God Comes Where He's Wanted 2.0: The Lord's Prayer - Jon Tyson
45:21This Sunday, Pastor Jon continued the "God Comes Where He's Wanted 2.0" series through teaching on the Lord's Prayer - our "secret weapon" in the faith. Over time, Western Christianity has trivialized the Lord's Prayer, diminishing its true value and power in our lives. Now more than ever, we need to reclaim the power of the Lord's Prayer because it teaches us how to pray, orients our discipleship, frees us from the vanity and futility of self, and unleashes defiant hope.

God Comes Where He's Wanted 2.0: Ask, Seek, Knock - Ashley Anderson
47:59This Sunday, Pastor Ashley continued our "God Comes Where He's Wanted 2.0" series by taking a closer look at Luke 11 where Jesus exhorts us to ask, seek, and knock. Prayer has less to do with technique, and more to do with who is listening. When we pray, we must remember who we're talking to: God, who is readily available, accessible, and can be "interrupted" at any time.

47:29This Sunday, Pastor Suzy continued our “God Comes Where He’s Wanted 2.0” series by taking a closer look at how Jesus calls us to pray in Luke 11.

God Comes Where He's Wanted 2.0: Cultivating Revival - Jon Tyson
54:04This Sunday, fueled by the urgent movement of God at Asbury University and elsewhere, Pastor Jon dug into the spiritual roots of revival as part of our extended series, “God Comes Where He’s Wanted.” Pointing to King Josiah’s story from 2 Kings and 2 Chronicles as an example, Pastor Jon emphasized our need to repent and draw near to God, tear out sin by the roots, recover the heart of worship and understanding of scripture, and restore redemptive spiritual practices to usher in revival.
God Comes Where He's Wanted 2.0: Asbury Outpouring - Jon Tyson
54:52This Sunday, Pastor Jon taught from his reflections on his time at Asbury University last week. The outpouring of the Holy Spirit in Asbury is a clue that God is doing something, and He is asking us to pay attention. It’s time to lean in with increased devotion, preparing our hearts, and strengthening the walls of our souls to carry the coming glory of revival. We must remember that as God is drawing near to us, He's inviting us to continue to draw near to Him.
God Comes Where He's Wanted: The Cry of the Lord - Suzy Silk
55:55In our final week of ‘God Comes Where He’s Wanted’ Pastor Suzy emphasized the importance of understanding God’s cry for our vital consecration and purity, as we desire and call upon our Holy God in our hearts, homes, church, and region. As King of the universe, we need to seek Him based on His terms, not our own, and we must consecrate our hearts and bodies to His holiness so that the cry of our heart, home, church, and region ushers in the revival we long for.
God Comes Where He's Wanted: The Cry of the Region - Sam Gibson
1:03:42This Sunday, Pastor Sam continued our teaching series, “God Comes Where He’s Wanted” by unpacking the cry for the region through Isaiah 64. He offered three invitations to help us move from complacency, to concern, to crying our for God to intervene and reveal Himself in our region based on the pattern evident in Scripture. We must discern the season we are in, and develop a desperation for God to come have His way in every area of the world around us.
God Comes Where He's Wanted: The Cry of the Church - Lee Cummings
