SORT BY Relevancy
Perhaps one of the most powerful institutions in maintaining character quality and solid structure in society is the church. No matter what faith is practiced, religion serves as the buffer between one's conscience and one's actions. No matter your transgression in life, a religious leader was available to talk, pray and offer hope. Many people feel that modern day churches are more commercialized and scorning. Are church leaders losing their spiritual regality in the eyes of society and becoming a part of the community breakdown?
Four Indiana Church Music Legends; Reverend Marvin Chandler, Tim Bratton, Sylvia Davis and Napoleon Williams Join the discussion of the influence and the importance of music in the church. Should it be just in the form of a ministry or viewed as a part of the regular Worship service.
This week, Dr. Elvira will be speaking with Dr. Issakha Diallo, M.D., Associate Director for Health at the Performance Group, about what health leaders in Africa need in terms of support and how to be more effective.

His current university role is as the director of the MPH program. This opportunity comes after nearly 23 years as the campus physician and is the culmination of a life-long vision to train others to serve Christ in the field of public health. During his time at Liberty, he has engaged in a number of missions related endeavors that have taken him to over fifty nations around the world. Dr. Lane currently serves as the Lead Medical Trainer for the CrossRoads Global Team with Cru (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ); an executive board member of Freedom 4/24, a ministry against sex trafficking; and as a medical consultant for World Help, a locally based Christian relief and humanitarian organization.

Dr. Lane is currently working to create an online health training certificate through Liberty University Online using a bilingual Spanish/English format to provide educational opportunities for Hispanic youth wishing an affordable option for continuing education at the college level.
Life hands out things that are a lot different than we expect quite often. To have our feet firmly planted in the gospel of Jesus Christ can give us the support we need when our world starts to turn upside down.
