Ravi’s recap of Refresh (look who made it in the video!)

Hey TD!

Many students responded in faith and commitment at Refresh ’18, including some of our own TD’ers. Ravi’s message at Refresh ’18 brought conviction and perspective to all of us present. Even though it’s not the same as being there, you can still watch the videos above and glean from one of God’s choice servants. In our day and age, where the private life has not only gone so public, but has gone so wrong, this is a timely message calling for integrity and transparency before God. Please watch, pray, and obey. God bless you. – Arthur

Greetings from Refresh ’18!

It was a powerful evening with Ravi last night. Hearts were convicted, tears flowed (as maybe you can tell), consciences were seared, and lives were surrendered to our  gracious Lord. In today’s vlog, Michelle and Anabell share a short recap!

Greetings from Atlanta!

We’re here at RZIM’s Refresh Conference and have had a powerful first day of going under the hood of understanding and sharing the gospel we thought we knew so well. It’s been a challenging and refreshing (yes, it has!) first day.

We have a treat for you today – author and speaker, Dr. Vince Vitale, speaks to you TD’ers about the importance of grounding your faith in Christ before heading to college! Even in this short clip, you can see the heart and power of God. You’ll also see some TD’ers in the background playing Jenga (and, yes, it crashes down!).

“The answer to any question is something true and all truth is grounded in God.”

– Vince Vitale, Refresh ’18

Arthur at the EAP – “Christianity is so exclusivistic … believe in it or go to hell. That’s not right nor fair”

Hey TD!

I just got back from spending an amazing week in Atlanta with Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM) as a participant in their Emerging Apologists Program (EAP).  What a phenomenal time it was of nurturing my heart, soul, mind, and strength in the Lord and in my ministry in this world. I hope to pass on to you things I’ve learned in the future.

Part of our program was to address a pressing argument against the Christian faith, as well as to participate in an open forum-style Q&A session. The issue I addressed was “Christianity is so exclusivistic. You either believe in Christianity or go to hell. That’s neither right nor fair.” I thought you might be interested in my answer, in case you come across the same question yourself

Passion Week Podcasts: Good Friday – “The Cross: An Excruciating Glory”

Hey TD!

Well, today marks our final Passion Week podcast.  It’s the one Daniel saved for the culmination of this series.  It’s a life-altering piece of teaching that should leave you in a good and healthy place.

We pray that you will really take this weekend to give your ALL to the Lord – all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength – in heart-rending surrender and worship.

Perhaps you can take protracted times of Bible study, prayer, singing, learning, podcast listening :), and serving Him.  Whatever it takes to get your soul set on Him, do it … and enjoy! – Arthur

Passion Week Podcasts: Day 4 – “The Cross: A Father’s Love”

Hey TD!

Today’s podcast is personal as I share some of my testimony of how I came to Christ … through the love of my late father.  It’s the love of a father that we will focus on today, specifically, the love the Heavenly Father has for His Son.  Today’s teaching may shock you a bit, but the truth of it needs to be heard and known, for it puts everyone in their rightful place.

As usual, after listening, I encourage you to spend time in heartfelt prayer to the Lord, surrendering your life to the One who surrendered His Son for you. – Arthur

Passion Week Podcasts: Day 3 – “The Meaning of the Atonement”

(“The Meaning of the Atonement” – mp3)

Hey TD!

I can’t think of a better thing to do during Passion Week than to focus on the cross and learn about what really happened there.  If Jesus went to the cross, endured that for us, and secured for us what we could not secure on our own, the very least we can do is to spend time and effort to learn and appreciate what He’s done for us.  That’s what these 10 minute podcasts are designed to help you do.

In today’s podcast, “The Meaning of the Atonement,” we’ll go “under the hood” and explain the transactions that took place on the cross – propitiation, expiation, and reconciliation.  After listening, please spend time in prayer and thanksgiving for the specific crimes he propitiated, expiated, and reconciled you from. – Arthur
