A Note from Nancy...
Yes, Aslan is on the move...God is up to something! God, in the midst of the worst of times, will always have the last word. Be encouraged!
How could a country with millions of well qualified people that could lead America to be a nation, under God, with liberty and justice for all choose Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton?
When I look at our churches and our teens, I can see the erosion of faith and foundational moral principles. Christians lack the basic understanding of their God and faith, and courage to take a stand, the culture will win every time. We are at war for the hearts and minds of teens and their parents. If you need convincing, take a look at these stats from Barna, McDowell and Summit.
The Church is in trouble: Only 2% of self identified Christians know how to defend their faith. Less than half believe that Jesus was sinless, the Bible is true and choosing what is right depends on the situation. The average church size of 75 people, lead 1 person to Jesus per year.
Not surprising, teens are no better off than the parents. Only 2-6% of Christian teens live out their faith, the majority do not believe that Jesus is God. They believe that all faiths are the same, that Jesus did not raise from the dead and that the Holy Spirit does not exist. Fall out for this: up to 80-90% will walk away from their faith by the time they graduate from college with FEW returning.
THERE IS HOPE. To turn the tide, Christians have got to learn what and how to defend your faith in Jesus. We are here to help you become a champion culture changer. Please go on our site and order an "Unanswered: Smoke, Mirrors and God"bundle that you can receive in a few days.

Play the 5 minute video and get going. People with no biblical training are diving in and loving it! Click here and order today.
There are some awesome things going on:
How about showing The Chronicles of Narnia and watch it together with your family and maybe invite friends to join you? We suggest that after you watch the movie, you could discuss the areas in your lives where God is moving, where God needs to be more active and how to better live out your relationship with God. To watch, click here!
We will always be willing and ready to pray for and with you. We would love to help you with your situation and suggest ways to speak into your group that you would love to reach. Please let us know what we can do to help. Office: 317-844-0381

"...so that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes. Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love. (Ephesians 4:14-16)"
Blessings and much love!
