Listen on Apple Podcasts This week pastors Matt, Brad, and Dave answer the question: “What is a pastor and elder, and how do you become one?“ What do we mean when we say a man is an elder? What is the role of a pastor? How are they different, and how are they related? How do we do pastoring and “eldering” at Stonebrook?
Saturday’s Core Meeting included a teaching and discussion over what the Bible has to say about our consciences. We read and discussed Romans 14, referenced 1 Corinthians 8 & 9, and recommended the book Concience by Andy Naselli and J.D. Crowley.
In the summer of 2018, pastor Matt taught at the Campus Fellowship Epicenter on the doctrine of The Trinity.

May these gifts bless both the parents and the children who receive them and may the work of Obria and Martha’s House continue to shine for our Lord, Jesus! Thank you,…

“Who have been chosen according to the foreknowledge of God the Father, by the sanctifying work of the Spirit, for obedience to Jesus Christ and sprinkled by his blood…” 1 Peter 1:2 Often times we really don’t know each other’s stories … where we come from- our background and shaping, our “salvation story”- how we came to understand and accept all that Jesus did for us on the cross, and our “happily ever after story” – where God has…

At that point in my life I was convinced of the reality of God and the reality of hell and wanted to…
