Pastor Gene Lingerfelt Teaches on Missions

Dr. Gene Lingerfelt

Dr. Gene Lingerfelt

ARLINGTON, TEXAS, USA, December 10, 2018 / — For more than three decades, Dr. Gene Lingerfelt has traveled the world, visiting many nations, preaching the Good News of the Gospel. Through Faith Christian Center’s various ministries and outreaches, more than 240,000 people have accepted Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, more than $9 million has been given away, and more than 68 churches have been pioneered.

“Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Matthew 28:19-20

Dr. Gene Lingerfelt and Faith Christian Center support missions work around the world and at home. The call to support missions and missionaries is part of God’s plan to reach the lost with the Good News of the Gospel. As Paul wrote to Timothy, a young man he trained for ministry, God wants all men and women to be saved. (2 Timothy 3:9) But as Paul also asks in Romans 10:14-15, “how can they hear without someone preaching to them? And how can they preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!” Indeed!

The book of Acts not only provides us with the history of the early Church, it also gives us a blueprint for Missions. Before He ascended into heaven, Jesus reminded the disciples that they should continue His work once they received the baptism of the Holy Spirit. They were to then “go into all the world.” They had a mission to share the love of God and the Good News of the Gospel with everyone they came into contact with, carrying the Gospel to the uttermost ends of the earth. At Faith Christian Center, Dr. Gene Lingerfelt often teaches on the Great Commission. Jesus reminds us in Matthew 28, that we are not just to make believers or converts. Jesus actually commanded us to make disciples, teaching them to obey God’s commands. That is the focus and mission of Faith Christian Center in every service, every outreach, and every missions endeavor.

“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead, he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” -2 Peter 3:9

Dr. Gene Lingerfelt teaches regularly that everyone who knows the kindness of Christ should share it with others. God wants the world to know about His Son. He has chosen us as individuals and as churches to share the Good News of the Gospel with others.

“God has not just called us to make believers or converts, He has called us to make disciples, teaching them to obey,” explains Dr. Gene Lingerfelt. “God has called us to do that, going into all the world preaching the Good News of the Gospel.”

At Faith Christian Center, we believe that as followers of Christ, we are to share the love and goodness of God with everyone we come into contact with. Every person deserves the opportunity to hear the Gospel at least once! As Paul says in Romans 10:15, “How beautiful–how precious–are the feet of those who bring good news!” Not everyone will accept the Gospel or believe, but as Christians, we must do our part and give everyone the opportunity to hear the Gospel at least once and to make that choice or decision.

Dr. Gene Lingerfelt would love to connect with you and to teach you how to practically apply the Bible to your everyday life. To do that and for more info, click here.

A London based startup is building a challenger platform for Capital fund raising for Enterprises based on Blockchain and Artificial Intelligence technologies.

LONDON, BERKSHIRE, UNITED KINGDOM, December 10, 2018 / — Sovren announced on Friday 7th of December, 2018, that it has raised $1,150,000 through a Seed funding round, which was led by Chaintechplc a leading Blockchain fund and incubator based in London. This follows their successful Seed Round from 2 key Institutional players in Blockchain, NextGenFund and BFG from Switzerland and South Korea respectively.

Sovren, a challenger in the Security Token Issuance (STO) and Trading Market, is on a mission to fundamentally change the way traditional capital funding and Initial Public Offerings (IPOs) operate today. Through adoption of Blockchain technologies, automating business processes through Robotic Process Automation (RPA) and Artificial Intelligence, the cost and timescales for funding will be significantly reduced whilst access to investment products will be made available to an audience of investors that to date has not had the opportunity to invest in these new innovative products, such as asset backed loan products.

Sovren is also aiming to create a secondary market for Security Tokens. Through its Blockchain based Mobile Application, regulated securities products, stocks and STOs, will be available to trade safely and securely.

“Our mission is to make the trillion dollars of illiquid assets, liquid and available to the global trading market. Blockchain and AI technologies will streamline fund raising and investment businesses that to date have seen very slow progress for innovation, specifically when it comes to making use of the best technologies to make investment more accessible to a global audience to build and create wealth. “said Avijeet Jayashekhar, founder and CEO of Sovren.

