Have you ever been in a valley, lush with trees and grasses and beams of glorious sunlight streaming down the hillsides through the wispy afternoon clouds? Well, this message is not about that kind of valley. This is the valley where the clouds and trees conceal the light, the mountains fold in and over and it's just getting darker. Most of us have been in a place like that at least once in our lives, and might even still be there. If that's you, or someone you know, Pastor Chris has some great news for you! Join us as we learn that the valley, as hard a place as it may be, is really a place of breakthrough. A time of building and growth. So look up and get ready for a revival!

It's no secret that, as a culture, we're in a bit of a tailspin. Right is seen as wrong and vice-versa. The love of self and pleasure is taking priority over loving God and our neighbor and there are countless other examples to note. So what do we do and where do we go? In this landmark new series {re}, Pastor Chris offers encouragement and instruction about getting serious with God and seeing Him move on this nation in love and power. Yes, these are some dark times, but know that we are ripe for revival! If you're ready to see The Spirit move and the Church come alive, by all means, please pray and join us for this series. It all starts with you!

Do you know what your defaults are? When things are going great, when you're under pressure, when you are tempted, when you worship? What are those go-to attitudes or responses? What about when you're waiting on God? If you take some time to consider it, you may surprised at what you find. Do you feel like you've missed God's best or like you've been waiting on your purpose forever? Our guest teacher Christian Brown shares a timely and relevant message that you do not want to miss.

Greetings and welcome to our final installment of the series "God of The Underdogs". As usual, Pastor Chris saved the best for last! Do you ever find yourself in the "betweens" of life? In a good job, but not the dream job you've been preparing for. Full of potential, but rarely called-on. Maybe even called by God for a great work, but still waiting for the door to open. In between is not a bad place to be, and Pastor Chris gives us some great examples and practical wisdom to help get all that you can out these seasons so that you can be fully equipped when God says go! We hope this series has encouraged and empowered you. We would love to hear how God is working through this ministry and in your lives.

David was, to say the least, a multi-faceted character: Leader, warrior, worshiper, friend, musician, king, adulterer, murderer and father (to name a few). But ultimately, he is known as a man after God's own heart. What you may not realize is that he got his start as an underdog; overlooked by his own father when destiny came calling, and underestimated by his enemy in one of the most retold stories of all time. Follow along as Pastor Chris unpacks David's amazing story. You may find that your story just might look like his more than you think! We are so glad you've chosen to join us for this series "God of The Underdogs". If you have been impacted by this ministry, we would love to hear from you!

When you think of Moses, what comes to mind? Something akin to a Biblical superstar as the deliverer of the Israelites? How about murderer or fugitive or shepherd or wanderer? However you view Moses' life, Pastor Chris shows us that he was a lot like us, with questions, doubts, and fears. He truly lived the life of an underdog until God got his attention and Moses' obedience opened the door for one of the greatest events in human history. This message is for anyone who needs encouragement to take the steps away from the current holding pattern into God's adventure. Who knows what's on the other side of your simple act of obedience!

Welcome to the 4th installment of our series "God of The Underdogs". In today's study, Pastor Chris finds our "underdog" in the story of Jacob and Esau. Like Jacob, many in our culture are stuck in the "me first" life, and like Esau, many fall prey to poor, short-sighted decisions. Maybe you or someone you know is caught up in striving for identity and success at any cost. Maybe more is simply never enough. If you struggle with a terminal "me first" life and an unsatisfying identity, take heart! God can give you a new name! Thanks for joining us today. We sincerely hope that you are blessed by this ministry.

Greetings and welcome from all of us at Destiny Church of Jacksonville! This is our 3rd message from the series "God of The Underdogs", and although the title may remind you of a movie and a song, Pastor Chris would rather talk to you about your past. It's one of the things that we all have, and many are in bondage to it; allowing the past to define the present and limit the future. If your life hasn't quite turned out like you dreamed it would, this may be one of the most important messages you'll ever hear, so grab your Bible and journal and listen in for the next few minutes.

There are many stories in The Bible that begin with an underdog and end with God revealing Himself on behalf of His People. Last week we studied the life of Gideon and learned that God honors the humble and will move mightily on our behalf if we will trust Him. This week, appropriately, as it is Mother's Day, we look at the story of Esther and learn that regardless of circumstances, we must always choose God's Truth and obey The Spirit as He leads us to love in an ever-polarizing world, even if it is unpopular or controversial. If you're sitting on the fence of a decision or can't seem to muster the courage to do what's right, Pastor Chris will encourage you with this message of hope and redemption. Thank you for taking some time out of your day to share with us.

Most of us know what it's like being the last one picked for the team, or being passed over for a promotion, or even passed over for a scholarship or recognition. Popular culture often dictates the circumstances that determine winners and losers and those criteria can change on a moment's notice. But God sees things differently; from a heavenly perspective, and in this new series, "The God of the Underdogs", Pastor Chris explores the notion that God does choose us, sometimes for extraordinary tasks, even though the world may have written us off as weaklings, losers and as we see in the life of Gideon, the least of the least! We hope these messages encourage you and strengthen your faith and Christian walk and it is our honor to serve you. Have you been blessed by this ministry? Let us know!
