Fresh Vision: The Power of Shared Vision // Fresh Fruit (Part 2) // Michael Todd
In this year of fruit, God is pruning and cutting us in areas that do not bear and areas that He desires to see more fruit. To keep from perishing, we have to receive vision to keep us ALIVE. In Week 2 of the Fresh Fruit sermon series, Pastor Mike shared fresh vision for Transformation Church with us and taught us how to have a vision for fresh fruit. This year our focus will be on having tested faith, trusted friends, and being in a space of training for spiritual formation. Let’s commit ourselves to this new level of faith, friendship, and formation, trusting that God is going to cause us to bear MORE FRUIT!Scripture References:John 15:16 NLTHabakkuk 2:2 NKJVJohn 15:1-2 NLTJames 1:2-4 NLTProverbs 17:17 NLTActs 2:42 NLT

There’s Triumph In Trying Again // End in Triumph: Damaged But Not Destroyed (Part 11) // Michael Todd
Trauma wants to steal your ‘try,’ but there’s triumph in trying. On this Crazy Faith Offering Sunday, Pastor Mike ignites our faith to walk in obedience even when it feels crazy.

A Sudden Switch // End in Triumph: Damaged But Not Destroyed (Part 10) // Michael Todd
The way you end a thing is the way you start a thing. This year we are going to END in TRIUMPH! In this mini-series of the DBND Sermon Series, Pastor Mike gives us a faith boost to believe in the SUDDENLY. Oftentimes when we hear “suddenly”, we think “quickly” but what if your “suddenly” is connected to something slow? Pastor Mike walks us through biblical examples that remind us that the suddenly often comes with a season of steady. Perhaps the blessing that God wants to manifest in your life will come as a result of a subtle shift. We pray this message shows you how to stay steady to prepare you for what’s to come!Scripture References:Isaiah 43:15-20 NLTRomans 8:28 NLTAmos 9:13-15 MSG

Greater Is In Me // Damaged But Not Destroyed (Part 9) // Tye Tribbett
In Week 9 of the Damaged but Not Destroyed series, we revisit session 5 of VIIID conference, where Tye Tribett takes a Master class approach on bondage, warning us to be cautious of what we take in during moments of vulnerability, for during these times the enemy will use deception as a tactic toward your desires. Prayer is essential to become acquainted with the right voice to guide you in helpless times. Are there moods, spirits, and ideas you've accepted that God needs to check? We encourage you to bring them before God, not by your might or your power, but by God's Spirit in which deliverance comes.Scripture References;Romans 8:3 KJVRomans 7:5 NIVHebrews 4:12 KJV2 Corinthians 10:5 KJV

The Breaking Point // Damaged But Not Destroyed (Part 8) // Dr. Dharius Daniels
Oftentimes we expect damage to come from our own unfortunate experiences, decisions we’ve made, or situations that harmed us. However, sometimes our damage can come from the backside of a blessing. In Week 8 of the Damaged but Not Destroyed series, Dr. Dharius Daniel masterfully expounds upon the story of Jonah. While Jonah was blessed to be a Prophet, trusted to carry God’s messages, he found himself running from an assignment. He got himself into a problem that only God could get him out of. In God’s grace, He used Jonah’s mistake as transportation into his future. If you’ve ever found yourself stuck in a problem or been in a space of intentional disobedience, we pray this message guides you toward God’s redemption!Scripture References:Jonah 4:1-3 NIVJonah 3:1 NIV

This dynamic panel walked us through the scriptures, taught us about the different types of counsel, and shared their experience with licensed therapy. Counseling is not just to get rid of trauma but it allows you to uncover your God-given treasure. Pastor Mike leaves us with a call to action to attend at least 3 counseling sessions by the end of April 2024. Will you accept the challenge to go from trauma to triumph?Scripture References:Proverbs 12:15 ESVProverbs 15:22 ESVJames 5:16 ESVProverbs 11:14 ESVIsaiah 45:3 NLTJohn 16:7 AMP

Patterns That Prophesy // Damaged But Not Destroyed (Part 6) // Michael Todd
In Week 6 of the Damaged but Not Destroyed Series, Pastor Mike highlights the pivotal role that our patterns play in shaping our future.

However, we are reminded that God has given us the power to transform these patterns.As Jacob wrestled with God, we know that confronting these patterns might require a struggle. Yet, this wrestling can ultimately lead to experiencing God's blessings and change the trajectory of our future. The message encourages us to acknowledge the patterns in our lives, encouraging us to align with God's unchanging patterns, which always yield a great reward.Scripture References:James 1:12-15 NLTPhilippians 2:13 NLTGenesis 32:22-32 NLTRomans 12:2 NIV
