"Be Confronted With the Greatness of Jesus Christ!"
Geoff preaches on the sovereignty, judgment, and glory of Jesus Christ and calls all people to respond rightly to Him. John fell down as a dead man and to the one who responds with this kind of humility and awe, Christ says: "Do Not Fear!"
Pastor Geoff preaches on Christ's healing of the 10 lepers and the return of the one to worship and give thanks to Christ. This is a message not only on gratitude but also on the sovereign glory of Christ & His grace toward the outcast sinners (like the lepers, even a Samaritan leper!).
In this verse-by-verse exposition of 1 Thessalonians 5:1-11, Pastor Geoff provides five ways that you can live so as to be ready for the coming of the LORD. He shows that we as believers are not appointed for the day of God's wrath but rather for the obtaining of salvation through Jesus Christ!

"Be A Man! Masculinity & Training Our Boys to Be Men!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff gives a strong admonition from God's Word that we must intentionally and proactively and biblically and prayerfully teach our BOYS to become MEN. We must MODEL and then TEACH what biblical manhood and biblical masculinity really is.
From 1 Corinthians 16:13-14 we see that we must teach them...
This sermon is a plea to parents (especially, Fathers) and ALSO to the Church congregation as a whole to come alongside in the teaching and training of our young boys to be biblical, strong, humble, prayerful, God-loving, servant-minded men.
Geoff preaches on Psalm 78 and exhorts the men to lead at home — especially in leading, educating, instructing, and shepherding their children. This applies to raising up not only biological but also spiritual children. Listen and apply this practical sermon.
Pastor Geoff preaches at the SCBC men's conference and Session #1 is exhorting the men to know who God really is. The primary focus in this psalm is the sovereignty of God, the holiness of God, and the nearness of God.
Pastor Geoff preaches on a text where Paul expresses his encouragement & joy because of the conduct of the Thessalonian Church. There are five marks that characterize the Thessalonian Church. Listen to and apply this practical sermon!
In this podcast, Pastor Geoff teaches Philippians 1:21-26 where Paul expresses his heart to depart and be WITH CHRIST -- and yet he balances that with the desire to remain and help the Philippians for their progress and joy in the faith.
How do you find the balance between desiring to depart and be with Christ (for that's far better) and the resolve to remain & serve Christ Jesus all out? What are some helpful thoughts for Christians who are longing for glory?
"Bad Leadership 101: The Corrupt Leadership of King Rehoboam!"
Pastor Geoff preaches on the sad & tragic account of this prideful man, King Rehoboam.
The DOMINATION of Rehoboam
The Distracted DEVOTION of Rehoboam
The DEFILEMENT of Rehoboam
The DISOBEDIENCE of Rehoboam
Look to Christ. Let us follow after Him!

"Bad (Disqualifying) Leadership: Diotrephes, Part 1 [Pride, Greed, Slander]"
This sermon covers the section of Jesus' interaction with his family and his foes (Jewish leaders) around 3 headings:
1. ACCUSATION - Jesus works only by Satan's power (20-22)
2. ILLUSTRATION - A kingdom divided cannot stand (23-27)
3. CONDEMNATION - Blaspheming the Spirit is unforgivable (28-30)
A. The SINS that can be forgiven!

"Astonishing Realities that Belong to You If You're 'In Christ'!"
In this sermon, Pastor Geoff concludes the expositional study through the book of Joshua and calls each person to answer what Joshua says: "choose for this day whom you will serve."
No one can serve two masters. We must believe in Christ and serve Him wholeheartedly.
One of the applications of this text is family worship. Geoff shows how there are three elements involved: singing, reading the Word, and praying.
He deals with the biblical foundations of family worship, compelling motivations to do family worship, practical outworkings of family worship, and he answers common excuses or objections to family worship.
