Tell your world about Him!
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 23, 2018

When you and I look at the New Testament, we see that every person who came to Christ came openly and publicly. There were no secret disciples – each person who followed Christ took up his or her cross and followed Jesus openly. In fact, public confession of the Lord Jesus is one of those “things that belong to salvation,” (Hebrews 6:9). Confessing Christ simply goes hand in hand with salvation.

The best is yet to come
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 22, 2018

Do you realize that there are things that come with salvation? That’s exactly what today’s verse says. There are things that “belong to” or accompany our salvation, things that help you and me grow into maturity. And these are things are worth acknowledging with praise and gratitude to God.

Victory is on its way
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 19, 2018

There is so much that you and I can learn from the failures and victories of athletic champions. And not too long ago I learned one of these lessons by reading about legendary UCLA basketball coach John Wooden.

Experiencing God's delight
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 18, 2018

As you might imagine, I have many people who ask, “Jack, what should I do with my life? How do I please God with my life?”  It’s an important question, because not everyone knows how to live a life that has meaning… that brings pleasure to God.

Are you empty handed?
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 17, 2018

Do you remember the story in the book of Luke when the disciples had fished all night and caught nothing? Seeing they were empty handed, Jesus told Simon Peter to throw the nets on the other side of the boat.

From ordinary to extraordinary
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 16, 2018

I love the stories in the Scripture where people are called by God to do something special for him. These people are just like you and me, just common, ordinary people.

Jesus was a man's man
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 15, 2018

I want to challenge each of you today to be a full-out, full-throttle believer and follower of Christ Jesus! But let me say something especially to the men who are reading today. And women, please share this with your brothers, husbands, sons, and male friends.

You are God's work of art
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 12, 2018

Men are often told to “get in touch with their feminine side” in order to be more integrated and sensitive human beings. But what we really need… men and women alike… is to get in touch with our spiritual side! And Simon Peter is a great example.

Have you found new life?
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 11, 2018

Did you know that there are more conversations recorded between Jesus and Simon Peter than any other two people in Scripture?  It’s true, and I want to bring your attention to one such conversation. Jesus is saying something so important to you and me through it.

Jesus sees your potential
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 10, 2018

Don’t you just love Simon? His human flaws are so much like yours and mine. He could be impetuous and irresponsible just as surely as he could be personally engaging. But something happened in his life that changed him forever.

Living an uncommon life
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 9, 2018

One of the most well known of all the early Christ-followers is Simon, whom Jesus called Simon Peter. And Jesus has so much to say to you and me through this larger-than-life personality.

Your support is changing lives!
By PowerPoint Ministries | January 1, 2018

Your support is helping inspire the next generation of pastors to share the Gospel in powerful ways through the Prestonwood Network. Read what a few of them had to say…

I’m just so thankful for the wisdom they have empowered to young guys like myself. It is invaluable. – Jason Lankford

The partnership is invaluable, that we can minister alongside one another and be stronger together in the Gospel. – Rusty McMullen

My biggest challenge was figuring out how I was going to make it through another year of ministry, but this has been such a blessing to me. It’s been so refreshing, and I feel like I’m going back with a little bit more fire in my heart because of your investment. – Brandon Park

From Pastor’s Desk
By Dr. Jack Graham | January 1, 2018

Dear Friend,

Each new year of ministry comes with its own opportunities and challenges.

But as we enter 2018, the culture of America can seem especially troublesome. People are turning away from the Church in droves, and biblical values don’t mean what they used to.

That’s why I’m so grateful for your gifts and prayers – which I know are making a difference. Stories flood our inbox every day of lives redeemed because your gifts helped them hear the Gospel through television or radio broadcasts.

And through our partnership with Prestonwood Network, new pastors and churches are being raised up to shift the tide and bring people back to Church.

So, I’m not discouraged. And you shouldn’t be either.

But I do ask for your prayers as we enter this new year of ministry together…

  • Pray for those who will be introduced to Jesus Christ through PowerPoint Ministries.
  • Pray for those who will attend a church service for the first time in years.
  • And pray for those who will accept the call of ministry to preach the Gospel.

Thank you for your support to help reach our world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I know God has great things planned through our partnership this year!

’Til the whole world hears,

One-on-one with Dr. Jack Graham
By PowerPoint Ministries | January 1, 2018

PowerPoint recently sat down with Dr. Jack Graham to talk about his passion for the lost and the local church – and how your gifts and prayers are helping push forward the greatest cause in the world.

PowerPoint: What is your greatest ministry passion?

Dr. Jack Graham: My greatest passion in ministry is fulfilling the Great Commission of our Lord and Savior:

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you.” (Matthew 28:19-20 ESV)

Jesus tells us to have hearts filled with compassion for others – what Jesus calls mercy. Leading someone to salvation promised by our Savior is a beautiful example of mercy. It is an extension of the mercy of God Himself.

Why is a local church important?

The greatest cause on earth to fulfill the Great Commission is the local church. Thus, it is critical that churches teach the biblical truth of God’s Word both within our neighborhoods and to every corner of the world – until every ear has heard. And, of course, the local church provides fellowship with believers, provides spiritual instruction, and allows us to mentor and encourage one another.

How does PowerPoint Ministries support local churches?

PowerPoint’s global coverage carries the Word of God to some of the most inaccessible areas in the world. It takes the saving message of hope to people who otherwise might never hear God’s promise of salvation, and it also is “church” to those who cannot attend or don’t have access to a thriving, Bible-believing, evangelistic local church. But I always want to encourage...
