Rural Resource – Balance Beam Video

Each Monday on the Rural Ministry Blog I post a book review, article link, website link, video, or any other type of resource that I think would be of interest to the Rural Ministry community.

Today’s Rural Resource is a video clip from Francis Chan called Balance Beam.  In this video Francis challenges us to stop playing it safe.  This is a real issue in Rural Ministry.  Way too often we go with what’s safe instead of doing what will make the most impact in the Kingdom of God.  You can watch the video here:


This video makes a great sermon illustration or discussion starter.  To download it  simply go to and paste the URL into the download box.  After about 45 seconds the download links will appear.  My suggestion would be to right click on the .MP4 link and choose “save as.”  Once you have downloaded the video you can convert it to any other video format by using the Any Video Converter software featured in this Freebie Friday article.

What do you think about Francis’ message?  In what areas are you currently playing it safe?  Leave a comment below.
