What Does a Generous Church Look Like?

Give me your heart

The founder of Rhemedia, Jack Alexander, shared a point with me once that I've never forgotten.  Every church, he said, has a church membership class, and church membership classes often help congregants find ways in which they can serve the church.  That's a perfectly fine thing.  Churches are important and serving the church is good.  But churches ought to have "kingdom citizen" classes too.  When you become a follower of Jesus Christ, the reality into which you are inaugurated is much … [Read more...]

Keeping Up with Rhemedia

LivGen Banner

Rhemedia was founded by people who believe in the power of film to convey life-changing truth.  To date, Rhemedia has developed 22 films, some of which can be found at www.rhemedia.com.  When we gave away the film called "Bullseye" in the month of March (since it's an Easter parable), it spread swiftly all over the globe.

Do You Ever Feel Like God is Hiding From You?

Do you ever feel like God's ignoring your prayers? In Proverbs 25:2 it's written, "It is the glory of God to conceal things, but the glory of kings is to search things out.” It’s easy to feel as though our prayers are unanswered and God’s truths are unrevealed. Sometimes we have to search, and it feels as though God is hiding himself from us — hiding his truth, hiding his love, hiding his will for us. The Bible tells us it is the glory of God to conceal a matter, and the glory of … [Read more...]

Giving Their Lives for Christ in Nigeria

Rhemedia has a more general purpose, to utilize the most powerful storytelling medium of our time to convey the most important truths of all time.  But there's no question that there's a consistent thrust to the films we've created so far -- a thrust toward more radical discipleship, a thrust toward self-abandonment in giving ourselves for the kingdom. From time to time, in this blog space, we want to share the stories of people who are giving themselves in extraordinary ways for the gospel. … [Read more...]
