Randy Alcorn is the founder and director of Eternal Perspective Ministries (EPM), a nonprofit organization dedicated to teaching biblical truth and drawing attention to the needy and how to help them. Before starting EPM in 1990, Alcorn for 13 years co-pastored Good Shepherd Community Church outside Gresham, Oregon. He has ministered in many countries, including China, and is a popular teacher and conference speaker. Randy is a best-selling author of over 30 books including Heaven, The Treasure Principle, and the 2002 Gold Medallion winner, Safely Home.
Pastors of the underground Chinese Church have risked their livelihood by signing a statement in which they call out the government's persecution of Christian churches. These pastors declare they are willing to give up “all our earthly rights” for the love of their fellow citizens.
Andy Stanley unpacks his reasoning for eliminating phrases such as "the Bible says..." from our preaching in order to reach the younger generations and return to a more New-Testament model of evangelism.
