God has used Living on the Edge to help Christians live like Christians for 25 years.

Remembering God’s Great Faithfulness in the PAST Compels Us to Trust Him for Still Greater Things in the FUTURE

When I asked the Lord what to write to you for this year end report, the phrase above is what flashed into my mind and heart as I sat quietly before the Lord.

Twenty-five years ago, I was fearful and anxious when the Lord birthed Living on the Edge. It was new, I was pastoring a large, growing church, and we had no staff or money or experience. It was a huge step of faith!

If you would have asked me if all this was possible 25 years ago, I would have “laughed in unbelief” like Sarah. But I have learned that we serve the God of the impossible.

As I’ve taught across America, China, and the Middle East over the last 12 months, I have made 4 observations of seemingly impossible situations in the church today. Jesus is now calling me and Living on the Edge to address these and take our next huge step of faith! Please look through the following pages to learn more about how we plan to meet these needs, and how you can help!

Observation #1

There's a Famine
in the Land

Christians are undernourished and are not being spiritually fed. Bible engagement is declining, church attendance is declining, doctrinal and moral compromise is increasing, and the results are devastating. We must respond.

What God has called us to do

Teach God's Word for Everyday Living

Today, we provide one million people each week with Biblical teaching to help them live out their faith. Please pray that God would give us the opportunity to impact even more listeners with His Word through radio, app and podcast.

There's a Generation
to Rescue

The family is under siege by culture, peer pressure, technology and media. Teen suicide, isolation, depression and anxiety are skyrocketing in Christian homes. We must help and provide answers to parents, grandparents, and pastors.

What God has called us to do

Help Families Live Courageously in Today’s Culture

Today, we provide families, high school and college groups with Biblical resources to help them navigate today’s society and grow deeper in their relationship with Jesus and each other.

Observation #3

There's an Army
to Mobilize

Far too many Christians are serving out of obligation instead of passion. We must help believers discover service that provides deep personal meaning and fulfillment – because they are doing what God designed them to do!

What God has called us to do

Activate Believers into Meaningful Service

New in 2020

Serve1st is a new digital experience designed to help Christians discover meaningful service that makes a difference in the lives of others. Please pray that God would awaken the church so we are known for our love for each other and our good works.

Discovering Meaningful Service
Answers These Four Questions:

Who Am I?

What Drives Me?

How Do I Best Serve?

Where Can I Best Serve?

We want to see Christians using their spiritual gifts, God-given passions, and personal style to make a significant difference in the lives of those in need.

Observation #4

There’s a Movement
to Fuel

There are spiritually hungry leaders in China, the Middle East and the rest of the world. Leaders in these growing churches have little training, and are in desperate need to be equipped. We need to resource and train them.

What God has called us to do

Equip the Under-served Global Church

Today, God has opened amazing doors around the world. We have heavily invested in China and the Middle East, witnessing transformation on a scale we could not have imagined. Please pray God would expand our opportunities to influence church leaders in other parts of the world.

Stories of Hope & Life Change

The impossible made possible

I had made a mess of my life, and it seemed impossible to turn it around. But God faithfully used you and your teaching to renew my mind and transform my life. I am now serving in ministry and have an amazing wife and two wonderful children. Thank you for helping me see my life as a new creation in Christ. God made the impossible possible for me, and I don’t think it would have been this way apart from your influence.

WHEN GOD CALLS... GOD PROVIDES

My husband and I came upon the Why I Believe series on my phone app. As we started listening, we both felt strongly that God wanted us to lead our church group of college students through the series. We’re already seeing the fruits of the program, and we want to thank you for simple and direct teaching that you offered as a free resource to us! We are grateful to find such a wonderful way to serve our local church and bring something so vital to these college students.

A Marriage Restored

To put it simply, the Living on the Edge ministry has helped restore my marriage. At one point my husband and I both thought things were so bad that there was just no way to make it better. But thankfully, Living on the Edge was there to help point us toward God’s will for our lives. Because of your impact, we have started seeing restoration in our family. Thank you for all that you are doing to further God’s kingdom.

A call to the nations

As the son of Laotian refugees, I grew up in Tennessee, went to college, got my PhD, and now I pastor a church in Thailand. One of the biggest reasons I am in ministry is because of the incredible impact that Chip had on me, especially during my college years. God worked so powerfully through him to help me live out my calling to be a light in the darkness of Bangkok. I cannot say thank you enough for having such a powerful impact on me.

Stewarding What
God Has Provided

When you give to Living on the Edge

Your gifts are being invested to help Christians live like Christians. Every member of our team are passionate about ministering through prayer and service in order to transform families, churches, and communities for the common good and the glory of God.

Will You Partner
With Us?

We serve the God of the impossible and He is calling me and Living on the Edge to take the next huge step of faith! Is He calling you to join us?

The board and staff are fully committed to what God has called us to do. Theresa and I are leaning in at a new level as we’ve counted the cost of time, travel, family, and our financial resources.

My request is simple and direct. We need your help to fund these initiatives, will you join us? Will you pray and ask God what He would have you give? If we each do as He leads, there will be more than enough to meet the needs He is calling us to.

Thank you for your love, support, and commitment to our Lord and His command to “make disciples of all nations.”
