We live in a time where it’s easy to ask where is God or even if there is a God. There are those who believe and then those who oppose the existence of a Higher Being. Are we believing in something that is fiction? In this session George Kuruvilla digs deeper into the rise of atheism/skepticism among millennials,  what drives a skeptic to think the way they do and how to address their common arguments.

Who Is God – Bez Robinson [04/24/15]

How much do we really know about God? Yes, we know His characteristics and His personality through the person of Jesus. But do we know anything beyond the facts that He is omnipotent, omnipotent, omnipresent, omni-etc? When we think about it, does it even matter what we know about God except for the fact He loves us? Does your perception of God dictate how you live your life on a daily basis?

In this message, Bez Robinson investigates this question.

OFNITE CHARACTER STUDY: JEPHTHAH [Dr George Joseph, May ’14]

Roy Uncle

 

Having been born illegitimately, then driven out by his half-brothers and taking up dwelling in Tob, east of Gilead, Jephthah had his struggles. The elders of Gilead ask him to be their leader in the campaign against the Ammonites, but he holds out for a more permanent and a broader position, and the elders agree that, provided Jephthah succeeds in defeating Ammon, he will be their permanent chieftain. On behalf of Israel as a whole and in reliance on the might of God the Judge, Jephthah challenges the Ammonites.

In this message, Dr George Joseph takes a closer look at the character of Jephthah.

OFNITE CHARACTER STUDY: EHUD [PASTOR NATE SUAVE, APRIL’14]

NateSuave

When Israel was at a time without a king, they continually strayed away from Gods ways. Time after time, they would come repent and then forget Gods goodness. At such a time, God appointed judges to rule over them. One such judge was Ehud. He assassinates Eglon, the king of Moab and then leads the Israelites into battle defeating the rest of Moab.

Join us as we study the character of Ehud, so that we too can learn how to be men and women sold out for the truth.

Speaker: Pastor Nate Sauve
Topic
: Ehud – Israel’s Judge

OFNITE CHARACTER STUDY: ESTHER [DANIELLE SUAVE, MARCH ’14]

DanielleSuave

Chosen among many, Esther’s wisdom and beauty exalted her from orphan to queen. With her newfound royal status, Esther had access to convince the King to spare her fellow Jews, but by doing so, ran the risk of being put to death. After recognizing that her royal appointment came from God and not from her own doing, Esther was willing to stand before the King and face any consequences of serving God.

Join us as we study the character of Esther, so that we too can learn how to be men and women of influence.

Speaker: Danielle Suave
Topic
: Esther – A Woman of Influence

KINGDOM DREAMERS: A STUDY OF THE LIFE OF JOSEPH – TONY THOMAS [FEBRUARY ’14]

Tony

At only seventeen, Joseph had two dreams that suggested he was destined for greatness. Shortly after, however, Joseph was sold into slavery by his own brothers, and later, he was even thrown into prison. Despite finding himself in circumstances so contrary to his dreams, Joseph remained faithful to God, and ultimately, he was exalted to Pharaoh’s second in command.

Tony Thomas is into full time ministry and is based in Champaign, IL. He has spoken at OFNITE before and we are privileged to have him lead this session. In his message, Tony reviews the character of Joseph and leads a discussion around the following:
– What are kingdom dreams?
– The refining of our character and dreams through trials
– God’s providence and our responsibilities in fulfilling dreams
– The advancement of the kingdom through the fulfillment of dream
