Fathering the Fatherless

July 14, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Dave Kistler, Tim Schneider

Almost 60 years ago, about one in ten children grew up without the physical presence of a father in the home. Today, the staggering reality is that one in three children are fatherless-with an absent, incarcerated, or deceased father. While we know the need for children to grow up with both a father and a mother is crucial to their physical, social, and spiritual health, the culture continues to rush headlong into the destruction of the family unit as we’ve known it since the beginning of creation. Hollywood and the media glorify the single Mom or Dad, the homosexual couple, and transgender children; but these lifestyles and choices don’t come without a price to pay. On this program, our guest, Tim Schneider, will give his testimony about how he grew up without a father and a dysfunctional mother. He’ll tell us about his difficult early years and the moment his life was changed through a local church ministry and the men and women who reached out to him with the gospel and a helping hand.

Democrats and Black America: The Iron Triangle

December 1, 2019 • December 1, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Dave Kistler, Joe Green, and Vince Ellison

The term, ‘social justice’, has taken on a new meaning, often used by liberal media, left leaning politicians, and educational elites. However, some in the church, and even well-meaning Pastors have embraced the perception that ‘social justice’ is a duty, not only of Americans, but believers, as well. But is it? On this program, Host Sam Rohrer talks with an African American man who was born on a cotton plantation in Tennessee to sharecropping parents. He’s familiar with the black ethos and throughout his growing up years, came to intimately understand the struggles and failures of the black culture both religiously and politically. He ultimately became involved with many African American Civic Organizations, only to find that those who claimed to want to help the black community, were often the same ones destroying it. Find out how and why when you listen to this program. Host: Sam Rohrer Co-host: Dave Kistler Co-host: Pastor Joe Green Guest: Vince Ellison

God, Trump, and the 2020 Election

November 24, 2019 • November 24, 2019 • Sam Rohrer, Gary Dull, Dave Kistler, Steve Strang

Thanksgiving is upon us and hopefully you’ll find yourself celebrating the day around the table with family or friends. It’s a time we set aside, as Americans, to remember all God’s done for us as a nation, and all He’s done for us as individuals. We’re grateful because we know that without God’s blessing, this country wouldn’t be known as the defender of truth and justice or the land of freedom and prosperity. The picture just described has been and is the ideal America-but it’s quickly becoming a thing of the past. While history is being rewritten by liberal ideology to portray the Founders as bigoted white racists, the culture war against our civil and religious liberties increase, almost by the day, it seems. This divided nation knows we’re headed for a showdown with the 2020 Presidential elections. Many Conservative organizations are mobilizing and recruiting volunteers to pray and distribute information across all forms of media and messaging platforms. On this program, guest Steve Strang, founder and CEO of Charisma News, is going to talk about his new book aptly titled, “God, Trump, and the 2020 Election”.

Big Government, Big Problems, and No Easy Fixes

November 17, 2019 • November 17, 2019

When Ronald Reagan was elected president in 1980 on the platform of Constitutional integrity and federalism, and was re-elected four years later on those same principles, he had this to say during one of his famous speeches: “I think it’s time we ask ourselves if we still know the freedoms that were intended for us by the Founding Fathers…Whether we believe in our capacity for self-government or whether we abandon the American Revolution and confess that a little intellectual elite in a far distant capital can plan our lives for us better than we can plan them ourselves.” He went on to explain, “You and I are told increasingly that we have to choose between a left or right, but I would like to suggest that there is no such thing as a left or right. There is only an up or down-up to a man’s age-old dream; the ultimate in individual freedom consistent with law and order-or down to the ant heap of totalitarianism, and regardless of their sincerity, their humanitarian motives, those who would trade our freedom for security have embarked on this downward course.” President Reagan knew what many others don’t seem to understand. While the cause of freedom was successful in the founding of our nation, the struggle to maintain it must persist, the baton must be carried on, and the banner lifted high if we and our posterity are to experience the blessings of liberty that was so hardly fought and won. This program will address this topic and if you consider yourself a patriot-a lover of freedom and a follower of Jesus Christ, I trust you’ll stay tuned for this very pertinent episode of Stand in the Gap Weekend.
