Main Show Topic: Moving Past Peer Pressure
Listen Now (Archive/Podcast):
Society may pressure us to conform to its way of life, but yielding to the pressure can eliminate our effectiveness in serving God. You do not have to be like gelatin – easily molded. Instead, you can help mold others by your strong faith (Leviticus 18:3).
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.

“The harvest is great, but the workers are few.” Matthew 9:37
Alive in Christ Radio LIVE || In-Studio Guest: Michael Hargis
Young blood ministries was birthed while Michael Hargis was attending Brownsville assembly of God church in Pensacola, Fl. Michael stayed on the campus of Teen challenge Pensacola for one year during which time God led him through several different walks eventually leading him to start a ministry to reach out to youth who have lived less than perfect lives. As Michael’s heart bleeds for the youth, Young Blood Ministries reaches out to the church as well as the community with the goal to teach the devastating effects of drugs and alcohol, peer pressure and other issues of today’s youth in order to equip them to live full, happy, productive lives.
Michael S. Hargis, was 9 years old when he was molested by a babysitter. At the age of 14 he was introduced to drugs and alcohol, and at the age of 16 ran away from home. From the age of 14, Michael has been through 7 drug treatment centers and has been jailed numerous times. Feeling that Satan had backed him into a corner and feeling no hope, he began to contemplate suicide until one night when he completely gave up and cried out to God. God heard his cry and the next day two different people arrived at his house within an hour of one another telling him that God had sent them. He had never met these people before. Realizing that God had literally led these people to his door he instantly knew of God’s love and that He truly cared for him. That night, Michael totally surrendered to the Lord and did nothing for the next year but seek God’s face which totally transformed and restored his life. “God told me I would be preaching His word and this is why He saved my life” says Michael.
Michael founded Young Blood Ministries, which seeks out troubled teens. He travels to youth groups, both in and out of the church, teaching the devastating effects of drugs and alcohol and sharing his testimony. He has written a book entitled “What Every Teenager Should Know” and is currently writing his second book, Greater Understanding” to be released in the near future.

Alive in Christ Radio LIVE || Christian Book of the Week:
Author: Kyle Idleman
Title: Not a Fan: Becoming a Completely Committed Follower of Jesus
Description: Are you a follower of Jesus? Don’t answer too quickly. In fact, you may want to read this book before you answer at all. Consider it a ‘Define the Relationship’ conversation to determine exactly where you stand. You may indeed be a passionate, fully devoted follower of Jesus. Or, you may be just a fan who admires Jesus but isn’t ready to let him cramp your style. Then again, maybe you’re not into Jesus, period. In any case, don’t take the question—Are you a follower of Jesus?—lightly.
Some people don’t know what they’ve said yes to and other people don’t realize what they’ve said no to, says Pastor Kyle Idleman. But Jesus is ready to clearly define the relationship he wants with his followers. Not a Fan calls you to consider the demands and rewards of being a true disciple.
With frankness sprinkled with humor, Idleman invites you to live the way Jesus lived, love the way he loved, pray the way he prayed, and never give up living for the One who gave his all for you.
