DENNIS PARNELL – INTERVIEW # 1

Proverbs 15:22 (ESV) Without counsel plans fail, but with many advisers they succeed.

Dennis Parnell is an old schoolmate and friend of Jonathan’s. This was a great reconnection of that friendship.

Dennis shared his testimony. He was born in Fort Lauderdale and was raised in a home that did not know the Lord. His dad died when he was 3 years old. Dennis is the 7th of 8 boys.

As a youth, Dennis was entangled in drugs. He met a man named Chip Thompson with Evangelism Explosion. Chip said that God’s availability is my opportunity to do a miracle. He prayed with Dennis, and although Dennis didn’t accept the Lord that day, the door was opened.

One day Dennis was doing LSD, and was having a really bad trip. Dennis really thought he was in Hell! He called out to God. God answered, and he didn’t die. Then he ran into Chip again… Dennis says, “I didn’t find the Lord, the Lord arrested me”.

Dennis goes on to talk about his education: Hobe Sound Bible College, Bob Jones Medical School, and then Seminary where he received a Biblical Literature Degree (a teaching degree). After Seminary, he graduated with a Masters in Counseling and started working in Mental Health, moved on to Substance Abuse and then, his marriage fell apart, so Dennis went back to manual labor.

Dennis says, it takes an average of 5 years to heal from divorce. He went back into counseling in 2005 working as a therapist in the jail system.

Today, Dennis’ practice is Teletherapy, which took off really strong during covid. Dennis is licensed in 2 states – Florida and Indiana. His practice is working with Grief & Loss, Family Issues, Self-esteem, Co-dependency and more.

When Jonathan asked Dennis “How healthy is the Church” Dennis responded that it is not much different than the world. “We kill our wounded. It’s not safe.” Pastors especially don’t feel safe talking to others with their problems. Dennis referenced Christian Counselor & Author Larry Crabb by saying “We lost our sense of status. We feel the need to cover our nakedness with fig leaves”.

Dennis encourages us to be more open with each other. Pastors have needs, and need to trust, need to feel safe to open up. He says “Secrets grow in the darkness”. Pastors need accountability but be aware of the “well intentioned dragons in the church”.

He talks about a “5 Second Rule”. It only takes 5 seconds before going into self-protection mode. Reach Out! Find somebody who doesn’t condemn or condone, but who will treat.

Dennis can be reached through 2 websites: Growththerapy.com

2 IMPORTANT INTERVIEWS. PLEASE READ
Sue & Sam Chess holding Amendment 4 Poster #2 -full baby face down-vote no amendment 4-life is in you hands

WEDNESDAY LIVE, INTERVIEW #1– JULY 10, 2024

Leviticus 20:2 (ESV) “Say to the people of Israel, Any one of the people of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech shall surely be put to death. The people of the land shall stone him with stones.”

Psalm 139:13 (ESV) “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother's womb.”

Today’s Wednesday Live was a very hard topic –

FLORIDA AMENDMENT 4 coming up for VOTE to change our State Constitution on November 5th. It appears to be a topic that is just not very popular, nor is it well known in the Churches and among the Body of Christ!

Our Guests today, all 4 of them focused on the subject of this Amendment and the evil, deceptive ramifications it contains in its writing.

Introducing our first 2 Guests today, Sue and Pastor Sam Chess. Sue is the Chief Executive Officer at Care Net Pregnancy Center of the Treasure Coast, Sam is the Pastor of Grace Emmanuel Church in Port St. Lucie.

Sue began immediately with the word ‘CRITICAL’. Amendment 4 has only 26 words, and only a 23-word definition, not pages and pages as all other amendments have.

Sue begins to say, When this Amendment came up for vote in Ohio, 28% of the Evangelical Christians voted YES! The were duped! It wasn’t until after the amendment passed into the state’s Constitutional Law, they were horrified to find out that a baby can be aborted up to the day of birth! Seven states have passed this so far!

This amendment is worded to sound like it is limiting government, when in fact it is just the opposite. If Amendment 4 is voted in, it will become a Constitutional Amendment in Florida, and will supersede all of the laws put in place regarding abortion in Florida. It will cancel out every good law we have in place in in our state.

