Exodus | Pharaoh’s Heart | Exodus 7:1-5 | Marc Rader
This Sunday we are going to take a theological detour in the book of Exodus to explore the Lord’s hardening of Pharaoh’s heart. This action of God seems to tilt the playing field unfairly against Pharaoh. Is there a way to understand this that preserves God’s integrity and Pharaoh’s freedom? Spoiler alert: I think there is!
Unfolding | My Story | Psalm 139:1-16 | Marc Rader
Marc outlines five areas where we can look for God’s activity in our individual lives and in our world including answered prayers, “coincidences”, experiences of God, invitations to join in his wider work, and changes in our lives or in the lives of others.
Marc Rader - The Qualities & Skills of Effective Preachers & Communicators
Voices of the Global Church
Marc Rader and Graham Hill discuss the qualities and skills of effective preachers and communicators. The Global Church Project podcast episode #120. On https://www.TheGlobalChurchProject.comMarc Rader was born in Canada to a Lutheran minister and his wife. Growing up he never thought that he would follow in his father's footsteps – he wasn't against the idea, it just never crossed his mind. Eventually, however, the Lord led him to ministry. Marc began theological study at Tyndale Bible College in Toronto and ministered at a Christian and Missionary Alliance church. Even then, teaching was the one aspect of ministry that he enjoyed the most. While there he met his Aussie wife Nicole and in 1996 they relocated to Sydney where he began work in Gymea Baptist Church. Marc held several roles at the church, eventually moved into his current role of Senior Pastor.In 2005, Marc was asked to join the faculty of Morling College on a part-time basis. Over the years he has taught the Biblical Survey courses, Church History, an Introduction to NT Greek, and Advanced Preaching. While working in two institutions has its challenges, Marc has found that working in a local church keeps his teaching grounded in active ministry and involvement in the academy strengthens that ministry.Marc's external ministry includes training events and preaching and speaking at a wide range of events. Marc recently completed a Doctor of Ministry degree, which focused on feedback for preachers. It is Marc's hope to turn the doctoral project into a effective tool for preachers all over the world.
