Ministry of the Spirit

Discovering His Treasure in Our Jars of Clay

When we begin to truly understand the beauty of what it means to be carriers of the Presence of God, it begins to change how we view the world and all the challenges it brings. Together we will explore how this reality impacted the lives of many in scripture and how it can also do the same not only in our own lives today, but also in the lives of all those around us.

Wholeness & Inner Healing

Bringing Calm to a Turbulent Mind

It is natural to assume that there is ’nothing we can do’ about the disquiet of our minds apart from to change our circumstances. However, the Bible attests to the truth that our circumstances do not automatically dictate our emotions. This practical talk explores what it means to ‘seek peace and pursue it’.
