Productive Ministry

Summary: Productive Ministry was founded to help pastors, priests, and ministers accomplish more administratively, in order increase the amount of time they have for functioning pastorally. We help them do the things they have to do so they can go do the things they're called to do.

Instead of a sponsor this week, we're encouraging people to donate and volunteer to hurricane Harvey relief. If you are looking for somewhere to donate, visit productiveministry.org/harveyFrom its preamble: "The Nashville statement is a document put out by Evangelical Church leaders and The Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood (CBMW). The statement is a response to an increasingly post-Christian society that has embarked upon a massive revision of what it means to be a human being." The statement consists of 14 articles that each affirm and deny a belief. They cover a range of topics from a prohibition on sex outside of marriage to the connection between biological sex and gender identity.Because of the significance of its signatories and purpose, Productive Ministry wanted to have conversation about The Nashville Statement. This episode is a conversation between Rocky and Dr. Joe Paris. Joe Paris is a Campus and Teaching Pastor in North Texas. He has a D. Min in Apologetics and is a member of the Evangelical Philosophical Society.---Show notes available at ProductiveMinistry.orgFollow Productive Ministry on Twitter: @ProdMinistryLike Productive Ministry on Facebook: FB.me/ProductiveMinistry.org

 22: Renewing Your Mind | File Type: audio/mp3 | Duration: 58:25

This interview focuses on Dennis Jernigan's new book, Renewing Your Mind: Identity and the Matter of Choice. Dennis addresses the following question: How does one walk out of one identity and into another? Dennis gets that question a lot.At one time, Dennis felt attracted to other men. When he began to replace the lies concerning himself with the truth of God’s Word, something close to miraculous began to take place: his feelings began to change! What Dennis has discovered is that the main battle of his life is the mental battle of discovering his true identity according to God’s Word. In the process of seeking God relationally, Dennis discovered the power of God’s Word to transform his mind. Two specific passages gave him strength to pursue God for a change in his thinking, and the end result is a brand new identity not defined by feelings, temptations, circumstances, other people or groups, or even himself. Dennis Jernigan is defined by his Maker.This episode is sponsored by Audible.
