Following Jesus is like running a race. But it's a marathon, not a sprint. While we prefer to live in the "right now," God is not after quick fixes. His ways and his timetable are better. He wants to make us like Christ, and that takes a lifetime. So how do we run the race with endurance?
Endure is a podcast that is aimed at encouraging and equipping you to run your race of faith well over the long run. Join us to see how trusting in God and His grace - while pursuing Him one step at a time - will bring about your growth and His glory.
Marriage and Ministry with Roland and Tammy Martinez
Being a good spouse and a good parent is hard. Being a good spouse and parent while also in ministry is stress to the max. Doing all of that during COVID and an election is almost unfathomable.
This week we're talking about how to managed all of that with Roland and Tammy Martinez. They have dedicated themselves to teaching and discipling others. Initially serving in Christian education and pastoral ministry together in Miami and Ft. Myers, Florida. Eventually moving to Charlotte, Roland served as a full-time pastor where he and Tammy counseled couples and helped them to build God-honoring faith relationships. After pioneering the ministry of Christian Family Life in Caribbean and Latin American countries, Roland became the president of Christian Family Life in 2013. Roland and Tammy are frequently asked to teach church leadership the faith principles and share their application in seminars with couples. They have six children ranging in age from elementary school to college graduates and are active parents, residing in Charlotte, NC.

It seems like the contentious nature of our day is stressing relationships to the point where friendships are being broken up and bridges are being burnt. This week, we look at the Christian response when people are hurt and sinned against. We're looking at forgiveness.
This is a sermon that Daniel preached this past Sunday at Denver Baptist Church from Ephesians 4:32.
Have a great week and be kind!

The Ritchies sound like a lovely family you might end up talking to in the parking lot long after a church gathering. Ive sat under Daniel’s preaching multiple times and listened to the podcast for a while. I’m glad to see they are committed to putting out fresh content regularly and keeping it focused on topics edifying to Christians.
He is amazing
This podcast is practical and encouraging. Daniel and Heather bring a refreshing and real take to following Jesus in the middle of life and ministry. As a Christian and pastor, I can’t recommend this podcast highly enough!!
