Soul Prosperity – 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 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 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 #4 – Matt Destry

Father’s Day at Discovery Church. Matt Destry’s message was based around the story of David and his son Absalom. A relationship that ended in tragedy yet David constantly had his heart turned towards his son. As fathers, as men may we always have our hearts ready to turn toward the people in our life and not turn away and withdraw.

Leadership From The Life of David – Shane Willard

Guest speaker, Shane Willard speaks on Leadership from the Life of David on this special Thursday evening event as part of our Broken Arrow series. We learn the difference between serving out of duty and serving out of sacrifice. When all that we do is done for God, and not from a sense of duty, we can rest on the truth that no matter the results of our labours, they have not been wasted.

Broken Arrow #3 – Matt Destry

What is really important, what really matters in our workplace, our family and in our relationships? In this message Matt Destry explains that we already have it, we have that one thing that really matters. The presence of God. All our talents and skills, weaknesses and failings are put into perspective when we carry the presence of God in our hearts. All we need to do is carry that presence where ever we go.

Broken Arrow #2 – 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.

Every battle, every blessing, moving Israel along throughout history despite their tendency to get stuck. Matt speaks about some of the areas we get stuck, Generational Cycles, Personal History & the Culture of the Day. Will we declare as Joshua did, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord”?
