We had just returned from our first adventure in New Zealand when we received a surprise invitation to visit the beautiful country of Colombia. Our first thought was, “don’t they kidnap people down there?”

Mark Mohr from the band Christafari joined us on the podcast! Mark shares his story, as well as some valuable lessons he has learned from over 25 years of using music to reach the lost.

How Hungry Are You?

Over the years, I’ve adopted various methods for coming into a deeper, more focused connection with God. I once quieted myself on a silent retreat for several days at a Catholic monastery in Bourbon County, Kentucky, where most of the Colombia [Esto Es Reino] script was handwritten. Since my college days twenty years ago, I’ve fasted from food on many (though far from all) Fridays. Back in those university days, a friend of mine and I worked at Pizza Hut on Friday nights. We’d push each other to refrain from eating until after the dinner rush - not out of obligation, but rather from a place of desperation to see God moving in our lives.

Episode 43: Why Am I Silent? I Gave Up

Whether it’s caused by the loss of our passion and focus over time; running on principle rather than intimacy with God; or simply not realizing the spiritual battle we are in, we can find ourselves giving up on our calling. In this final episode of “Why Am I Silent?”, we talk about why we often decide to give up, and how we can find the strength to persevere.
In this episode of “Why Am I Silent?”, we talk about fear, and how we can allow it to paralyze us, robbing us of our courage to proclaim the Gospel.
In a society where image is highly regarded, looking uncool can be a huge deterrent to preaching the Gospel. Our pride can cause us to remain silent if we don’t fully surrender it to Jesus. Check out this new episode of “Why Am I Silent?”, where we discuss this issue.

Do we value success over what God is calling us to do? This time on “Why Am I Silent?”, we take a look at how we can be unwilling to present the Gospel’s message clearly through our art, due to the inherent risk of forfeiting fame or commercial success.
Sometimes as artists/musicians, we may remain silent because not all the members of our group/band agree that we should share the Gospel through our art. What should you do if there’s division on this issue? We discuss this and more in this new episode of “Why Am I Silent?”.
Do I really need to preach the Gospel? Isn’t relational evangelism enough? In this episode of “Why Am I Silent?”, we talk about the mindset that preaching is unnecessary and that proclamation evangelism is outdated and ineffective in our culture.
