Teachings And Lectures From Park Hill Church

    How to Deal With Unfulfilled Desires (Hannah's Story)

    How to Deal With Unfulfilled Desires (Hannah's Story)

    Rachel Hughes visits Park Hill Church with a timely message for many. Rachel and her husband Tim are pastors of Gas Street Church in Birmingham, UK. Today, Rachel unpacks the story of Hannah in 1 Samuel 1 and 2. The story of Hannah is a beautiful example of what we as God's children are invited to do with our unfulfilled longings. Rather than engaging in spiritual bypassing or caving in to discouragement, Hannah chooses to "stand up" and walk through her unfulfilled desires, fully trusting God with the outcomes.

    The Extraordinary Life You Long For

    The Extraordinary Life You Long For

    From our series "Acts." Acts 6-7 are two chapters almost entirely focused on the life of one person: Stephen. He's not a full time pastor. He's not one of the Apostles. He's not one of the professional church people. He's a normal church member who becomes one of the most extraordinary lives in the history of the Church. He's also the first Christian martyr. What is the secret of Stephen's power and influence? Whatever it is, it's something available to everyone in the church, not just the professional Christians.

    Who's Missing at Your Table?

    Who's Missing at Your Table?

    From our series "Acts." As the church continues to grow, problems start to arise. In Acts 6, the Greek-speaking Jewish Christian widows are getting overlooked by what is likely the majority culture (Aramaic-speaking Jewish Christians) within the church. But the Holy Spirit begins moving in this new church, and the result is beautiful. Because the whole church has the power of the Spirit, they are free to give away their own power for the sake of the vulnerable just like Jesus did. This story has so much relevance for our time.

    Easter 2024: Love That Passes Through Locked Doors

    Easter 2024: Love That Passes Through Locked Doors

    It's Easter 2024. We are continuing in our series "Acts." Here in Acts 5, the connection to the Easter story is too good to miss. The apostles are in prison for preaching the resurrection. They've been publicly shamed by Jewish leaders. These apostles have every reason to be crippled by fear of the unknown. But they aren't afraid. It's as if they're expecting a heavenly being to pass through their locked doors and lead them into God's future hope. Why were they so secure, confident, and settled amidst their suffering? The reason goes back to a similar event they experienced on the first Easter morning.

    The Fruit of the Fear

    The Fruit of the Fear

    From our series "Acts." For many Bible readers, Acts chapter 5 is famously considered one of the most troubling texts in all of scripture. In this narrative, a couple named Ananias and Sapphira die... seemingly, for lying. But things are more than they seem. And the result of this tragic moment in church history is that the "fear of God" grips the hearts of the whole church, which in turn leads to miraculous healings, salvation, and power flowing through the early church out into the world God so loves. So, what do we make of this story today as San Diegans in 2024? And what do we make of "the fear of the LORD"? The Holy Spirit wan't to bring about great fruit in our lives today. But it turns out, we can't have the fruit without the fear.

A place to call home

I couldn’t be more grateful to live in proximity to this church community and to have called it our home church for the past 5 years. If you grew up in the church you will most likely be refreshed and encouraged by the messages and the way community is modeled here. Community, commitment to scripture, hospitality and discipleship are core values here. The longer you come the more challenged you will be to dig down and create roots with others. This is truly a place where you can live out your walk with Jesus, grow in your faith and witness a model of church that is worth trusting and pouring into.

A Church Evolved

I’m so incredibly thankful for Park Hill and these podcasts. Not long ago, I hit rock bottom in my spirituality and became disillusioned w the church. The leaders at Park Hill are evolving the way things are done in a very refreshing way. They acknowledge today’s challenges and realities and make sense of them in light of the scriptures. To witness minds like theirs pave this path has been immeasurably encouraging and helpful in restoring my faith in the church.

A church that stands out

I recently started attending Park Hill church and am so impressed. Each sermon packs a punch and is so relevant to living a Christ-like life in the current challenging modern times. I feel so encouraged every week. The podcast is the best resource, especially because I’m not always able to attend service, or if I want to reflect even further on a past weeks message.
