5/22 | Conversations - Dry Bones and Revival

Revival is the work of God. We prepare for it, pray for it, call for it but it's God who brings it.

5/20 | Conversations - What We Don’t Know We’re Missing

We're exploring David's song of repentance in Psalm 51. Often, in our sin, not only do we not realize how badly we've messed up but we don't realize how much we're not experiencing God's presence. David's words in Psalm 51 provide a beautiful reminder of God's mercy and renewal.

5/19 | Conversations - How Much Obedience is Enough Obedience?

2 Chronicles 34. Josiah finds a scroll of the Law and realizes they've not been keeping their end of the covenant. What do we learn about revival from a nation who suddenly discovers they've been falling far short of expectations?

5/18 | Conversations - Revival is A Group Project

When you read about revival in Scripture it's often about an entire nation. Rarely is it just a "personal" relationship but a corporate response. Learn a little more about this group approach to revival our of Nehemiah.

Revival | Part Five - Drinking from the Garden Hose

You know that one guy who, when it comes to moving the piano, races to carry the bench? Or the group project where the other students have to redo the work of the one kid who is phoning it in? There is a discipleship version of that - people who want credit while putting in the minimum effort. Jesus says this type of follower makes him sick! In this final letter to the churches in Revelation, we'll explore a devastating but hopeful word to a church that had completely forgotten who they were.

5/15 | Conversations - Culture Isn’t The Bad Guy

It's easy for elements of Christendom to either oppose or adopt whatever culture they're a part of. Jesus at times both defied and acquiesced to culture. He showed that disciples don't define themselves either by conforming or countering culture. Disciples are defined by following Jesus.

5/14 | Conversation - Relativism & Revival

Relativism is the kryptonite to revival. How will we ever feel convicted about truth or sin if we think that truth shifts based on what causes harm or what makes us happy? Today we discuss how this invasive falsehood of relatives infiltrates and undermines our discipleship.

5/13 | Conversations - Repentance vs. Feeling Guilty

Sometimes we let ourselves off the hook because we feel bad for sin but biblical repentance is MUCH more than just feeling guilty.

5/12 | Conversations - The Upside of Shutdown

God has always used negative situations for positive outcomes. Where are the blessings of this current situation?

5/11 | Conversations - Cultural Christianity

This is the first in a series of conversations from our ministry staff about issues, passages, and topics regarding revival and our discipleship. Today we're talking about the idea that our culture still has enough trappings of Christianity that some people feel like they're Christians even when they're not following Christ.

Revival | Part Four | Asleep at the Wheel

The biggest threat to our faith may not be the overt sin or false teaching. The biggest threat may be simple apathy. Our discipleship is on autopilot and we're headed for the ditch and...we're not worried about it. What can we do to get back on track?

Revival | Part Three | See You At The (Moral) Crossroads

We all face crossroads where we have to choose between faithfulness and giving up or giving in. How can we choose the right path when the easy path is so...well...easy?

Revival | Part Two | The Opportunity of Suffering

We all want God to protect us from hardship but what if God has something to teach us that can only be learned through difficulty?

Revival | Part One | First Love

When our faith starts to go on autopilot we want to substitute other, lesser things for the love that should mark every disciple. When Jesus wrote this letter to Ephesus he warned them, a church without love is not a Church of Christ.

The Final Week | Easter and the Ordinary Day

(Watch Online) Disciples know that Easter is special. We know we celebrate the risen Lord. But it's possible to overlook the way that miracle should impact the mundane, average, ordinary moments of our lives.

The Final Week | Confusion and the Cross

(Watch Online) We tend to make the assumption that, if we do good things then good things should happen to us. Christ was faithful to God and every step led him closer to the cross. How is our obedience when we are confused about the results?

The Final Week | The Passover and Living with Uncertainty

(Watch Online) The Passover is a millennia-old festival that is deliberately designed by God to be celebrated in a very specific way. Then Jesus comes along and changes all of that, and teaches us something about how we view the future.

The Rebellious Bible | Part Five | Don’t (just) Read the Bible…

(Watch Online) Scripture doesn't actually teach us to read Scripture...it's much bigger than that!
