IMAGE Giving Grace
Friday, 24 April 2015 - Matt Kelley

  Something I’ve been learning a lot about recently is the concept of giving grace.  I know for me it can be easy to get annoyed with a teammate or someone and let it ruin my day.  Holding a grudge usually tends to be completely unsatisfying; however it can be so difficult to just give grace and forgive.   I’ve been reading Mark recently as part of my personal devotions, and just yesterday I reached the point where Jesus...

Tuesday, 21 April 2015 - Lena Kvigne

Hi, everyone! We have  been having a great time on the start of our tour. I was blessed to have my team experience a piece of my home life. The team was able to spend a couple days on my home farm in Southwest Wisconsin, where one of my teammates puts it, we have "dairy air".  They were able to see that some "dairy air" actually smells pretty good. Other than smelling the farm fresh air, my dad let my teammates help with chores,...

Tuesday, 21 April 2015 - Kirsten Kennedy

Greetings from the Pacific Northwest!!We've officially made our way back to the States from Alberta, Canada. I must say, this trip was a little bittersweet, given that it marks our last time in Canada as a team. But we went out with a bang! From driving across the entire province of Saskatchewan, to spending time in Calgary with alumni and new contacts, the past couple days have been really heartwarming. We made memories that I believe will last...

Abide
Friday, 17 April 2015 - CTI 14:22

All I can say right now is that I can't believe I'm through the first week of Spring Tour. It's been a whirlwind so far. The places we've been and the people we have seen bring about a sense of awe as we encounter unique ministry opportunities everyday.  The one thing that I find myself in is the desperate state of abiding. It seems to be a theme in our verbals and definitely in my heart. It will all seem weary, the work and the ministry we do...

Tuesday, 14 April 2015 - CTI 14:21

Hey all! We are back out on the road for our last tour together as a team!   I find it hard to believe that's true, but it is! This tour will be special for a lot of reasons. For a few of us, this is an opportunity to play concerts in our hometowns and share about the ways we have experienced God at work.   Stay tuned for updates as we make this last journey together! Pray for us as we go from city to city to share the Gospel message...

IMAGE A True Follower of Christ
Tuesday, 14 April 2015 - Joey Nutting

As I look back on this year of ministry with CTI, God has been completely wrecking my mindset of what ministry looks like. I’m learning this year that ministry is not only done on stage or in a leadership position at a church. Ministry is done with people anywhere. People everywhere need Jesus. I’ve also seen God change my mindset of what it looks like to surrender daily and live out Christ’s example of humility in Philippians 2. As I...

Saturday, 11 April 2015 - CTI 14:22

Hey Everyone!     I can’t believe it’s already spring tour! This is our last tour as a team, and we’ll be all over the Midwest, and the west coast over the next five weeks. It’s incredible to be back on the road after getting to take time to rest and reflect on our winter tour.   For me, something that the Lord really was showing me over winter tour was that God will not be silenced, but He is faithful to do His work and use us to...

We've received over $6,300 towards our speaker replacement project so far, which is enough to complete the first phase of the project!With these funds, we've purchased 2 subwoofers and 4 main speakers.  Each of our fulltime teams will begin using 2 of the new mains and 1 subwoofer starting with their upcoming Spring tour.  Audiences can look forward to a much gentler / less "harsh" sound, broader frequency spectrum, and lower visual...

Tuesday, 24 March 2015 - Patty Lin

It's been a joy to tour the last few months and meet so many people with whom we've had the opportunity to fellowship!As we each head our separate ways for a season of rest and rejuvenation, our most popular question will certainly be "how was Winter Tour?"It can be overwhelming to convey all we've experienced with people who weren't with us each step of the way, so at our last team meeting we worked through a few initial processing...

Monday, 23 March 2015 - Holly Hassman

As we near the end of Winter Tour, I’ve been thinking back on all that has happened in the past 10 weeks. It’s overwhelming to try to process all the experiences we’ve had and the things God has been teaching me through them all.   I’m looking forward to break in hopes of having some time to seclude myself and do some writing/processing in an attempt to make sense of it all. It’s tempting to want to spend all of my Easter break...

Friday, 20 March 2015 - Matt Kelley

Hey everyone!We are down to our last few days of winter tour.  It has been a fantastic tour, but looking back, I noticed that there were a few times when I felt that tour was getting quite monotonous.  I remember thinking, “Oh, I’ve been in similar situations as this.  I’ve been there and done that.  I don’t have to try as hard.”This, my friends, is what our team calls “coasting.”  It’s not necessarily...

The End of Ourselves
Thursday, 19 March 2015 - Keilah Quimby

This past Monday marked the beginning of our final week of tour, and a part of me simply can’t believe it. It feels like just yesterday that we all arrived at the ministry as full-timers, ready for training, but maybe not completely ready to brave the road and tour life. Yet here we are, on the final leg of our longest tour; the adventures we’ve had are countless, and along the way I’ve learned an incredible amount of things about my...

Responding to a Heavy Reality
Monday, 16 March 2015 - Hannah Olson

Today we had a team devo that I was pretty convicted by. I was overwhelmed by the relevance it had in this last week of touring arriving. I'm tired and pretty exhausted. I was praying that the Lord would send me some restoration and it seemed to come in the form of conviction. We talked through Proverbs 29 and I want to share the pieces that struck me.   Proverbs 29:25 "The fear of human opinion disables; trusting in God protects you from...
