In today’s church, real love is often absent and offense, bitterness and dishonor run rampant. You’ve probably heard people say things like:
• You’d better walk in love!
• You need to accept me for who I am and where I’m at!
• Don’t judge me!
• Who are you to tell me anyway?!
Members are offended at the pastor, leadership team and other members. Furthermore, the pastor is intimidated by the leadership staff and congregation- reluctant to confront any negative behavior and habits. Is there a solution?
In this message, Honoring Church Leadership, Paztuh Mike Wuebbles tackles some tough questions and issues with scriptural backing and examples from his own life:
• What does it mean to truly walk in love?
• Do you have a right to be offended?
• How is correction relevant for today’s church?
Good sense makes one slow to anger, and it is his glory to overlook an offense.
Proverbs 19:11 ESV

You may not be able to do everything but you can do something. Share Michelle’s video with others. It could save someones life. Planning to kill herself at the age of 25, Michelle had tried everything to stop the pain: counseling, prescription medication, alcohol, self-harm, sex and drugs- nothing worked. Her childhood cut short; all innocence stolen. Michelle’s life was an endless nightmare; a living hell of brokenness, pain and self-hate. Until one day- everything changed. This is her story; Michelle’s journey of addiction to freedom and suicide to hope.

In the Spring of 2017- Tiffany was only two days away from being homeless and losing every physical item that she owned. She felt completely hopeless and alone. In addition, the seasonal job she had was also in jeopardy due to no weekly reliable transportation. Tiffany was out of options. An MSP case manager stepped in- offering resources, encouragement and even correction. Swiftly, everything began to turn around and Tiffany stepped out and took the steps and initiative to change her life. She was connected with a temporary living space right near her work so she wouldn’t lose her job. On Friday July 28th, 2017 Tiffany completed and graduated from Connection to Success’ 3 week intensive Personal and Professional Development course! During that time frame- she connected with many people, enhanced professional skills and regained hope for her future. Today- Tiffany is pursuing God’s plan for her life while also seeking a more stable living situation, steady job and gaining a vehicle of her own.
Saturday August 8th, 2015 marked the day Blue’s life changed forever. No matter what you have seen on TV, watched in a movie, or read in the Bible, actually witnessing a man getting set free from demonic possession is powerful experience. It will challenge any prior judgments and assumptions you may have on how it’s “supposed” or “not supposed” to look. Saturday afternoon the MSP team and volunteers left the Rock Church in Soulard fully expecting God to direct their steps as they carried the cross down Kingshighway. Almost immediately, the team walked up to two men- Blue and Tony, who were arguing at the bus stop, right outside the Walgreen’s parking lot. Blue had been telling Tony about his suicidal thoughts and asked him if he would just shoot him and end all the pain. Right away Pastor Frank and MiNiMe began to speak with Tony as Blue stomped off, upset, mad, and cursing because they were talking about God. As Tony was receiving prayer, Blue was on the other side stumbling in and out of the street, cursing loudly about God and the group- to the point that it was a major distraction. After they were done speaking with Tony, MiNiMe was going to go buy him a meal. As they went to cross the street, Blue stepped right in front of MiNiMe and blocked his path. Immediately, MiNiMe confronted him about the demons and asked if he wanted to be free of all of it. Blue hesitated, struggling for a few minutes and then said yes. As Pastor Frank and MiNiMe laid hands on Blue and commanded the spirits to go, the entire team began to surround them in prayer. Immediately the spirits began to leave and Blue started to confess aloud that they go away and never return. MiNiMe then asked Blue if he wanted a personal relationship with Jesus, and he eagerly said yes. By this time, Blue’s entire countenance and mannerisms had changed. After accepting Jesus, he had a huge smile on his face, light in his eyes, and kept saying, “I’m free! Yes, I am free!” As Blue filled out an MSP Hot Sheet, he explained that for years he had been bothered by demons and their voices telling him to end his life. Anything and everything he had tried to make them go away would never work. However right after the prayer, Blue said it all left- instantly. He was so thankful to be free and couldn’t wait to go home and tell everyone about Jesus and this new freedom. A couple of hours later when the team was on their way back to the church, Blue saw Gary and Pastor Frank in the truck. They picked him up and then dropped him off where he lived. MSP will be putting Blue into a church home and getting him some extra assistance. Blue also gave a short testimony on video that afternoon; be on the lookout for that story soon!!
