Does God work the same all over the world? Will people respond to the Gospel in the USA the same way they do in Russia?

Ben and David talk about this reaction they seem to see all over the world where people think that preaching the Gospel works in other countries but won’t work in their own. They debunk this lie and look at why it seems that so many followers of Jesus around the world have turned away from just preaching the simple Gospel.

Are we raising our kids to believe something that is just a set of good habits and morals or are we showing them what it truly means to have a relationship with God?
David shares his experience in raising two kids as a missionary and some of the important steps he took so that they would see what it really means to follow Jesus. 

In this bonus episode of the Provoke&Inspire podcast Ben and David answer questions sent in from our community. They look at what makes overseas missions unique and why it’s important, discuss the use of vulgar language and the importance of having a healthy revelation of hell.

In this episode of the podcast, Luke returns and joins David and Ben as they dig into the topic of relevance.

Due to high demand the guys take another look at the idea of how should followers of Jesus should respond to divisive issues in culture today.

They ask, how can a Christian be equipped to engage and challenge secular culture without losing their heart for people and focus on the Cross?

In this unplanned episode of the podcast David and Ben discuss Taylor Swift’s new single “You Should Calm Down” and its scathing attack on the abuse of LGBT community at hands of Christians.

The guys wrestle with how followers of Jesus can meaningfully engage with a culture that views us as bigots, intolerant, and homophobic. They ask, in what ways is Taylor Swift right, and how can we do a better job of proactively demonstrating the love and character of God to an increasingly hostile world.

In this episode, David shares about his day as a wedding singer in southeastern Turkey.

The guys then move on the critical subject of relevance. They ask whether we have become foreigners in our cities and how we can become relevant in sharing the Gospel in secular culture. They talk about the need to develop authentic relationships with nonbelievers to learn how to communicate the Gospel effectively outside of the church.

This discussion is vital to any Christian wanting to use their lives to reach people for Jesus!

While in Hawaii for a Provoke&Inspire conference, Austin Carlile (Of Mice and Men/Attack! Attack!) joins Ben, David and Chad in person to share his story, the loss he’s experienced in his life, how he found Jesus in the midst of everything and what God is doing in and through his life now!

In the latest Provoke and Inspire podcast episode, David and Ben talk about a difficult No Longer Music show in Estonia.

They discuss how easy it is to see things through human eyes and how often we say we want to serve God but want to be comfortable.

They ask the critical question does a significant life require challenge, and is it possible to make a difference without facing hardships?

The latest podcast episode features Ben and David while on the road with No Longer Music. Huddled together in a sweaty Lithuanian lodge, the boys discuss the incredible things God is doing every night.

Ben raises the critical question of why is it that we tend to live like an atheist despite believing in God? They share personal struggles in this area and share how they have learned to pray bold, faith-filled prayers amid adversity.

This is a critical conversation for any follower of Jesus. Check it out!
