Connecting with Others
The mission of Calvary Church is to be and make authentic followers of Jesus Christ. An essential part of that mission is connecting with people and effectively communicating the Gospel to them.
The Verdict radio ministry is one of our many outreaches at Calvary. Now in more than 20 states, this 25-minute radio program (and podcast) presents edited versions of my messages as daily Bible studies. I challenge listeners as to their response — their verdict — to the Word of God.
This ministry continues to grow as we identify additional opportunities to connect with new listeners and our existing audience. Recently we added my weekly Avizandum podcast, and we continue to produce outreach materials such as the new booklet, Jesus Speaks on Marriage and Gender ($5 in the Word Room, offered free on-air to listeners).
This week we are excited a launch a new website for The Verdict at This website allows listeners to more easily find and engage with the program, listen to episodes, request free materials, purchase CDs, and donate as the Lord may lead.
Check out the new website! It’s a great way to listen to the daily programs and Avizandum. And be sure to share the new website with friends and perhaps mention it on social media. We also ask for your continued prayers. Praise God for this additional tool to reach out to others with the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ!
