Paul’s Missionary Journey 18

This week, we conclude our Paul's Missionary Journey Series and study how he is transferred as a prisoner to Rome to await his appeal to Caesar. Along the way, Paul turns calamity and captivity into courageous opportunities to share the Gospel at an unscheduled stop and under house arrest in Rome as he obediently takes the next step in faith.

This Sunday, we will conclude Paul's Third Missionary Journey. As he rounds out this journey, he visits old friends and encourages them, but the Holy Spirit ultimately leads him back to Jerusalem, where he is warned that arrest and persecution await him

Paul’s Missionary Journey 6

This week, Paul embarks on his Third Missionary Journey! He will visit a few old friends along the way to strengthen and encourage them, and we will see him shift his strategies and model for mission work. Up to this point, Paul has been 'the traveling missionary,' but in Ephesus, he slows down and takes on a new role in his missionary work.

Paul’s Missionary Journey 2

In this second week of Paul’s missionary journeys, we continue following Paul on his first journey as he travels into Iconium, Lystra and Derbe. In these cities, we start to discover the extreme persecution that Paul and Barnabas would find as they carried out the mission. An uprising occurs and Paul is stoned and left for dead. Believers took his body and found him alive. They restored him and set him back on his way. Even after this horrible attack, Paul would not be denied. He and his companions circle back around and make their way through the cities that they originally met in ultimately leading them back home by boat.
The lessons we learn in Acts 14 are hard lessons to learn. Not everyone will receive the message of Jesus with joy. Not everyone is willing to stand beside or politely disagree with you. Paul learned that some people will attack and might even try to silence your voice. How will we respond in moments like this?

Paul’s Missionary Journey

Have you ever wondered how the Gospel Message survived for over 2000 years? The events surrounding the life of Jesus of Nazareth happened in a definitive time and place and yet, they didn’t stay there. Those who believed that Jesus was sent by God, carried the message to the ends of the world. The Apostle Paul was one such messenger and this series chronicles his journey.
<br>
Starting in Antioch in Acts 13, we will journey with Paul as he makes Jesus known. For 8 weeks, we will learn Paul’s tactics, read about his opposition and meet the folks that joined their hearts to the cause. We will follow all 3 of the missionary journeys and close the series in Acts 21 when Paul is arrested and awaits his final transport to Rome.
<br>
This series will hopefully cause us to consider our journey. What is God teaching us? What new places is God taking us? What role do we play in leading others and doing our part to make Jesus known?

Paul’s Missionary Journey 1

In this first week of our series, we will learn about Paul and what makes him the perfect person to champion the message of Christ. The idea of, “missionary journey” would not have been widely thought of. For our purposes, the Holy Spirit picked Paul and Barnabas to tell the story of Jesus. The community of Antioch prayed and sent them out.
<br>
On this first journey, we learn of their tactics to spread the Gospel, we hear the actual message and how Paul justifies his belief and we come face to face with the leading of the Holy Spirit. This chapter causes us to consider our journey. Do we allow the Holy Spirit to lead us? Do we understand the sacrifice that was made for us to know God? And are we willing to be sent so that 2000 years from now, the message will continue to ring in the hearts of believers?
