Jesus Burgers (video)

I know it’s old school now, especially since we have over 60 videos.  However, still my favorite video…I am always inspired and encouraged more because of it.

FMLYBND

This last Saturday the FMLYBND had a concert on Del Playa at the Jesus Burgers House. Seriously, it was the best party of the night – tons of people walked onto our property confused about why the Jesus Burgers House was having awesome music being played, haha. God is good, redeeming a city as the church goes to love and influence it with the things Above.

Prayer & Prophecy

4vJsfBSiNdorEia5Here are a two photos from Payer & Prophecy on Monday nights…anyone can come and get 20 minutes of prayer from 7:30pm to 10pm at the IV House of Prayer.

We have seen the words of Paul be radically true about the gift of prophecy on this night, “But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and comfort.” (1 Cor 14:3)

AMAZING GRACE

Before the baptisms on Sunday the entire IV Church family got into a circle and sang Amazing Grace…such an incredible reminder of what Jesus has done in rescuing us and setting us free by grace alone.

Amazing Grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me….
I once was lost but now am found,
Was blind, but now, I see.

T’was Grace that taught…
my heart to fear.
And Grace, my fears relieved.
How precious did that Grace appear…
the hour I first believed.

Baptism Glory

Yesterday 5 people signed up to be baptized…and someone from the beach who witnessed the baptisms decided he wanted to give his life to Jesus too!  It was an amazing day, God is good!16377_462455097143183_224305961_n65556_462455113809848_312033912_n554160_462455160476510_1276486637_n529453_462455187143174_1273509962_n560187_462454513809908_360300303_n528701_462454550476571_1531347609_n154809_462454617143231_1291608488_n485275_462454713809888_1456550206_n531584_462454987143194_1237243462_n72921_462454890476537_64476883_nphoto cred: hope curran

The Family of God

431358_329201937131856_834879779_n

Here is part of the forward that Jake Hamilton wrote for the The Family of God book…the book should be released the first week in March:

“I don’t know what you were expecting as you picked up this book. Perhaps you’re a leader trying to learn how to do things a little different in your church, maybe you have a small group on a campus and are looking for a few new ideas, or maybe you’ve heard about Jesus Burgers and the IV crew and are just looking for some cool stories. Whatever your reasoning is you need to lay it down and prepare yourself for what’s in the following pages. This is not a “how-to” book nor a “step by step” plan for developing a community in a college town. These are stories of sacrifice and triumph, failure and heartbreak — all of which form bonds that can either last a lifetime or divide you at the start.

Real relationships take courage, sacrifice and humility. Many people are merely looking for the next good meeting and the next hip church they can attend. Let me tell you what I think God wants: He wants to destroy all your perceptions about what relationships look like and what they cost; He wants you to examine your heart and with the help of the Holy Spirit root out selfishness and pride, two of the most destructive forces in relationships; and He wants to help build a new foundation for when the waves of the world crash against the foundations of your friendships and marriages you are left standing firm for others to see. It is going to be healing for many of us to talk about the guilt we have in relationships and to finally yell at the top of our lungs, “I suck at this, somebody please help me!” Okay, maybe that’s just me. But I will tell you what, when I found mothers and fathers to help me I learned that I can trust and love with reckless abandon and without fear of rejection mucking up the place.”
