What is Groundwire?
Groundwire offers you the opportunity to leverage the world's technology to connect thousands of un-churched young people with the Gospel of Jesus.
By placing thirty and sixty-second Christ-centered spots on aggressive and influential secular radio stations, you can shine light in the midst of darkness, speak hope to the hopeless, and truth to those drowning in lies. Additionally, placing targeted commercials on top tv stations like MTV, VH1, Cartoon Network (Adult Swim), BET, TruTV, ESPN, Comedy and Nick at Night is another place to share a message of hope to those seeking.
The message is impossible to ignore. In the middle of the media streams that are cultivating hopelessness, despair, anger, and lust comes a message of hope and encouragement. And, by providing a response portal on the Internet, you can meet those touched by Christ in these spots in their moment of need.
Prodigals, pre-Christians, and struggling Christians who are fighting lonely and losing battles are being constantly reminded that God is waiting to embrace them, heal their wounds and answer their questions.
Groundwire was initially launched as an outreach program of Champion Ministries, est. 1995, and has quickly become the face of the ministry. The radio spots, which began airplay in August 2003, were an effort to keep Christ in the culture. From the beginning on 2 secular stations in Denver, CO and Spokane, WA, this creative and effective tool to share the Love, Word, and purpose of Christ has grown and is currently heard on over 1,300 stations (both secular and Christian). The TV commercials were launched in 2009 and continue to be aired nationally as well as in individual markets. Through the radio and TV broadcast messages over 28,000,000 monthly are hearing a message of hope and encouragement. In addition, hundreds of volunteers offer live coaching 24 hours a day at www.groundwire.net, which is averaging over 233,000 visits a month.
Champion Ministries dba Groundwire is a fully recognized 501 (c)3 tax-exempt organization. If you have any questions you can contact us by phone at 303-660-3582, by email, or by mail at P.O. Box 1323 Castle Rock, CO 80104.
The voice of Groundwire is the founder of Champion Ministries, Sean Dunn. Sean is a gifted and anointed communicator who partners with religious organizations to assist them with camps, conferences, retreats, youth weekends, spiritual emphasis weeks, chapel services, missions training, outreaches, youth ministry, training and consulting, radio programs, television ministry, outreaches and crusades. Interested in having Sean speak at your event?
If you would like to get baptized in water, please sign up in the foyer!
When you do, please remember to also give us your phone number and indicate who you would like to baptize you... Pastor Steve or Pastor Chris. We will contact you closer to the July 27th date and remind you of everything you will need to bring.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to call the office at 994-3122. We can go over everything with you and answer any questions you may have.
Then, once you have become baptized, acknowledging your acceptance of Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior, then you can become an official member of the church! That class is scheduled for August 16th.
We are excited for everyone who has received the Lord and wants to take the next step and get baptized! Let's see if we can continue our trend and baptize more people then we did last time!
We hope to see your name on that list and may God continue to bless you!
Deuteronomy 13:1-3, "...God is testing you to find out if you love the Lord..."
by Matt Slick
"If a prophet or a dreamer of dreams arises among you and gives you a sign or a wonder, 2and the sign or the wonder comes true, concerning which he spoke to you, saying, ‘Let us go after other gods (whom you have not known) and let us serve them,’ 3you shall not listen to the words of that prophet or that dreamer of dreams; for the Lord your God is testing you to find out if you love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul," (Deut. 13:1-3).
This is an example of a testing situation. God routinely tests people--not so that God will learn what they will actually do, because God knows all things (1 John 3:20). Instead, it is for the strengthening and purification of the faith of God's people so they might learn and grow through the test. Furthermore, God speaks to them in discovery terms so that they might hear and know that God "now will use them" according to His purpose. Testing verses are also related to God's anthropomorphic expression where God speaks in human terms in human ways as He reveals Himself to and through people.
If we were to look at this from the perspective of open theism, we have a problem. Open theism teaches that God knows all things in the present, exhaustively. Deut. 13:1-3 tells how God can test people to find out if they love the Lord with all their heart. But if God knows all things in the present, then didn't He know if the people loved Him or not? Of course He did. So, this is a problem for their position.
Instead, God is testing the people so they will know what is in their own hearts.
