News & Insights

With 50 years of experience, we "get" that things are always changing! That's why we've dedicated a section of our website to provide the very latest information about the speakers and ministries we serve--and about us, too. Come take a look at "what's new"--or use the sidebar options to take a deeper look at areas of particular interest. In case you wonder what we think, we've dedicated a space for commentary (including guest posts). And take a look at who's been to Ambassador lately in our own version of the Greenroom!

Grace to You® Visits Ambassador

Having made a trip to So Cal last week to see my family, I was able to spend time at the Ambassador office, too.  For a few days, I had my old life back--commuting to and from Irvine, talking with Peg and the team in person, eating fresh donuts brought in by Jim :-), and enjoying all the other benefits of working in an office with my co-workers (and friends). 

GTY Team with Michelle BloodAnother benefit (and highlight) of my time in Irvine was participating in a meeting with our Grace to You® friends, Jay Flowers and his assistant, Amanda Thompson. The meeting was both ...

Worth a Second Look

Once a month I clean out my "Sent" and "Deleted" files in Outlook.  Do you ever take a second look at old emails?  Back and forths you had forgotten about, agendas of meetings long gone?  I like when I rediscover a really good story or a link to a video -- I'm reminded of the first time I got it and am glad to renew the encounter. 

Such was the case when I ran across this video from Pete Briscoe (speaker for "Telling the Truth").  Pete says, "I Am Second..." and thus encourages us all to look to Who is ...

Help!

BEHOLD!  The empty producer's chair.  There are some who like to sit in it, and others who dread the thought.  I like it, at least this one (since I know where all the buttons are). Tomorrow, I'm going to be sitting in that chair and recording Charles Morris interviewing Max Lucado.  I'm excited. They are both great men of God who are "all about Jesus."  Max just released his new book.

That said, I thought I might let you participate in the recording session in a unique way.  Do you have any questions for Max, particularly ...

What Do You Think About Stay-at-home Dads?

That was Dennis Rainey's tweet back in May when prepping for the 2-day broadcast airing this month on "FamilyLife Today."  

What prompted the question is an observation Dennis has been making about the increasing number of stay-at-home dads.  He believes "there is a shift going on in the culture ... a rejection in many places of what is normative in Scripture."  

To give some context to this subject, here's some statistics the Washington Post reported just two years ago: 

". . .an estimated 159,000 stay-at-home dads, or 2.7 percent of the country's stay-at-home parents (almost triple the percentage ...

1,050 Radios Strong

1,050 Cambodian families who hadn't been able to hear local Christian broadcasts will soon hold their very own SonSet® radio from HCJB Global.

How did this happen?  You take one radio station (KPOF/Denver, CO), listener pledges ($35 buys one radio) and a ministry (HCJB Global) committed to reach those in remote places of the world with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Ron Cline and GM Jack Pelon

Above, Ron Cline ("Beyond the Call") talks to KPOF's GM Jack Pelon about HCJB Global's Turn the Radios On project.  Since 2001 over 27,000 SonSet® radios have been sent all over the world ...
