I have had many fine teachers in my life. I know… I am blessed. One of the best was James “Buck” Hatch. Alumni of Columbia International University (www.ciu.edu) consider his teaching classic and a foundation for their ministry. There are many free resources in the Buck Hatch Library but let me recommend a great message on DEPRESSION (click here)
This summer I started putting together messages to capture the lessons God has been teaching me over the past year. Click below to download a note taking outline for the three messages. The audio from the chapel talks at Columbia International University http://www.ciu.edu are also provided here. Please give me your feedback as I continue to refine and add other messages to this series.
This was my first time preaching in a church since my medical experience of November. It was delivered at Sandhills Community Church http://www.sandhillschurch.org where Pandora and I worship with Christ followers. Sandhills is a modern style, ethnically diverse congregation in North East Columbia, SC.
God provides gifts that help us grow up in our Christian life. Below you will find a link to the audio of a message given at Raleigh Street Christian Centre in Cambridge, NZ.
This message overviews four gifts God has provided to clarify and then assist us in our spiritual journey. There is a handout that can be downloaded that provides a small group leader with questions to use for four lessons based on the message.
The Gifts Are:
1. The Gift of Questions
2. The Gift of Others to Make the Journey With Us
3. The Gift of Illuminating Truth in our Hearts
4. The Gift of Giving What He Has Given To Us
