The Greatest Invitation
Conversation 8: Unfollow
Follow Me - Conversation 8: Unfollow • June 16, 2019 • Rev. Monty C. Wright
Unfollow is the last Sunday conversation in the Follow Me series. There is a significant crossroad that all of Jesus’ followers encountered, a pivot moment that caused a number of them to press the “unfollow” button and leave. Jesus then asked the 12 that were left, “You do not want to leave too, do you?” Peter then responded by saying, “Where shall we go?” Have you been there? When you are at that place where you are contemplating unfollowing due to transition, temptation, and trouble, God wants us to have clarity so we can make the right choice and not have regrets. To hear more this clarity, listen to conversation 8, Unfollow.

June 9, 2019 • Rev. Monty C. Wright
The Secret of Leading Great focuses on a conversation that Jesus had with His disciples in Mark 10. In this passage He speaks to the leadership style you often see in culture and He challenges His followers to turn all of this upside down on how they leverage their authority. Pastor Monty gives us three applications, when practiced would be both powerful and healing at the same time. To hear more, listen to conversation 7, The Secret of Leading Great.
Conversation 6: Wanting To Want
June 2, 2019 • Baly Botten
Conversation 6 in the Follow Me series deals with the topic of consumerism and how this affects your following Jesus. Pastor Baly said that consumer-Christianity asks the question, “What’s in it for me?” What the Lord wants us to consider instead is a perspective that is very different, transforming and changing our hearts to be more like His. To hear more about how you can have this in your life, listen to conversation 6, Wanting to Want.
Conversation 5: The Disclosure Statement
May 26, 2019 • Rev. Monty C. Wright
The Disclosure Statement is conversation 5 in the Follow Me series. In Mark 8, Jesus has a discussion with his disciples where He asks the question, “Who do people say that I am?” From there, He speaks about the implications for His identity. Ultimately, there is a moral imperative for following and it brings us to a threshold or fork in the road. To hear more about this, listen to conversation 5, The Disclosure Statement.
Conversation 4: Jesus Swag
May 19, 2019 • Rev. Monty C. Wright
Jesus Swag is the fourth Sunday conversation in the Follow Me series. The Apostle Paul speaks of this in his letter to the Colossians, where he says “clothe yourselves..” and gives five very specific ways in which he challenges his readers to clothe themselves in Christ to make a difference in the lives of others. To hear more, listen to conversation four, Jesus Swag.
Conversation 3: What's The Payoff
May 12, 2019 • Rev. Monty C. Wright
What’s the Payoff is the third Sunday conversation in the Follow Me series. When Jesus asked His disciples to follow Him, the lesson that He was wanting them to embrace was not to be afraid, even when it is counter-intuitive. Pastor Monty said, “If you follow Jesus in this way, He will lead you to a place where your faith overshadows all of those things and places that cause you fear today.” To hear more, listen to conversation three, What’s the Payoff.
Conversation 1: The Simplicity of Following
April 28, 2019 • Rev. Monty C. Wright
The Simplicity of Following is the first Sunday conversation in the Follow Me series. Matthew was invited to follow Jesus, even though he was a social outcast and it was shocking culturally. The invitation was not to believe the right things or behave a certain way, but to have a relationship. To hear more about this invitation, listen to conversation one, The Simplicity of Following.