“My main motivation for launching Sovren was driven out of the fact that I have always felt investment and wealth building was an exclusive market controlled by the few. I entered the Blockchain space as I felt it will break this mould, for the first time wealth was being built by global communities of investors, investing in projects they believed in, not controlled and distributed by the few “ said Wynand de Jager, founder and CTO of Sovren.

“We are now very excited to appoint Mr. Peter Kudera to the Sovren’s Board as an important next step in our continued growth. He will bring a wealth of experience to our business having had a long career as a prominent and successful business man, including now in Blockchain. The Sovren technology will be at the forefront of bringing innovation to capital markets and we have no doubt that having Mr. Kudera on board will further enhance our trajectory to making our ambitious project a reality “ said the Sovren Founders jointly.

In regards to the company’s growth and development, Peter Kudera, Chairman at Chaintechplc added:

“Capital fund raising through Blockchain and Security token issuance is the beginning of a new era of Financial revolution and the market is ready for global adoption. It empowers business owners to raise funds through innovative regulated products other than just traditional equity or debt issuance. Fund raising through fractional ownership of security assets executed over Digital smart contract will challenge the very existence of Traditional Stock Exchanges. We look forward to support Sovren and be part of their mission to bring Fintech innovation in the regulated digital securities market.”

Sovren is raising another $2 Million to accelerate the growth of the business and close the current investment round. The funding will be used to complete the delivery of a full suite of products related to making financing and investment more accessible to main stream investors with a target launch date of mid-2019.

Capitalize on the booming kiosk market by investing in an emerging industry leader

Customer in quick service restaurant using Juke technology

BIRMINGHAM, ALABAMA, US, December 10, 2018 / — Juke has changed the world of self-ordering kiosks with innovative solutions designed to generate substantial revenue for restaurants. Now, the thriving Alabama start-up allowing those who want to capitalize on its success to join the company’s investment team.

Juke, operating for more than five years, has rapidly gained success by manufacturing a complete hardware and software solution focused on the restaurant and hospitality industries. The company, with seed funding from its founders, has gained market share by consistently generating more than a million dollars in revenue annually throughout its infancy.

Solidifying a foothold in the kiosk market, Juke, with machines deployed worldwide, has begun making available immediate opportunities for outside investors to become part of and benefit from one of the fastest growing industries in the world.

Juke intends to raise capital to expand its technology into other industries, as well as develop advanced artificial intelligence technology. Juke leaders want to do what similar companies have done – provide scores of jobs for residents and generate millions in tax revenue for the state.

Kiosks are a key piece of the worldwide technology revolution. These units — ranging from free-standing machines to hand-held devices – are being used almost everywhere, at airports, banks, transportation facilities, restaurants and hospitals. Kiosks have significantly changed the landscape of the business world, in many cases forcing employees to learn new skill that make them more value to their employers and the customers they serve.

While kiosks become more prevalent, their presence will only continue to grow. That’s why it’s vital that local businesses and states that are not prepared to embrace the rapid spread of technology in the consumer space many tax dollars and businesses can be lost. Recent research shows the self-service kiosk industry is expected to reach $36 billion dollar in revenue by the year 2024.

Restaurants are choosing Juke because the company helps restaurants generate more revenue and profit, smooth their operations by making labor more efficient and reducing theft and enhance the consumer experience in such a way that keeps them coming back.

What separates Juke from the competition is the team’s expertise, proven strategies targeted to meet a restaurant’s specific needs and, of course, its diverse product lineup.

How to lose belly fat fast: Introducing the gel and belt which help you lose inches around your waist

How to lose belly fat fast

How to lose belly fat fast - 2

Gel V Before & After

Gel V Before & After

Gel-V is the body firming gel that tones loose skin and helps with skin concerns

So many people have stubborn areas that won’t go away.” says Vanna. “And it’s not an indication of how fit and healthy they are – skin flaws affect even the fittest person in the room.”

— Vanna Belt

MIAMI, FL, UNITED STATES, December 10, 2018 / — Many of us have tried some crazy fads to lose that baby pouch, muffin top, and love handles. How to lose belly fat fast and get healthier in the process, it’s all about adopting good habits and sticking to them.

