Tony & Katie Sundermeier: Stay With Us - Companionship and Christian Discipleship

Tuesday August 10, 2021
Two life companions share three ways companionship deepens discipleship—it guarantees we do not walk difficult or uncertain roads alone; it reminds us that Christ is revealed in what is shared between us; and it empowers us to share the good news.

Tony Sundermeier: Are All Ushers?

Tuesday January 22, 2019
In his sermon on 1 Corinthians 12:27-31, Dr. Tony Sundermeier looks at ways people serve in churches, noting that what happens in many congregations is that we’re so desperate to fill the gaps that we fail to have meaningful conversations together about call and gifts, rather than just trying to fill open slots with whatever warm body we can find.

Tuesday June 21, 2016
Luke 9 marks the cost for those entering and receiving God’s kingdom. And what is clear in Luke 9, Dr. Tony Sundermeier says, are both the urgency and focus that mark the call to follow Jesus in and for the world. There is no time to wait. Now is the time to proclaim the Kingdom of God, now is the time to follow Jesus.
