Behind the Work

Hosted by Grant Turgeon

God’s work today is backed by a spiritual family of approximately 5,000 Philadelphia Church of God members and many more thousands of co-workers. The primary focus of a true Christian’s life is to contribute to the work in any way possible. Tune in each Monday at 11:30 a.m. Central time as host Grant Turgeon provides a behind-the-scenes look at the vibrant and exciting work of the living God through interviews, feature stories, updates and statistical rundowns. With the help of the Autobiography of Herbert W. Armstrong, you will also learn how the work of God today relates to the spectacular, miraculous, five-decade work of the end-time Elijah.
