Thomas from the masculine journey podcast where we discover what it means to be a wholehearted man your chosen Truth Network podcast starting in just seconds. Enjoy share it, but most of all, thank you for listening and for choosing The Truth Podcast Network. This is the Truth Network is man up today my pastor Jay Stewart joins us today on the man up show Jay welcome back to the man up show you an incredible honor to be back. I don't like it never won't be back to Amanda Clark like the backbone beer with you again really have a lot of thank you so much.

Well it's is just a privilege to have you on the show. If I have to kind of chuckle you know that you say that it I've preached over 1200 churches big. I think about 1195 of never asked me back on what well maybe not out of Mattie by what I am. I do have quite a number that have invited me back to way more than one time but I think I come in so so heavy-handed and some of like that. I guy we have a knack. I get my one shot at it, Jay.

I got my one shot dropped the hammer one to drop the hammer will what was that all express, you are an evangelist or prior to becoming the lead pastor. What was the expression the evangelists blow CM blows up in the blows out of town is something like that. Blow out the part about the pastor there to mop up all all all of the good good good tears and bloodshed therefrom from about words and going about the exact going out of your pastor, author listed at don't let that discourage you from bringing me, and as an evangelist. By all means all that simply means is that I just I speak the truth of God's word.

I don't mince words and and sometimes it is a hard word do my best and in the jail, you might verify this and do my best not to be one of those of what the Bible talks about that you know to clean the ears of the listeners so worn about one of the many things that always loved about you that you are courageous and bold, never afraid to speak the truth and honestly the Bible for the truth that will fit people free and are really collective.

The pastor and I think you feel the same way I do people at the service. If I don't go on the trip yes and so that's one of the greatest thing we can do even though sometimes it's hard to swallow, just to speak the truth and I love that about you and your unapologetic and you never compromise the water got so thank you for that and I appreciate that a rib really doing and I'm reminded of another guess saying this is the truth to set you free. With the sometimes the truth hurts right I mean hurt that you hurt sometimes it really does mean when you got to go to another brother or or or somebody ago to assist her in and in the Lord and you know sometimes they'll call the call amount. Iron sharpens iron right Proverbs 2717. Maybe after you have somebody audit me and made somebody's feelings make it hurt her but but if it's absolute truth like like you and I are talking about that then. Ultimately, the potential is there to set them free. Right from whatever whatever sin they may find himself in whatever bondage they may find himself in a key consent. I then down or this morning all reminded the church of Ephesus, when he said you have to speak the truth and love to one another yes and he talked about how it careened the individual it shrink the bodyguards but the key is in a lot, speak the truth in love right a lot of people are great because of a true, but there is no load factor yes truth spoken without love parties. The heart and man of God spoken without true just becomes a license to compromise so we have to have both. Man that you just took them. He took the words on mama that I was to say hey the last thing you want to tag on Is are those keywords in love, speaking the truth. Love Jeff great insight. Now you pastor down William Criswell relation goes back 20+ years back to 1993 when when I surrender my life to to to the Lord, October 1993 and and we develop this friendship.

This relationship of this bond. Ever since that that time and in the course you're pastoring the refuge church there in Kannapolis, North Carolina. Your campuses in Salisbury, North Carolina, Greensboro, North Carolina, and it ended just a thriving church there. You campuses in in down in South America and over in Africa as well. Yeah over the years that the refuge is really grown in an expanded and healthy and thriving in it because it because Jay and I think just want to say for the record you because you in in in in a loving way you from the platform Sunday after Sunday after Sunday also speak the truth without compromising and I think many many many people appreciate that even though some people might get offended or get their feelings hurt you, yourself a which I think is what's made our relationship. So it was so great is is you take. That's the same approach shows so appreciate it while you for the last time less than we had you on.

We had you and it actually 001 of the other pass pastor, Pastor Derek Hawkins. We had you got John and we highlighted. We talked about of the book that you guys wrote together a release together and in a timely manner in God's perfect timing about about unity and it and just give us a list is a quick a quick update on on the block and don't tell me about a man be glad to Nikita it still been almost 2 years. Not quite two years ago when the book was released November 2020" Caldwell did in the subtitle is performing racial bodies that last and although we all know we've made a lot of progress in America when it comes to racial unity. We still have a ways to go.

