Making a Spiritual Growth Plan for 2021
You will not grow by accident. To have the blessed life that Jesus spoke about in the Sermon on the Mount, we must follow Him on the path of discipleship. We must keep growing.

December 7, 2020
Intro to the Sermon on the Mount
Matthew 5-7 archives the greatest sermon in the history of the world. As Jesus gathered His growing followers together, He taught a simple yet thorough overview of how Kingdom citizens should live. Christianity is more than a mere association of rules, but it is a complete dedication to a countercultural lifestyle.

The Power of Humility
When it comes to governmental leadership, we often believe that most is accomplished through some type of conquering force. Jesus was a different type of King and set up a different kind of Kingdom.
41:08
November 16, 2020
The Ending of Hostility
As the United States continues to further the philosophical divide, the greatest point of conflict has to do with how all citizens respond to God. As all nations rage against God, He has a sovereign plan to deal with every single one.
32:17
November 9, 2020
The Changing of Majority
While the standard of morality within the United States continues to drift, Christians are left facing a different spiritual landscape. With the changing of the majority's beliefs, we must adapt to ensure biblical faithfulness in rebellious times.
41:02
November 2, 2020
The Slide of Morality
Our culture changes the standard of what is acceptable by the year. As our culture moves further from biblical morality, the church must clarify the ideal and define our approach.
43:08
October 26, 2020
The Loss of Civility
With growing political animosity, authorities and citizens alike have discarded common civility. As tempers flare, insults fly, and resistance increases, Christians must stand out as people who can disagree respectably.
39:42
October 19, 2020
The Pressure of Popularity
With increasing pressure to fall into particular political camps, how are Christians supposed to navigate faithfully? We cannot give in to any cultural system, no matter how widely accepted it is, if it contradicts the truths of Scripture.
48:22
October 12, 2020
The State of Disunity
As we navigate this contentious election season, how are Christians supposed to respond? In light of the state of disunity within the United States of America, disciples of Jesus must prove themselves to be different from society.
39:37
October 5, 2020
Crucifixion
While Jesus' death seemed like a shocking defeat to his followers, the crucifixion of Christ was God's plan all along. By studying the context of the event, we can understand what Jesus truly accomplished.
38:11
June 14, 2020
Associations
Jesus' ministry was framed around his association with two critical groups of people: sinners and self-righteous. To understand these complex dynamics reveals the nature of Jesus' approach.
32:34
June 7, 2020
Disciples
Jesus' calling of the disciples displayed the attribute of grace. When you look at this unique group of men he chose, there isn't anything special about them. They weren't obvious choices, and yet, they were Jesus' choices. Due to that reason, they would develop into what Christ had called them to be.
51:52
May 29, 2020
Ministry
Jesus’ ministry only lasted three years, but the effect of it has completely changed history. In studying the critical components of his ministry, we can better ascertain the purpose for which he came.
54:44
May 24, 2020
Preparation
Between the birth of Jesus and the beginning of his ministry, little is known about his life. The gospel authors reported very sparse details, but what we do know provides great insight into his preparation for the ministry.
54:58
May 17, 2020
Incarnation
The New Testament begins with the incarnation of Jesus Christ. God came in the flesh to rescue us.
1:01:53
May 4, 2020
The 4 Gospels

36:50

56:38

Enjoying Your Blessings

59:25

Preparing Your Budget
If you don’t make a plan for how you use your finances, someone or something else will make a plan for you. Preparing a budget shows you are a responsible steward with what God has entrusted to you.
59:13
January 13, 2020
Balancing Your Finances
We tend to polarize financial convictions, but the Bible provides surprising wisdom to obtain balance. If we learn God’s financial perspective, we will benefit from obeying biblical practices.
57:53

Implementing Discipleship
Even though you haven’t implemented the entire Distinctive Discipleship process yet, hopefully, you are already beginning to see some growth. In this last session, you will put all the pieces together and initiate your plan. While you have experienced progress, now it is time to define your distinctive strategy which you will use for the months to come.
48:08
October 7, 2019
Initiating Discipline
Paul described his work in discipleship as something for which he toiled (Col. 1:29). If that sounds like work to you, it is because spiritual disciplines require consistent, diligent effort on your part. In Session 6 of Distinctive Discipleship, you are going to select the most vital spiritual discipline to strengthen at this time in your life. You will determine which one is best for your soul’s health and get to work on it this very day. This discipline will begin to train the habits necessary for your discipleship.
47:52

Clarifying Development
In what ways do you need development? It all depends upon what you have been given and where you have been placed. As particularly gifted and positioned disciples, we each should pursue the needed maturity to do what God has called us to accomplish.
48:38
September 16, 2019
Strengthening Doctrine
Are you confident in the fundamentals of your faith? Maybe the better question is, do you believe what you believe? As a follower of Jesus, you have a set of doctrinal beliefs that come along with the territory. Biblical Christianity is blatant on topics in which the culture will struggle to accept. In Session 4 of Distinctive Discipleship, we are going to hone in on 1-2 doctrinal concepts that you need to study next.
56:04
September 9, 2019
Discovering Delight
Distinctive Discipleship is all about discovering delight. If we can truly comprehend that the fullness of God dwelt in Christ (Col. 1:19), and now the fullness of Christ dwells in us (Col. 1:27), it should cause us to become overwhelmed with a joy that energizes our desire to take advantage of that blessed nearness.
49:47
September 2, 2019
Confronting Disobedience
There is a sin or a few sins that easily entangle you. While we all can struggle with every possible sin imaginable, there are certain sins with which we regularly drift. In Session 3 of Distinctive Discipleship, we are going to narrow down a list of sins to the 1-3 areas which are critical for you to address right now.
58:19
September 2, 2019
Evaluating Distinction
Generalized approaches can never adequately address distinct disciples. In order to see legitimate discipleship take place in your life and in the lives of those around you, we cannot depend upon widespread methods hoping to address the specific needs of everyone.
