Helping Hands with Shawn Morrison and Shawn Jones
Jesus said the poor will be with us always, and throughout Scripture we are encouraged to help those in need. They lack resources … spiritually, educationally, occupationally, security, and food. In this Crossroads Chapel Podcast episode, Shawn Morrison, Executive Director of Good in the ‘Hood, and Shawn Jones, President of the Crossroads Chapel, share how their Ministries help those in need by offering resources, food, and even shoes. We might not be able to eliminate poverty but we are called to help the suffering of those we can.
Addiction & Recovery with Terry Francis
Let me introduce you to a ministry that has been sharing the Gospel at the Minnesota State Fair for more than sixty years. The Crossroads Chapel, also known as Chapel at the Fair, is a welcoming place where millions of fairgoers enjoy live performances by Christian musicians, and buy fine religious-inspired books and merchandise at the Bookstore and Gift Shop. Besides worship services and entertainment, the Chapel at the Fair offers drop-in prayer and free Bibles. The Prayer Station ministers to the prayer needs of anybody who asks for prayer, and they are offered love, hope, peace, and a Word of Life from the Lord God Almighty. The leadership of the Crossroads Chapel is permanently extending the twelve days they usually spend at the Fair to do ministry all year around. One of those extended ministry options is a podcast, and that is what we would like to share with you. This Crossroads Chapel Podcast features Terry Francis from the Minnesota Adult and Teen Challenge, and he shares the misery of addiction and the hope of recovery in Jesus Christ.
Living Out the Mission
Do we know our mission? At times we do; we get trained in classes, we get indoctrinated with ideas of prophecy and doctrine. We attend conferences that give us the latest innovation within church culture. However, are we engaging the culture to salvage the culturally wounded, or are we pushing back against the ideas that enslave people to ignore God and the love He has for them? In this episode, Larry introduces you to a mission-minded group of people who understand the mission of the church and they tell how they are living out that mission.
