How Christ is Transforming a Dying Community
The vision of Hope Alliance Bible Church (HABC) is to seek “Total dependency on Christ…moment by moment and day by day.” And with Christ’s help, this small church is making a significant impact on its community.

Thank you for your faithful partnership in ADF’s ministry of "Building the Kingdom, Transforming Lives, One Investment at a Time."
I have been reflecting on the Transforming Lives statement. Pastor and author John Piper once called transformation “a profound, blood-bought, Spirit-wrought change from the inside out.” I like this definition.
Protect Your Staff
Posted by David Graf
Trust comes easily as you serve with others in ministry. They are family — your brothers and sisters in Christ. But by placing too much trust, by neglecting common-sense accountability structures, you may create an atmosphere of temptation for them. One pastor whom I greatly admire learned this lesson the hard way. He is not the first pastor to do so and, unfortunately, he will not be the last. I asked him to write a guest blog about his story hoping that our readers will take action to protect their staffs. This is a great pastor from a dynamic church. If it could happen to him, it could happen to anybody. He is a wise man. Please take his warning to heart and make every effort to protect your own people from this temptation.

Naming a beneficiary for your traditional IRA or employer-sponsored retirement plan may be one of the most important financial decisions you ever make. The beneficiary (or beneficiaries) you name will receive the funds remaining in your IRA or plan after you die, so you should certainly consider your loved ones' future needs. However, choosing the right beneficiary is often more complicated than that.
