May 16, 2017

Michael Deleone knows first hand how drug addiction destroys your life and relationships. Michael had a lifestyle of using drugs to try to mask the pain of childhood trauma.  When God showed up and totally set him free, He knew he had to share this freedom and love with others. 

Michael is now on a mission: to educate the youth to stay in the right direction - 'Steered Straiight'- when it comes to serious life issues, especially drugs.  This mission carries an important message to youth on the extreme dangers of drugs, gang involvement and associated criminal activity. Steered Straight’s program reaches out to children, teens and young adults with a message of reality about life-choices and the importance of consequential thinking so that they understand there are consequences to their actions.

Is There Someone You Can’t Live Without?

May 16, 2017

Darla had an alcoholic father who left the family. She always felt her Father didn't love her enough to stop drinking. She developed a very low self esteem and was bullied. When she met her husband she believed he would make her feel loved, happy and complete. She became co-dependent on him.  But his habit of crack cocaine took him far away and left her alone and empty.

Listen to Darla's story as she tells how she too ended up in prison.  But someone totally unexpected met her there. This is an amazing story of  hopelessness - turned to hopeful, healing and redemption.... This is only possible through Jesus.

Part 1… With So Many Beliefs in the World - How Do you Know What to Believe?

May 11, 2017

"If you don't know what to believe - you'll believe in anything!" Although Steven Bancarz was raised in a Christian home, he never had a personal relationship with Jesus.  In his teens, he began having questions about spirituality, re-incarnation and aliens which led him into the deception of Panthesim, Para-Psychology and New Age Mysticism.  

He had reached the pinnacle of success through his New Age website and blog, but still felt dark, unfilled and empty. What experience caused him to discover the real truth about all of this? Listen as he shares an encounter that awakened his mind and heart to the truth of deception - a demonic strategy to keep us from the real truth.
