Meet Nick & RyleyWe have some really amazing students here at Horizon.  Our community is small and tight knit, and therefore it is easy to get to know one another.  It has been a joy to get to know each and every one of these students over these past few months and we want to give you the… Read More Meet Nick & Ryley [...]

Did You Know?Recently, some of the staff members were reading the story of our college’s history in Songs of the Reaper. As we read through it, we were struck by the rich history of Horizon College.  While there were many facts and stories that stood out, the one thing we could not ignore were the parallels between history and modern day.  … Read More Did You K [...]

The MissionLast week, during our Thursday morning chapel, Dr. Jeromey Martini walked us through 2 Timothy 2:1-13. He walked us through what it means to succeed in Christian life and ministry, and how that connects with our mission of “advancing God’s kingdom by preparing competent Christian leaders for Spirit empowered life and ministry.” Take a listen.… Read [...]

This post is part of a periodic series on “Current Pentecostal Scholarship.” In today’s video, I interview Dr. E. Janet Warren about various biblical depictions of how we encounter evil and what implications these have for Christian life as well as for pastors and counselors.  You might also be interested in these posts: Demons Have No […] The post [...]

People around here love Christmas. Well maybe not the grumpy local atheist who argues that the city should take “Merry Christmas” off of the city buses. But I suspect that even he likes the “Happy Holidays.” Regardless of how we refer to the season, I think people love the holidays because Christmas gets to the meaning of life and, for at least a s [...]

Macchia, Terry L. Cross, and […] [...]

I agree [...]

A couple weeks ago I was a guest lecturer for a course on the Holy Spirit at Carey Graduate School in Auckland, New Zealand. The professor had invited me to share on the topic of the Holy Spirit and Leadership. But if you’ve read many books on the Holy Spirit, you will know that they don’t include chapters on leadership. The post The Holy Spirit an [...]

This is one of those types of posts where I’m sharing my heart. In part, likely because I know I’m already setting myself up for criticism, and if I could avoid it, I’d high tail it in the other direction. But I’m a pioneer... [...]

It’s going to sound ridiculous, I know. How could I possibly have the word Peace as my 2019 Word? And how on earth could I feel a sense of being invited to retreat in my soul while also saying “Yes!” to open doors and... [...]
