    Keep Believing and Keep Serving // John Stevens, The Hub 2022 (Talk 3)

    What should you do as you make a decision about gospel ministry in the face of ridicule from the world?

    John Stevens gives the third of three talks at The Hub conference from 1 Corinthians 15. To the world, church ministry is a worthless, waste of time. Yet the gospel means that church ministry is worth it because it has eternal significance.

    The Proud and the Humble // Sam Gibb, The Hub 2022 (Talk 1)

    The Proud and the Humble // Sam Gibb, The Hub 2022 (Talk 1)

    You will never see how Jesus sees people unless you daily let go of ego and come to him. Humility is the most important characteristic of a church leader.

    Sam Gibb gives the first of three talks at The Hub conference from Matthew 18:1-14. He shows us how pride and humility affect church leadership and encourages us that we have no idea how much Christ truly cares for us.
