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!

"Why, Lord?"

It’s hard not to ask, “Why, Lord?” in the aftermath of the horrific tragedy in Haiti.Haiti Picture


While this side of heaven, we may never know the answer to this question, it really doesn’t matter.  God is in control.  He does have a perfect plan for each of us, even in the midst of heartache and disaster.


As I watched the news broadcasts of the earthquake, I was so touched that despite all the devastation, there were many arms upraised to God, thanking Him for saving them, begging Him to save their loved ones.  They sought God.

Mercy's On Its Way!

Don StephensI felt my heart drop when I heard about the earthquake and all the devastation in Haiti.  As the days went by, I was blown away by the death counts, and prayed that God would first and foremost be a place of hope for these people.  I am thankful for those who sacrificially drop everything going on in their lives to help those in need.  Mercy Ships®, one of the first responders, sent doctors, nurses and other experienced medical experts to provide emergency surgery in this crisis.  With more than 1,000 people who have connected with Mercy Ships®, they ...

What is the Church?

Max LucadoCommunity is a hot topic in our culture today. What is it? How do you get it? Christians have some great answers for these questions! Frankly, the best place to find community should be in Church.

The Church is more than a group of people gathering to sing songs and read from an old historical book! Max Lucado extrapolates God's design in establishing the church. It's firmly built on the foundation of a resurrected Jesus.

God's desire is to bring all people back into right relationship with Him and with fellow believers in perfect community.

Telling the Truth -- LIVE!

Briscoes Live Event

Sitting on my couch.  That's where I was last Friday evening when I was entertained, encouraged and energized by the ministry of Telling the Truth.  All I needed was a laptop to enjoy a live stream of the annual "Evening with the Briscoe's" in Milwaukee, WI.

While not live -- you can take part in what the evening held for the 3,000 in attendance (and many, many more online!), on Telling the Truth's website.  May I recommend the couch?

Be sure to visit the website where you can watch the Briscoes share from their hearts in their ...

iPhone the "older brother?" Oh brother!

iPhoneWith the coming of the new iPad-Apple has essentially made the iPhone, as one blogger put it-the "older brother."

Of all people at Ambassador, I'm the least likely to be talking about this new phenom in technology.  But I find myself like a kid waiting for my birthday--which, by the way, isn't that far off either!

The iPhone has literally changed my technical life--and to a great extent, my personal life.  How I connect with my friends; how I manage emails, and Facebook.  Instead of swapping recipes (which I've never done!)--it's "what's your favorite ...
