We are so privileged as a ministry to be in close partnership with some of the best minds and warriors in the country fighting for faith, family and freedom. Most importantly, they are engaged in the culture from a Christ-centered perspective. Grace, joy and compassion drive us to bring Truth into the public square.

I'm honored to pass along some timely and encouraging words from our friends and allies in Minnesota for "such a time as this."
Does this sound familiar ?
The Bible teaches clearly that there is nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9).
Sadly, civil governments and cultures have been celebrating and declaring "right" what God clearly declared wrong for centuries. Granted, this is somewhat new to America, but you may recall another big moment in our history when our government celebrated sin and even made it a constitutional "right."
The year was 1973, and the Supreme Court declared abortion a constitutional "right" in the infamous Roe v. Wade case. The Body of Christ in America rightly mourned.
But then, believers in America got to work. They refused to abandon God's Word and change their views on abortion simply because the Supreme Court invented a new constitutional "right" to murder unborn babies.
And then the Gospel changed hearts and lives, as it always does.
In the mid-1990's, Reverend Flip Benham, the father of our friends the Benham Brothers, baptized Norma McCorvey (the woman who was Jane Roe from the Roe v. Wade case). Reverend Benham built a friendship with Norma after he located his pro-life ministry next to the abortion clinic where Norma worked.
After an extremely difficult childhood, being raped as a teenager, agreeing to be the anonymous plaintiff in the infamous Roe case (though she never aborted her child), and living as a lesbian for years, Norma gave her life to Christ and became an outspoken prolife advocate.
And now today, Millennials are the most prolife generation, with abortion numbers increasingly dropping, and the number of Millennials who think abortion is "morally wrong" well above 50%. Read more!
You see, the Supreme Court didn't get the final word on abortion. Nor will it get the final word on marriage. God's design for marriage is intended to portray a beautiful picture of Christ's relationship with His Church, and the Supreme Court certainly has no authority over that!
So, get ready, we have lots of work to do! Will you joyfully say "Yes, Lord, here am I" with us?
Here in Alaska, we have a tremendous amount of work and opportunities ahead of us. We'll keep you posted as that unfolds. As always, your prayers and financial support are needed and appreciated.
