LEADERSHIP UNIVERSITY (CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP MINISTRIES)
To be detailed soon.
THE LIBERATED WAILING WALL
In the early 1970s, a group of Jews for Jesus began singing on street corners in and around San Francisco. They didn't win world-wide acclaim, but some people did stop and listen, people who were surprised to hear Jewish melodies with lyrics about Jesus. At the same time, the group brought a little bit of Jewishness to the church as they were invited here and there by Christians to share their unique music. This group of singing street missionaries was the original Liberated Wailing Wall. Available is a brief history of this now well-known group, sound clips from their music, and their itenary.

One of the distinct priviledges in providing our Christian guides has been meeting people who put their mind, heart and soul into ministry. Lifetime Ministries is thoroughly based on these principles, and we highly recommend excursions to their web site on a regular basis! The ministry centers around an excellent Christian talk radio program. Visitors wishing to listen to the webcasts will need a 486 PC or Mac Power PC. Lifetime provides a link to download RealAudio software. The web site provides a very well presented monthly web calander from which users can download sound files of the series we may be interested in. Each Monday, Steve Gregg from the Great Commission School hosts Bible Answers. Lifetime Ministries founders, Ron and Barbara Reed, host Open Line on Thursday., and on Wednesday, Matt Slick from the Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry hosts Church Doctrine. Dr. H. Wayne House from the Michigan Theological Seminary hosts Church History on Thursday. Ron closes the week with Authors and Books commentary. At the time of our survey we also find a three-part debate between Steve and Matt on Calvinism vs. Arminianism, that should keep us all glued to your chairs, if not calling for the lions! In addition to the radio program Lifetime is an intercessory ministry and visitors are welcomed to write using the Intercessor prayer address from the main web page. Lifetime Ministries is underpinned by a caring approach to people. Very highly recommended.
