A Wasted Life: When Hope is Not Enough
For this year's Resurrection Sunday message, Troy encourages us with the fact that even though we may need to experience what it’s like to have little or no hope, we can also discover that Easter is about more hope than we can handle. The power that rose Jesus from the dead not only changes our lives right now, but also gives us an incredible hope beyond the grave, where eternity is far beyond anything we can imagine.

    Tapping into the Power of Prayer
    In the final installment of our series through James, Troy reminds us that although God can certainly do whatever He wants (He is God after all), He chooses to involve us and partner with us. And as we share our praises, needs, and requests with Him, we should keep in mind that prayer is not about us, but about the object of our faith, which is God.

    Trusting God When You Can’t Do It Yourself
    Series: Standalone
    In this week's standalone message, Troy talks about the fact that God has made thousands of promises to us, and it’s impossible for Him not to keep His promises. This means we can trust that He will do just that; in fact, that’s really what faith is all about: it’s believing that God is going to keep His Word.

    A Bad Investment: It’s Not All Yours
    In this week's message from our series through James, Troy reminds us of what we learn from the first five verses of Chapter 5, that riches can become a problem depending on the manner in which wealth is acquired, the spirit that wealth can potentially produce in the heart, and the way in which the wealth is used. Through this message, we are challenged to do something practical to love our neighbors and be known as the people who love the ones that Jesus loves.

    Don’t Treat Plan A Like It’s Plan B
    Continuing in our series through the letter from James, Troy explains that while there's nothing wrong with making plans, there is a right way and a wrong way to plan. We should set goals, make commitments, work hard, and never give up, but we don’t want to do those things in a way that leaves God out of it.

    The Problem with Looking Out for Number One
    For this week's installment in our series through James, Troy shares the biblical truth that our conflicts take place when our self-interests become our number one priority. This means that to resolve conflicts, we must repent of our sinful selfishness and humble ourselves before God and others.

    A Working Faith is a Faith That Works
    As Troy points out from this week's Bible passage (James 2:14-26), there are things we believe in intellectually, in our minds, and there are things we believe in emotionally, that stir our hearts, but unless we demonstrate those beliefs through our actions, we don’t actually believe.

    It’s Not What You Know, It’s What You Do
    Continuing in our series through James, Real Faith in the Real World, Troy reminds us that although the Bible is foundational and critically important in our lives, it’s not enough merely to read it or hear it or even know everything it says. We have to put our faith into practice and actually do what the Bible tells us.

    Please Come In (and Good Riddance)
    Series: Standalone
    To help us close out a challenging year and look ahead to a new, hopefully better one, Troy encourages us to ask ourselves the following question: What if the things you’ve experienced up to this point—the good, the bad, the ugly, and the beautiful—were all meant to lead you to exactly where you find yourself now?

    Nothing I Wouldn’t Do Myself
    Series: Standalone
    For this year's Christmas message, Troy reminds us of what we celebrate this time of the year: God became flesh and was born as a baby to fulfill His purpose of one day dying for us. His cradle was in the shadow of a cross and everything He did was for the sake of others.
