What Makes the Good Samaritan “Good”? | Pastor Rachel Billups

What Makes the Good Samaritan "Good"? Pastor Rachel Billups Big Serve Day at Ginghamsburg was awesome! Here are a few of my favorite photos from the day, and a recap of the commissioning message before scattering to serve. The world has mega problems Wars we didn’t start, fighting in our own communities, division within our inner-most circles, pandemics, earthquakes, storms, wild fires - just to name a few.

Why Work? | Pastor Mike Slaughter

Why Work? Mike Slaughter We spend 90,000 hours of our life at work. My first job was being a caddy at Clover Note Country Club in Cincinnati. After that, I cut grass for $2.50 a yard.

You are Gifted to Serve | Pastor Mike Fitzpatrick

You are Gifted to Serve What is the greatest gift you ever received? The greatest gift I ever received I got for my 50th birthday. My entire life, I have wanted to go to Ireland. Maybe it’s because I have a name like Michael Colin Fitzpatrick, but I’ve always been drawn to the Emerald Isle. So, my wife was having a conversation with her family about my upcoming birthday, and she got the idea, “Why don’t I take him to Ireland?” AND So, she did! Not only did the experience live up to my
