#014: God’s Heart for the World (Part 1 of 2) [PODCAST]

For this session, you will be listening to the first part of the talk that I gave at Metro Church of God in Dallas, TX. It was an evening devoted to missions. I was privileged to give the main talk.

The topic for this evening meeting was, “God’s Heart for the World”. I used Romans 10:13-15 as the main text.

This is a topic that is very important to me. I love challenging young adults by asking them to take a dive into the mission of God around them, whether locally or globally.

You can make a difference. Listen below.

    • We must demonstrate AND declare the Gospel to people around us
