E3 Partners Ministry Vice President and Middle East expert Tom Doyle revealed on Friday that a partner who had been missing in Syria for eight weeks is alive and well, which is proof that God is moved when His followers pray and fast.
"The believers in Syria, when they heard about this, they just cried ... that believers cared enough about them to be praying every day. Boy! When we pray and fast, the Lord is so moved by that and Ahmed is just evidence of that!" Doyle said.
E3 Partners, formerly the EvangeCube and Global Missions Fellowship, is a missionary collective that is "committed to exceptional stewardship of God's people, opportunities, resources and knowledge to Equip God's people to Evangelize His world by Establishing His church." more >>
After completing the U.S. portion of a 2,400-mile relay from Atlanta to Guatemala City in Guatemala, a Christian-based global leadership development organization plans to hand over the baton to their Guatemalan partners at the Mexican border near Laredo, Texas, on Friday. The purpose of the approximately 120-day journey by foot (and bicycle in parts of Mexico and Central America) is to bring awareness about plans to activate Christians in leadership positions, first in Guatemala and then elsewhere around the world.
"It's a big initiative and we felt like we need to do something very bold that would be consistent and bring attention to such a worthy cause," John Hull, president and CEO of EQUIP Leadership, told The Christian Post by phone call from Laredo on Wednesday.
"The EQUIP World Relay is a journey that represents what leadership is all about – a journey full of extraordinary challenges, hard work, sacrifice and daily-mile markers that ultimately reach a goal that is bigger than oneself, a goal that could never be accomplished alone," he said. more >>
IRVINE, Calif. – More than 4,000 Christians interested in becoming better leaders packed out the Catalyst West conference held at Mariner's Church in Orange County beginning last Wednesday and ending Friday.
"We were praying that for every leader here this would be a bench mark for them or a marker on the road of leadership for them," Catalyst President Brad Lomenick told The Christian Post backstage at the event. He said that he hopes leaders would be able to look back at the conference and say that it was a significant turning point in their lives.
"We pray that with a fearless sense and an aggressive belief that it is going to happen for leaders individually," Lomenick said. "I feel like that it is happening [at Catalyst West]. The unity, the fun, and the energy are here. It's always here [at Catalyst conferences], but we feel like we dialed it up a bit." more >>

CARY, N.C. – The global media organization Trans World Radio (TWR) said that within less than two years they will be able to deliver Christian content to nearly 60 percent of the people in the world in their own language. The ministry plans to do this by integrating its broadcast capabilities through radio, Internet, and smart phone technology.
"If you can imagine a Web portal with hundreds of ministries coming to one location to have their Christian content (audio, text, or video) available," Ralf Stores, U.S. Director of Media Development and Services, told The Christian Post recently. "Not only the content of hundreds of ministries, but have that content available in every one of the major languages of the world."
Stores said that TWR is currently the largest media ministry in the world when it comes to radio. Through their broadcast stations and outlets placed in strategic parts of the world, the 60-year-old ministry's primary method of delivering Christian programming is through AM, medium and short wave radio stations. more >>
