Every Heart #1 - Matt Destry Matt Destry Speaking about God being the God of Lost Causes, Matt Destry redefines the meaning of poverty, telling us that in a biblical sense poverty was not about a lack of wealth or resource, but really all about disconnection from relationships. When we are disconnected from relationship with God, others, our own identity or even creation, then we experience true poverty. He encouraged us that even if we have written off a relationship with one of the above, God has not!

Soul Prosperity - Ben Kumar Ben Kumar Discovery Church Young Adults Pastor, Ben Kumar speaks on Soul Prosperity. God wants our souls to prosper in all the things that God has for us. The number one key to having a prosperous soul is to learn the art of meditating on the Word of God. Ben teaches that we all meditate in our daily life as we worry about problems or situations, as we replay conversations with people in our world. Meditating on the Word of God is the same process and if we replace meditating on worldly concerns wit meditating on the Word then our souls will prosper.

Broken Arrow #7 - Matt Destry Matt Destry Matt Destry wrapped up our Broken Arrow series with one of the most famous passages of scripture of all time. Teaching from 1 Samuel 17, the story of David and Goliath, Matt reminds us that David was considered little more than an insignificant shepherd boy, with nothing in his arsenal that could defeat the legendary giant of the Philistines. There was another small boy from Bethlehem who was considered insignificant and despised, a man of sorrows. Our Saviour and Lord, Jesus. Because of His victory over the giants of sin and death we have the victory and we can plunder and take back from the enemy's camp all that has been stolen from us.

Broken Arrow #6 - Matt Destry Matt Destry Matt Destry speaks on struggling with tiredness as a christian. Teaching from 1 Samuel 27, we see David discouraged and exhausted from being on the run from King Saul. The choice David made to rely on his feelings and his own wisdom instead of God had many consequences for the future. David had lost the voice of God. We learn from this season of David's life the importance of monitoring our self talk, so that it does not drown out the voice of God, to not lean on our own understanding for to search for Godly wisdom, and to leave the outcome to God.

Broken Arrow #2 - Phil Hamilton Phil Hamilton Discovery Church's Neighbourhood Pastor, Phil Hamilton speaks about the the heart of David, the King, the Adulterer and the Murderer. Despite David's enormous flaws and sins that many would say were unforgivable, scripture remembers him as a man after God's own heart. As we look at how David dealt with his sin and how God loved him through it all, we realise that there is nothing that can separate us from God's love. No matter what we have done, repentance brings healing and restoration.

Broken Arrow #1 Matt Destry All the best stories begin from nothing. Matt's message to launch new series "Broken Arrow" started at the beginning of David's story. An insignificant youngest son among the many sons of Jesse, David shepherded his father's flocks. He was the most unlikely of candidates to become a Nation's king. But God chose a flawed, imperfect David to fulfil His plans and today God chooses you.

Unstuck #2 - Jody Destry Jody Destry Jody Destry preaches a powerful message on how leaving the narrative that God is writing for our lives results in us being stuck in a life that is far less than God's best for us. Getting unstuck always involves a wrestle with God. The wrestle is all about surrender, humility and identity. It’s in the wrestle that we realise that our power is no match for God’s power. God in his grace reminds us that it’s only in His power that we get Unstuck. Jody encourages us to not give up in the wrestle. It’s only after the wrestle that we can re-enter our story.

The smooth flow of a genealogy is suddenly interrupted by Abram's wife Sarai who is barren. Through Matt's message we learn that God is often a God of Interruption, who invades our world to see the purposes of His Kingdom come to pass. We need to recognise when our lives are suddenly interrupted, often in a most uncomfortable way, and know that this is God at work.