This amendment uses phrases and words such as: ‘No Law Shall Prohibit, ‘Viability’, and ‘Or’’, leaving giant loopholes to promote and encourage abortion. The phrase ‘Parental Notification’ replaces ‘Parental Consent’, and a ‘Healthcare Provider’ can be anyone from your physician to your massage therapist or tattoo artist! The wording has been deceptively kept vague to alter the true meaning, the way it appears.

Pastor Sam encourages us. There is a Pathway to Fight Back! Treasure Coast Christian Alliance has gotten behind this effort to bring awareness to a people! They are Printing Signs – with Babies on them. Currently in production now are 4’x8’ yard signs. More will be printed up that are smaller as well.

Pastor Sam is asking Straight Up – WOULD YOU CONSIDER PARTNERING ON THIS WITH US? We already have a team of people excited to put them up! These signs cost money, so your donations would help to pay for these signs so we can put them everywhere throughout the Treasure Coast. Pastor Sam is also connecting with Ed Daccarett to work out putting up a Billboard on US1. This is not just an Evangelical Church thing. Even the Catholic Church is involved!

You can log onto WCNO.COM. On the Florida Amendment 4 page, you will find a CLICK HERE link to the Treasure Coast Christian Alliance site that contains all of the information you need to look at the signs, donate toward the signs, and lit us know if you want a sign! There is also a link to the site that explains Amendment 4.

WEDNESDAY LIVE / INTERVIEW #2 – JULY 10, 2024

 

Leviticus 20:2 (ESV) “Say to the people of Israel, Any one of the people of Israel or of the strangers who sojourn in Israel who gives any of his children to Molech shall surely be put to death. The people of the land shall stone him with stones.”

Psalm 139:13 (ESV) “For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb.”

 

Our Next 2 Guests today will also bring to light the tragedy of Abortion from the beginning of its inception to law in America.

Stephanie Jacobson, a Board Member of Care Net of the Treasure Coast and a member of Help3Helptline joins us in the Studio.

Atty. Allan Parker, President of the Justice Foundation, from Texas is on the phone. Allan can speak about this quite well, as he was the Lead Council for Norma McCorvey (the Roe in Roe v Wade) and for Sandra Cano (the Doe in Doe v Bolton). Allan also represents Operation Outcry, a ministry of The Justice Foundation.

Allan began to represent Norma McCorvey and Sandra Cano in the year 2000 in their legal efforts to reverse the 2 cases that brought abortion on America as a supposed Federal Constitutional Right. In the year 2000. Allan says, “Sandra told him an incredible story of fraud and deception.” Her case created the ‘Health Exception’ which they put into the Florida law. Sandra never wanted an abortion! She fled to Oklahoma to be away from the Georgia law.

Allan began Operation Outcry to give a voice to post-abortive women. You can login to sign a declaration. His website is www.TheJusticeFoundation.org. This website contains free valuable information, and link to www.OperationOutcry.org.

Allan formulated Operation Outcry to help mobilize women hurt by abortion to become witnesses who share their true stories through courts and legislatures of the devastating effects of abortion. This site also posts the testimonies of Norma McCorvey and Sandra Cano.

In addition, Allan Parker wrote a book – Reversing Roe V. Wade. This book refutes the 2 lies that state 1) Its not a baby, 2) Its good for women. It is inexpensive, and all proceeds go to The Justice Foundation.

Stephanie wants you to know she is here for you! You can reach her by calling Care Net 772-828-3168. If you call the H3Helpline, she may even answer your call personally as she is active in this ministry to help post-abortive women – 866-721-7881

INTERVIEW #1 – JONATHAN GIADALONE

2 Timothy 2:1-2 (NLT) “Timothy, my dear son, be strong through the grace that God gives you in Christ Jesus. You have heard me teach things that have been confirmed by many reliable witnesses. Now teach these truths to other trustworthy people who will be able to pass them on to others.”

Jonathan Giandalone, after a falling away from the Lord, came back to God 17 years ago while at the beach! God touched him that day, and it was a natural response to just share with others. God called him as an Evangelist to the Mission Field that day.

Intervarsity Christian Fellowship is an international organization that started ab out 75 years ago. The vision is to see Students and Faculty Transformed, Campuses Renewed, and World Changers Developed. Jonathan says, “It is very crucial to create a Christian Community and have a presence on campus so they will still be walking with God when they graduate”.

