OYC: Two Sisters Arrive at OYC Sites

These two sisters, Londi and Marin, arrived at their One Year Challenge sites after long hours of flying, lots of planning and many prayers. Londi arrived this past Sunday afternoon, Marin, at 1 a.m. this morning! We are so encouraged by their faith.

Has a New Era Begun for the ICOC?

Prayer at WDSThe 1980's and 90's were a heady period of growth and expansion for the International Churches of Christ. We exploded into over 100 nations, and planted 500 churches worldwide. As the 90's finished, however, our growth had stopped, our US churches were shrinking, and there were some problems we needed to face.
When the new millennium dawned, our issues became a full blown crisis. We lost 30% of our members, and what followed was a decade of reflection, repentance, and reorganization. As a fellowship we took several big steps. We apologized to each other. We held painful open forums in many congregations. Leadership practices were examined, and we repented where needed. The appropriate people were fired. We abolished worldwide offices of authority. It was a painful yet productive decade, and through the power of God we watched as He righted the ship and healed our wounds. Today we are a fellowship of churches that loves God's word and is eager to spread his message. We have tossed out the old pride and braggadocio, and (hopefully) replaced it with a humble attitude about ourselves, and toward other Christians outside our churches.

Honestly, I have never been more proud to be a part of the ICOC.

A Biblical Case for Self-Love

“Love…yourself”

The idea to love yourself is not just a concept fraught with conflicted emotions or fear of conceit. It is a command from God that takes self-denial, reflection and input from others to achieve. Here are a few scriptures to meditate over in our journey.

Pray for Providence, Rhode Island

April 23 - Pray for Rhode Island!

Ephesians 1:18-19
I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which he has called you, the riches of his glorious inheritance in the saints, [19] and his incomparably great power for us who believe.


The International Missions Society has been hosting a "month of prayer for missions." Today we are praying for the state of Rhode Island, known as "The Ocean State" because of the numerous bays and inlets which add about 15% to its total area.
