Curt Ammons teaches on the fascinating life of Solomon and the fight for purity.  Certainly we can all learn a great deal from one of the wisest and richest men who ever lived, King Solomon.  (Click here to listen now to Curt's sermon:  "Solomon:  The Fight for Purity".)  But first, Curt shares about how God led him to serve in the youth and family ministry. 

(Curt):  My wife, Heidi, and I have been in the full-time ministry since 1994.  We have three children—Wade, who is 10; Kaileigh, who is seven; and Chase, five.  We love serving in the Youth and Family Ministry in the Chicago Church of Christ; it is truly our passion and joy.  Heidi and I try very hard to “be all about the kingdom."


When Is a Teen Ready to Be Baptized?

by Friday, 15 May 2009 06:28
One of the toughest challenges we face as parents, youth leaders, and church leaders is knowing when a teenager is ready to make "Jesus the Lord" of his life.  A young man or woman may say or do all the "right things", but how do you know if they are prepared to make a lifetime commitment to Christ?

We enjoy many blessings as disciples of Jesus. In the Chicago Church of Christ, we also enjoy the sweet fellowship of nearly two thousand brothers and sisters. Last year marked the 25th anniversary of our church and we are now fully experiencing our second generation.