And God has really briefed on the welded and used it in so many ways. In some ways that we never even saw coming, but were so grateful for the message of the book and then the way God using it.

There's a small group curriculum that we talk about the last time that we were on the air with you that is carried by right now media that was six session BBD curriculum that goes through the book and so that's been a real blessing. I think the last time we talked as well on the air at that time there were 2000 copies of the book welded in every single person in South Carolina 2000 copies of every person in Tennessee 2000 copies in the 50 largest prison in Florida, and man am thrilled to report that as of today there are 2000 copies in every single prison in the state of North Carolina as well and that that was the thing we never saw coming. I mean a lot of churches have really benefited from the book. A lot of individuals constantly get Greg report contract I'm holding in my hand a letter right now that came to me from an inmate in a Florida in the second letter that he written to me.

The first letter he had written.

He got a copy of the book he read the book, he was greatly impacted by the message in the pages of welded any wrote me a letter and he asked me if I would consider mentoring him and training him for ministry prison and he knows Wally Claire. He feels like he can minister to guys and then when he gets out he wants to be in full-time ministry and followed him back to that I man I don't how that would work, but I'm totally open to and if we can find a way to make it happen. Let's do it. So he's with me again and tell that that's been a real blessing. I just got a testimony this morning from someone in our church who work just you know out in corporate America secular job and a guy in her company. Saul whatever shirt she had all met with something about prayer and he approached her. Anyway, long story short, she ended up giving him a copy of the book welded that she found out just a couple weeks ago. He read the entire book in one day, he was greatly impacted by he was out of church mail. He wants to come and maybe even show up this Sunday at the refuge because he was so impacted by the message of the book so men were grateful God continues to use it and I believe and we talk about this in the book that unity is is an absolute prerequisite for revival and I believe there's a great revival come to America and I believe a key part of that is that we get this racial unity thing figured out well and I for one those are some great stories and not surprise one of many that should have come in and many that will continue to, I myself read the book on on on a plane trip. Forget where I was going to but it and certainly in in reading it there for those you listing out there. This is striking a chord with you there someone you know that that would benefit from. From reading the book welded angle or yourself of, or several, that you may know that to to get a copy of this book is very insightful. Pastor Derek and if you have a silica guide is what like mid 50 a white guy in his mid-50s in a black eye in his mid-30s right that the God brings together right in my correct on after two to give a vision for that for this book and then the impact in the inroads that it's making on on bridging the communication went right, and in one of things I learned about was how it it it can help prompt you and/or give you some some insight on how to initiate conversations with people of another color that I write my four key messages throughout the book you listen, it will get dark somewhere analog to grant such a fear of like I don't know where to start and I don't know what I am afraid out the longplaying right of the book really equipment people to just start having those conversations that we could offer that we dreaded having and I think a lot of people have been very comprised as I waded into the water. They been very surprised at what it happened in the relationship letter been formed. The healing that is gone. The work that got done in their hearts and the hearts of other people is a beautiful thing then and I I'm just blown away, humbled and blessed that I have the privilege of you know the heart of God on the pages and now it's documentation well and it is skinny. I believe continue to grow and expand even even beyond the borders of America and I just feel the Lord Lord knows we need resources like this, like, like that of the book and and the the.

Though this the study guide you call us what you call it our study guide, but Margaret curriculum.

Yes, all small group curriculum to get those that initiate those those conversations and then building those those relationships and so I'm just thrilled about that the current success in a course, the prisons, you know, getting it in the in our house and as a kid has to grow and expand it on now is if somebody is there a website or Amazon or hot like if you want to find the book welded where where might they go.

