“Bringing Life to Death Valley” – We all want to be used by God to do the miraculous. Yet, a lot of Christians tend to over-complicate both miracles and evangelism. After sharing numerous conversion stories, Pastor Peter Haas explains that, if we simply follow the small nudges of the Holy Spirit, then God will allow us to be a part of all sorts of amazing miracle stories.
“Choose Joy” – We all like to imagine ourselves as grateful people. But how do we know if we really are? Most of us don’t see joy as something that’s chosen; but, scripture takes a different view.

“The Root of All Stress” – After a short update about all the campuses Substance is launching, Pastor Peter shares the story of Pastors Isaac and Lindsay Cortez. Much of life is a game of perseverance. But, quite often, the reason we feel stress is because we are carrying the “Burden of Outcome” instead of merely the “Burden of Obedience.” This simply little explanation will change the way to engage God in multiple areas. (Acts 3).
God is longing to give us revelations about our marriages, our finances and our physical bodies ideas that could change everything for us.

(Acts 10).
