I'm sure you've seen (or maybe even have!) the bumper sticker that says "God is my Co-Pilot". How often do we go through situations, even life, with the intention of living the role of the pilot; the one believing we can control everything from the set-up to the outcome? The abundant life, lived in Christ and Christ in us, is all about handing over the control we think we have to The God who knows the beginning from the end! Join Pastor Chris and Destiny Church of Jacksonville as we look at life through the eyes of Hannah and Elkanah.

The Christmas season is upon us, and with it comes no shortage of opportunities to serve! From ringing bells for the Salvation Army to dishing out a hot meal to those who are weary or less fortunate, service is in full swing and in many cases, "in style". But what happens after the good feelings wear off and it starts to look like work? Do we put service away with the rest of our decorations, only to bring them out next year? We are blessed to have so many teachers here at Destiny Church, and our guest teacher Eric Carter gave us a challenging message on what it means to serve. Let this message serve to encourage you to get out of your comfort zone and take a chance on service. You'll be so glad you did!

What do you think it means to have childlike faith? Does it mean to have a simple faith, lacking detail and specificity? Perhaps it refers to humility; making one's self lower than those around us. Whatever ideas you may have on the subject, Pastor Chris gives us another way to look at the idea of having the faith of a child; full of wide-eyed wonder, simplicity and expectancy. Has the cynicism of the world machine worn your spirit down? This message will help you begin to see things from a much better perspective!

Who do you that Jesus is? Destiny Church Elder and guest teacher Elton Brooke challenges us to look deep into our answer to that question. Why do you do the things you do or say the things you say? Is Jesus the motivation behind what you do and say? He can and wants to be that and so much more for you! This is an encouraging and thoughtful message that will help you to have the right answer to life's most important questions.

What drives you to get up each morning? Family? Work? Personal achievement? Not that any of those things are bad, but for a follower of Christ, there's so much more! Dr. Mitch Arbelaez, missionary and today's guest teacher, leads us through some key questions about what motivates us and helps us to discover our role in sharing the Gospel of Jesus to our world.

Series: Reach
Duration: 41 mins 31 secs
We hope you have been blessed and encouraged (and even challenged!) by our "Reach" series. In today's message, the final in the series, Pastor Chris reminds us that we are all called to reach into our culture and show the Love of God to those around us. Maybe you're not sure how to use the dreams and talents that God has planted in you to reach your world, or maybe you're scared to take that first baby step. Wherever you find yourself, listening to this message would be a great place to start!

I'm sure you've noticed them, the "how did we do" questionnaire that is requested of you to complete after every meal out, oil change performed, or online purchase made; all for the purpose of improving service to you, the consumer. Good service is the lifeblood of most every organization or business going today. But have you ever considered how you might fare if others were surveyed to rate your service to your boss, your church, or your family? Would the "one another's" in your life give you 5 stars or two and a half? Today's message, the latest in our series "Reach", takes us right into the deep end of the pool as Pastor Chris offers some challenges as well as solid teaching and encouragement that will help us to improve our service (and example) to The Church, our communities, and our Lord!

Greetings and welcome to our fourth installment of the series, "Reach". In today's message, Pastor Chris uses two illustrations from the book of 2 Kings that deal with the subject of miracles. And although many in our post-modern civilization have discounted the miraculous, we very much believe that our Lord is still doing and wishes to do much more of the miraculous in our midst. But have we made space for Him to move in our situations? Do you trust Him enough to allow for the possibility of a miracle? This message will encourage both the believer and the skeptic to press in and discover the miraculous power of God.

It's no secret that God has the power to change anything in an instant. The Scriptures, both old and new testaments, are quite clear that God has moved miraculously and changed the circumstances of His people. A lot of the time though, it's us that God wants to change so that we have the power to affect our circumstances and the circumstance of those around us. Pastor Ben Chavez is our guest teacher today, and you will be blessed, encouraged, and empowered by this message of hope, especially if you or someone you know is spiritually "stuck". Have you been encouraged by the messages you've heard here? Let us know! Share your story with us at www.destinychurchjacksonville.com/testimonies

Welcome to Destiny Church of Jacksonville and our third installment of the series, "Reach". In the past couple of weeks, we've discussed why it's so important to share our faith with those around us. We've also gone through some of the excuses as to why we don't or won't share. This week, Pastor Chris breaks down the concepts of testimony and witness, words that often strike fear into many Christian hearts because many believers don't understand or believe that they have a testimony worthy of sharing, let alone that they are called to share it with the world. Do you want to have more confidence to understand and tell your God story to others? Then listen in to this timely word!
