Discover The Character of a Leader with Dr. John Townsend and Discover the Word

By Julianna Keck

Sept. 18, 2017

“Are leaders born … or are they made?” We are all leaders … in our families, with our friends, in our place of work, and in our churches. But that doesn’t necessarily mean effective leadership comes naturally. This week, from September 18–22, author and psychologist Dr. John Townsend will join the Discover the Word team to discuss The Character of a Leader. This series explores how crucial character is to building a strong leadership style. Throughout the study, Townsend and the Discover the Word Team provide four, tangible skills to help listeners lead well within their spheres of influence. Brian Hettinga sets the stage for compelling content in this video teaser: Our Daily Bread Ministries has designed a number of graphics to help promote The ... Read More

Philip De Courcy Imparts Words to Live by in His Interview with Barbara Follis

By Julianna Keck

Aug. 25, 2017

How does a reluctant teenager who recognizes his need to get saved—but loves his sin more— become a pastor willing to lay down his life to preach the Gospel? This past weekend on Words to Live By, Barbara Follis interviewed special guest, Pastor Philip De Courcy of Know The Truth. It’s always exciting when two or more of our ministry partners collaborate in their radio efforts, and this excellent interview is certainly no exception! As always, Barbara gets right to the heart of the matter, inviting Philip to share how a message from the Scriptures transformed his life and gave him words to live by. You’ll hear Philip narrate his personal story of redemption, recounting how growing up amidst religious violence in war-torn Northern Ireland ... Read More

Discover the Word Will Put Your Concept of Temptation on Trial

By Jessie Jolliff

Aug. 1, 2017

This week, Discover the Word hosts, Elisa Morgan, Bill Crowder and Mart DeHaan are bringing the biblical account of The Temptation of Jesus to the table for a fascinating examination of the 40 days He spent in the wilderness being tempted by Satan. Temptation is oft envisioned as something that sneaks up on Christians and catches us in a moment of weakness. The account found in Luke 4, however, is quite contrary to that assumption. Jesus was not surprised or tested in a moment of weakness. Rather, He was “led by the Spirit” into the wilderness to face the Enemy. Jesus, having just been baptized, was declared “full of the Holy Spirit” … and then was led into temptation in the desert. Coincidence? With the ... Read More
