wayocross

wayocross has been a part of several ministries that involved men. He's aware of the many pit falls that men face including himself. He was born with a cleft palate and a speech impediment and as a result empathizes with men who have lost their way. He also recognizes that men being "self-sufficient" are often the last to know that they weren't. As a former leader in four churches and children's Sunday School teacher and children's tutor he sees the tragic future many youth face based on their own bad decisions learned from their parents (loosely interpreted). He believes scripture can be applied to most of the "hurts, habits, hang-ups, and addictions* that men face. * terminology borrowed from Celebrate Recovery ministry founded by John Baker at Saddleback Church in California.

Teaching Christianity

I agree that Christianity has played a central role in the history of the United States – because it most certainly has. And it should be taught in our schools and colleges.

Raised with Jesus

Jesus describes how the Comforter/Holy Spirit, God, and Jesus Himself are in constant communication with each other. But the real question is if we’re tuned in to this conversation. Often we’re like the car radio on a long trip and each station we tune in grows fainter as we distant ourselves from the radio tower.

Thinking of Discipleship

Notice that we are baptized into His death. Jesus did not need to recover from His past; but we do. Also notice that we’re not left there. But we are raised to a new life. But we are also called to complete His mission (the salvation of lost souls).

Our Legacy

A Missionary from Africa comes to the United States and shares with a concerned Christian how he feels the church in America is being deceived and in great danger. The Christian is very convicted by what he hears, makes a significant change in his life, and then sets forth a plan to reach his city with the gospel.
