Tell Us Your Story: Paul Cambell

July 19, 2021 | Nathan Kaloupek

I went to Estes Park, Colorado, in the Rocky Mountains and for a week and two days I spent time railing at God and in his mercy, he didn't turn me into a cinder. On the third day, God had had enough. It's his turn to speak. And I began to see my life role as a scroll. And every instance God showing me that I had nothing to do with this. This was your decision.

And then in a moment that I can only describe as supernatural, I felt like somebody had reached into my heart and squeezed my heart.

And so I got plugged into The Salt Company right away and was leading small groups there, my sophomore through senior year.

What does the Bible say about Divorce and Remarriage?

June 1, 2021 | Matthew Morken

Statistical data about divorce is difficult to study. So many couples, infatuated with each other and excited take the plunge into marriage, do so with little or no preparation for what is to come. Even those of us who are called Christians statistically seem to have the exact same issue as our society has when it comes to divorce. In order to discuss divorce well, we need to understand what marriage is.

April 12, 2021 | Jordan Howell

For the longest time, as my parent's religion was just like something I did. Like you go to Youth Group on Wednesdays and then you'd go to church on Sundays and that's about it. But as I got older, it really became personal to me.
