Cross Point Church is focused on communicating the timeless truth of God’s Word in a culturally relevant way by incorporating the use of video, music, props, and drama to create a multi-dimensional approach to understanding and applying God’s Word to our lives today.
In a deep and personal interview, Church of the City’s Matt Smallbone and host Drew Powell share a story of how forgiveness changed their friendship for the better. Matt also talks about what brought him to Nashville and his life working in music and ministry.
There are probably a million ways someone can hurt you in life. But there’s only one way to heal from it: forgiveness. In week five of, “Over It,” Pastor Kevin Queens unpacks what forgiveness IS, what it ISN’T & the necessary role of Jesus in the forgiveness process. If forgiveness is something you’re wrestling with, here’s a great starting point.
Chris Redhage shares his personal story of what brought him to Nashville, living through loss and learning that God loves him for who he is, not for what he does. He also talks about what’s next for the Nashville Soccer Club and his dream to unite the city in a unique and diverse way.
Shame. We’ve all experienced it one time or another. Shame for our mistakes, shame of something that happened to us, shame about our appearance, family, etc. Shame causes us to hide. But here’s the thing: Jesus died for us to be free of shame & to live in our true identity as His sons & daughters. Are you ready to tell shame you’re “over it”?
Guests Kevin Queen and Matt Singleton deconstruct the creative process of developing a sermon series then take a deep dive into how not to let comparison rob you of your joy – from week three of the series “Over It”.
Comparison seems harmless at first. But we’ve all be there…where comparison decides that it is going to dictate what we think about ourselves and others. In week 3 of Over It, Pastor Kevin Queen talks about Jesus’ view on comparison & how we can overcome it.
Guests Ashley Eicher and Chris Nichols take listeners behind the scenes of the Dollar Club and share a few of their favorite Dollar Club moments. They also talk about how the paths that brought them to Nashville years ago look different today and how to navigate through seasons of change.
We all struggle with worry to some degree or another. And if we could choose to not worry we would. Good news, Jesus offers us a way THROUGH our worry. In week two of Over It, pastor, Kevin Queen reminds us of what Paul says in Philippians 4: that Jesus invites us to cast our anxieties on HIM and in return, receive His peace.
Annie F. Downs and Kevin Queen discuss what they love most about calling Nashville home, what they see God doing at Cross Point right now and the inspiration behind the latest series “Over It”.
In week 1 of Over It, Pastor, Kevin Queen introduces the idea that just because we’re over something doesn’t mean we don’t have to deal with it. So how DO we deal with “it?” Maybe “it” is anxiety, depression, comparison, a loss, etc. We are looking to the book of Philippians to help guide us on how invite God to work through “it.”
In the final week of MVMNT 2019, Nashville Campus Pastor, Chris Nichols looks to the book of Acts to talk about what’s next. The disciples and Paul dedicated their lives to taking the Gospel of Jesus to those who hadn’t heard it yet. So what does that mean for us? Watch to find out.
Do you ever ask yourself if you’re really good enough? We all feel like the underdog in some area of our lives. But Jesus’ story is the ultimate underdog story & that’s good news for the rest of us. In week 3 of MVMNT we’re looking to Acts to see how God used a bunch of underdogs to reach the world & what that means for the rest of us.
We’re all devoted to something & there’s no hiding what we’re devoted to. The Cross is the ultimate expression of devotion & through it, we see God’s devotion to us. In week 2 of MVMNT, we learn that living devoted to God starts with God’s devotion to us.
If you’ve decided to follow Jesus, you’ve probably asked questions like, “What does it look like to follow Jesus every day?” or “Is there more to church than just showing up on Sunday?” You’re not alone when it comes to having questions about faith and how to live it out. We’ve all be there at some point. Acts tells what it looks like to follow Jesus and be a part of His Church. In week one of MVMNT, we start with Jesus’ final words to the disciples before His ascension into heaven…” wait for the gift my Father promised.”
In the final week of Lazy River, we finish our series with our good friend, Jon Acuff. As it turns out, true rest isn’t just physical rest but knowing who God is & who we are. Jon closes our series discussing 3 gifts that make true rest a whole lot easier.
