How a Conflict Advances Mission

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: conflict, Grace, mission

The good, the bad, and the ugly is revealed in the early church throughout Acts. This included conflict and disagreement. In #3 of 4, “Messy People, Faithful Church,” consider everyday applications for navigating personal differences while staying on mission.

Prayer Still shakes the heavenlies

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: intercession, victory, warfare

Despite earnest prayer, life may remain incredibly hard. Is it just coincidence or might an unseen spiritual battle be raging? Consider takeaways from Daniel how a spiritual battle was won in the heavenlies because of persevering prayer.  Text: Daniel 10: 1-19

The Little Dipper and a Big God

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: Obedience

Many times, what God asks of us may make little sense. However, even in the simple asks of God, obedience makes way for God’s best. Consider how a simple ask of God required the “all in” obedience of a powerful military man.  Text: 2 Kings 5:1-14

The Squeeze of the narrow way

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: committment, cost, Faithfulness, risk

The way of Jesus will “squeeze” all who choose to walk its narrow path. Yet, often times, the squeeze comes unexpectedly. In 2021, the squeeze is very real. Consider necessary applications to faithfully navigate the path of Christ.  Text: Mark 10:32-45

Grounded!

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: grounded

Being grounded is often result of discipline or mechanical failure. In matters of faith, however, to be grounded is a good thing. In a loud and disorienting world, consider needed safeguards to ensure our faith and witness is grounded.  Text: Proverbs 6:12-23

Unbroken & Whole

Speaker: Brian Martin
Topics: courage, Holy Spirit, Upper Room, wisdom

“Full of faith and the Holy Spirit” introduces us to Stephen and martyrdom quickly follows. What was the Holy Spirit doing? Consider the power of witness and radical faithful obedience which the Holy Spirit yet calls the church.

Text: Acts 6:1-15; 7:54-6
