JPUSA 7/13/14 – “The Absence of Joy” – Katherine Williams

Where is the joy? And why is joy so hard to hold onto?

JPUSA 7/13/14 – Brian Moss – “A Man’s Grief, A Woman’s Blood, A Touch”

A deeply felt, directly communicated perspective on two New Testament healing stories.

JPUSA 7/6/14 – Vic Williams – “One Woman’s Witness”

Tabitha (also called Dorcas) was raised from the dead by Jesus. She’s described as a beloved disciple… but why? Small, simple actions often have far-reaching consequences.

JPUSA 6/29/14 – Deb Strahan – “Confidence in the One Who Sees Me”

Deb Strahan faces off with the fear of future and reminds us Who is not only watching, but involved.

JPUSA 6/8/14 – Donn Engebretson – “Fatherhood vs Fear”

Donn Engebretson, Vice President Emeritus of the Evangelical Covenant Church, offered us the perfect Father’s Day message — one that dealt with both pain and gratitude and was charged with encouragement.

JPUSA 6/8/14 – Neil Taylor – “Pentecost and Ordinary Time”

Neil begins slowly, working from the Church Calendar to build a thoughtful message on the supernatural events of Pentecost and the Holy Spirit’s powerful purposes. A meaty message leaving one hungry for God.

JPUSA 6/1/14 – Dave Coleman – “Serve. Everybody.”

Rooted in Paul’s message of joy in Philippians 2, a message preached from a prison cell where Paul was in chains, Dave Coleman finds just what the heart of that joy is about.

JPUSA 5/25/14 – Tina Herrin – “Rejoicing in the Gospel”

Tina explores Paul’s introduction to the Book of Philippians, focusing (among other things) on his joy regarding the Gospel being preached… no matter the motives of those doing the preaching.

JPUSA 5/18/14 – Glen Van Alkemade – “Paul, Athens, and Supertramp”

Glen spent time of his own in Athens, Greece, and Acts 17:15-34 — a passage in which Paul talks to the Greeks about the Unknown God — provides Glen with a jumping off point regarding his own search for that God. Supertramp? Bonus prize (see posting beneath this one.)

JPUSA 5/18/14 – JPUSA Worship Band – Supertramp’s “Even in the Quietest Moments”

This is companion to Glen Van Alkemade’s sermon of the same date, “Paul, Athens, and Supertramp.” Very Lo-Fidelity recording, but such a great performance and interesting song. For lyrics, see

JPUSA 05/11/14 – David Kersten – “Becoming Easter People”

David Kersten, dear friend of JPUSA and President of North Park Theological Seminary just down the road, offers a deeply encouraging exortation rooted in Hebrews 12:1-3.

JPUSA 05/04/14 – Joel Williams – “A Full Day’s Wage”

Joel compares Paul’s conversion in Acts to Jesus’ words in Matthew 20 about last-hour workers and a full day’s wages.