Rest. It is entirely necessary & most of the time very hard to come by. Today, Annie F. Downs is kicking off a four-week discussion all about rest. We begin our conversation with sabbath. What does it really mean to sabbath? Why does God ask us to do it? and HOW do we sabbath? Watch to find out.
We all face temptation every single day. Temptation comes in all shapes and sizes but its source is always the same: the enemy. So why does Jesus pray “lead us not into temptation” if temptation doesn’t come from God? That’s a great question that Creative Pastor, Drew Powell, unpacked in Week 4 of Trust Fall.
In Week 3 of Trust Fall, Pastor Kevin Queen continues to unpack the Lord’s Prayer & what He’s promised to us as His children. Jesus prayed: Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors. But what does that mean in our day & age? It means the same thing, God is our provider & we can trust Him to do just that.
Most of us have heard the Lord’s prayer at least once. Some of us may even have it memorized. But what if we actually took what it said to heart. For example, what does ‘your kingdom come, your will be done’ actually mean for our lives? In week two of Trust Fall, Creative Pastor, Drew Powell unpacks what it means for God’s kingdom to come on earth and it turns out, it’s actually to our benefit.
Do you remember what it was like to be a child? There was a sense of trust & faith that seems to fade as we get older. But there is a lesson to be learned from our inner child. In fact, God asks us to approach Him with childlike faith as our Father. In the first week of Trust Fall, Pastor Kevin Queen unpacks how Jesus related to God as His Father and how because of that we can too.
Ever made a decision that required a little bit of faith & a little bit of courage? Chances are you have. We find examples of great courage throughout the Bible. But in week 5 of Defining Moments, Pastor Kevin Queen focused on a man who displayed courage in every defining moment of his life: John the Baptist.
You never know when your next defining moment is going to come and you never know when the people in your life are going to have a defining moment. But here’s the thing about defining moments…they all affect all of us. In week 4 of Defining Moments, Annie F. Downs unpacks the importance of realizing your defining moments in life are not just about you.
On the other side every defining moment a transition period. Because after everything changes, for the good or the bad, it takes time to adjust. But there are things to be learned in those periods of transition that are more valuable to who God is creating us to be than anything else. So next time you find yourself in a season of transition stop and ask yourself: what’s God doing right now? Chances are, it’s important.
Life is full of decisions. Whether you’re deciding what you’re going to eat for breakfast or where you’re going to move your family, every single person makes thousands of decisions each day…And some of those decisions have the ability to determine the course of the rest of our lives. So what do we do while we wait for defining moment-decisions like that to come around? We prepare for them, by studying the people who have gone before us in decision making. In week two of Defining Moments, we are studying Simon Peter, a man whose decision to follow Jesus changed history for all of us.
Defining moments are what shape history. Good or bad, they are the moments that mark periods of time. But there is one defining moment that is set apart from all the rest: the moment Jesus died on the Cross & three days later rose from the dead. You see, this moment in history didn’t just mark a period of time, it changed everything…including the trajectory of your life. We celebrate Easter Sunday remembering the moment that Jesus triumphed death forever…all because of love.
One week before Easter we celebrate Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem. His entry, that stirred things up for the people who lived in that city. While we anticipate Jesus’ resurrection, what can we learn from His last days? This week Pastor Kevin Queen unpacks the story of Jesus triumphant entry and takes note of every person who helped make it happen.
Jesus never promised us a life without suffering. Instead, He promised Himself: the best gift of all. In the last week of Rise & Shine, Pastor Kevin Queen unpacks how to “rise & shine” even when life gets hard. Because Jesus already overcame the brokenness that exists all around us we have the freedom to overcome it too.
Jesus paid the ultimate sacrifice when He went to the Cross. So what does it mean for us to practice sacrificial living? And why is it even important? In Week 5 of Rise & Shine, Pastor Kevin Queen is back to explain what it means to live our lives to serve others and why Jesus calls us to do so.
We are creatures of habit. And we’ve all tried to break bad habits and chances are, we’ve all failed at it a time or two. Instead of trying and failing on our own Jesus asks us to invite Him into the process. Today, Pastor Chris Nichols continues our Rise & Shine with a practical discussion on breaking the habits that keep us from the best that God has for us.
