Better late than never. Sorry folks with all the Tornado related stuff and shifting of our roles here at BCC we were late putting this out this week. But in that vain, Kevin Beavon from Love Monkey Ministries sits down with Stew and they talk, Love Monkey, Tornados, and Loving Your Neighbor. Thanks for joining us. Remember we are the Journey with You.
This week Jordan Curtis, all the way from Rwanda shares with us how the Bible begins to deal with history. We have been in our Summer School series for two weeks, each week we will grapple with a subject from school and how the Bible seems to address it. This week we have two additional stories, Brian and Joanie Pollock and Jan and Jerry McCluer tell us how the Tornados form Memorial Day affected them and how BCC rallied to help them.
Stew sits down with a group of students who have all been part of the student community and at some point were the point leaders for the students. Riley Gatlin, Maura Kesterson, Joel Baker and Jacob Beavon all join Stew to discuss what we mean by Missional Youth Ministry. You will see the empowerment, the intentionality, and the wrestling that these students have embodied as leaders and disciples.
Ted leads us in a unique Sunday. We had tables set out in the room instead of rows and there is several moments of interaction in his teaching. The kids were with us and because we are all on this journey together, we wanted to help them interact with the message as much as the adults. It was a great time of learning together. Ted really gives us great insight into God’s work in our everyday lives.
Dave Searl sits down with Stew and discusses what a missional eldership is all about. How it’s different from what we’ve known in the past and how our goal is not to do the ministry for people but with them. Everyone of us is a minister. Remember we are on the Journey with You.

Stew Sheckler kick’s off our May series about miracles by exploring the gods of Egypt and why the parting of the Red Sea was a direct attack on their dominion. He tries to show us that holding back the waters was all an object lesson to remind us that when we can’t imagine a way out, God reminds us that He can always provide that way out for us.
What do we mean when we say Missional? Is it really a word? Yes, it is. In this podcast Chris, Ed, and Stew talk about what missional means in practical terms and what it has to do with BCC. We are hoping you take a moment this week and ask God to show you how to to be the good news where you already live every day.