Jonathan states “Students are very vulnerable between the ages of 18 and 20. They want to figure out what life is about. Intervarsity is there to help students find that relationship with God.”

“Every student ‘s faith will be tested. We deal with Apologetics to help them, equip and encourage Bible reading and bring them back to God’s Word.”

Jonathan has a format to his ministry to teach student to be reconciled to Christ through Humility, Repentance and Belief. Jonathan uses an Inductive verse by verse Bible Study. There is a 7 week Discipleship training, and an optional call to leadership on the 7th week. Jonathan says that many students respond to this leadership call.

Jonathan Giandalone can be reached at 772-812-3201. He is eager to take your call and give you more information about the IRSC Intervarsity program. You may also visit the website: www.intervarsity.org for more information on this organization.

INTERVIEW #2 – DIANE LUDWIG

Luke 4:17-19 (ESV) “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim liberty to the captives and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty those who are oppressed, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

Women’s Refuge in Vero Beach is a Residential program for Women who need to be Restored, Refreshed, and Renewed! Diane Ludwig Executive Director of Women’s Refuge joined us today to tell us about this wonderful ministry to women offering Hope & Healing, Biblical Counseling, and Training and Discipleship.

The program offers women the opportunity to stay a minimum of 2 weeks, and up to 9 months. There is an additional program that is 15 months – 2 years.

Women’s Refuge is a Second Step Program. A woman must be sober/drug free for at least 6 months before coming into the program.

In addition to the Live-In facility, they also offer Biblical Counseling and Support Groups dealing with issues such as Anger Management, Overcomers, Abuse, etc. This is available Monday thru Friday, 9 -5.

One of the goals of Women’s Refuge is to get more and more Churches and Organizations to know them and refer women to their program. Pastors and Pastor’s Wives often are burdened by the many challenges they have with the ladies in their churches that need help. These women can be referred to Women’s Refuge. In addition, pastor’s wives can come in for refreshing and restoration themselves in order to continue the work of the Lord!

Sometimes, women come back into the program for a season when other issues arise with which they need help and encouragement, helping them get through the cycles of life, get ahead, get past the trauma or barrier that needs to be dealt with.. getting to the core issue and receive healing.

Diane urges you if you need help, reach out and make the call today! You can have victory in your life. Call 772-770-4424.

John Nelson, Theresa, Sassie, Jamie Testimonies

WEDNESDAY LIVE JUNE 26, 2024 INTERVIEW #2
John Nelson – with Theresa, Sassie, Jamie

Matthew 10: 39-40 (NIV) Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it. Anyone who welcomes you welcomes me, and anyone who welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me.

WCNO plays a greater role in the lives of people than one could ever imagine. WCNO 89.9 FM is here to testify to this truth. Read on.

Our good friend, John Nelson – Families Recover joins us with 3 ladies who have testimonies of a renewed life in Christ. All 3 recovered from addiction and moving forward in life because they made the right choice.

Let’s begin with Theresa! Theresa was in Jail, and one of the ladies with her told her about WCNO and that she should listen.

About a year ago, Theresa was just out of jail and only had $14 in her pocket – no home, no job. She wanted to take the classes she needed to get recertified for her job. Yet she felt desperate and alone. Theresa made up her mind to commit Suicide! But she wanted to make it look like an accident so her kids would not know the truth. While seeking the method to kill herself, she was listening to WCNO. As we often do, John Nelson, founder of Families Recover was on the air with us that day. Theresa heard John say he was there to help. And as always, John gave out his phone number over the air… 772-285-5828. Theresa made the call, and John answered his phone.

John helped her through the process. He helped her get into Oxford House in Fort Pierce, where she is still living now. And with some funds from Families Recover ministry, paid for her certification, even called her old boss who said he would take her back – even said ‘they needed her there!”

A year later, Theresa is no longer addicted to the prescription drug Adderall, is now back in relationship with her children, and working at her old job. She now has her license, and the next step for her is a car.

Johnathan asked her, what would you say to someone who needs help? “Pray! There is hope. I am so thankful I made the phone call. Reach out! Make a decision to make a change”.

If you need help, DON’T HESITATE! CALL JOHN… 772-285-5828

Two more short testimonies followed – Sassie and Jamie. Stories of hope and a future.

