Ambassadors for Christ deliver a message of reconciliation to all people. The message centers on what Christ has already done for us on the cross. It is a proclamation of victory!
The Lord commissions believers in Christ to sow the seeds of the gospel. By embracing this role, Christians find joy and peace by leaving the results to Him.
I downloaded a star chart on my tablet this week. It maps the stars and solar systems at the precise moment when they appear over my house. Like a seasoned stargazer familiar with the evening skies, the program points a finger at the constellations above that have been looked up across generations.

And in that moment, I am connected with them.
The purpose of Praise and Proclaim Ministries is to train Christians on how to share the gospel, so they may joyfully declare, “I can do this!”

An ongoing battle between the kingdom of God and the kingdom of Self is fought in the fields of our hearts.

That word is “Surrender!”
