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!

Let's Go!

"Let's go!"  With that closing challenge from Al Sanders to each of us at Ambassador in today's staff devotions, we were treated from Jude with the words of Michael the Archangel!  In this stimulating study (to say the least!)-we were reminded dramatically of what happened when Lot's wife decided to "turn around-to look back."

As I watched and listened and wrote some personal notes to myself from today's study-I also observed Al's message as an incredible tutorial in presentation:

  • he began and ended on time
  • he was thoroughly prepared
  • he used illustrations, stories, humor ...

With over 94% of Americans being reached via radio on a weekly basis, programmers internationally are searching for reliable and cost-effective methods to use air-waves to reach local communities. For many, the lack of satellite availability has been a hindrance. But with the latest advances from Amb-OS Media, that obstacle will be a thing of the past.

"The AMR-100 will be able to be deployed anywhere in the world that has Internet access.  For many months now, we've been successfully beta testing this next phase of the AMR-100 software development," said Jim Sanders, president of Amb-OS Media.

Challenging the Norm in Charitable Giving!

Sharing in common has gotten a bad rep-as the image of a 60's type hippie commune makes its way into our consciousness!  It can be off putting to a generation who remember the peace sign, the "luv" and the drugs!

But sharing is a concept worth considering as a fund raising paradigm.

As fund raisers we emphasize "giving."  And well we should.  It's a biblical emphasis-a promised blessing when we give.

But there's certainly as much emphasis on "sharing."  Paul described the early church in Acts 2:44 as "believers together who had everything in common. . .together ...

Our New Look

Yesterday, we buried an old friend.

We came to call him "Michelin Man", though that certainly didn't sit well withthe original designer.  Our beloved logo '(which received its name because of its similarities to the tire brand logo) served us well for nearly 20 years. It fittingly represented both the "A" in Ambassador as well as radiating waves from a broadcast tower. At the time, it was a huge step up from our previous mark which was also called the "A-ball" (.  (Yikes - I ...

Of all the courses you've played, what one would be your favorite ... ever hit a hole in one??

 

Check out Update for what others have said.

**************************************************************************

I would have to say St. Andrews in Scotland.  Also right down the road from St. Andrews there's a more modern course, but one of the most incredible in the world-it's called Kingsbarns.  It was built in the place where the king used to keep his horses.

And when it comes to the United States, it's awfully hard to beat Pebble Beach.  Coming close behind that would be a wonderful set of courses in Oregon called Bandon Dunes.

Have I ever had a hole-in-one?  Yes, a couple.  Most recently ...
