The other day I was visiting with an old friend. During the conversation I asked, "I understand that you married Jane. Why?"
"Because she's different," he replied.
"How different?" I asked.
"She's the only one who would have me," he explained.
But there's One who will accept everyone unconditionally. Young or old, rich or poor, our condition does not matter. Jesus said, "Come to me," and then He added, "if you do come, I will not cast you out."

Pasadena, CA (July 8th – 12th, 2013)
J. D. Institute is offering a Free Ministry Intensive Training Course this July 8th - 12th. The Ministry Summer Fellowship at J. D. Institute is a weeklong intensive training program geared toward Pastors, Ministers, Missionaries, Evangelist and Lay Leaders in local congregations. This training program will help leaders develop ministry skills in actual clinical settings, combining the theory of Christian ministry with ministry practice.
Training will take place in group sessions, seminars, and at actual clinical sites. Learn the theory behind biblical interpretation, Christian theology and doctrine, and aspects of Christian ministry. How should Christian leaders engage in effective ministry in a 21st century social-political climate? This program will address such issues paying close attention to the historical development of the Christian Church from its inception through the development of the modern Black Church movement.
