It's time to friend up! There are two types of people, those who sit in the balcony and cheer you on and those who live in the basement and try to drag you down. Pastor Jeff Vines teaches us if you want to go far, you need someone in your life who is sitting in the balcony cheering you on. He references the story of Barnabas (Son of Encouragement) who stood by someone no one else would. It was because of Barnabas that the person he invested in changed the world. Use your platform to elevate someone else!
There is no room for prejudice in the church. Pastor Steve Meharg teaches us that God has called everyone to be clean and repent. Therefore prejudice in the church has no place and doesn't belong.
Have you or have you not had a conversion experience? Pastor Jeff Vines teaches us from the story of Paul in the Bible about what it looks like to have a conversion. It is through this life changing conversion that Paul had his eyes opened to the spiritual world around him, simultaneously revealing that he was a worse person than he could ever imagine yet more loved by God than he could ever imagine.
You don't know who's watching you and it only takes one person, the right person, to be impacted by your actions to change the world.

Learn why Stephen's actions changed Saul's heart and the course of the church in this teaching from Pastor Jeff Vines.
Some father's fix up houses but all Father's should build a home. How do you build a home like that? Pastor Mike Breaux shares with us these must have rooms in your home with practical tips on how to build them.
What we should be living for? If Jesus is the foundation for a Christian's life then why are Christians being killed? Jeff Vines teaches how to answer this question by looking at the foundation of our life and how to make sure it's built to last.
There is church in the wild and it's shown in the book of Acts. Pastor Rory Eldridge shows us what a church in the wild looks like. He also gives us some examples of people who are living out what it is to be a church in the wild. For example, DJ Soto who started VR Church and is baptizing VR avatars. Rory reminds us that history makers are rule breakers and that was modeled by Jesus.
Can positive thinking change my life? Pastor Rory Eldridge explains the power of our minds and how our lives reflect what's in our minds. In this teaching he reminds us that "you cant have a positive life with a negative mind." Renew your mind by watching this teaching from Pastor Rory!
We've all experienced seasons where it feels like our world is shaking. Whether it's coming from your finances, your job, or a broken relationship, as Jesus followers we are shaken but not defeated.
