Today it’s like nothing is working. People are hurting. Conflicts are raging. In reality, we’re looking at a fractured world in dire need of a Savior. The Gospel alone is the answer for our broken culture.

Imagine that all over the Eastside, families, neighborhoods, hearts are flipped upside down by the transformative power of the Gospel as Rise House Churches open and rise up.

The most important legacy we leave is the impact we make on the lives around us. And in order to be a person of great influence, we must start by being a person of deep conviction. This week we look at what it means to be a person of influence, and how to live a life that goes so far beyond the mundanities of life. Our worship-filled life in the midst of dark and dreary circumstances brings clarity and focus on the only one who can truly impact us.
