The word “wilderness” is defined as a desert place; a place uncultivated or lived in; a state of disorder. Wildernesses are places of difficulties, pressures, insufficient resources, and oppositions.

John 3:252-25

Lesson 6 - The Discouragement Test

1 Kings 19:1-2

At some point in life, everyone will face discouragement. Whether we're afraid, fatigued, frustrated, forsaken, or feel like a failure, we must remember that, even in our trails, God is always there for us. It's how we deal with discouragement that determines our successes, failures, and the amount of blessings God will pour out. [ read more...]

Lesson 7 - The Misunderstanding Test

Luke 19:10-10

Everyone will be misunderstood at some point in his or her life. How one deals with misunderstandings reveals one's character, maturity, and ability to lead.

Lesson 8 - The Frustration Test

2 Corinthians 11:16-16

Lesson 9 - The Servant Test

1 Kings 19:19-19

Image for series You Matter

You Matter

People Matter. They matter to God and they should matter to us. One of the biggest hindrances to growth in any church is the general lack of compassion for other people. We easily find reason to dismiss someone from being someone we would introduce to Jesus due to how they look or what our impression of them is. However, They Matter. Just how they are at this very moment. This series will help your church to understand the urgent need to love people and to embrace them regardless of where they are at in their life. Without this, people will remain lost and our churches will not grow. [ read more... ]
