While promoting the release of his latest DVD for the film "God's Club," well-known Baldwin brother Stephen revealed that he is connecting with a church in New York City to start a Bible study that will help young people who are lost, depressed or confused.
"I just found in my heart that what young people are seeking more than ever is to be challenged with an authentic encounter and experience with truth. That's what I believe young people are looking for," Baldwin told The Christian Post.
The actor maintained that he's gearing up to host the Bible study because after visiting many churches that focus on youth in the city, he felt there was still something missing. Baldwin contends that as much as young, hip churches are "blessing" the younger generation with music and a practical kind of Bible teaching, that really only goes so far. more >>
Sharing an excerpt from his latest book, Pastor Perry Noble reflects on the most important lessons in leadership he learned from his late mother, whom he said coped with a diagnosis of an advanced stage of cancer by not blaming God, but glorifying God's goodness.
