A MONTH IN RENO

Starting Sunday, April 3, all three of our local teams are taking over an entire city for four weeks. Reno, Nevada, most notably known for its casinos and divorces, seems to be the most unlikely place for revival to happen, but it can happen. God has been moving in mighty ways out West, especially in Reno. Churches all across the city have crossed denomination and ethnic borders to worship the One True God.

Teams will be hosting 4-day THIRST Conferences at each of the churches for three weeks, ultimately impacting nine churches in Reno. For the final week of April, all of the churches and community will be gathering together to worship and hear teaching.

Please be praying for the churches involved and consider joining us in seeking God to revive Reno, Nevada.

Join us at OneCryRENO.

April 24-26
3 NIGHTS at Lawlor events center 
Begins at 6:30pm

Courageous and Joyful in Difficulty

Courageous and Joyful in Difficulty

All of us face some measure of suffering in this life. It could be a physical challenge, a hard ministry task, an overwhelming and perplexing difficulty, a persecution for our faith, a deep burden, or simply the rigors of living a life of determined godliness. For some, this suffering is more intense. Paul was one of those who faced grave suffering in order to complete the task of the gospel that was entrusted to him. Yet, he was able to face it with courage and even joy. How?
Say Yes to Being an Encourager

Say Yes to Being an Encourager

There is one thing that every believer needs—encouragement from other believers. You need it too. You need to give it, and you need to receive it. But how, and when?
Are We Just Converts?

Are We Just Converts?

The greatest spiritual movement in history … is now. Yet sadly, for those of us in America, we have to get on an airplane to see it firsthand. As evidence? What if I told you that Iran, one of the most spiritually oppressed places on earth right now, is in the midst of a massive underground revival? It may be the greatest Jesus Movement of our day!
Spiritual Self-Awareness

Spiritual Self-Awareness

Do you have what it takes? Do you worry about your inadequacy? Do you have an accurate assessment of your life? Have you found the secret of having confidence in any situation? Many people (perhaps most) are clueless about who they really are. One of the great secrets...

Are You Ready to Say Yes to God?

Saying yes to God is a daily and even moment-by-moment positioning of the heart. It means calling your thoughts back to truth when they stray toward fear, unbelief, or selfishness. It means reminding yourself that God is in control and that His way is always right and always best. And sometimes it means intentionally setting aside time to cease all activity—to quiet your heart so you can hear Him.

Understanding the Mind of God

One of my mentors, Manley Beasley, once said to me that 1 Corinthians 2 is one of the most important passages in the Bible because it helps us see how to know the mind of God. It has become one of the most precious passages to me in all the Bible. Look at this vital...

Our Posture in Difficult Seasons

Our Posture in Difficult Seasons

As we live in this fallen world, we encounter all kinds of sinfulness and its effects, both within and without. If we are not mindful, we lose hope as we suffer difficulties and trials. If we lose hope, we quit praying, thinking there is no use. And if we stop...

The Anatomy of Dissension

The Anatomy of Dissension

I have dealt with dissenters in the church for a good portion of my ministry, particularly during the first thirty years. Gratefully, since founding The Summit Church twenty-one years ago, I have not dealt with any of this in our church (so I now know it’s possible!),...

Saying Yes to Family-Style Faith

Though we may be tempted to treat our Christian faith like visiting a cafeteria—where we can believe what we want and leave the rest—it is more like joining a family. We have been adopted. God is our Father, and Christ is our brother. This is a family like no other. Love never fades. The family circle constantly grows as siblings are added each day from every part of the earth.
God’s Opinion or Man’s?

God’s Opinion or Man’s?

Every day, we make manifold decisions based on what we believe to be true. We must decide what voice we think offers the greatest reality: God’s Word or man’s? A Weather Prediction Paul was a prisoner of the Roman army and was headed for Rome. On the way, God...
