Apostolic Vision


We are alive to find our own song and sound that all of Heaven backs up.

- We need to widen our view of what worship is. It is deeper and beyond thought and generations. Worship is meant to change the world.

  • - I believe the most critical people are actually carriers of the message. They have creative answers for this world, but the critic in them holds their thoughts captives. They speak death when they are supposed to speak life.
  • - We are not called to sit back and throw stones at things we don’t understand.
  • - We can sing about the pain but sing about the hope we have in Jesus?


Take every thought captive to the obedience of Christ.
- I’ve sat in staff meetings and criticized everyone in my mind. When actually God was giving me solutions that I could have humbly brought. While everyone is at least trying.
- Criticism is the easy route.
- We often think that great leaders are just dominant.


We need each other. If you want to change the world you have to learn how to work on a team. A dream is meant to be lived out!
Brian and Jenn bought a house that they will be remodeling for the next 4 or 5 years. People saw it and said, “What are you doing? Why did you buy this house?” It was really run down. But Brian and Jenn know what it will be. We don't have to convince people of what God has shown you. Just make it happen and be faithful to your vision and God will take care of the critics. Allow God to do His work in you and through you. When God highlights what he has done in you there is NO denying it!


- A gentle word turns away wrath. Not a RIGHT word. A gentle word.
- Every time we try to convince people of what we are doing, we are removing our trust in God.


Let the fruit convince people.

“My dad has taken the low road for years. I’ve watched people bash him in front of his own congregation. My dad just sits there, he does not react. God is our defender, He is the author of our story. He is the perfecter of our faith. God’s timing is perfect.”


A lot of you right now, want to have a huge global ministry. LET GOD DO IT. When God does something he will sustain it. When it happens you will get to sit back and let Him do it. When He does it He gets the glory.
