He leads us in worship almost every week. He regularly pours his heart, his time, and his resources into the church, loving and leading people with intention and grace. But there is a story most of you don’t know. Join us this week at Revive as we hear a powerful message from Andrew Estes. Learn firsthand about the forgiveness and restoration Andrew found in Christ Jesus, evidenced with his bride and through the Bride. You don’t want to miss it!
Every Sunday morning at Revive, the service begins with “Your story is welcome here!” However, if the only story you are familiar with is your own, you may instead hear a whispering doubt: “Every story is welcome here…except yours.” Your story is too messy. It’s too complicated and it’s filled with a whole lot of ugly that most people just can’t handle. What would people think if they really knew and what could God possibly do with it, anyway? “This is Me” is a 5-week series detailing the stories of five different people from all walks of life who chose to let God take control of the chaos. Be prepared to get messy and to get real because…THIS IS ME!
This week we will examine the state of the church. We will take an in-depth look at church multiplication and why church planting today is as important as it was during the 1st century. How can we move forward, and be the church that God wants us to be?
We have heard it in movies, sitcoms and even in our own homes… “Don’t kill the messenger!” But what happens if they do kill the messenger?

If you have ever been in the delivery room at the hospital, you know it can be a crazy place. You will see different people doing different things, but all with one goal… to deliver a healthy baby. The birth of the church was no different. It was started by crazy individuals all with different gifts and talents but with one goal, to bring life into the world. Listen as we look at the birth of the church and how we can learn from its very beginnings.
Most things in life begin before they officially start. There is a foundation to be laid, a team to build and lots of planning involved with most any project we begin. The church is no different. Jesus was preparing for the church from the moment he began his ministry.
God doesn’t always change your circumstances, but often times he will change your perspective. This is the game changer in life because we see things differently, you can live differently. Listen as we learn how to embrace God during the seasons in the valley and find Hope In The Dark!
We all think it will be someone else’s problem. That all of that stuff is for other people to experience and go through. But then it happens – to you! Who do you tell? What do you say? Join us this Sunday for a very powerful first hand message from Hannah Lightfoot and find out how God is using her story to help others.
Our high paced world has conditioned us to expect everything in life to come immediately. Fast food, high speed internet, and Amazon Prime guarantee things fast… no waiting. Evidently God didn’t get the memo that everything needs to happen on our timeline. He knows what many of us have forgotten, that sometimes, we need to wait. Listen as we continue our series Hope In The Dark and discuss what to do, in the waiting.

We don’t know his name but he was the last person on earth that Jesus spoke to before dying on the cross. The conversation was brief, but the impact would last eternity. Listen as we conclude our One Hit Wonders series by taking a closer look at… The Other Cross.

When I was a kid, I hated going to the doctor. It seemed no matter what illness I had, it was inevitably going to be met with a needle in my backside. In life, sometimes what we need is not always what we want. Join us this week as we look at the life of Naaman and discover how God works when we travel the road most necessary instead of the path we desire.
Her occupation was prostitution. Her tale is one of beauty from ashes. Her faith renewed her family tree from certain destruction to being grafted into the lineage of Jesus. And her story is but one thread in a vast tapestry that God is weaving throughout history. Join us this week as we rediscover the transformation from harlot to heroine. Her name is Rahab.
Many bands throughout history have had that one hit… that one song that went straight to the top of the charts. Because of that one hit wonder, they will be known forever in the music world. The Bible also has some one hit wonders. Those obscure people mentioned in one story, oftentimes overlooked and seldom celebrated, but who made an impact that will last for all eternity. In this series, we will study some of those amazing people and discover how their part in God’s redemptive story can impact our lives today.
A common first fight among engaged couples is when they sit down at the table and begin the process… writing out the guest list. Pre-wedding wars have broken out simply over who is invited to the wedding and who is not. She feels strongly about her friends and family and he feels strongly about his side. The same can be said if we made out a guest list for heaven. Who would you invite? More importantly, who would you want to make sure didn’t get an invitation? Listen as we conclude our series on Jonah and look closely at Heaven’s Guest List.
As a parent, there is nothing I wouldn’t do for my children. They mean the world to me because they are mine. But when it comes to other people’s children, what would I be willing to do for them? You guessed it, not as much! This view is not only common with parents, but also how we view certain people in the world. Those people don’t deserve the love, forgiveness and grace of God… they deserve something else. Listen as we look at the power and extent of God’s love and what happens when the King gets off the throne.
It’s something no one wants to do or acknowledge. Most of us were raised believing it shows weakness and failure. Yet, for anyone who chooses to follow after God, it is crucial to living the life He desires for you. Find out what this one thing is as we continue our series through Jonah.
The story is famous inside and outside of the church. When you learned it as a child, your imagination ran wild as you tried to visualize it in your head. But for many of us, the only version of this story we retain is what we learned on the flannelgraph so many years ago. In this series, we are going to take the story of Jonah beyond the flannelgraph and discover it’s full of grown up lessons.
