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!

Believing in Absolute Truth

Jim Garlow, speaker for "The Garlow Perspective," is a Pastor and strong advocate for religious liberty.  I thought that Jim's perspective was expressed well on this program that originally aired on October 16th--hear what he said:

The fact is . . . no nation can exist without a fundamental belief in absolute truth! It's absolutely imperative that we believe in absolute truth--biblical truth.

Judges 17:6 says: "Every man did that which was right in his own eyes." . . . referring to the behavioral and moral fiber of the people being addressed.

It's the same "non-belief" in absolute truth that ...

Be Careful What You Pray For

IF YOU REALLY KNEW ME

Have you ever prayed for humility and then completely regretted it once the Lord actually began to answer that prayer?

It's almost humorous how in every season of life I pray for an increase in this area, but when it's time for me to choose to "bow low" it's as if a spotlight shines directly onto my stubbornness. 

Have you ever played the game "If you really knew me?"  All you do is fill in the blank to the phrase, "If you really knew me, you would know ____."  The point is ...

Who Determines Right and Wrong?

It's always a treat when one of our ministry partners comes to town and we have the opportunity to see them speak in person.  Even better is when they come to speak at your own church!  This was the case for me last weekend when BreakPoint® host and friend John Stonestreet served as our guest speaker at Saddleback Church this past weekend.

John was asked to be part of an apologetics lecture series tackling the "Great Questions of Life," addressing areas of origin, purpose, death, and authority.  In John's message, he noted why these great questions really matter ...

What Your Listeners Get on Janet Mefferd Today

Monday is here.  A new week, a refreshed vision for life and work.  The morning sped by and the lunch crowd is gathering in the kitchen.  Approaching the dining area, you hear excited chattering, fridge door revolving, microwave beeping, toaster toasting.  Enter the lunch room and you see a group of Ambassador employees sharing family stories, new recipes, church sermons, and viral videos.

This is actually the case not only Monday, but most weekdays in our office.  And our conversations inevitably turn to current events, religious freedom, and the day's news.  We dissect stories together, ask questions, and share ...

October is Down Syndrome Awareness Month

There's a guy at church named Scott who says I'm his girlfriend.

The reality is I'm just one of the many he refers to as his girlfriend.

Scott is special for a lot of reasons - he's quick to smile, likes everyone and is always eager to help.   Scott is near and dear to the hearts of many  . . . including mine.  Scott is 17 year olds and has Down syndrome.

Just as the other children in our church whom I've watched grow up, Scott has a special place in my heart.  He's taught me many things ...