For many, eating well and working out helps, but doesn’t always reduce the size of your belly. Vanna Belt’s Gel-V Body Firming & Stretch Marks Repair gel is a dermo-cosmetic reduction gel that gets results. Adding their V-Belt compression garments into the mix is the best duo to mold and trim your torso.

Body toning and skin tightening ingredients
The Gel-V formula contains vitamins A, C, and E, which preserve and restore collagen and elastin – the main substances your skin needs to stay firm and elastic. It also contains green tea extract to reduce the negative effects of inflammation.

Gel-V was created by social media fitness enthusiast Jovanna Correa. Vanna realized that no matter how much diet and exercise you engage in, everyone still faces challenges in their fitness journey, and wonders how to slim their waist and solve stubborn skin problems.

“After pregnancy many women end up with a kangaroo pouch.” says Vanna. “And it’s not an indication of how fit and healthy they are – pregnancy can leave behind skin flaws that affect even the fittest person in the room.”

Gel-V should be massaged into the skin twice a day. The Gel-V formula penetrates the skin at a cellular level to reduce unwanted love handles and post-pregnancy bellies.

Mix strength training with cardio
Body fat responds well to serious strength training. Put away the tiny vinyl dumbbells and step up to the squat rack! Compound lifts such as squats, deadlifts, and lunges, work to replace fat with lean muscle mass.

When you're not lifting, mix things up with different types of cardiovascular exercise. High-intensity interval training (HIIT) improves aerobic capacity, sprinting and explosive plyometric movements burn calories faster, and circuit workouts keep things interesting as you move from one exercise to another.
Vanna shares her favorite workouts on her Instagram @vannabelt, turning her own hours in the gym into inspiration for her followers.

Vanna’s products are formulated to achieve measurable results. “I know how frustrating it is to do everything right and be left with skin flaws. I wanted to create a product which rewards people for their hard work in the gym and the kitchen. Gel-V works alongside healthy diet and exercise, so my customers can see the results they want and deserve.”

About Vanna Belt
Vanna Belt skin care and weight loss solutions show customers the secret to the South Beach body. The company was founded in 2013 by social media fitness enthusiast and Miami native Jovanna Correa. Vanna's products have already provided real results and changed the lives of many women around the world.

Tejal Kaji of TJK Coaching to be Featured on CUTV News Radio

WEST HARRISON, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, December 10, 2018 / — Exemplary leaders are categorically necessary in order to run organizations and businesses effectively. But many people in middle management may lack the skills, self-assuredness, and conviction to qualify for a position to run things effectively and efficiently. How can they advance if they are not quite competent or experienced to become fit leaders?

Tejal is an outstanding Leadership coach and Human Resource Consultant.

“My focus is working with men and women, generally in middle management,” says Tejal. “With my coaching they can effortlessly acquire the skills and find their voice. Which will give them the much needed confidence to step into pivotal leadership roles and empower them to achieve success.”

Prior to starting in her coaching work, Tejal began her career as a social worker mentoring troubled adolescents. She worked to understand how their behaviors and actions affected their lives and the world around them. She then went on to support adults struggling in the workplace. When she began a position in Human Resources Tejal realized her knack was ideally in coaching when workers continually sought her out with questions about their role at work and how they can communicate effectively with colleagues. She realized her true passion and skill were in managing people and reframing situations to help people achieve the best possible outcome for themselves and their organizations.

“I wholeheartedly enjoy helping people discover their inner greatness,” says Tejal. “Who we are tremendously impacts those around us so we should always leave an indelible and positive impression. It’s extremely gratifying and rewarding encouraging people to discover the leadership qualities within them and experience tremendous overall growth.”

Tejal expertly assists clients who are seeking to advance or make changes in their careers. Through her H.R. consulting work she performs assessments to determine how they interact with others and how others perceive them.

“What makes an exemplary leader is having compassion for your workers,” says Tejal. “Even if one’s job is demanding or grueling if your boss is sympathetic and supportive it motivates employees to be totally productive.”

Tejal’s emphasis is on coaching Senior Level managers and directors since they are the ones stepping into the CEO role and unquestionably require role models. Her one on one coaching and individual sessions are done over Skype or phone and she works with clients for a minimum of 3 months. She also works directly with organizations to help their teams work better together.

