||Gideon's Journey: Fear, Courage, and Resolve||Eric Johnson continues his series on Judges. Like Gideon, God has designed you to deliver nations and set people free. When we remove an idol, we must establish true worship in its place. This is key for driving the enemy out of the land–completely!||8/30/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Don't Get Stuck in a Sentence||Eric Johnson teaches on greatness from Judges and explains how each of us has a story that is great. You have a story that needs to be lived and needs to be told. Every one of us has a sense we're called to something more, it's in our DNA and it's the way God made us. You're designed to go forward!||8/23/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Finding Your Song||Bill Johnson teaches from 2 Chronicles 20 when God delivers King Jehoshaphat and Judah from their enemies. When we find ourselves in trouble, we're to run to the Lord, recount our history with Him, and receive a fresh word. This culminates in God giving us a new song and as we sing, He sets ambushes and secures our victory!||8/16/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Lostologist||God's obsessed with the lost! Christine Caine shares how we must be passionate for what God's passionate for or we'll miss what life's about. Jesus came to seek and save that which was lost and he sends his Church into the world to do exactly what He did. As Christians, we ought to be lostologists!||8/9/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||The Broken Pieces Between the Miracles||Christine Caine speaks on the story of Jesus feeding the five thousand. God isn't asking us to do everything, he's asking us to give what we have. It's not about what I'm not or what I don't have, it's about who He is!||8/9/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Poseyendo la Promesa||Dios tiene promesas para cada uno de nosotros que impactarán al mundo a nuestro alrededor. Cual es la razón entonces por la que tan pocos creyentes apropian las promesas que Dios tiene para ellos? Christine Caine nos comparte como vivir no solamente libertados en el desierto, sino libres en la tierra prometida.||8/9/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Possessing the Promise||God has promises for each and every one of us that will impact the world around us. But why do so few believers truly step into the promises God has for them? Christine Caine shares how to live not just delivered in the wilderness, but free in the promised land.||8/9/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Commission and Promotion||Bill Johnson uses Acts 13 to emphasize ministering to the Lord without an agenda. It's in those quiet times God births significant things in our hearts, things that face opposition in order to come into full fruition. You were born for something that's on the other side of your greatest opposition!||8/2/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Cultures That Cultivate World Changers||Kris Vallotton speaks on a culture of encouragement. In the New Testament we see Barnabas encouraging Paul who in turn encourages Timothy. It's vital to surround ourselves with people who believe in us.||7/26/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||The Power of Trust||Bill Johnson leads an intimate study of Proverbs 3:5-12. In these verses we're commanded to trust, fear and honor the Lord. We are designed to bear much fruit and these verses show us how!||7/19/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Spaces and Places||Eric Johnson encourages us to be intentional about our time and to create memorable moments and time apart. Being too busy and distracted can rob us of quality of life and keep us from facing things we need to deal with. Like the Lord Jesus, who carved out precious time alone or with His disciples on mountaintops, we will be refreshed and more ready to give if we set aside a special time and place in our lives for tranquility. And like Solomon, who hosted the Queen of Sheba, we will be able to bring others into the atmosphere that we have created.||7/12/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Fathering a Generation||Eric Johnson teaches on having a father's heart towards people. Fathers are present, focused, inclusive, encouraging and authentic. As children of God we have a responsibility to show the love of our Father to our fellow man!||7/5/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Prayer Strategies||Bill Johnson teaches us how to pray for our country. We need voices of truth who will not be intimidated by the political or religious spirit. It's time to restore righteousness to our land!||6/28/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Releasing Fathers; Revealing the Father||Paul Manwaring addresses five lies that prevent men from being the fathers God's called them to be. Our life assignment, like Jesus, is to reveal the Father by being a son. Regardless of gender or role, we have the privilege of being His children and of revealing Him as the perfect Father.||6/21/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Understanding the Scriptures: Part 1||Kris Vallotton sheds light on how believers are to relate to the Word of God. It's important that we hold each truth in tension, live on the proceeding word of God, and build precept upon precept. The point of reading the Bible is to come into a relationship with the Author and join His ministry of redemption and reconciliation!||6/14/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Redefining Success||Candace Johnson speaks on the elements of success. Success looks like love, generosity, stewardship, gratitude, excellence and obedience as well as living powerfully and partnering with truth. We can do all things through Christ who strengthens us!||6/7/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||The Gospel of Power||Kris Vallotton preaches on the gospel of power. In the book of Acts, we see that the early church needed the baptism of the Holy Spirit in order to be witnesses of Jesus throughout the world. Jesus always intended for us to do greater works than Him! In order to do that, let's believe and step out in faith.||5/31/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Worship: The War of Peace||Bill Johnson explains the sacrificial nature of praise and thanksgiving. Scripture says that we enter His courts through gates of praise. When we praise the Lord even when it's difficult, even when the breakthrough has not yet arrived, we give Him an offering that becomes an access point into His presence. Let's go through the gates!||5/24/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Worship: Faith, Freedom, and Work||Eric Johnson and Jeremy Riddle share their insights into the the key role that faith plays in our worship to the Lord. Faith isn't simply mental acceptance of theological ideas, rather it has a physical expression in our actions. Faith is central to worship because without it, we cannot please God. Let's step out of fear and into faith as we worship God in spirit and truth!||5/17/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Worship: The Postures of Praise||Brian and Jenn Johnson teach on the lifestyle of worship. They encourage us to engage in the different postures of praise that are found in the Bible. Just like King David, we are invited to find God's heart and develop an affectionate connection with Him. We are becoming like the One we worship!||5/10/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
||Worship: The Supreme Call||Bill Johnson begins a new series on worship. We are designed to respond to God's presence with worship, and as we do so, we are continually transformed into the likeness of Jesus. Thanksgiving and praise are necessary sacrifices, but in worship, we ourselves are the living sacrifices! God is looking for worshippers; will you be one of them?||5/3/2015||Free||View In iTunes|
