How much of how and why we think the way we do has been influenced by ancient ways of thinking. Jorin Green was a professor at Millar College of the Bible for 17 years and has returned to the pastorate at Erindale Alliance Church in Saskatoon Sk. We had a fun time and our conversation that went a lot of different ways and probably left us with more questions that answers. But I hope what you will discover in the pursuit of truth is the depth and beauty of a relationship with Jesus.

Part 2 of an episode with Pastor Dan Esau from Leader Saskatchewan about small town and small church ministry. For more info on the fellowship of Evangelical Bible Churches goto:
I would bet that the bulk of us attend/serve in small churches, and in smaller communities. Actually the bulk of the church globally are smaller congregations. The bulk of leadership material, church growth models, and programming don't seem to land as effectively with the small church. Small church ministry and small town ministry is both nuanced and necessary, and it takes a special pastor to do this work. Dan Esau is a pastor in Leader Sk.  and previously in a variety of pastoral roles in smaller churches and community's  and I'm sure what Dan has to share will resonate with you.

I count it a real blessing to have had the chance to sit down with this wonderful woman of God. Hers is a story of determined obedience and surrender to the Lordship of Christ. This is not a heady debate over Lordship salvation or free grace. It is about the fact that the two should not be separated. The cost and blessing of surrendering to Christ as Lord are weighty but to not count either is to miss Christ entirely. Jean Barsness has been a missionary and teacher (Briercrest and Millar College)  who has impacted the lives of many. Jean now lives in Saskatoon Sk. where she continues to serve her Savior Anywhere, Anytime and Any Cost. I would strongly encourage you to read Jeans book, a link to where you can get a copy is below. more information on the Fellowship of Evangelical Bible Churches goto:

This is part 2 of an episode with Arnie Armstrong tackling 5 big questions rooted in the introductory chapters of the Bible,  that we need to wrestle with and reconcile in order to make sure that we are believing the same God that Jesus believed in (The God of the Bible). In P2  we come to the last 2 questions that come post-fall. I trust that these questions are not just thought provoking but also helpful and practical for you as you wrestle through them.  For more information on Millar College of the Bible visit: http://www.millarcollege.caFor More information on the Fellowship of Evangelical Bible Churches visit:
When we go through the hardest moments of our lives we are faced with our biggest questions about God.  Questions that shape how we view Him and respond to him. In Part 1 of this discussion we will tackle the first 3 foundational questions. Each of these questions are established before the fall. Can you live with a God who says NO? Can God decide who lives and dies? Can you trust God if He keeps secrets from you?These are thought provoking questions with far more practical implications than you might think. Grab your Bible and dig in with Arnie and I for the next couple weeks. Arnie is a professor and academic dean at Millar College of the BibleFor more information on Millar College head over to:http://www.millarcollege.caThis Podcast is in partnership with the Fellowship of Evangelical Bible Churches
I know many of us don't often quote from this book, either in theological conversations or in romantic conversations with your wife..."you're hair is a like a flock of goats" may not resonate with her. But "The Song of Songs" or "The Song of Solomon" is in there for a reason. It is wonderfully poetic and rarely preached. Just how should we approach it and how should we handle it?Travis Johnston is a professor at Millar College of the Bible.
