The Bible is arguably the most sexual book in the world. The Bible also vividly displays a glorious and sometimes sordid history to find relational meaning and identity through our sexuality. But what does God have to say on the matter and how do we live out our Christian spirituality as part of our sexuality?
As Paul concludes years of missional work in Asia minor, he sums up what its all been about and gives a few thoughts on life in Christ and the power of the blood of Jesus. Blood is an interesting metaphor in the scripture and if we are honest a bit odd and hard to understand, […]
We live in a world that is moving way too fast. Few of us have any margin to slow down and enjoy the best of life. In this talk Pastor Adam Stadtmiller looks at the restful culture of heaven and gives some biblical perspectives on slowing down.

In this message I talk about how to effectively communicate the gospel to a wide variety of people no matter their background.
What does a Cyborg from the future and being filled with the Holy Spirit have to do with each other? The answer is found in how we show up before God? Do we, like the Teminator show up naked and free from our otherworldly attachments or do we come to God with a bunch of […]
I’m amazed at Jesus insistence on using broken and hurting people to become his standard bearers. Stephen was an avg. guy who God called into glory. Today’s world is changing. What will it take to go forward in the same spirit of fullness that Stephen walked in? Click here to find out!
