He describes twelve key initiatives that result in the fundamental change of society. Three CD set or MP3 download.
  • What does it mean to receive a calling from God? How does one recognize a calling? Are all callings to full time ministry?

  • The Bible encourages us to consider Elijah’s faith in order that we may become like him and prevail in prayer (Jas. 5:16-18). In this message, Ken explores the key aspects of Elijah’s prayer for rain in order that we can similarly find breakthrough answers to our own prayers.

  • Join Ken as he examines “awakening” as the mingling of renewal of faith among the people of God, revival in which many “outsiders” come to the Lord, and reformation of the mores and customs in our civilization. Such awakenings occur when we become singularly focused on the work to which he has called us in our time, as the scriptures declare, “…the Lord is with you, when you are with him.” Moreover, as he fulfills his word to the people of Israel, to the church and to the land, “…for they shall all know me, from the least of them to the greatest, declares the Lord.”

  • Following the healing at the Beautiful Gate, Peter offered the Jewish people “times of refreshing” through repentance, returning to the Lord, and having their sins wiped away.

Join Ken as he explores how following Peter’s plan of refreshing will hasten the return of Christ.
  • In this message, Ken discusses the greatest threat to true Christianity today: the mingling of Christianity with other religious practices (syncretism).

  • Christmas is often thought of as a time of storybook pictures and family gatherings; however, the original Christmas was a time of great risk.

(CD not yet available in Australia.)
  • In his first recorded sermon, found in Luke 4:18-19, Jesus preached from Isaiah 61:1-2.
