Every year churches all across America forfeit Father's Day. What a great opportunity to target not just our Fathers but all men connected with our local body of Believers. In this yearly talk about not forfeiting Father's Day, I share some thoughts on how a church can target and engage the men of the church. It is a time that men would expect a church to do so - so why not do it. If your church has not been using this day as a day to engage your men, I pray this Father's Day you will and NOT FORFEIT FATHER'S DAY.

The past two years have been tough on people as the world dealt with the Coronavirus pandemic. Regardless of what you may think about how the world reacted to the virus, the pandemic has resulted in people experiencing anxiety and depression being at an all-time high. I know that I have seen an increase in my personal sphere of friends and relatives. This has probably triggered a number of other issues individuals may be dealing with and even bringing back suppressed pains they have not resolved. On this program, I have Rod West, the Founder and Director of Christ-Centered Solutions, with me, and we will be talking about issues people face every day and what can be done through Biblical Counseling.
