Scandia Host: If you are in Christ, you have been called to be a missionary.
Average Guy: I’m not a missionary??? I’m just sitting here in the pew.
Scandia Host: I get it. You better listen up though.
Today on Scandia Bible Church Podcast, we welcome back to our pulpit – after an eight year hiatus – Scandia Bible Church supported, missionary and brother in Christ, Vasiliy Kaletnik (of abwe.org)… who for nearly 30 years – since the fall of the USSR – has been preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the very poor and landlocked Eastern European country of Moldova. For all intents and purposes, he’s a modern day circuit preacher, preaching at five different churches during the week and three on Sunday – making disciples and baptizing them in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
Following Brother Vasiliy, Pastor Monty echoes a short sermon… that no matter where we are in the world – whether it be in Moldova or Poulsbo – we, as Christians, are all missionaries: we share the same calling, same message, and serve the same Lord with Christ as the head.
Description: Join us as we welcome back to our pulpit “the missionary who speaks from the heart,” David Hardin — a gentleman who, in his younger years, actually attended our small country church. For the past dozen years he, along with his wife and growing young family, has ministered to the indigenous people of the Tarahumara Tribe in the mountains of Northern Mexico through Mexico Mission Aviation with emphasis on medical flights, literacy, and Biblical teaching and discipleship.
Description: Join us as missionary, Reverend Jim Thurston of Integrity Ministries, returns once again to our country church to update us on how God is working through him to minister to the people of Chile.
Description: In today’s sermon Elder Keith Barker takes to the pulpit to marvel at God’s protection of His people, as he takes us back to his days in the mission field serving island villagers south of Equator… some 40 years ago.
Description: Ten years, one ambitious vision: 100 million people touched with the gospel around the world. Those are the marching orders of Reach Global, the international arm of the Evangelical Free Church of America, which exists to multiply healthy churches among all people for the glory of God.
Today we are joined by Scandia Bible Church supported Reach Global Missionary, Tony Freitas — a man, together with his family, called by God to faithfully serve the people of Tanzania, Africa. They are living, as Tony says,
“…a life of serving the poorest of the poor. It’s a tough life but there is nothing that I could possibly imagine to be more fulfilling than serving the Lord! I am not a formal pastor and have not been to seminary, yet God has clearly called our family to serve Him in Africa to use the gifts that he has given each of us. As 1 Peter 4:10 states, ‘Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of Gods grace in its various forms.’”
Description: Join us as we welcome back to our pulpit a missionary — who not only has strong ties to our little country church — but speaks from the heart, David Hardin. David, together with his wife Delia and young growing family, serve our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, as part of the aviation team for Mexico Medical Missions. In our message today, David walks us through the Beatitudes in the book of Matthew and shows us how they apply to the progression we see in our Christian walk.
Description: To be a Christian Mother is a high, holy and crucial calling. It is the highest calling any Christian woman can enter. We must never underestimate the power of God working through a mother to achieve His purposes.

Description: Join us as we welcome long time missionary and “Pioneer of Christian Television in Chile,” Reverend Jim Thurston of Integrity Ministries.

Description: Because this is God’s church, He has given us marching orders on how it should be structured and run. In modern times, we have allowed the idea of pragmatism to enter the church and have started adopting business practices and other unbiblical methods. Paul tells us not only the leadership structure of a church but also the purpose of the leaders and it looks very different from what we usually see today.
