This Palm Sunday, we look back at Jesus' Triumphal Entry into Jerusalem. Crowds surrounded Him and honored him with praises and palm branches. But was something missing? The same people who shouted Hosanna this day were the same ones who shouted "Crucify Him!" a few days later. How did this show of worship turn to the Garden of Gethsemane and the cross itself? Are there times that praise can be misused? What does praise truly require of us? Join Dr. Mark Lantz as he examines the concept of praise in our relationship with God this Palm Sunday in his sermon, "When Your Praise Is Not Enough."

Pushing the Limit
May 24, 2019 • Dr. Mark Lantz
You want your life to be significant and to count toward a greater cause. You want your life to matter, to have a dramatic impression. And that is not a bad thing! God has created you to be an influencer! You were created to leave a footprint in your journey in life. You were created to leave a difference wherever you go. But this will not happen automatically. Being an influencer means taking real steps toward that influence. What do those steps look like? What does Scripture say about influence? Join Dr. Mark Lantz in this episode of Life on Purpose to discover exactly how you can push the limit in your own life.
Detox -- Part 1
May 22, 2019 • Dr. Mark Lantz
People are often frustrating. We find ourselves tired of dealing with clashing personalities and wills, and we wonder just how we are supposed to live with people who drive us up the wall. But many of us are not aware of the most potentially toxic relationship of all: our relationship with ourselves. You will not be able to live with other people, especially difficult people, until you solve the problem of having a healthy relationship with yourself. But what are the steps toward this relationship? What does Scripture say about self-image and how it impacts our view of other people? Join Dr. Mark Lantz on part 1 of a brand-new Life on Purpose series: Detox.
How to Be Relentless
May 17, 2019 • Dr. Mark Lantz
We're living in incredible times right now. The spiritual territory we are marching through is uncharted. The challenges and difficulties we face seem monumental and nigh insurmountable. How do leaders within the Christian community deal with sexual temptation toward our youth, self-abuse, and a world previously unknown to our children opened up through social media? Indeed, what can we do? Join Dr. Mark Lantz in this episode of Life on Purpose as he examines what it will take to be a relentless leader in a world that seems to be pushing back as hard as it can against the name of Christ.
