Home Run

On April 19th, the movie Home Run opens in theaters across the country.  The movie powerfully illustrates how, with traumatic results, a father’s addictive behavior can be transferred to his children.  But amid that trauma, God’s redeeming grace is also amplified.

Baseball all-star Cory Brand knows what it takes to win in the big leagues. But off the field, with memories of his past haunting him, his life is spiraling out of control. Hoping to save her client’s career and reputation after a DUI and a team suspension, Cory’s agent sends him back to the small town where he grew up. There he is forced to coach the local youth baseball team and spend eight weeks in the only recovery program in town, a Christian-based program called “Celebrate Recovery.” Cory can’t wait to return to his old life as quickly as possible.

As his young players help him experience the joy of the game, Cory discovers his need to find freedom from his past and hope for his future … and win back the love he left behind.  With this unexpected second chance, Cory finds himself on a powerful journey of transformation and redemption.

Based on thousands of true stories, Home Run is a powerful reminder that, with God, it’s never too late … because freedom is possible.

Discipleship Panel Discussion

Nazarenes have always stressed discipleship and the deeper Christian life. This emphasis was re-affirmed by the 2006 decision of the Board of General Superintendents to draft a denomination-wide statement of mission “to make Christlike disciples in the nations.” Since that time, many congregations are coming to terms with what it means to disciple “in the nations” and have a deeper sensitivity to how culture and context affect Christian nurture.   

In April 2012, five ministers in the Church of the Nazarene met to engage in a conversation on discipleship. The panel discussion was hosted by Woodie J. Stevens, director of Sunday School and Discipleship Ministries International (SDMI), and moderated by Larry Morris, who serves as mission strategist for the SDMI office. The panel explored discipleship from various perspectives and contexts. Participants included William Alvarado, Dean Blevins, Susan Carole, Brad Dyrness, and Joseph Knight.
