Spring 2014

Current Theme

The Next 100 Years...

In 2014, the Assemblies of God enters its centennial. Rather than asking our authors to take a retrospective look into our Fellowship's past, we asked them to take a prospective look into our Fellowship's future. Should the Lord tarry, what are the things the AG needs to do to better accomplish our four reasons for being: evangelism, worship, discipleship, and compassion? Our authors — all respected leaders within the Fellowship — offer their answers to this important question.

Next Time in Enrichment:

The Man Issue

In the last decade, a number of books have suggested that America has a man crisis. Men are increasingly absent from the home, the workforce, the church, and society. As Pentecostals, how should we address the man crisis? What does it mean to be a husband, father, friend, church member, and social influencer? That is what this issue of Enrichment sets out to investigate.