Wednesday live
interview # 1 June 26

Philippians 3:20 (NLT) “But we are citizens of heaven, where the Lord Jesus Christ lives. And we are eagerly waiting for Him to return as our Savior.”

 

Steve and Cindy Camp joined us today in the Studio.  He is a friend of WCNO! You may remember, around Christmas time, Steve joined us in the Studio, where for the first time aired anywhere you heard his new Christmas Song entitled Immanuel. Going back all the way to the mid-80’s, Steve’s music was very popular! Even still today, Steve brings a message of what is real, and where we find our hope.

Steve shared with us that his wedding anniversary was last Wednesday, the 19th. He and Cindy have been married for 15 years. This is a great story. We encourage you to listen to it on WCNO’s ON DEMAND Link.

Talking about the Sovereignty of God, Steve says we need to be aware of the times. Bringing up the Debate tomorrow night, he says “Do we trust God in His Sovereignty? In His Sovereignty He primarily uses ‘unsaved’ people in the political realm to keep order in government and society. We want someone first and foremost dedicated to the Rule of Law. If they’re saved and also dedicated to the Scripture, that would be awesome!” Steve brings up an example, stating “Out of Babylon in Daniel, they had a Nebuchadnezzar, a ruthless leader. But also had a Cyrus who helped post-captivity Israel to rebuild.”

He says, people in the Church are not often familiar with the rule of law, the Constitution, and they should be! We are citizens of this world, but we are also Citizens of Heaven, siting the above Scripture, Philippians 3:20.

Steve is the Pastor of Cross Church. They recently moved from Palm City to the southern end of Fort Pierce. They sold the property here, and purchased a home by Midway Dr where they are enjoying Home Church. (Steve researched, and found that for the first 300 years of Church history, they were all house churches). In their new House Church there is intimacy & prayer time.

If you are interested to join them and see what Cross Church is all about, they meet on Sundays at 10:00 to 11:30 am. Fellowship follows directly afterward. This is for the whole family. They are located at 4919 Pinetree Dr. Fort Pierce. You can call them at:772-341-8271.

Steve shared his Newest Song with us SUNDAY USED TO BE. This song is a call to worship! A call to Sabbath Worship. Please listen and enjoy this new song. You can copy this link into your browser!

WEDNESDAY LIVE – JUNE 12, 2024

Proverbs 22:6 (NLT) Direct your children onto the right path, and when they are older, they will not leave it.

Two ‘IN STUDIO’ guests today bringing to you the Need for Kids to have a “HANDS ON” Dad in the home. Our first guest, Stewart Feketa shared his testimony of a life of drug and alcohol abuse. Our second guest, Shamus Gordon shared his ministry, FATHER CHILD CONNECTION,  a solution to families with absent dads.

Let’s start with the Solution!

Shamus knows just how important a Dad is in the family, and “how much effort the devil does to put them (dad’s) out” and how the devil “isolates fathers from family”. Shamus stated that in time of war and during slavery, men were separated from families. This was an attack of the enemy.

Shamus realized, although his father was there, he never heard his father tell him “I love you”. This is so very important for your child to hear and know. So Shamus created a new program that is 3-fold.

  1. Fathers Taking Care of Themselves, using the acronym SPIES – S-Spiritual, P-Physical, I-Intellectually, E-Emotionally, S-Socially.
  2. Recruiting DADTORS – mentors for children with no fathers
  3. MOM SENSE, a new program for single moms that think they don’t need a man in the home. This helps to show them that even if they don’t need a man, the children need a father figure.

Dadtors are encouraged to meet with the child at least one hour each week. This can be all at once or the time can be broken up to fit the needs. This one hour can make such a tremendous difference in the life of a child.

Every male figure that comes forward to serve as a father figure is background checked very thoroughly before Dadtor training begins!  If you are interested in becoming a Dadtor, a father figure to a child, contact Shamus. Training can be done in person or by ZOOM. You don’t have to be the ‘ideal person’ to be a Dadtor. One can teach a child “what not to be” Shamus says, ‘A wise man learns from his mistakes. A wiser man learns from the mistakes of others”. We have been created to be effective dads to Dad-UP!

