It’s 3:00am in Kathmandu, Nepal. Jet lag has forced me awake. I’ve been here for less than 24 hours and already I’m trying to process everything I’ve seen. First, a bit of background. My good friends Adam, Mark, and Dathan and I are visiting some Nepalese pastor-friends and seeing the...
Jenn is an Eternity grad who has served in the Middle East and is currently doing ministry with her family in Poland. Due to the nature of their work overseas, certain details have been withheld. Nearly 15 years ago my life was dramatically transformed by Christ and nothing has...
We want God to do the spectacular through us and around us. Of course we do. I can remember times when I've read Acts and then prayed that God would shake our little prayer meeting room, just as he shook the room the disciples were praying in. We read about...
The same thing happens every week: My wife turns on The Biggest Loser, I pretend that I’m not going to watch it, then I sit spellbound for the entire two-hour broadcast. You wouldn’t think it would be fun to watch people work out for two hours, but somehow it...

I never wanted to leave California. I definitely never saw myself living in the South. And yet, here I am in South Carolina, serving as a Youth Pastor in the small town of Greenwood. I spent most of my life in Long Beach before moving to Simi Valley to take...

Josh Mcarthur and his wife Allison are former Eternity Students who now serve in Costa Rica with 6:8 Ministries When I was 18, God shook my world and exposed the hypocrisy and self-righteousness that had marked my life. I grew up in a Christian home, had amazing parents who served...
