Not everything in the Kingdom of God is first intellectualized and then acted upon. A lot in the Kingdom of God is EXPERIENCED and THEN understood! God is saying “if you will let me go outside your intellectual box, I will take you into places that otherwise you’d limit Me from taking you.”
Peter is a husband to Megan, and a father to Peter (III), Andrew, and David. His background is in education, having served first as a science teacher and later as an assistant principal for his high school. Peter’s wife, Megan, led him to the Lord while they were both in college at Ohio State, a time where Peter mostly rock climbed and sometimes studied. Peter has since enjoyed freedom after freedom in the Lord as he has experienced more and more of God’s great love for him. One of Peter’s passions in life is speaking encouragement to the body of Christ. Whether with a couple in the DeWitt’s living room or from the pulpit, Peter loves to encourage, exhort, and equip his brothers and sisters in Christ! In addition to serving as an associate pastor at Agathos, Peter continues to work in education as a consultant for schools in Columbus and Ohio. Peter and Megan view their ministry as a joint effort and also enjoy woodworking together in their well-equipped home woodshop.

God's Word about Homosexuality (part 3)
You will release power into your prayer life if you believe in the gospel. The Gospel is summed up in one word: receive. The entire Old Covenant is summed up in one word: achieve. Jesus achieved it all so that we can receive it all … and that’s all we’re doing when praying for people - receiving what Jesus achieved!
God's Word about Homosexuality (part 2)
There is a lot going on in the media right now and we need to guard our hearts from offense. The body of Christ is going to need a very pure heart and pure thought pattern so that we can walk rightly with Him and walk in the power that He has available for us. There is a great opportunity on the other side of this chance for offense.
God's Word about Homosexuality
You don’t need a certification to shout “amen” during a sermon. Yes, things should be done decently and in order, but the church misses the will of God far more from lack of pushing into the things of the Spirit than from pushing too far. God is looking for someone not to be lukewarm.
Abortion from an Apostolic Perspective (part 3)
We carry the power of God wherever we go and as we are connected to the Vine, we bear His fruit naturally! We are not supposed to be conformed to the world, but instead to inform the world!
Abortion from an Apostolic Perspective (part 2)
There is no need to re-invent God’s vision for churches. He has empowered us to preach the gospel everywhere, disciple nations, cast out demons, prophesy destiny, and speak with new tongues. We are blessed with every spiritual blessing in Christ, protected from harm, and lay hands on the sick who then recover! These are not theories to us, but promises from the Word of God for us to walk in … and we are hearing testimonies weekly of exactly that!
Addressing Secular Humanism
Abortion from an Apostolic Perspective (part 1)
The Roman empire would send a Roman ambassador who carried “the DNA” of the Emperor into that newly conquered Roman territory in order to Romanize the territory. That ambassador was called an "apostle" and Jesus deliberately translated that term into the Kingdom. Matthew 6:10 is the apostolic prayer: “Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done, on earth as it is in Heaven.”
The Truth about Creation (part 2)
Why all of this talk about Creation? Remember that in John 5:45-47 Jesus says “For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me; for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?” According to Jesus Himself, to the proportion we don’t believe the writings of Moses, to the same proportion we will not believe the sayings of Jesus! There is a generation that has been raised up in the religion of naturalism which says “don’t believe the bible.”
The Truth about Creation (part 1)
God is not so concerned with His word being destroyed. He is concerned about people being destroyed. This sermon series is not about trying to defend God’s word. God’s word cannot be destroyed. (1 Pe. 1:24-25) Many, many people have been bound in modern times and it is Jesus’ ministry to set them free! What have they been bound by? By a lie that God’s word is not true …

How to share the Gospel Part 3 (Sorry about the audio quality)
It is important to be fluent in the message of the gospel in order to fulfill the Great Commission. But perhaps the bigger need is knowing how to get started in being able to share that message—learning how you get yourself into the scenario where you get to share that message.
Another powerful way to have the opportunity to share the gospel is to share a prophetic word to someone. Now, please know what prophecy is: it is hearing what God is saying and sharing it with someone. That’s all prophecy is. If you would like, we can complicate it, but there is no scriptural need to complicate it.
So, who can prophesy? All believers can! John 10:27 says “My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me.” As a believer, as a follower of Christ, you were made to hear the voice of God!