Shamus can be reached at 561-229-2379 / admin@thefatherchildconnection.org

Stewart Feketa shared a testimony that is all too common. From the age of 12 until he was 34 his life of drugs and alcohol took him down into some pretty dark places. Stewart lost his first son, Cory to SIDS at 11 months old. From studying the cause of SIDS, he learned that children born to men addicted to cocaine were more likely to have children born with SIDS.

Stewart also noted that 94% of children that commit suicide come from families who don’t have fathers!

Stewart’s life took many twists and turns, taking him to ungodly, evil, dark places, and a life of degradation. Yet, because of his upbringing, his sense of responsibility to his children, and to pay his bills on time, kept him looking forward.

Later in his life, Stewart met a man named Al. Al changed his life. Al was bold enough to confront Stewart with TRUTH and love. Stewart didn’t want to hear what he had to say, but Al was insistent and persistent in his pursuit of Stewart.

Stewart works with Pastor Al Pigozzi, pastor of “Plant A Seed Ministries. You can join them each Sunday morning in person at 9:00 AM at Plant A Seed On The Water Church. Causeway Cove Marina, Fort Pierce. Can’t be there? Join them Live – www.pasministries.com

WEDNESDAY LIVE – JUNE 5, 2024

(Genesis 1:27-28a NLT) “So God created human beings in His own image. In the image of God He created them; male and female He created them. Then God blessed them and said, “Be fruitful and multiply….”

Today’s Wednesday Live was POWERFUL! Flipping the order of Guests as you heard them today, I will begin with Stephanie Jacobson.

Abortion is a hot topic on the news, but the Church is conflicted and is not as vocal as it should be. Many Christians are really, either uninformed, embarrassed because they have had abortions and won’t talk about it, some are Pro-Life yet with exceptions, while others are Pro-Life, period! Many Pastors won’t even approach the subject from the pulpit.

Stephanie Jacobson began to site the Preamble to the Constitution like this….We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. THEN she went on to say…WHAT’S MISSING!  LIFE IS MISSING. WITHOUT LIFE, THERE IS NO LIBERTY OR PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.

Stephanie Jacobson began today by telling us that she has had 2 abortions, and she has first hand experience to tell us the truth. The TOPIC of today’s discussion is the upcoming Ballot Initiative to make ABORTION LEGAL UP TO BIRTH a Constitutional Law in the State of Florida. Stephanie explains to us how the language of this Amendment is so deceptive and vague, that even many Christians are being deceived. That is why Stephanie is urging us to talk to EVERYONE, not just our conservative friends.

Jonathan interjected that this is promoted by Pro-Abortionists! Life is precious, and we have to protect it.

The language in this Amendment is biased to the pro-abortion movement. For instance, any Health Care Provider can recommend a woman should have an abortion for her unborn baby. But just who is described as a health care provider? Anyone that puts their hands on the person.. this can be a Tattoo Artist, a Massage Therapist, etc. Anyone that is touching you! They are not just Pro-Abortion, they are Pro-Death, Jonathan said.

The Church needs to stand up! Planned Parenthood is “Counting on a Sleepy and Lethargic Church!”

VOTE ‘NO’ on AMENDMENT 4!

Continuing her conversation, Stephanie proceeded to explain the dangers of the “Abortion Pill? (RU-486). This is a most dangerous and life-threatening way for women to abort their unborn children. And distribution is so easy – no doctor visits, can be purchased on telemedicine, online, on the black market, can be purchased by men, and given to minors! This Stephanie says opens up a whole new problem with trafficking!

Stephanie is aggressively pursuing this abortion issue because she is passionate to help women to make better choices. If you have had an abortion and need help, you can contact H3HELPLINE.ORG or call 866-721-7881 There are people available to provide a safe, confidential, 24/7 Helpline for those who have experienced abortion, by offering encouragement and resources to start their healing journey.

As if this isn’t enough, Michael Hennessey joined us to tell about his journey through Abandonment, Adoption, and Abuse and his journey to finding Jesus and healing from past trauma. You can hear his testimony on WCNO.COM / ONDEMAND!

Preceding and starting off our morning today was Michael Simos. He came with a testimony of how God used his weekly morning Prayer Group that meets at Higher Ground Corner Cafe to touch the hearts of other diners that day to “PAY IT FORWARD”. Higher Ground Corner Café is located at 2001 N US 1, Fort Pierce. Michael encourages you to stop by, enjoy a meal, and support a local Christian Business.

