    Overcomer
    what do you allow to define you?


    Many people feel they are less than who God says they are. We get our identity from our careers, our political positions, our roles in the family, and a number of other lesser things. However, what is most true about us is that we are made by a God who loves us, and the gospel can bring us into a relationship with Him. When we understand who God is, we more fully understand who we are. Based on the film, featuring movie clips.

    The End Of Me
    where real life in the upside-down ways of Jesus begins


    Are you sometimes perplexed with Jesus’s teaching? Do you really want what he wants? Bestselling author Kyle Idleman reveals that the key to the abundant life Jesus promised lies in embracing His inside-out way of life. Examining Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount, Kyle unpacks the many counter-intuitive truths, including: brokenness is the way to wholeness, mourning is the path to blessing, and emptiness is required in order to know true fullness. Ultimately you will discover how Jesus transforms you as you begin to live out these paradoxical principles.

    Praying in the Spirit


    The Bible says, “It not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD (Zech 4:6)… No man can come to God unless the Spirit draw him (John 6:44)… Those who are led by the Spirit are the sons of God (Rom 8:14).”  The key to the Apostle Paul’s ministry is found in 1 Thess. 1:5. In this study, John Hicks, will help us see Jesus model for us, “How to walk in the Spirit and to hear the Father.”  It is in the atmosphere of prayer that the Holy Spirit nurtures and develops our faith and redirects our wills.

    Common Man | Uncommon Life

    God created us to be courageous, honorable, and to fight with valor. We long for adventure, but somewhere along the way we’ve settled for less. Join us as we feature a group of common men that have chosen to be set apart and live by a code. They are the US Navy SEALs. Their ethos is filled with honor, discipline, integrity, responsibility, and courage. Engage with an extraordinary group of Navy SEALs in this 7 week group as they tell us how they’ve chosen to be set apart in a different way—as followers of Jesus. We’ll hear stories of peril, bravery, and adversity as we dig deeply into the Bible to discover timeless principles that will help all men step into the life God has for them.

    The Conquer Series

    According to recent studies, 68% of men in church view pornography. More men fall prey to hell’s master plan, where intimacy is destroyed and real masculinity is forfeited for fleeting pleasure. At first we reason… “It’s not so bad; most men do it; who’s going to know? It’s not like I won’t be able to stop; I’m not changed; It won’t impact my job, my wife, my family.” And then we get trapped. This academy seminar will explore four things we need to know about our battle for purity, and preview a post-conference men’s group that will lay out practical battle strategies for how to prevail.
