Heartbeat
Just as each of us have individual physiological heartbeats, we also have differing emotional heartbeats. Our heartbeat is the stirring, motivation and inclination that we have which makes us who we are.
 
What is your particular heartbeat as it extends to ministry.

    Spiritual Gifts
     
    The church is not a collection of individual units, but a gathering of interconnected parts. We function best as the body of Christ when those parts function in harmony with one another.
     
    Our proper function is determined how God wired each of us individually to function within the body. We call that wiring our SHAPE.
     
    Today we deal with the first element of our ministry SHAPE - our spiritual gifts.

    Teasing The Tithe
    God desires for His people to grow in faith, and He provides disciplines as tools to experience that growth.
     
    The discipline of giving is a helpful tool for growth because it helps us to build a deeper trust in God than in our material possessions. God is more concerned with the attitude in which we give than in the amount. If the attitude is right the amount will fall in line. When we focus too much on the amount, it may infect our attitude.

    Connecting In Community
    God desired and equipped us for spiritual growth.
     
    One tool or discipline God has given us for growth is something that we can never do alone because Christianity was never meant to be a lone adventure -- Community.
     
    Community helps us grow as we surround ourselves with strategic relationships that receive the benefit of others pouring into our lives, while pouring in the lives of others.

    Practicing Prayer
    God grows my faith to maturity through the practice of a variety of habitual disciplines. One of those habits that God uses to grow my faith is the practice of prayer. Prayer allows me to lean into God, to share my heart, and seek his help.
     
    In Matthew 6, Jesus, in teaching the people on the mount about prayer, shares three things about how to effectively pray.

    Developing A Taste For God’s Word
    God desires for us to grow spiritually. He has given us his Word to accomplish that very desire. However, the Word can only fulfill its goal when we get close enough to expose our lives to its influence.
     
    Using a metaphor of eating, this message explores how to develop a fuller appetite for God's word.

    What Is God’s Story
    No matter your personal evangelistic style, there will come a time when sharing God's story is necessary to complete the process of evangelism. But what is God's story? With all of the confusion of "church messages", which is the message lost people need to hear?

    What Is My Evangelistic Style – Reach 2
    We are all called to share God's heartbeat for lost people. We are all called to continue Jesus' mission to saving those who are lost.
     
    However, we are not all called to fulfill that task in the same way. Scripture presents us with at least 6 characters that utilized the divine way that God made them for greatest effectiveness in the way that they serve as a witness.

    Why Should I Care About Lost People?
    Lost people matter to God, and they ought to matter to us. We should be engaged in their lives because it matters to God, was Jesus' mission, is in our identity, and it is the surest way to change the world.

    The Harried
    Series: Dirt Matters
    Some Christians have their faith put in danger by a preoccupation with worry, possessions, and pleasure. Too often these three untended dangers choke out a blossoming faith.