AGAIN, you can hear this program in its entirety by going to WCNO.COM and clicking on the WAYS TO LISTEN tab, ONDEMAND.

WEDNESDAY LIVE – MAY 29, 2024

(Jude 1:3-4 NLT)   “Dear friends, I had been eagerly planning to write to you about the salvation we all share. But now I find that I must write about something else, urging you to defend the faith that God has entrusted once for all time to his holy people.  I say this because some ungodly people have wormed their way into your churches, saying that God’s marvelous grace allows us to live immoral lives. The condemnation of such people was recorded long ago, for they have denied our only Master and Lord, Jesus Christ.”

TPUSA FAITH, Founded by Charlie Kirk, is bringing to you “The Believers Summit”, July 26-28, at the Palm Beach County Convention Center.

From their website:

At this crucial time in America, the Believers Summit is not just an event; it’s a call for believers to rise in unity and biblical truth with an unshakeable faith. We are committed to empowering attendees with practical knowledge and strategies to live out their faith boldly and counteract the prevailing ‘woke’ narratives with grace, truth, and conviction, rooted in the Gospel.

 “Here I Am” is the central theme of the event, echoing a biblical principle of readiness and obedience. This theme encourages attendees to stand alongside biblical heroes of the Faith, embracing a willingness and readiness to serve. It calls on participants to cultivate a heart of service, mirroring the willingness to say “yes,” just as those who have walked before us.

With 40+ speakers, I would think this to be a most interesting Summit. You can see more details on their website: https://www.tpusafaithevents.com/

Today’s only, but most important and regular guests in the studio were Ma & Pa! The conversation began with Pa telling Ma how several local businesses in Bickers Corner were going out of business due to the suppressed economy which began with Covid, and how so much of our purchasing in done online! Well, this put Ma in a tithy when she heard that her favorite store, “Martha’s Delicate Underthings’ was also one of those closing their doors!

So if you want a good laugh, and a spiritual lesson, please listen to Wednesday Live’s program: https://wcno.com/ways-to-listen/

And now, our In-Studio Guest today.. Pastor Chacko Varghese. Born in India, Pastor Chacko was the child of Christian parents, brought up to love the Lord. He was a pharmacist for 40 years when the call to ministry came to him from God to minister to all people of all nations and tell them about Him! So on September 26, 1989 Chacko started his ministry, to speak to people, and to evangelize. He wrote Gospel Tracts, went to people’s homes, and praying. In 1998, living in Coconut Creek Florida, he looked at a telephone book and found an Assemblies of God Church which is what he and his parents attended in India. Chacko wanted to know how to reach out to the whole world, as the Lord instructed him. The Lord said to him, write a book! Since he never wrote a book before, he started to research.. Wanting to know what to write, he asked the Lord and the Lord said, Write about Me! So his first book is titled “When You Meet God” Pastor Chacko’s second book is “Does God Answer Your Prayers?”.  

His third and most current book is “Violence, Murder, and Massacre”. This one may be a little closer to home for him. His daughter, when in 11th grade was in Parkland School on Valentine’s Day 2018 when the shooting began. She and her 2 friends were running to get out of the school. Chacko’s daughter escaped the bullets. Her two friends did not, and they were shot down.

Chacko explains how violence started in Heaven when satan sinned. The first murder was Cain. The purpose of writing this book was to find the solution. He says, God is the SOLUTION – JESUS TRANSFORMS YOU. Chacko’s books can be found on Amazon.com and at Barns and Noble.

WEDNESDAY LIVE – MAY 15, 2024

“Every time I think of you, I give thanks to my God. Whenever I pray, I make my requests for all of you with joy, for you have been my partners in spreading the Good News about Christ from the time you first heard it until now.  And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.”  (Philippians 1:3-6 NLT)

Kim Stryker and Marty Jean-Louis, today’s Guests on Wednesday Live are not strangers to you, our listeners and readers. Some of you even responded to the ICFF ticket give-away, and took advantage of attending the International Christian Film Festival from May 2-4. The ICFF is a yearly event that brings together Film Artists, Producers, Writers, Editors, Actors… every faction of the Christian Film (and now Music) venue. New Christian Films are showcased, awards given out for Best…, and many other factions of the Christian Film industry.

