The Streets of IV

Here is what the streets of Isla Vista look like today…driving through the city reminded me of a song that I  have not heard in a long time.  Heaven is real, I am excited for the day I get to walk on the streets that have no name:

Family Time

Every Wednesday this quarter we have had a family time at the guy’s intern house down our street…just a time to enjoy one another and have fun.  Here is a picture from one of the nights…next quarter we are going to have a Wednesday night Teaching/Equipping time at the IV House of Prayer. I am very excited, as different leaders and interns will be participating in leading each of the nights.

This last Sunday I preached about Jesus, warfare, deliverance, and how the truth sets us free…I knew God had given me a word for the family; however, I didn’t know it would speak to so many people. All week people have been sharing stories with me of what it did for them. One gal was so convicted by God in regards to how the enemy had been deceiving and ripping her off from all that God has for her that after the Gathering, she took all her weed down to the ocean and gave it all up! Here is another one that came via text on Monday:

Hi Jason, I just wanted to tell you that your sermon yesterday has completely rocked me. I literally felt like I was having a mini sozo while you were talking about the mind and our thoughts. You are a phenomenal pastor, teacher and father to Isla Vista. Just wanted to thank you for listening to Dad’s voice and speaking to us what He’s speaking to you. Have a great day!

Seriously, all glory to God…as before and when I started the message, the words of Paul to the Corinthian church rang so true:

“And when I came to you, brethren, I did not come with superiority of speech or of wisdom, proclaiming to you the testimony of God. For I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified. I was with you in weakness and in fear and in much trembling, and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, so that your faith would not rest on the wisdom of men, but on the power of God.”

* due to dead week at UCSB and the amount of people with us we moved the gathering to the Sueno Tabernacle…next quarter we are moving to the dead center of IV (Embarcadero Hall)

Leadership/Intern Christmas Party For IV Church

This last Thursday we had a Christmas Party for our amazing leaders and interns…it was a Christmas Party to be remembered, to say the least.  I am convinced I do life and lead a church with some of the more remarkable people I know…thank you Jesus for giving us a family that loves You and one another so well!  The best days await the city of Isla Vista and IV Church, though I must say the days we are living in are pretty rich!

Upper Room

The Upper Room last Friday night was ridiculously amazing! We are in awe of God’s goodness every week before Jesus Burgers. Heaven knows we need to be re-reminded about why we do what we do and the greatness of Jesus through both worship music and the preaching of Jesus.

“The heavens are telling of the glory of God; And their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.”  (Psalm 19:1)

I Love Baptisms

Both Carrie and Meghan got baptized Sunday after the Gathering…incredible joy, freedom, and love!!  “Therefore we have been buried with Him through baptism into death, so that as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, so we too might we walk in newness of life.” (Romans 6:4)

Jesus Burgers – Encouraged

Hi Jason,

My wife and I were so inspired by God and your Jesus Burgers, that we decided to start one of our own in our home town.  We did call it "Jesus Burgers" too, and simply cooked hamburgers (along w/extras and desert) to the homeless. We did this for about 1.5 yrs. We stopped the ministry to move to Redding, CA to attend Bethel and learn more about deliverance and Holy Spirit power.  Yet we are now inclined to start up a JB in Redding. 

We are hoping that using the name "Jesus Burgers" is not overstepping and legal boundaries - if so, please let us know.  Also would appreciate your prayers for us; and we are praying for your ministry too.

Blessings, Joel
