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!

Living the Christian life isn't easy.  In fact, it's an impossible battle-at least without some powerful defensive and offensive help.  Thankfully, God knows what your listeners are facing, knows what they need, and He has designed the perfect protective gear, exclusively for His children.

So what is the armor God has given believers that will help them face battles of temptation, doubt, and discouragement?

But, would you call text messaging life-changing or life-saving? 

A pastor ministering in Papua New Guinea with a radio show would!  Joe says the response to his youth program via text messaging is staggering.  He receives more than 16,000 text messages each month!  More than half of the messages come from people inquiring about a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.  About 20 percent of the messages come in after midnight from students who are dealing ...
