Compassion International exists to rescue children from poverty in Jesus’ name. I love what they do for kids growing up in poverty. I also love what happens in the lives of sponsors who support those kids. Involving Compassion in what I do means seeing both of the above things happen. It also means that Compassion will help to cover my expenses.
uestions about how to sell what you create have taken a back seat to questions like…
- What do you want your work to accomplish?
- How do you set realistic and yet challenging goals?
- What do you do when you don’t reach those goals.
- How do you define “success” beyond sales numbers?
You are loved and valued by God because you are God’s. You are not what you make or achieve and you should not be judged by your level of productivity. The Sabbath is a gift and a practice that frees us from the anxiety of proving ourselves, letting us give the best of who we are to our world and the ones we love.
From the moment Justin introduced himself and began sharing his story, I saw a leader who was here to serve us, intentionally discover who we were as individuals, and walk with Christ through an interactive learning environment. Throughout this week Justin incorporated a unique way of teaching through a story centered approach and used worship sessions as a transition into the next lesson. Justin brought a new and refreshing energy to the classroom atmosphere, one that compelled us all to lean into the words he spoke.College Student
In our postmodern world, artists and storytellers hold the keys to people’s hearts. And there’s no artist our congregation has been more blessed by than Justin McRoberts. He beautifully weaves together story and song in ways that shed light on the deep pain of the human experience as well as the healing hope we find in Jesus. We like to entrust our entire Sunday morning service to him. People, young and old and from every place on the spiritual journey, are always touched by his message.Brad Wong, Lead Pastor, The River Church Community, San Jose
Justin has opened my eyes to how I can live my life for Christ, like Christ, and with Christ. Specifically, he reminded me how God doesn’t expect me to do devotions, Sabbath, prayer, and mission faultlessly. God calls us to enjoy our relationship with him through his Son, and to believe in the “good news” of the Gospel! These lessons gave my soul and heart such freedom, and I was reminded again of how good our Father is and that He continually showers me with grace.College Student
Justin McRoberts is the speaker for you. As a chaplain at a Christian University his voice of passion was exactly what our students needed to hear! As he shared from his heart about his doubts and questions, his experiences of grace and hope, and his deep love for Christ and others, students were deeply impacted. His use of humor, story, art and music engaged students that were in different places in their walk with Christ. Sometimes when you invite a speaker to come you have a lot of “clean up” to do afterwards. We just had benefits with Justin! We are grateful for the way he willingly partnered with us to see Christ’s Kingdom come.Olivia Metcalf, University Chaplain/Co-Director of the Office of Spiritual Formation, Northwest Nazarene University
