On this edition of Alive in Christ Radio LIVE, we carry on with our discipleship series. We zero in on the “Six Issues of Transforming to Christ.” We discuss the following discipleship questions: What did Jesus believe? How did Jesus live? How did Jesus love? How did Jesus train? How did Jesus minister? How did Jesus lead? Christianity without discipleship is always Christianity without Christ (Dietrich Bonhoeffer).
It is our prayer that you be Spirit-filled and blessed by what you will discover on this unique edition of Alive in Christ Radio LIVE.
During these two hours, we will learn how God’s perfect love and faithfulness can help us walk hand-in-hand with God—leading us through this life into a life of total victory, in all things, through His anointing, discernment, and great comfort.
Special Guests: Jennifer Maggio, Founder of “The Life of a Single Mom Ministries; and Gene Goertzen, Director of AWANA San Diego
We round out our program with features including Joyce Meyer’s “Everyday Moments”, Focus on the family’s Plugged-In Movie Review and Focus on the Family Minute, Beth Moore’s “A Quick Word”, Luis Palau’s “Reaching Your World”, and Dave Ramsey’s “Daily Money Makeover.”
On this edition of Alive in Christ, Christian Discipleship Ministries’ Founder, Tony Marino and Lynn Kennedy explore life’s guidelines verses His “God-lines”, and will it be “your way”, or “Yahweh?” We invite you to join us.
On this episode we will learn to, “let go and let God.”
“The harvest is great, but the workers are few.” Matthew 9:37

Alive in Christ Radio LIVE || In-Studio Guest: Gene Goertzen
Gene and his wife Nancy were approached by their pastor on their wedding day in June 1966 with a request to start an AWANA ministry upon return from their honeymoon. For the next 2 years, both as college students, they joyfully served on an AWANA advisory board and were instrumental in starting AWANA clubs, running conferences and Olympics.
After graduating college, they relocated to Washington state and served as directors for AWANA summer camp where they observed nearly 550 decisions were made to follow Jesus during that 3 month period. They continued to start many AWANA programs in the Pacific Northwest when they realized their ability to have an impact on the entire west coast.
In 1970 they became Awana Missionaries and moved to California where they started with three AWANA churches while expanding their reach as far east as the Rocky Mountains. In 2003, they added Hawaii to their territory.
Today, there are over 1000 churches in California alone which support AWANA programs. There are currently eight AWANA Missionaries in California and thousands of leaders have been trained to reach boys and girls with the gospel of Christ and in turn are training these boys and girls to serve our Savior.
Gene and Nancy continue to be a part of training AWANA Missionaries in far reaching countries such as South Africa, India, Australia, Sweden, Bangladesh, and the Philippines.

Title: The Church and the Single Mom
Description: Is Your Church “Single Mom-Friendly”? Are you doing all you can to reach out to the hundreds of single moms in your community? If she happened into your church one Sunday morning would she feel welcomed and loved? Would she get the sense that she was at home? That she, like the woman Jesus rescued from the stones of her accusers, wasn’t being judged or condemned but raised up and valued – no matter how she ended up a single mom? Would she find hope, the hope of Jesus Christ? If not, leading single-parent authority Jennifer Barnes Maggio has good news! In her new book The Church and the Single Mom (a follow-up to her critically-acclaimed first book Overwhelmed: The Life of a Single Mom) Maggio introduces you to the single mom and shows you why we as a church are called to care for her and her children. The numbers are staggering. And if we don’t reach behind those numbers to the women and children caught in the epidemic to help, who will? Maggio not only demonstrates the problem but provides a step-by-step guide to starting a life-changing single moms ministry. And she should know. She is not only a former single mom herself but one who founded and runs one of the nation’s largest single moms ministries and has helped launch more than 70 such ministries across the country.
