Matt has been influential in creating prophetic companies, culture, and helping others understand what a prophet is. Matt believes his highest priority is being a husband, and a father to his three kids. He says the way he advances the kingdom starts with his family. Matt shares his journey of starting on a college campus, and having an encounter with God in 2000, and how that started a campus movement that propelled a massive move of God. From there, Matt has seen God do work through so many different ays to bring His kingdom to Earth including creative miracles, operating in the prophetic, and changing cultures all around him daily through understanding God's principles. He shares these experiences, and how they have opened doors to impact government in surprising ways. You don't want to miss this interview!
When life takes you in many different directions, it can feel very confusing and purposeless. God uses our gifts and strengths in many ways and in many areas. Sometimes, it is up to us to choose what path we want to pursue. This is exactly the mentality that my guest, Scott Beebe, has used to find his passion and purpose in life. He decided that his true purpose was finding the place where business and faith intertwined.
Scott is the founder of My Business On Purpose. He is on a mission to coach small business owners to leave behind chaos and step forward into a clear vision for their business. His 4 Steps to Business Freedom systematize business principles in a structure that makes sense to everyone. He has seen firsthand how businesses thrive under clear vision and direction.
Transforming businesses just wasn’t enough for Scott. Today, you are going to find out how he used his faith to drive every business decision and vision session. You will get to see the many twists and turns that led Scott to entrepreneurship. It was an internal struggle between a desire to do God’s mission work on earth, but also to use the skills in business. Scott has managed to create something that blends the two perfectly, and I am excited for you to learn from him today.

Christy Austin talks about Worship and Prayer: Pioneering His Presence in Cities.
God’s purpose for our lives will always lead us to serve and edify other people in the church. My guest today never imagined she would be writing Bible studies or leading women towards discipleship, but by faithfully following God’s call on her life, that is exactly where she landed. Today on the show is Melissa Kruger, a writer, editor, disciple maker, and Jesus-follower who is living out her purpose in a mighty way.
Melissa is a writer focused on bringing the principles of strong discipleship to women across the world. She is a regular contributor to the Gospel Coalition and is on staff with Uptown Church in Charlotte, North Carolina. Her favorite role so far has been to be a mother to her 3 kids, a wife to her husband, and a sister who points others to Jesus faithfully. Melissa has found her purpose in making the Word of God accessible to women who are seeking after Him.
After noticing that there was a gap in women’s discipleship and Bible Study material, Melissa felt God calling her to bridge that gap. Filling that needled others to notice her gift for writing, and then the rest is history. Today, we had the chance to talk about the importance of studying God’s Word, finding joy in all circumstances, and what it takes to be a working writer.

God gives us all unique gifts, and to some he even grants fame. What happens when fame comes knocking? Is it possible to stay humble? That was my burning question for Mac Powell, the lead singer of the band, Third Day. Many people consider Third Day to be a pioneer in the Christian music business, but to Mac, it was just a result following God’s call on his life.
Mac has toured all over the world and has even been inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. During his two decades of being a recording artist, Mac stays true to his faith by clinging to scriptures like Romans 5:8. Mac looks to Jesus and his five children as his guiding forces. The music he makes is for his family and his savior. It was truly a privilege to get to talk to Mac today, and I know you will be blessed by what he has to say about his crazy gift of a life.

Having a heart and a passion for service doesn’t always look the same. Sometimes, the way we conduct our businesses can also have God’s mission and our purpose in mind. My guest today sees his business in just this way—as a way to live out his calling to minister to God’s people.
Brian Schiele has been in the mortgage lending business for the past 15 yrs, and he sees his job as the perfect opportunity to serve others. Your home is your largest asset, and many people come to Brian and Fellowship Home Loans with a dream. Brian makes those dreams financially possible. For Brian, mortgages are all about the stories of people and what they are looking to accomplish. He was lucky and found a business that enabled him to use his passion for people and gift with numbers together. He grew his business not just so he could make a lot of money, but so he could help a lot of people.

