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.

Unstuck #4 – Matt Destry

Matt Destry concludes our series Unstuck looking at the words of Joshua towards the end of his life. Joshua looks back over 100’s of years of history and sees how God has been at the centre of everything. 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”?

Tiani shares her pain and sorrow of being given away to an orphanage at just 3 days old.

Unstuck #2 – 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.

Unstuck #1 – Matt Destry

In this first message of new series “Unstuck”, Matt Destry takes us back through over a 1000 years of fertility in the book of Genesis. 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.
