Fear Of Failure

The church is defined as a spiritual family, with Christ in the center as King, who love God, love others, and make disciples who make disciples. That’s it. You’d be hard-pressed to argue against that definition. AND, notice there is no mention of budgets, buildings, programs, or pastors. There’s nothing wrong with those things. But…

Discipleship – Making Disciples Effectively

As believers, disciple-making is the point of why Jesus came to this earth and died for our sins. It wasn’t so you would attend a church. It wasn’t so you’d be free from problems. It wasn’t so you could just stay out of hell. Christianity is way more about disciple-making than just being saved. There…

Home Church – How To Start One

The definition of a church is this, “a spiritual family, with Christ in the center as King, who love God, love others, and make disciples who make disciples.” Notice there is no mention of buildings, budgets, programs, or pastors. None of those are bad. They just aren’t needed to make disciples effectively. We would love…

Donation Year End Giving Choices

Learn how important it is to give to YouChoose. We have over 2500 people in our churches along with 100 baptisms. And most of that has occurred in the last two years. It’s incredible what God is doing and we hope your year-end giving choices will include YouChoose.Community. Your donation would mean so much to…

The Fear of the Lord – Wisdom

Too often, people try to limit God into some “tame” God who is not threatening. Well, although God is love and cares for us deeply, that does not negate the fact that He is the supreme, all-powerful, creator of the universe. He is to be feared above all things but not in a scary way….

Being Thankful – Gratitude in the Family

It’s never easy facing death, especially when it’s a family member. As my father-in-law struggles with his health, I’ve seen his family carrying out a remarkable display of thanksgiving. It’s quite extraordinary. The legacy of Greg Pitts is something to not only admire, but also emulate. No one likes to deal with death. To wrestle…

Sadness, Grief and Sorrow – The Joy of the Lord is My Strength

Losing a loved one is not a fun topic to discuss. On the 10th anniversary of my dad’s death, I found myself completely decimated by emotions. There is no clear description of the pain one feels when experiencing the loss of a loved one. The ONLY thing that provides comfort is God. Through the power…

Running Against God – Part 3

Jonah was selfish with God’s own provision of his comfort. Jonah wanted the Ninevites to get what they deserved. And Jonah felt that he wasn’t getting what he deserved when God took away the shelter He was providing Jonah. Jonah runs against God because his concerns are not God’s concerns. When we can see what…

Running Against God – Part 2

Jonah was selfish with God’s CHARACTER and MERCY! Jonah was furious when God relented on destroying the Ninevites. We probably would be too if the Ninevites were actually members of Al Qaeda with a leader like Osama bin Laden, Saddam Hussein, or Jeffrey Dahmer. The gospel is for everyone until God wants us to reach…
