Get Real: Sharing Your Everyday Faith Every Day

Christians often make evangelism into an awkward experience. We host evangelism events and rehearse three-step plans, but we struggle to relate to non-Christians or to tell our own stories in an authentic way. Get Real calls us to live out what Christ modeled–a lifestyle of actively sharing the good news in our relationships. John Leonard–pastor, seminary professor, and former missionary–shows how Christ’s own example releases us to love, listen, pray fervently, and respond faithfully to opportunities everyday. When we get real, we are free to share our everyday faith with the people God places in our lives.



Explore the night sky, identify stars, constellations, and even planets. Stargaze with a telescope, binoculars, or even your naked eye. Allow Dr. Jason Lisle, a research scientist with a master's and PHD in astrophysics, to guide you in examining the beauty of God’s Creation.