There’s a lot of different types of people in the world. It’s easy to spend our time looking at everyone else’s gifts while overlooking our own. But we were made with a purpose & we are able to recognize that purpose when we know our truest selves. In week 3 of Rise & Shine, Creative Arts Pastor, Drew Powell sits down with author Ian Cron to discuss how to recognize & embrace who God made us to be.
We weren’t mean to do life alone. Most of us know that, but it’s hard to choose friends with intentionality. In week 2 Pastor Kevin Queen takes a look at how Jesus choose His closest companions and what we can learn from it.
In the final week of Awaken, Pastor Kevin Queen concludes the series by talking about an infamous character of the Bible, Zaccheus. But as it turns out, we can relate to Zaccheus in more ways than one. And Jesus has the same response to all of us.
The Parable of the Lost Son in Luke 15 may be one of the most famous stories in the Bible. However, it turns out there wasn’t one but two lost sons in the story. This week, Annie F. Downs sheds new light on Luke 15 and reminds us that if we take an honest look at ourselves, we can relate to every character in the story.
Looking for spare change doesn’t require much effort, but looking for a prized possession calls for a kind of pursuit in which you never stop. God isn’t casually looking for His lost people, His Spirit is constantly pursuing, constantly searching, longing to show us our value.
Ever wonder why Jesus refers to His followers as sheep? Well, it turns out we have a lot in common with sheep. We’re prone to wander. But the good news is this: a shepherd will go looking for his sheep until he finds it. And Jesus won’t stop until He finds us.
In our last message of Off The Grid Creative Pastor, Drew Powell explains the last thing Jesus grew in when he went off the grid: favor with man. But to grow in favor with man has a lot less to do with how people view us and a lot more to do with how WE view other people. Watch & see what we’re talking about.
In the 30 years of Jesus’ life before His ministry began He spent His time…growing. He grew in many ways but perhaps the most important way Jesus grew was in His relationship with God. He spent time in The Father’s presence, absorbing His word & getting to know His heart. This week we’re taking a page out of Jesus’ playbook and asking what it means for US to grow in God’s favor, to grow spiritually.
This day and age we desire to be seen & noticed. But Jesus lived His life differently. In fact, we don’t know much about His life between His birth & when He began His ministry. Why? Because He spent it hidden. In those years He grew…& not just taller. He grew wiser. There’s a lesson in Jesus’ hiddenness for us to learn, but for us, it takes a willingness to be hidden as well.
Waiting isn’t easy but it’s not hopeless. In week 2 of Advent, Pastor Kevin Queen gets real what it looks like to be hoping for something vs. hoping in something…or as Christians, someone, Jesus.
Advent: the season of waiting. Imagine what it was like to wait on the Messiah? Waiting on God comes with the territory of following Him. How do we wait in a way that is good? Today Pastor Kevin Queen begins our series, Advent and discusses what it looks like to lean into God in a season of waiting on Him.
Servanthood isn’t uniquely Christian. But there is one thing that distinguishes Christian servanthood from others, Jesus. And that changes everything. How? Watch as Nashville campus Pastor, Chris Nichols unpacks week one of #fortheone.
The Holy Spirit is a gift to us that is meant to be received…then the gifts of the spirit are meant to be given away. In the final week of Better This Way, Pastor Kevin Queen unpacks the gifts God gives us that are meant to be given away to others and in turn, point all of us back to Christ.
God’s desire wasn’t to create a religion, it was for us to be with Him. What does it look like to define our relationship with God? Kevin Queen talks about intimacy and continues to unpack why Jesus said its better for him to go and to send the Holy Spirit.
Often times we let our past haunt us..causing shame, guilt, and regret. Jesus became sin for us in order for us to live free. This week Kevin Queen talks about letting go of our shame and living life free from our past.
It is easy to find our identity in tons of different things, but God is ready to work through the clutter of those things and tell us who we really are. This week, Kevin Queen is back to talk about identity and what it means to learn what God thinks about us.
