Parenting IQ: Identity by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, we will be focusing on adolescence. These years are a time of determining one’s identity and questioning the world around them. We’ll be taking a look at some common questions and misconceptions regarding student ministry and be reminded of the importance of reaching our teens. This weekend’s message is titled “PARENTING IQ: IDENTITY.”

Operation Fortify: Part 1 by Dr. Abidan Shah

OPERATION FORTIFY – 1 by Dr. Abidan and Nicole Shah, Clearview Church, Henderson, NC Introduction:  In ancient times, how well a settlement was fortified gave evidence to how important that settlement was.

Operation Restore by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are beginning a very special two-part miniseries on marriage. We see in Genesis that God created marriage to be a beautiful union between a husband and wife, but very quickly things begin to fall apart. In this series, we will examine what went wrong and how we can work to get back to God’s original design for marriage. The title of this weekend’s message is “OPERATION RESTORE PART ONE.”

Family Resemblance by Dr. Abidan Shah

In this first message, we will focus on Peter’s reminders to both wives and husbands regarding how they ought to treat one another. Peter wants his readers to understand that they ought to model themselves after their forefathers, Abraham and Sarah, rather than the world around them. As we are living in exile today, this message is true for us as well.

Operation Safeguard by Dr. Abidan Shah

I am excited to announce that my wife, Nicole, will be joining me and sharing from a woman’s perspective the importance of marriage and safeguarding your relationship against the influence of the world. The title of this weekend’s message is “OPERATION SAFEGUARD.”

Glorious by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are continuing our series “ESSENTIAL” through the book of Ephesians. The relationship between Christ and the church affects every area of our lives, including our understanding of marriage. The relationship between a husband and wife should be modeled after the relationship between Christ and the church. The title of this weekend’s message is “GLORIOUS.”

Keeping Intimacy in Marriage Part Five

In this message we will once again tackle the tough subject of adultery but this time look at how God is willing to forgive and restore. We will be looking at the example of King David and Bathsheba. This is a great reminder that daily we need the grace of God in our lives.

Keeping Intimacy in Marriage Part Four

In the past 3 messages we have been laying down the foundation regarding marriage. Now we are ready to deal with the subject of “what happens when marriage is threatened with the sin of adultery.” This weekend, we will meet Potiphar’s wife, an ungodly woman whose pursuit of Joseph brought hardship to both his life and her marriage.

Keeping Intimacy in Marriage Part Two

This weekend I'm preaching the second message in our series "Keeping Intimacy in Marriage." In this message, we will talk about the differences between men and women. God made us different for a reason. A happy marriage is one that understands the differences in our God-given roles.

Keeping Intimacy in Marriage

What’s amazing to me is that right after raising the bar on anger, Jesus turns towards marriage. In the Old Testament adultery was sin but Jesus declared lust to be no less than adultery! Bottom line: Marital intimacy is a sacred bond. When we share it indiscriminately outside of marriage, we sin against God.
