Priorities, How do we make them?
August 30, 2018 • Jason Lineberger
We often struggle with making goals and setting our priorities to meet those goals but that struggle gets even worse this time of year when the school year kicks in. A lot of people are back in school, have kids back in school, and work tends to pick up some depending on where you live. With the added stress and the temptation to coast through and pray you make it, how can we set our priorities in a way to accomplish our spiritual goals going into this busy season? Join us in this episode as we talk about this "fun" topic.
Why Does Ignite Do ATM?
Why "At The Movies?" • August 9, 2018 • Jason Lineberger
Every year Ignite does a series called "At The Movies." In this series we look at a few blockbuster films from the past year and find the spiritual themes in the movies. It is a fun series where we have characters dressed up in the lobby and pass out popcorn as you walk in, but why do we do this? Why is this even remotely the best use of a Sunday mornings message? In this episode Jason looks at why we do this series and takes a look at what scriptures one could use for or against this type of series.
Father Abraham #1
The worst father...? • June 7, 2018 • Jason Lineberger
Father Abraham had many sons, and it all started with 2 sons that he Fathered very differently. Abraham is a unique man in the Bible that shows us simultaneously how to be a great father and how to be a terrible father. In this episode we will look at how Abraham fails in a major way as a father and what we all can learn from that.

Jesus & Politics
April 26, 2018 • Jason Lineberger
Continuing the theme of answering some of our church's frequently asked questions, this week we turn to the subject of politics.

How involved should we be? Join Pastor Jason in the conversation about Jesus & Politics.
F.A.Q. // Saved People Share
April 19, 2018 • Jason Lineberger
One of the things as Christians that can sometimes fill us with so much fear is sharing the salvation message we have recieved. Something you think would be so easy can be so difficult. We battle with insecurities, and anxiety but at the end of the day there has to be steps you can take to overcome these fears. Join us in this episode as we talk about one of the most important parts of our faith...sharing it.
Witnessing to a Jehovah's Witness
March 29, 2018 • Josh Faulkner
Normally when you think of a Jehovah's Witness, you think of someone who is coming to your door to share their faith with you, but who shares Jesus with them? How can we start the conversation before it comes to us?

Sharing Jesus w/ People of Other Faiths
March 15, 2018 • Josh Faulkner
Sharing Jesus with people of other faiths can be a challenge. No matter what faith someone may have, there has to be a basic knowledge and sensitivity to their beliefs be able to love people where they are before we can share Jesus with them. What is a good starting point? What responsibility do we have? Also how do we come across to people when we share our faith? All of these are dire questions that we have to address to share our faith effectively with people of other faiths. Join us this episode as we are joined by special guest, and small group leader Josh Faulkner to talk about his background from the Jehovah's Witness church.
Can you be Angry?
Is anger a sin? • March 1, 2018 • Jason Lineberger
Anger very often is an emotion that can be associated with sin. Rarely if ever would someone abuse, or tear someone down out of being happy for them, but those are often born out of an anger toward someone. But is there an instance where anger is not sinful? Join Pastor Jason this week to talk about anger.
To Forgive, or Not to Forgive?
February 8, 2018 • Jason Lineberger
We all want forgiveness when we wrong others but when it comes time for us to forgive wrongs done to us it can be difficult to take that step. Do we always have to forgive though? Doesn't God understand sometimes if we don't? What does the Bible really say about how we treat others that wrong us? Join Pastor Jason in this weeks episode of the Pastor Jason Discipleship Podcast as we talk about forgiveness.
What is Baptism?
January 18, 2018 • Jason Lineberger

Join us this week for our next episode of the Pastor Jason Discipleship Podcast as we "take the plunge" into the topic of baptism.
New Year, Old Junk

The "Reason" for the "Season"
December 7, 2017 • Jason Lineberger
Around Christmas you hear terms from pastors that you don't normally hear. One of those words is "Incarnation." We hear that Jesus is God incarnate.

3 "Kings" and 1 Baby

Can christians celebrate Halloween?
October 26, 2017 • Jason Lineberger
Halloween is almost here and for many christians this brings a lot of questions. Should our kids be dressing up and pretending to be a character? Should we support the holiday by giving candy to kids that come by? Is all of this something that God can be a part of? Join us this week as we talk about the idea of "Receiving, Rejecting, and Redeeming."
Holy Spirit // Part 2
Does He work in our life? • October 12, 2017 • Jason Lineberger
In part two of Pastor Jason's talk on the Holy Spirit we move forward in our discussion of how the Holy Spirit moves in our lives. Last week we talked about His personhood and what that means for us, and this week we talk about our response to Him as a part of the triune God.
Holy Spirit // Part 1
Who is He/It? • September 28, 2017 • Jason Lineberger
The Holy Spirit is a part of the Trinity. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are all equally God and equally worthy of praise. Somehow through tradition and due to the mystery around the Holy Spirit, we tend to shy away from talking about this part of the triune God. Join us in this episode as we try to start a conversation about the Holy Spirit, who or what he/it is, and more!
