As a pastor, it’s easy to feel like you carry the entire burden of ministry on your own. You want to lead people into a deeper faith, but there aren’t enough hours in the day for you to disciple everyone.
Do you ever feel like you’re in an uphill battle for your congregation’s attention? If so, you’re not alone.
People are more distracted than ever by screens. And even if we happen to have the TV on, chances are we’re probably doing something on our mobile devices. As of 2019, the average person spends four hours per day watching TV. That adds up to 20 hours on weekdays alone and doesn’t include time spent on social media.
This month on Faithlife TV, learn about ordinary people outside of the Bible who stepped out in faith and led extraordinary lives for Christ. Some—like Heidi Baker—have a vibrant ministry we can follow today.

Few writers have captured the hearts and imaginations of millions like J. R. R. Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and George MacDonald have. They forged the way to fantastical worlds while teaching lessons about good and evil, selflessness and pride, bravery and cowardice.
