Can sin disqualify us from ministry? How do we deal with people in leadership when they have a big moral failure?

With all four regulars back, they dive into this intense subject and tackle these difficult questions. They also get really specific and share exactly the kind of words you should use when presenting the Gospel outside of the church.

Oh and...David shares some beauty tips that will change your life!

A Vision of Biblical Proportions

And Moses called Bezalel and Oholiab and every craftsman in whose mind the Lord had put skill, everyone whose heart stirred him up to come to do the work. And they received from Moses all the contribution that the people of Israel had brought for doing the work on the sanctuary. They still kept bringing him freewill offerings every morning, so that all the craftsmen who were doing every sort of task on the sanctuary came, each from the task that he was doing, and said to Moses, “The people bring much more than enough for doing the work that the Lord has commanded us to do.” So Moses gave command, and word was proclaimed throughout the camp, “Let no man or woman do anything more for the contribution for the sanctuary.” So the people were restrained from bringing, for the material they had was sufficient to do all the work, and more. - Exodus 36:2-7

What is it about men in tights throwing a ball that can cause people to weep, climb poles, or burn down a city? Is devotion to sports an unchallenged idol in Christian culture?

While David, Chad and Ben discuss these questions Luke is apparently still being dragged around Poland by a pony.

The Instant reaction podcast is back!! After being away on tour for a couple of weeks, most of the regulars (except Luke) are back and rowdy as usual.

Wasting no time, the guys dive right back into controversial waters and discuss whether a small Christian University located in St Paul, Minnesota should be hosting Snoop Dogg as part of Super Bowl celebrations. Can this be justified as a business decision or a way to influence the “scene?” Not surprisingly, the guys have an opinion, and it’s not as straightforward as you might expect.

Episode 78: Don’t Tell Me What To Do!

Does the idea of submitting to leadership scare you? Do we really need leaders over our lives? This fear of submission is very common, especially in today’s culture that worships independence and being a strong individual. While these ideals are not inherently wrong they can sometimes keep us from truly being released in our calling. The guys look at this struggle and share their opinions on the matter in this final episode of the series “Millennials in Missions”

Episode 77: I Don’t Dig Wells!

When you think of the title missionary, do you think of khaki shorts and digging wells? Or construction projects, boring presentations during church services, and never-ending requests for funds? This false perception of what it means to be a missionary will so often keep people, specifically millennials, from ever going into the mission field. The regulars (including Chad, who finally arrived in Germany) look deeper at this barrier, share their experience (including a hilarious rant from David) and give some practical tips for those feeling called to missions.

Episode 76: I Don’t Do Paperwork!

In continuing with our series, the guys look at another obstacle that Millennials can face when wanting to go into missions, “The Myth of Instant Specialization.” The world tells us to only contribute in a way that perfectly aligns with our skills, dreams, or passions. This mentality is a major roadblock to radically serving God. The regulars discuss the importance of having a servant heart and a willingness to “pay your dues” and how this ultimately leads to real contentment and joy.

In this series, you’ll get to travel to the past, when the regulars were all together at the Steiger International Center back in October 2017. They discuss some of the unique roadblocks that Millennials face in trying to live a life of radical obedience, and how they seem to experience a particular difficulty in entering the mission field. In this first episode they talk about the fear of commitment, and how many times Millennials want to go from experience to experience without actually fully giving themselves to anything.

Brian "Head" Welch joins the guys on the podcast once again. They discuss all that God has been doing through Brian after the Korn shows, how Steiger has been able to partner with him in ministry, and the time he pranked Luke right before a seminar in Poland. Unfortunately, there is no random story from David, but this episode is full of laughter, good times, and inspiring stories of God's power!

Is social media ripping apart society? According to former Facebook exec Chamath Palihapitiya, it is. The guys look deeper at the subject of social media and the negative and positive affects it's having on our culture. While all of that might sound like a serious discussion, there is plenty of rants and banter that you will not want to miss, including another random story by David that involves him getting confused for a woman… again.
