So, a hotel in England has removed the Bibles from the night tables and replaced them with copies of Fifty Shades of Grey--what can one say about that? The book and the movie address not romance, not love, not gentle courtship, not sex as the beautiful gift God intended, but something ugly and something evil. My advice? Don't read the book, and don't go see the movie.

The Gospels are rich with many examples of Jesus performing miraculous acts of healing. Despite our modern technology, advanced medicine, and increased healthcare access, many Philadelphians today lack resources, are homebound, or are just fearful of the cost of seeing a doctor. There are also many who do not know Christ. 

From June 27–July 18, twenty-six Christian medical, nursing, pharmacy, and other healthcare students will be going door-to-door…

As many of you know, this past year I served as Director of Tenth College Fellowship. My wife Erin and I are grateful for the opportunity we had to serve full-time in college ministry. It has been a significant year in our lives, during which we’ve been able to work out our sense of God’s calling. Our time at Tenth has instilled in us a deep love for both students…

I smiled when I saw the message in my inbox. This was an email I’d been wanting all year. It came from African Enterprise in Malawi. I sped through the note and clicked on the attachment. Photos spilled out. In them, African men with suits and ties stand smiling. Officials exchange ceremonious handshakes. Students dressed in school uniforms sit attentively on the ground watching. Some pictures show men giving speeches…

Pastoral interns are men preparing for ordination to pastoral ministry. Over the course of the year, the pastoral internship is designed to satisfy roughly half of a presbytery’s requirements for a pastoral internship. Staff interns are women preparing for vocational ministry. These interns receive a stipend.

Lauren Krause is a staff intern with Tenth College Fellowship (TCF). She moved from the Northwest last year to study counseling at…

Preparing the Next Generation

By Pat Canavan, Director of Children’s Ministries

Scripture: Proverbs 22:6

Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from.  Proverbs 22:6.

Sundays at Tenth are busy for families, and as children move from one hour to the next, some may wonder if there is a coherent plan in the programs we offer. Our goal at Tenth is to raise up a generation that knows, honors…

Love the Unlovely

Impressions from the 2015 Summer Medical Institute (SMI)

Love the unlovely. 

This difficult concept refers to Christian compassion and care for people and circumstances we might otherwise avoid or ignore. Examples are woven throughout the Bible: God’s persevering care for the people of Israel, Jonah sent to Nineveh, Jesus and the woman at the well, Jesus eating with tax collectors at Levi’s house, and his compassion on the harassed crowds in Matthew 9, to name a…

Some of the final words of Jesus to his disciples were to go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to observe all that he had commanded them (Matthew 28:19–20). Tenth’s Church Planting Committee actively engages and supports a number of church planters in their call to plant churches in our…

As Tenth’s website manager, I sometimes hear from people who watch our live webcasts or download sermons. I recently received an email from Martin Harder, co-captain of a Dutch cargo ship, who expressed appreciation for Pastor Liam’s sermons. Captain Harder downloads Tenth sermons for his crew to watch as part of their weekly, on-board Sunday services. Named after the…