So Amazon is easier to get the book and you can get it in Kindle format. You can buy a hard copy about paperback copy or you can get the audio AVAILABLE on Amazon or you can go to welded and there's even more information about the book on that website and been right now media right now our GHD now media is where you can get all group curriculum possible well and I encourage all of you out there you know this is a benefit so many in so many ways and and and there's actually one other opportunity will help somebody to get their hands on the like all like almost like immediately as well, and that is at a conference that working or you can have a vendor table there. The refuge can have a vendor table at the man up conference in Fort Mill, South Carolina August 25 two to the 27th and things you may or may not know J is this not only can they get copy there at at the conference in it and perhaps so hopefully meet you Pastor Derek some the other staff there from the refuge is all part of our theme for their for the mentor conference in the ward, the Lord dropped in my spirit as the where is the word unity you're listening to the Truth Network and If you would like to support Cola for Christ ministries.

You're listening to the Truth Network and will cadre the cadre that I'm doing is three days of impartation and encouragement and introduction anybody who is in ministry that I have to be a senior pastor lead pastor can be male or female can be used pastor's children's pastor and worship leader yeah yeah yeah anybody in ministry of really making it just as a stamp from just a growing desire of the last several years the poor and other pastors about have the opportunity to coach a lot of pastors poor in the church planter did that for number of years and then got put all my heart because I what I was I was doing it more locally and regionally and then I have lot of guys from around the country that were asking if they could be a part of it and that's when I decided to do it in a three day format so it Tuesday Wednesday Thursday so those that are in ministry don't have to mess with Sunday that comply analysts on Monday and I can plot our cattle Thursday evening and we just just a few months away from turning 60, and so I have almost 4 decades of full-time ministry. And and I've just taken what I feel like in the times in which we are living in the second Chronicles will come to visit guard who understood the time and they knew what to do and Carmichael.

The times that were living in are so unique and so challenging to ministers in town talk to Ray to God what is one of the things that we need the most. What can I impart to others that would help them to understand at times, but also give them some practical ways to walk it out so I have other people that come in and help me delete some of the questions people like Brooks and I both feel Sgt. Jason does a special marriage in ministry. David of the session on navigating cultural war.

Both of those sessions are hands-down. Some of the greatest information I've ever heard my life.

One of my executive pastors on staff of the female Majeed of the sessional women in ministry again. One of the greatest session.ever heard one the greatest teachings I've ever heard on women in ministry pastor Derek Hawkins that co-authored the book welded with me a session on racial reconciliation pastor Nathan Smith both professional and developing a leadership pipeline and volunteers within the church and members of the things that are poor into the leaders. It's a great family doing a granite top golf we feed you we pour into you weekend the entire thing by having our staff and other leaders lay hands on every person in attendance and pray over them and send you out with encouragement and with prayer.

I would go for anybody here in ministry, you know someone in ministry.

Please give him the information and get him registered might even offer to pay the registration and get them here. I believe it will be such an encouragement to them yet to be a great great investment in the end someone you know and in ministry and maybe as a pastor.

The just couldn't Say this I couldn't afford elect, but I like in cancer stuff we do men just know that I love to come to camp I can afford it, but that they love to come to this cadre there like that.

So it's like J where where would they so this is Pekin somebody's interest out today where would they go to register and/or get more information on the pastors cadre all of the information is available on the refuge website correctly would go to the refuge.the and panel one of the cabins they obligate on the events tab will find all the information in the registration and the details and the cost for the cadre is October 8, 2019 and 20, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and I would love I would love for people to come and if I have questions. I can certainly reach out to the refuge and get more information if they need okay and let me ask this for almost out of time.

But let me ask you this, so if if, as were talking so couple questions if if a pastor says I really to go to the insert on the registration site is there place on there for them to say hey I could use some financial assistance or something of that nature and/or belong there and designate donating designate specifically to the cadre so yeah." I don't know if there's a place on the registration form for them to indicate that they might need help. All they would have to do would be to shoot us an email and just I want to come but I need some help in the system and covering the registration I've Artie had people approach me from within our congregation and play will sponsor pastors that want to come but I can afford it, and so email us to reach out to us and then if there's others that want to donate to the same thing and email it straight.
