Challis Bower and her husband Jeff have had the privilege of serving in full-time ministry for 20 years. These ministry years have taken them all over the country and even overseas! They are the parents of four awesome kids and recently took in their nephew, making a total of 5 teenagers in the home! [prayers welcomed] Challis has a passion to see women knowing, glorifying and enjoying the God of the Bible! Her heart is to encourage women with the truths of God’s Word and to exhort them to grow deeper in the grace and the knowledge of our Lord Jesus. She whole-heartedly believes the more we know Him, the more we love Him! Challis’ teaching style is honest and vulnerable, relatable and humorous, and most importantly centered on the Good News of Jesus Christ found in His Word!
This weekend’s topic
Tethered to Heaven
God’s Word is full of truths about our being seated and having citizenship in Heaven. We are told we’ve been given all the riches and spiritual blessings in Christ, and are reminded that we’ve been given all that pertains to life and godliness. This life is to be abundant! We rehearse the things God has said of us– that we are loved and forgiven and free! Yet we still find ourselves so often feeling like failures and unlovable; living with fear and anxiety; and lacking all the comfort, joy and peace these truths should bring. How can this be? We will spend our weekend together looking into God’s Word to find the reasons our hearts and minds get disconnected from all that God has declared to be true! And by His grace, we’ll identify steps we can take to run our race here on this earth, fully aware that we are forever “Tethered to Heaven!”
