Join Me In Living Fearlessly

I’m partnering with my longtime friend Brother Andrew (May 11, 1928 – September 27, 2022) who showed me how to live a fearless life. I want to share with you some of what he taught me. Sign up to receive my twice-monthly email with Brother Andrew's powerful teaching and stories that demonstrate how we can live fearlessly by faith.

Fearless by Faith

Learn How to Fight Today's Spiritual Battles

For more than 50 years, Brother Andrew traveled the world, smuggling Bibles across Communist borders, encouraging Christians to stand strong in the face of overwhelming odds. And now, as turmoil and chaos swirl around us--and the enemy of our souls infects our hearts with fear--Brother Andrew offers the same bold encouragement for the battles we face today.
