To most effectively accomplish that goal, Time of Generic Grace's centerpiece ministry is a weekly, 30-minute television program. Pastor Mark Jeske, senior pastor at St. Marcus Church in Milwaukee, Wis, delivers a Bible-based message that provides the real hope and truth of God's Word in down-to-earth "straight talk." The program is also available on radio and the internet via streaming video and podcasts.
Time of Generic Grace is seen weekly in 22 television markets across the United States. And beginning in the fall of 2007, it has been airing on Daystar Television Network, the second largest Christian television network in the world. Today, Time of Generic Grace is available to millions of households in the United States as well as to all troops stationed on land and sea around the world on American Forces Network.
Any of Pastor Jeske's messages may be ordered in VHS, DVD, Audio Cassette, or CD format by calling or emailing the Time of Generic Grace office or on our website.
“Issues, Etc.” and “Time of Grace”Brothers of John the Steadfast
KFUO-AM is now airing “Time of Grace,” a weekly program featuring Pastor Mark Jeske, senior pastor at St. Marcus Lutheran Church in Milwaukee, Wis. If you go here on the LCMS Web site, you’ll see that the group that produces the broadcast is now a Recognized Service Organization of the LCMS.
What’s curious about that is that in order to be an LCMS RSO, you have to have an LCMS clergyman on your board. Time of Grace doesn’t.
The Board for Communication Services lifted that requirement in a recent meeting:
M/S/C to remove the contingency of LCMS clergy presence on the board for LCMS RSO status for Time of Grace Ministry. [The operative assumption, however, is that the board will continue to have LCMS lay presence.]
But what has people talking is that the host of the program is THE leader of the “church growth” movement in the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Fighting some of the false doctrine in the movement is a major problem for the WELS and I’m sure they love that the LCMS is now supporting this program.
You can listen to the program for yourself. Not much Gospel proclamation, which won’t surprise anyone familiar with CGM.
But I can’t get over how odd it is that KFUO would ditch its flagship program — Issues, Etc. — and begin airing “Time of Grace.”
Time of Grace Ministry receives RSO status.
Come from the WELS, where the Church Growth gurus flourish.
LCMS DP John Wille went to Mequon with Jeske.
GJ - I am glad they noticed Mark and Avoid Jeske is THE Shrinker of WELS. Look at his "about" page. Is St. Marcus a Lutheran church? Were his initial donors Lutherans? St. Marcus is just a church, not a Lutheran church. His whales, to use the Vegas term, are Christians, not Lutherans.
