BBP Episode #80

With over 37 years of full time pastoral experience, Pastors Duane and Sue Sheriff have plenty of life lessons to share. As the founding pastors of “Victory Life Church”, which has grown into a large, multi-site, church network in the Texas and Oklahoma area, and as authors, teachers, and public speakers, the Sheriff’s have been a bright and encouraging light to an entire generation of parents.

When asked what they hoped to accomplish, this was their reply; “We desire to share the truth in love and help others discover who they are in Christ.” All together they have raised four kids, nine + grandchildren and thousands upon thousands of spiritual children during the past four decades of their ministry.

Hosts of the well attended “Jubilee Conference” at Victory Life, and author of “Identity Theft” these two seasoned parents and pastors have a wealth of valuable knowledge and practical insight every parent should hear. Their teaching on understanding our Identity and parenting is a ‘must listen’ for parents who are struggling or discouraged.

Notes & Quotes from our Interview:

“Sin is when our relationship with God goes horizontal instead of vertical, and always leads to ‘Identity’ issues.”

“We can’t get our identity mixed up with our performance. If so, we’ll feel like a failure or condemned’.

“Our primary role as parents…is to lead our kids to Christ’

“We can’t fix ourselves, let alone our kids. Our responsibility is to reflect the glory of God in a tangible way”

“We can’t control the outcomes but we can share the truth in love”

“We need to be careful to NOT identify with the sin in our lives and let it become our identity”
