The Gospel Project Webcast

Hi everyone! Exciting day today! I want to invite everyone to view The Gospel Project Webcast today!


What is The Gospel Project?

The Gospel Project is a Christ-centered curriculum that examines the grand narrative of Scripture and how the gospel transforms the lives of those it touches. Over a three-year plan of study, each session immerses participants — adults, students, and kids — in the gospel through every story, theological concept, and call to missions from Genesis to Revelation.


Today, Trevin Wax, Managing Editor of The Gospel Project, will host as Advisory Council members Matt Chandler and J.D. Greear, and General Editor Ed Stetzer, talk about gospel-centeredness in the lives of Christians and the church, today.

I just had the opportunity to listen to Matt Chandler in Chapel today at LifeWay and WOW! He is an excellent speaker!

Forty years ago or so. . .

Hi everyone! I know, I know, it’s not Friday but I wanted to slip in a quick blog post today about one of my team members, Joyce Frazier!

Joyce just celebrated her 40th year at LifeWay! Forty years ago was 1971. . .do you remember 1971? Nope, I don’t . . . I was born in 1971! heh heh ! ! ! (actually, she started in 1968 but I don’t think they had invented counting back then :D . . .or she didn’t officially start until 1971).

When I was in the Youth group at my church, I went through a program called, DiscipleYouth I. Joyce is listed as one of the team members that worked on that program! :D I like to tease her occasionally about that! (so, she might be indirectly responsible on how I act!) Ah ha ha ! ! ! just kidding!

Worship KidStyle – What others have to say.

Most of you have VBS on the brain and are full steam ahead with planning, scheduling, and decorating. But after your church has had fun exploring the outback or digging for truth, it will be back to business as usual. Wouldn’t it be great to carry the same excitement of VBS in your kids’ ministry year round? Worship KidStyle does that! See what others are saying about Worship KidStyle and how they use it in their kids’ ministry!

Jeff’s Testimony take 2

We found a better video of Jeff Slaughter sharing his testimony about this year’s ABC song for Boomerang Express. He shared this story at each VBS Preview, and it made such an impact every time.
