Take the Pledge to Protect Vulnerable Children and Lift Up the Fatherless!

August is an exciting month here at Buckner! There is a tangible outpouring of Christ’s love during our annual Buckner Shoes for Orphan Souls drive.

Partners in the Gospel

I had the privilege of visiting the campus of Campbellsville University (CU), a private Christian liberal arts university in Kentucky at the beginning of March. I was invited to speak at their weekly convocation, share lunch with faculty and staff, and then to be interviewed on the university tv/radio program. You can learn more about […]

National Prayer Breakfast 2016

I had the wonderful privilege of attending the National Prayer Breakfast last week in Washington, DC. Since 1953, members of Congress have gathered to pray for our nation and have invited the President of the United States to join them in prayer and offer a few remarks. I am not suggesting that our political differences […]

Buckner Dominicana Engaging Families

I arrived in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic on Columbus Day, Monday October 12, 2015. Our timing was pretty amazing. However, as I listened to Dominicans describe this day, they spoke of celebrating the “Meeting of the Races,” or “Dia de las Razas.” While they did not celebrate Columbus, they did celebrate their history. I realized […]