According to Tejal, coaching teaches people to be who they are authentically while accepting that they have valuable ideas, viewpoints, and can share them to create effective impact.

“I’m extremely proud to be graced with the natural skills to recognize who people are and help them find their self- confidence,” says Tejal. “It’s absolutely our responsibility to cohesively step into our roles as great leaders and build a more compassionate world.”

CUTV News Radio will feature Tejal Kaji in an interview with Doug Lewellyn on Wednesday December 12th at 2 p.m. EST.

Paralegals must undergo specific education and training, and are utilized by many different employers, explains Mayowa Odusanya in his article.

Mayowa F. Odusanya (N/A:N/A)

The largest employers of Paralegals within the legal profession are, naturally, law firms. However, businesses, corporations and governmental entities are large Paralegal employers as well.”

— Mayowa Odusanya, Florida

BRANDON, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, December 10, 2018 / — Florida-based writer Mayowa Odusanya has published the next article in his four-part series on the paralegal profession. The complete articles will be published on the blog of Mr. Odusanya at

Paralegal Training and Experience

Paralegals are a key component of an efficient law practice, and their role continues to expand. In fact, the job outlook (unlike for many other professions) is quite bright. Paralegals must undergo specific education, training and/or work experience and are utilized by many different employers, including individual practitioners, law firms, corporations and various government agencies. Different certifications and credentials are available to classify the Paralegal experience. In the traditional law firm setting, the Paralegal's time is primarily spent on substantive legal work which is billed to clients at market rates, similar to other professional staff, but at a significantly lower rate than would be charged had an Attorney been solely utilized to handle such work, as was standard in the past. This hourly billing option distinguishes Paralegals from other non-lawyer staff members. However, many legal or quasi-legal organizations do not specifically bill for Paralegal time, such as Real Estate Title Firms, Immigration Law Firms, or Bankruptcy practices. Thus, in many organizations, time spent on administrative or clerical functions is not billable to the client’s case.

Due to Ethical Rules, Paralegals will never completely replace Lawyers

Mr. Odusanya notes that only licensed attorneys may give “legal advice” to clients, and ethical rules in all U.S. States are uniform in that Paralegals are strictly prohibited from doing so. Paralegals also are prohibited from directly accepting a client’s case, setting any fees, or representing a client in court (unless specifically authorized by the court, see below). All U.S. States require attorneys to be licensed and most have regulations imposing strict penalties for anyone who engages in the unauthorized practice of law. In fact, there are rules requiring appropriate supervision of Paralegals.

The largest employers of Paralegals within the legal profession are, naturally, law firms. However, businesses, corporations and governmental entities are large Paralegal employers as well. Paralegals are found in every area of legal practice, ranging from business litigation, bankruptcy law practice, estate planning, personal injury law, immigration, and corporate law. In fact, Paralegals are now common in virtually every legal practice area.

Strong Need for Paralegals Continues

Doomsday talk persisted in the recent past that technology was set to fully replace the Paralegal industry as a result of software upgrades and automated advances. At least one major law firm today uses highly sophisticated software for research previously conducted by Paralegals and even Attorneys. Many predicted the end of the Paralegal profession. The Associated Press issued a report in 2013 which claimed that an increasing number of Attorneys were using software and other technologies to do the work previously performed by Paralegal staff. It is certainly true that such software and technologies can enable solo practitioners to handle most or all of their workload without the need for any Paralegal. However, in 2014 the Bureau of Labor Statistics forecasted a continuing positive growth rate of 8 percent growth from 2014 to 2024, and then in 2016 readjusted that figure to a 15 percent growth from 2016 to 2026 – again documenting continued growth from its original projection.

This information is confirmed by the Occupational Information Network (O*NET), an online database that contains hundreds of occupational definitions to help job seekers, businesses and workforce development professionals to understand educational and occupational trends in today’s economy in the United States. O*NET was developed under the sponsorship of the US Department of Labor/Employment and Training Administration (USDOL/ETA) in the 1990s. According to O*NET, the future outlook for Paralegals is bright, Mr. Odusanya points out.
