DEAR CHURCH PLANTER – DARREN ROUANZOIN
Christianity, church planting, pastoring all carry a weight. In this episode of The Foolishness Podcast Pastor Darren Rouanzoin humbly unpacks the many lessons he has learned on his 12 years church planting journey.
Can we boldly pursue God, inquiring, asking, even petitioning Him?
https://vimeo.com/260805152 From standing before a burning bush in confusion and fear, asking God to send someone else, we now find Moses fighting on behalf of the Israelites and knowing God intimately enough to be certain that He will respond in love. It is out of God’s good pleasure toward Moses and Moses’ desire for the […]
The Ten Commandments!
What would culture look like if we actually honored the Ten Commandments? Are they outdated? Has God done away with them? Are we under them, in such a way that if we break one there […]
The Crucifixion? How important is it to your life, or greater yet, your eternity? Are we really good people? Do we really have everything figured out and are we content with the world-view we have been exposed to growing up? Would everything change were we to come face to face with the reality that Someone, […]
SUICIDE? DEPRESSION? ANXIETY? PARANOIA?
SUICIDE? DEPRESSION? ANXIETY? PARANOIA? Who do you know that faces such things daily and who may need to hear the truth? This past week has been a reminder of the pain and hurt people face and carry, and while we may feel it best to post the beauty and joy in life, it was while […]
Do you “Seek First The Kingdom”?
“Seek First The Kingdom” – Luke 13:10-21 – Branches Church HB – May 28th 2017 As believers, now that we have been “hidden in Christ” do we continue to “Seek first The Kingdom”? Why would Jesus call us to do this, and if we do or don’t, will it make a difference? “In this message, Brian Sumner […]
The “Transfiguration”. Luke 9:27-37.
Having just performed many miracles, and then asking the disciples who they say Jesus is, we see that they are shaken to the core, as Jesus begins to reveal His journey towards The Cross. So many supposed Messiahs have come and gone, with many of them dying, even being crucified. So what makes Jesus any different? […]
Based on Luke 8:40-56, we look at how “Jesus Restores”.
The Woman with the issue of blood, and Jairus’s daughter? What do we see in these stories that reveals the restoration Jesus brings? As we close out Luke chapter 8, Jesus raises a dead girl and heals a woman who was sick. Defying societal expectations, Jesus does a healing for two people on opposite sides […]
“Daughter” or “Son”, do you know who you are in Christ?
Do you truly know your worth in Christ? For many believers today, wether raised with-in the […]
The Gospel? What is The Great Commission? “Love and Truth in Action”.
Scripture: Matthew 28:20 August 2016 – CreationFest – Cornwall, England Continuing along with the theme for the festival “Love and Truth in Action”, we look at how Jesus came boldly, to reach that which was lost, and likewise how we are called to continue living out The Great Co-Mission.
Wondering what the very end of the Bible says? We jump from Revelation 5 to Revelation 21-22 considering a believers arriving home.
Finally! The “Never Fails” 30 Day Marriage Devotional is available for pre-order.
Hows your marriage? All working out? Is it causing you to grow, consider, die to self? It should be. Many of you know our story, we were married, had a child, then divorced. Soon after that we came to faith, and God restored our marriage, but that did not mean marriage was easy. It […]

Here’s day five of my upcoming Marriage Book ” Never Fails”.
Day 5 The Covenant of One Flesh Our marriage is of God. He designed it, blessed it, and has made Himself accountable for it. A good marriage is one of the blessings we can enjoy because of Christ’s death on the cross. But we often view God as so remote—not part of our daily lives—that […]
