"The Rich Young Ruler: The Tragedy of Choosing This World Over Christ!"
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel on the streets of St Louis, MO and calls men and women passing by (in the afternoon rush-hour) to understand the one, true & living God. God is holy. God is perfectly holy. God demands holiness to enter heaven.
The only solution is to run to Christ and trust in Him alone for salvation, righteousness & hope!
"Hope for the Soul: Confidence in the Coming of Jesus!"
Pastor Geoff preaches to the CFBC congregation & reminds them of the stunning & dazzling beauty of Christ -- who is altogether lovely.
This message presents 10 ways that Jesus Christ, the great Bridegroom, is altogether lovely & wholly desirable.
Then the message provides some application points. So what? How does the beauty of Christ affect us?
Song of Solomon 5:16 is the Bride praising & adoring her husband, Solomon, a Son of David. How much more can we the Bride of Christ praise & adore the Ultimate Bridegroom, Jesus Christ, THE Son of David!
Pastor Geoff preaches the gospel on the college campus of STL Community College. Then after he preaches, he engages the students with Q&A afterwards and then engages in personal conversations following that.
"The Sovereign Reign of Our Supreme Christ Over All!"
Pastor Geoff preaches Psalm 2 on the Sunday prior to the election (2016) and shows how we must have an exalted & grand view of Jesus Christ, the King. He deserves worship. He is the glorious Son of God who will conquer & crush all His enemies. Yet, God, out of His infinite mercy, provides ONE refuge from the coming anger of Jesus -- trusting in Him alone by faith and 'kissing the Son' in humble, unreserved submission & delight.
Pastor Geoff teaches Song of Solomon 5 and shows how every relationship (marriage, especially!) has conflict & maturation as it grows. In this chapter, we see this progression:
1. Conflict in the marriage
2. Growth in the marriage
This chapter also has many applications for the Bride of Christ to speak well of, be eager to commune with, and delight heartfully in the glorious Bridegroom, Jesus Christ!

Pastor Geoff preaches the Lazarus account from John 11 and shows how Jesus Christ -- the one, True God -- is a Person. Thus, God is a person with intellect, love, understanding, and wisdom.
God can relate to us & He has in the Person of the Lord Jesus Christ.
This is preached on the streets of St Louis, MO.
"The Wedding Night: The High, Holy & Hot Delights Between Two Lovers!"
Pastor Geoff preaches Song of Solomon 4 and this chapter surveys the wedding night. Solomon & His love are now married & they're now alone in the chamber about to consummate their marriage.
He lavishes her with words of praise & delights regarding her personhood & her body. He loves her! He delights in her! He expresses affection for her!
This message shows the importance of having a biblical theology of sexuality -- the way God defines it. We need the objective, true, authoritative truth from God on the matter of sex while we live in a culture of chaos, confusion & disorder.
Praise God that He has given sex as a gift to be enjoyed as each spouse selflessly worships Christ by serving the other person in the physical lovemaking within the bounds of marriage.
"The Sin of Pride: Its Folly, Its Root, Its Consequences"

Pastor Geoff preaches Isaiah 40 and provides 6 ways that this chapter can help us to anchor our souls on God during this election season. In all the changing seasons of our world, we must fix our eyes upon the unchanging God of glory.
This message works through the opening chapters of Isaiah and then surveys Isaiah 40 to show that God is the unconquerable, unfathomable, unrivaled, and supreme God. None can compare with Him!
Let us be so consumed with our great God that the lesser things of this world (and our society) don't stir us to anxiety or fear. Let us speak of Christ, live with courage, and suffer with joy!
Pastor Geoff preaches Isa 40 on the streets of St Louis & teaches on the attribute of God's self-existence -- God depends on nothing and no one for life and for existence. He is perfectly self-sufficient & self-sustaining in and of Himself.
"Dreaming for Love & the Arrival of the Wedding Day!"
In this account, children & babies are brought to Jesus for Him to touch them, bless them, and pray for them. But the disciples rebuke those who brought the children and Jesus, when He saw this, became indignant & welcomed all the children to come to Him -- for to such as these belong the kingdom of God.

"Longing, Affirming & Romancing! The Wondrous Joys of God-Glorifying Love!"
