Fight Your Enemies with God at Your Side
Wednesday, April 2, 2014
Dave Beaver, the manager of student ministries, spoke of fighting your enemies with God at your side. He told the story of Gideon whose small army achieved victory over the Israelites' enemy with trumpets, broken vessels, and torches. God instructed Gideon that he was not alone. God gave Gideon proof that He was with him and that he, Gideon, could achieve victory without using force against the opposing army. Mr. Beaver told the students that they needed to carry God's light within them (the torch), they need to break the old self and start being the persons God intended them to be (the vessels that the soldiers were instructed to break before approaching the enemy), and use their voices (trumpets) to speak out and proclaim Jesus as Lord. Mr. Beaver told students not to hide in the crowd, but to stand out and be the great person they can be. He said that when God is with you, you can fight the enemies in your life, no matter how strong.
Ministry at Destiny is Key to Success
Thursday, January 16, 2014
Principal Kristin Reed and Student Ministry Manager Dave Beaver spread the spirit of the Lord throughout the school every day as they model for others. At a staff meeting, Coach Dave expressed the views of all administrators and teachers, when he said, "What we do here...bringing students to a point that they not only graduate but also go on to college or universities...is PROVIDENCE, part of God's plan." Spreading the word that God loves you is what makes students want to do their best for HIM and for those around them. Coach Dave said that when teachers and administrators reinforce the mission and vision of our school in their classrooms through prayer, Bible verses, and modeling the right way to act towards one another, they are showing the way to victory.