Today Dubb Alexander welcomes back Dr. Undrai Fizer, for part two of Kingdom Consciousness.
Dubb and Dr. Fizer have a great conversation about how the Kingdom of God is governmental in nature, and what that means to us as Kings of the earth.
If the earth is our Kingdom, why are we not taking our inheritance? Because we don't truly believe we are Kings. In the garden, Adam and Eve did not believe who they were. They didn't claim their territory. The fall was the first act of religion. The difference between religion and the Kingdom is: Religion caters to your mere humanity, the Kingdom tells you who you were before the foundation of the world.
Your identity transcends this dimension and this world.
In this podcast, Dr. Undrai Fizer will give you great resources to explore the Kingdom, teach you how to identify a Kingdom meeting, and more.
Today in episode 17 of Are You Real Linked Christy Austin will guide you through Luke chapter ten verse seven.
"And remain in the same house, eating and drinking what they provide, for the laborer deserves his wages. Do not go from house to house."
This verse says a lot to City Takers about the importance of community. For true revival to come to our cities we need to link arm in arm with our brothers and sisters around us because we can not take a city alone. There is no such thing as a lone ranger city taker.
In 2018 society is telling us that it is okay to bounce around from community to community. But Jesus is calling us in this verse to commit to one and other and stick it out even when it gets difficult.
Christy will share what her community looks like and how being intimate with each other also means true intimacy with the Holy Spirit.
One of the most influential ministries in the United States has got to be the Passion Conference, a ministry of Passion City Church. I’ve been following this ministry for 20 years, and it is so evident that God is moving through the worship ministry at Passion City Church. Even though Kristian Stanfill is at the center of this movement, making records and writing music heard all over the world, he knows that he would be nothing without the saving grace of Jesus.
Kristian is a singer and songwriter. His most recent album, Mountains Move, is absolutely incredible. Today, Kristian is going to share all of the experiences and decisions that led him to this amazing ministry. You see for Kristian, it’s not just about making records. For him, it’s about capturing what God is doing in the people of his church. God is the vision, and he simply acts in faith. Kristian and I had the chance to talk about community, unique gifts, and God’s call on our lives. I know you are going to love hearing the extreme faith that Kristian lives out every day!

Welcome to Are You Real Linked episode 16! Today Christy Austin breaks down Luke 10 and Galatians 5. These verses are extremely important for all City Takers as we look for "men and women of peace" in our towns.
The church is having an identity crisis because we are losing the relational aspect of the body and the bride. In the beginning, God longed for intimacy with man. A relationship is the foundation of our creation. When we press into our relationship with Him it transforms us from the inside out and we start bearing good fruit.
In Luke 10 Jesus doesn't tell us to look for the rule followers, or the churchgoers, or the religious He says "look for the man of peace". Peace is a fruit of the spirit if you flip over to Galatians 5 Paul clearly lays out how to identify good (Holy Spirit) and bad (Sin Nature) "fruits". If you are taking a city through the art of giving, you will love the wisdom in this episode.
What City are you taking? Reach out and tell us! We would love to link with you in prayer.
Is the fear of failure holding you back from God’s purpose for your life? Do you get stuck in the planning phases, but never actually take that leap of faith? I think today’s guest might inspire you to step out into your purpose. Matt Miller has had a variety of experiences from 9 years in the Air Force to being a top performer in the corporate world.

Matt has so much practical wisdom to share for any of you out there with a dream you are scared to pursue. Lucky for you, Matt has had plenty of experience and is willing to get you started. Most importantly, Matt sees his businesses as a way to bring God glory. The relationships he has built as a result of his business has opened doors for the gospel.
You can bring God glory through your business, too! You just have to step out in faith.

Today, we are going to shine some light on a topic many people don’t know much about. The subject is Embryo Adoption, and my expert guests are Katie Cline and Charis Boone. Embryo Adoption occurs when a couple has undergone IVF to produce embryos outside of the womb for the mother to carry to term. It is a miracle of modern medicine that is helping infertile couples grow their families, but it also has an unfortunate consequence: there are leftover embryos. Charis and Katie believe that life begins at conception, so these embryos are children waiting to be adopted. This is the inspiration behind the National Registry for Adoption, an organization committed to helping these embryos find forever families.
If this whole process sounds a little uncertain to you at first, give these ladies a chance to explain. Katie is an Embryo Donor, and Charis is an Embryo Adopter. They each have a unique perspective on the adoption process that is truly wonderful. Each of these ladies has the heart to give homes to the homeless and to nurture every child that is born or unborn. They were willing to walk through uncertainty, awkward conversations, and pregnancy to give these kids a life. God has been blessing their organization, and it is clear why. The National Registry is on to something!
Listen this week to hear how Charis and Katie found their purpose, and why Embryo Adoption needs to be at the forefront of the public eye.
