Sadly, many churches in America presently contain joyless pastors preaching man-centered doctrines. By the grace of God, Covenant Life Church is not one of those churches that meet the above descriptions. Covenant Life is not only Gospel-centered, but also the pastoral team is overflowing with passion for the Savior and desire to deepen their knowledge of Him.
One small problem I do have, however, and as mentioned above by someone else, there are no podcasts from both the Singles ministry as well as past NA conferences! But that small flaw is CLEARLY overlooked from these messages given at this local church!
I was reluctant upon receiving a nano because of my belief of how iPod's are overrated (sorry Josh and iPod lovers! =\...), but what a gift of God these podcasts were! Through them God has provided a way to reveal more of himself for my good and for his glory; in addition, I've experienced more on the attitude and God's work towards courtships and preparation thereof (I've only listened to that one so far, but I was also there in October of 2005 when C.J. Mahaney preached about the doctrine of election which was humbling and awesome), and though expected to be preached from Josh, the points the Spirit enabled me to absorb were applicable! Even though I haven't started d/loading the Luke and Affluenza series yet, they should prove to be effective in my daily encounters with God.
If you choose to subscribe to this Podcast, then not only will you expereince the exceptional and phenomenal leading serving from these men, but you'll be more aware of encountering God throughout the day, and your passion for the Savior will only grow deeper!
