologetics - Defence of Belief in God

    In this edition we look at three important aspects of apologetics, first cause, design and fine tuning. Something must have caused the universe to come into being, there is someone who designed the universe and the fine tuning of the universe is so precise it couldn't have happened by itself. In this podcast Adam Hellyer helps us understand how to apply these principles using apologetics and how to effectively defend the faith.

    Hearing Gods Voice

    Hearing Gods Voice

    The greatest desire we have or should have is to hear God's voice. Hear what His plans and purposes are for our lives. How do we hear God's voice? When should be listening? Where should we be listening? We look at these and other questions around God's desire to speak to us in intimate fellowship. Jeff Kidwell and Ross Lahana chat with Wayne about personal experiences and principles they've learned in their walks with God and how they have learned to hear His voice. If we are going to move forward with Him we have to hear His voice in our facets of our lives.

    Sacrificial Leadership

    Sacrificial Leadership

    In a world beset by issues of independence and hedonism we are often influenced by standards that do not reflect true kingdom values of sacrifice and dying to the self. We look at leadership that places a high value on obedience to God's call and serving where He finds the greatest need. Crucial to leadership is submission to God's authority and finding the centre of His will.
    Ross Lahana and Ross Gillespie share their journeys of sacrificial leadership and how they uprooted families and moved cities and suburbs in response to God's call in submission to the direction godly leaders. Their challenges and examples are testimonies of submission to God, His authority, plans and purposes. The remarkable truth and challenge to us is that this doesn't just apply to leaders and full time workers but also to each one of us saints in the local church.
