Crisis in the Church Series #4 – A Crisis of Leadership

National mourning erupted when Israel’s first king, Saul son of Kish and his son Jonathan, were slain in battle against the Philistines.

Crisis in the Church Series #5 – Revival, God’s Work or Man’s

It does not take great discernment to comprehend that America in general, and the church specifically, has fallen to its lowest spiritual condition in history.
