Disruptors: The Pure Hearted

By Pastor Kevin Brown

This sixth beatitude cuts to the heart of the matter. In this world things are not as they appear. The original design and intent for creation has been perverted. The world and its inhabitants have been contaminated and infected by sin and death -- we go for what we know, we want things our way and if it feels good we do it. Functioning in that perverted way, we will never see God and His intention for creation. To that first century audience, as well as each of us here today, Jesus declares "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God!”

Disruptors: Give 'Em Mercy

By Pastor Kevin Brown

They were looking for a Messiah that would get revenge and bring about justice for them.  Their babies had been killed by the Roman appointed "King of the Jews", Herod. They lived under oppressive and inhumane conditions, making Rome rich while ruining their businesses, families and communities.  They had no representation and very little power.  Their true leaders were killed, while those who were given positions of leadership were often nothing more than Rome’s puppets.  They were waiting for a Messiah that would make things right — not tell them to be merciful.

Disruptors: Control Your Appetite

By Minister Mike Dixon

We each have different appetites, desires and pursuits, but they must be in agreement with what heaven wants for our lives. Jesus makes a bold guarantee, that if our appetite is sanctified to pursue God’s righteousness, we will not be denied. The question is, will we allow our divine appetite to be suppressed by fear, selfishness and greed or will we only be satisfied with fulfilling the plans of God.

Disruptors: The Earth is Going to the Meek

By Pastor Kevin Brown

We live in a world that can be ruthless and unapologetic. But the earth is going to the meek. Meekness is an attitude of heart, where all of our efforts and energies are brought into the Kingdom of God, controlled by and surrendered to the King of Kings. The meek realize they own nothing, so God is seeing to it that they inherit everything.

Disruptors: God's Kingdom for Our Mourning

By Pastor Kevin Brown

While modern culture encourages us to be self-confident and self-sufficient -- God says those who don't hide under a cloak of self-adequacy are blessed. The supernatural comfort of His Kingdom is for those who genuinely mourn over their sins, inadequacies and distance from Him. God's Kingdom brings the only true and lasting comfort for our mourning.

Disruptors: Disruptive Kingdom

By Pastor Kevin Brown

God's intent for us has always been His Kingdom. The Kingdom of God is our life, discovered and experienced in His life, and our purposes, discovered and experienced in His eternal purposes. Our falling away from God in the Garden was not the end of God's Kingdom. It was an interruption to our automatic and willing participation in His Kingdom. Jesus' entrance into this world was a disruption to life outside of the Kingdom and an invitation into the righteousness, peace and joy for which we were made

Disruptors: Come Out

By Pastor Kevin Brown

We will never live and fulfill what God has preordained for us, our families and our church, until we disrupt things by coming out of our tendency to be fear-driven and safety-idolizing. People are more divided and fear filled than any other time in recent history. This is largely driven by the hyper-connected, hyper-sensationalized, global world in which we live. We are far more diverse but far less neighborly. The whole world is at our doorstep but we are afraid. Our decision to come out of fear and into love is going to change nearly everything about us and nearly everything about this world.

Disruptors: Coming Together

By Pastor Kevin Brown

Nothing comes together and remains the same. Whether it's people, companies or countries, coming together disrupts what was and brings about something new. God is the chief convener. He has filled this earth with the essential parts to bring about His plans -- He combines and disrupts, bringing it all to His desired end.

Disruption: Repurposing the Church to Redeem the Community

By Dr. Mark DeYmaz

Today, no matter where you turn, people are bowed up, choosing sides, and vilifying people that don't agree with them on matters of race, class, culture, gender, religion, politics, and even on whether or not to stand, sit, or kneel during the playing of our national anthem. Could it be for such a time as this that God has brought us here: To a place of understanding and passion? To disrupt the status quo? To repurpose the church to redeem the community? To become peacemakers in a painfully polarized society? Indeed, this should be our finest hour. To embrace it is to shape the future of things to come.

Disruptors: When Jesus Comes In

By Pastor Kevin Brown

Jesus' entrances are always disruptive.  Sometimes His arrival is obvious and others not so obvious, but when He comes things are always disrupted.  When absolute life, truth and power enter a dying, sin-stained and corrupt world, there will be disruption.  Wherever and whenever Jesus enters things change.  He is the ultimate disruptor.  The things in our lives and this world that seem so set and unchangeable are all subject to change when Jesus comes in.

Salt & Light 2017

By Pastor Kevin Brown


Both salt and light are disruptive.  Neither of them exist in a quiet passive way neither of them come without disruption.


To ready ourselves and to position our hearts we are beginning this year with a 21-day fast beginning tomorrow January 9th and ending January 29th. We’re calling it Unleashing God’s Disruptive Power 21-days of fasting and prayer because God is going to come in, He's going to cause some things to come out and He is bringing some things together.  During the Unleashing God’s Disruptive Power 21-day fast, we will pray three times a day—morning, midday and evening—focused on the following areas: come in, come out and come together.

New Year’s Eve celebration

By Pastor Kevin Brown

2016 was a LEAP year. God’s intent in 2016, was for us to LEAP out of our strength, out of our ways and out of our desired ends. He was calling us to LEAP into His strength, His ways and His desired ends. We are living in a series of divinely orchestrated events. God is moving us from dependence upon our strength, into a place of rest, where we cease from our works and enter into His. LEAP was not just a word just for 2016. LEAP’ing is the way of life God has declared over us. We will be LEAP’ing until that day, soon to come, when we LEAP and are caught up forever to be with Him.
