Expectations
Life in Pieces
Brad Powell
One of the pieces of life that can really cause trouble is our tendency to judge God by our expectations. When He doesn’t live up to our expectations, it’s easy to accept the lie that He’s failed to keep His promises and to reject Him. This is precisely what happened when the multitudes following Jesus went from saying Hosanna to crucify Him in a matter of days. Jesus didn’t live up to their expectations. So, they rejected Him. Sadly, it’s so easy for us to do the same. As we bring our series to a close, this will be the focus of our conversation.

ABOUT THE SPEAKER

Brad Powell

Senior Pastor, NorthRidge Church

Brad is not what you’d expect, he’s not your typical pastor. In fact, he was as surprised as anyone when God called him into ministry. Early in life, Brad couldn't even relate to church. He couldn't understand the religious language and found it to be both boring and pointless.

His first six years of ministry were in four very different churches and locations; from Rhode Island to Florida, and from 18 to 500 people. The dying church Brad entered in 1990 was truly a calling of faith and obedience. He didn't doubt God could rebuild NorthRidge, known as Temple Baptist of Detroit at the time. He just doubted the church would follow him as pastor.

Today, NorthRidge is thriving. Under Brad's leadership, the ministry has flooded the surrounding communities, creating an entirely fresh culture of faith. And because the church continues to grow in impact and influence, Brad remains certain of his and the mission of NorthRidge to Wake the World Up to Jesus.