But the most important part that was emphasized by both Marty and Kim, is the Prayer Room, where Intercessors and participants, day and night come to the Prayer Room to pray. It is here that God moves in the Christian Film industry.

Kim stated that being a participant, or a spectator of the International Christian Film Festival is not just the Movies, but the People! God’s people all being there together.

Marty says, We want people’s lives to be changed. We want people to get closer to Christ.

Both Kim and Marty agree, Pastors need to become more involved in Christian Film, promoting wholesome film to their congregations. The unsaved will go to a movie with a friend, where perhaps they would not go to a church with them.

Kim invites Pastors to Pre-Screen Christian movies – 2 free tickets are yours for the asking, and encourages you to take advantage of these free showings. Bulletin Inserts are even for Pastors to help spread the word to their congregations.

Marty thanks WCNO for “supporting what we are doing”. He says, “Thank God for you and the entire WCNO family.

Kim says, “The Prayer Room!” This is the place to meet. Kim would love to see the next generation of young film makers and actors meet the people who can help them meet their dream.

Next year’s International Christian Film Festival will be April 30-May 3. Perhaps you will make your plans early to attend!

WEDNESDAY LIVE – MAY 8, 2024

“Will you be angry with us always? Will you prolong your wrath to all generations? Won’t you revive us again, so your people can rejoice in you? Show us your unfailing love, O Lord, and grant us your salvation.” (Psalm 85:5-7 NLT)

There is REVIVAL about to burst forth on the Treasure Coast of Florida. The signs are evident.

Joining us today on Wednesday Live, Chris Fogal, Executive Director of Treasure Coast Christian Alliance spoke of the importance of the Body of Christ coming together for Prayer and to Worship together. Last Thursday, May 2nd,Treasure Coast Christian Alliance, sponsored a gathering for our 7 Annual NATIONAL DAY OF PRAYER. Nearly 1,000 people showed up to Praise and Pray over our nation and our local area. Worship and Praise was led by Luke and the Highpoint Worship Team. Immediately following, Prayers were led by local leaders. Pastors, Business Leaders, and Government Leaders proclaimed and declared God’s will over us here and throughout America. It was absolutely powerful! And if this wasn’t enough, our Guest Speaker, Rabbi Jonathan Cahn followed up with a prophetic message of our current state of affairs and of HOPE! The evening was filled with the presence of God. Jonathan Cahn’s sharing was the fuse that was lit for revival.

Treasure Coast Christian Alliance Board of Directors is 8 Pastors from Martin & St Lucie Counties. Their main purpose is to bring Pastors together with Business & Civic Leaders to promote unity among the Body of Christ.

All events sponsored by Treasure Coast Christian Alliance are held in public venues. This is important as to not give favor to any one church or individual.

Note the next 2 upcoming events! *Thursday evening, September 26 we will bring you the 4th Annual Treasure Coast Day of Prayer at the Havert L Fenn Center in Fort Pierce. This gathering is “I WILL STAND WITH ISRAEL”. Our Guest for this event is Paul Wilbur. Tickets will be available soon. *-Sunday, December 1 is the 8th Annual Christmas Proclamation Supper. Our guest speaker is Kelvin Cochran, appointed by President Obama as Deputy Fire Chief of the United States of America. Later, the mayor of Atlanta fired him because of his Christian faith and his stand on LGBTQ. This will be a powerful evening.

Treasure Coast Christian Alliance is Breaking New Ground. The church is not a building. It is the Ecclesia. And together we have the unity of Christ.

If you missed being part of the National Day of Prayer with us last week, the video will be on our Website: https://tccalliance.com. You will also be able to see Upcoming Events. Please feel free to use our Contact Page if you want more information, or call 772-324-9313

Also joining us today, John Nelson, founder of Families Recover. John started out as an advocate for Drunk Driving. Then, drug overdoses became a big issue – so Families Recover was born. John stated that doctors use drugs to get you off drugs. But in reality, you are just substituting one drug for another. He also stated that Christian recovery programs have about the same success rate as the secular programs.

What the devil says is, come in, I will give you comfort. John says, the only way to recovery is Jesus. But there is some work involved on your part. Be responsible, seek God.

If you or a family member need help, contact John at FamiliesRecover.org or call him at 772-285-5828
