You were created to be a conduit of God's resources, not a collector, and the next generation is watching. The more you invest in the things that matter to God, the more your heart will be changed toward those around you and towards God, and in the, you will become rich!

New Life's Lead Pastor Chad Pickering and his wife Shauna journeyed to Poland and into Ukraine to deliver desperately needed Trauma Kits and resources. Heartbreaking stories were heard as they spent time with and served refugees, as well as Territorial Defense members inside of Ukraine. Today they share this firsthand account of what is happening on the ground, what was done and thoughts on where we go from here.
With great discovery comes great responsibility, but our tendency is to keep it all to ourselves. This must change for the sake of others and the next generation!
One of the reasons people have rejected Christianity is because they don't even understand it, and the reason they don't understand it is because Christians have made it complicated.

Jesus invites us to something much bigger than just “believe”. Rather, when we choose to follow Him, he wants to turn us into something we’re not…something awesome!
