He graduated from Moody Bible Institute and joined the staff at New Life in 1998.
Quick survey of some of the emotions of Jesus and an examination of wether our emotions are rooted in selfishness or love.
Romans 12:3b Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. 1) Know your strengths and weaknesses 2) Filter your thinking from a saved perspective 3) Stop making excuses and believe God to transform you!
Part 3 of the Chain Reaction Series. Looking at the details of the resurrection we find the story does not sound like something someone would make up but a real historical event. Also we find encouragement that: 1) God is personal and knows you by name, 2) The Prince of Peace is speaking peace over your life 3) God empowers and entrusts us with a mission
New beginnings and fresh starts

We have a small group on Sunday morning at 9:00 AM that prays for each other and our congregation. All are welcome and prayer makes the difference.
Our emotions play a powerful and important role in our lives. Yet sometimes we find ourselves so wrapped up in our feelings or so overwhelmed that our emotions can get the better of us. In this series Facing Your Feelings, we want to take a deeper look at our emotions and what God has to say about them. We’ll go below the surface to see how what’s happening on the inside affects what happens on the outside and we’ll discover the remedy for overcoming and healing our emotions. You were created to feel deeply, to love others, and to experience true emotions that have a positive change on your life and the people around you. It starts with going to the heart, when we face our feelings and allow God to change us from the inside out.
