Steven Curtis Chapman Shares Special Message for Charleston

Steven Curtis Chapman was so touched by the tragedy in Charleston that he sat down and wrote a song in response to the shooting. The song already has more than six million views on Facebook and he talked about it with HIS Morning Crew:

“Rev. Pinckney and the other believers gathered at Emanuel AME Church to worship, pray and study God’s Word opened their hearts & made room in their “circle” for a stranger…unknowingly but willingly inviting in the very one who would take the lives of many in their circle. They chose to love…and Love never fails…Love always has the last word!” writes Steven. 

Join Us in Praying for Charleston

Like you, we have heavy hearts over the tragedy at Emanuel AME Church in downtown Charleston, South Carolina. A prayer vigil is scheduled for today at noon at Morris Brown AME Church at 13 Morris Street in Charleston.

Boz Tchividjian Shares Tips for Parents to Keep Kids Safe From Abuse

The Duggar family has been making headlines after reports surfaced that the oldest Duggar child molested five young girls when he was a teenager. While the news has been difficult to hear, the grandson of evangelist Billy Graham, and executive director of GRACE, Godly Response to Abuse in the Christian Environment, Boz Tchividjian says there is something good coming out of this. It’s opening the dialogue about the warning signs of abuse, how we correctly respond to abuse and how to keep our children safe.

Boz joined the HIS Morning Crew to share some wisdom for parents and anyone who is a part of the body of Christ. Due to the sensitive nature of this topic, we aired only a small portion of this live on the air, but we wanted to make the entire interview available for viewing.

One in 4 women and 1 in 6 men have been sexually abused by the time they turn 18. Boz says offenders are often born and raised in the church. But it’s our job to put the victim first because the damage from sexual abuse can last a lifetime.

Brandon Heath Raising Money to Send Kids to Camp

Twenty years ago, the summer of 1995, life changed drastically for Brandon Heath. The popular recording artist spent part of his summer at a Young Life camp. Although his family couldn’t afford the fees to attend, Young Life leaders raised 80% of the funds so he could go and hear about Jesus. He says he was never the same.

Now he’s paying it forward by raising $5,000 to send 20 students to Young Life camp this summer. This money will help leaders who extend last-minute conversations with kids who can’t afford the experience. To hep Brandon reach his goal visit YoungLife.org.
