Can God contradict Himself? How well does Satan know the Bible? What’s the best approach to making difficult decisions? This week, Pastor Jeff and Jordan discuss decision making and mentor relationships.
Have you ever thought you knew better than God what next step you should take? Chances are good that, if you have lived long enough, you have tried your own way over and against God’s way, and it didn’t work out too well. That happened to the tribe of Dan, and we want to help our graduating seniors avoid it happening in their lives. Join us this Sunday as we celebrate graduates’ achievements and encourage them (and us) to trust and...
What can we learn from Mary, the mother of Jesus? How did the family of Jesus receive His ministry? Is there a lesson in the differing responses Gabriel had to questions from Zechariah and Mary? Following Mother’s Day, Pastor Jeff and Jordan examine the Bible’s testimony about the faithfulness of Mary.
One of the most wonderful gifts God has given us is the gift of mothers. On this Mother’s Day, we look back to Mary, the mother of Jesus, who teaches us that the heart of a godly mother can truly find rest in God.

How do we instill faith in our children and grandchildren? What does it require of us? How should we assess our own spiritual journeys? Pastor Jeff and Jordan examine instructions given by Moses and Joshua about communicating salvation to the next generation.
When the time came for God’s people to pass over the Jordan River and take possession of the Promised Land, God instructed them to set up a memorial that would help them remember all the amazing things God had done for them as He brought His promise to fulfillment. In the same way, God instructs us to remember His mighty works in our own lives, so that we can find rest in His faithfulness and encourage future generations to do the ...

As Pastor Jeff continues traveling the Holy Land, Executive Pastor David Tooley leads a special service on how to prepare for any storm.
Are you dealing with a “storm” in your life? In Matthew 7:24-27, Jesus concludes his Sermon on the Mount with instructions on how the wise person prepares for life’s storms and how to avoid being the fool. Let’s listen to Jesus, practice what He teaches, and develop a foundation that is prep...
Did the resurrection of Jesus literally happen? Can it be proven as a historical fact? Why do many scholars doubt? Pastor Jeff and Jordan discuss the resurrection and explore how important it is to believe Jesus bodily rose from the grave.
In our final installment of the “Jesus Is…” series, we’ll learn with Jesus’ disciples how He enlightens us so that we can embrace the full and abundant life He gives.

Dig deeper into Christ's final days before His crucifixion. Join Jordan Upton for Jewish insights into the Gospel accounts of Holy Week events, using Zechariah 9 as a framework for understanding the triumphal entry, the cleansing of the Temple, and the Olivet Discourse prophecies of the second coming.
Was the donkey from the triumphal entry set apart in the six days of creation? Is prophecy from the Olivet Discourse proven true by the writings of Josephus? How do we respond to tragedy? In this episode, Pastor Jeff asks Jordan the questions as they explore themes from this year’s Holy Week teachings.
When Jesus entered Jerusalem on that first Palm Sunday, most everyone misunderstood what He was doing. They thought He was coming into Jerusalem to establish God’s physical kingdom on the earth, but Jesus did not come to bring an earthly kingdom—yet. He came first to establish God’s spiritual reign upon the earth, and to make the way for all people to enter the Kingdom of God by way of His cross and resurrection. Join us this Su...
Who were the Pharisees? Why was Jesus so harsh with them? What is the parable of the prodigal son really saying? This week, Pastor Jeff and Jordan share about the Jewish religious sects of the Second Temple Era, the definition and danger of hypocrisy, and the importance of loving your neighbor.
In His most famous parable, Jesus taught us how God welcomes both the prodigal and the self-righteous to turn away from their sin and come home to Him. Join us as we see how Jesus welcomes sinners still today.

One of the kindest things anyone can do is to warn others when disaster is ahead. Jesus, in His great love for us, did exactly that. He still does. Join us as we hear Jesus’ ever-timely warnings and heed them for our good.
