Storm Troopers – Dave Gilpin

It’s the End of Your Storm.

Some storms are caused by you. You became a storm first – a storm of conviction, audacity and no more compromise. The storm you’ve experienced was simply your world adjusting. Some storms are caused by Sovereignty, not to teach you a lesson but to prepare you for the next outpouring of heaven. Storms come and storms go. Dave Gilpin declares the purpose and the end of your storm, and gets you ready for the new season of power. Preached live at Hope City Church in Sheffield and then watched almost live in York.

Life Stories

Anorexia and Oil Tankers- How two became one.

When Kerry was 21, her life was been torn apart by self-starvation that ended her career as a professional dancer. When Hassan was 25, he found out his life was under the threat of death so he escaped Iran and found himself on a raft in the Aegean Sea, on a collision course with an Oil Tanker.

Storm Troopers Part Deux- Dave Gilpin

When you’ve been through some storms you can easily start to feel that God had something to do with them when, in fact, He had nothing to do with them. He just used them for good but never created them. 

For you to move freely into a season of direct blessing, you’ll need to give your revelation of God a little detox. This message is here to do that- to cleanse you of your confused thoughts about a good God, and get you expectant for His direct goodness to be poured out as the sun shines upon the earth. Get ready for a season change!

A.D.H.A LIVE IN SAN DIEGO – Dave Gilpin

Dave Gilpin takes his Life Message of turning disorders into assets to C3 church San Diego. This expanded version looks deeper into strengths and non strengths as well as God’s strengths upon our weaknesses. It confidently declares over you that 50% of all of your weaknesses are completely mythical.

Stop Loving You – Dave Gilpin “Almost Live”

The Bible never tells us to love ourselves, forgive ourselves or treat ourselves. It says to deny ourselves. And the reasons are excellent- You loving you will prevent God displaying His love for you. Either you do it (which leads to incapacitating worries and doubts) or you leave it to God (which leads to miraculous provisions as well as huge peace of mind). If you love you, you’ll be so preoccupied by things that Jesus said are not your business and miss everything that is your business. This message is here to help you turn bad stress into good stress. Enjoy.

Messiah Complex – Dave Gilpin

The Greater Good Series

Messiah Complex is a belief that either you or someone you know is called to be a saviour to your world.⁣ It’s hard wired— people need a saviour and when they fail to see the real saviour in Jesus Christ- arms wide, full of authority, care and concern- they often turn to leadership and find themselves hugely disappointed. This message is about bringing back the actual Messiah to be the head of the church. When He is, watch out- anything could happen.

Self Hate vs Self Love

The Greater Good Series

To interpret the scripture, ‘love your neighbour as you love yourself’ by saying that you must love yourself before you can love another is to sabotage truth. Jesus isn’t saying this. He’s telling us to take our current self obsession with either self hate or self love and turn our obsession onto Him and others. Only by doing so will you display a trust in God that will enable you to experience the ocean of God’s love. And that in turn eliminates both self hatred and the need for any self love. This message when applied will release you from so much anxiety and worry accrued from attempting to love in all the wrong directions.

Future You – Dave Gilpin

The Greater Good Series

There’s two of you- Present You and Future You. When Present You meddles with Future You’s world, the result is anxiety and burn out. In Matthew 6:34, Jesus told us to not worry for tomorrow. Matthew 6:33 explains why. It refocuses Present You to get on with the ‘greater good’ of expanding the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, then allowing God, along with Future You, to get on with the ‘good’ of seeing your needs met and your destiny fulfilled. To untie Present You from Future You is your key to success.

Faith is a Noun – Dave Gilpin LIVE at Calvary Church

Preached at Calvary Christian Church in Australia, Dave tries to convince the congregation that faith isn’t a doing word, it’s a being word. It’s not a verb, it’s a noun. It’s something you have, hold and handle. Understanding this will wipe the slate clean on all your striving and reboot your world for the fresh, powerful season ahead. 

Love Your Man – Dave Gilpin LIVE at Calvary Church

Recorded at Your Best Life Conference on the Sunshine Coast, Australia.

The Bible states that it’s not good for man to be alone. Often in a long marriage when the wife passes away, the husband passes away soon afterwards. Yet if the man passes away, the wife can live for decades without him! Men are a unique species and understanding that is a huge key to love and togetherness. 

When Friends Fail – Dave Gilpin LIVE at Calvary Church

Recorded at Your Best Life Conference on the Sunshine Coast, Australia.

There’s three kinds of friends in your world- the ones you see from high school every year, the ones who you don’t socialise with but are always looking out for you, and the friends you burn the midnight oil with who are so close and so vital. It’s often this last group that surprises us- after coming with us from A to B, they’re then nowhere to be seen as we head from B to C. One argument, and they sheer off, hardly ever to be seen again. This message will explain everything.

The Next You – Dave Gilpin LIVE at Calvary Church

(Recorded at Your Best Life Conference on the Sunshine Coast, Australia)

Stop shrinking back to the places you’ve outgrown. It’s scary, but the Next You is being created and it’s vital that you don’t look backwards. The world isn’t rejecting you, God is reserving you for a bigger future- the Next Season of your life.  Don’t try and find yourself, start to define yourself according to His will and not ‘their’ wishes. There’s a miracle at work right now in your life! 

Secret Stories: when truth be told

The Rainbow: Mephibosheth – Dave Gilpin

Favour Ain’t Fair. 

This is part 2 of the Rainbow series. When Abraham was asked to cut 3 animals in half and place the halves opposite each other, he was setting up a mysterious covenant where the halves on the left would represent himself and the halves on the right would represent God himself. This was a precursor for Jesus who also represented both us and God in his broken body.  But between both incidents was a man called Mephibosheth, who’s life was changed forever by another distant covenant.

Mountain Men – Dave Gilpin

A man without a mountain is only half a man. Every man was born for near misses, desperate challenges and traversing trouble. And when he does it for the protection and provision of others that man becomes a brother, a husband, a father. The bible tells us, ‘How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of him who brings good news…’ A man’s feet can tell you everything about the man. This podcast reveals all. A message from our Senior Pastor Dave Gilpin, preached live at Hope City Church in Sheffield then watched almost live in York.

The Rainbow – Dave Gilpin

Signs from Heaven to Earth

The question why do bad things happen to good people comes from an over exaggeration of our own goodness. We’ve placed ourselves miles too high on the Scale of Good. You know you better than anyone so it’s not a surprise to know that you’re not really that good at all. And if you are, it’s grace at work in you. From the Rainbow to the Cross there’s a covenant supplying you with goodness and mercy that’s totally disproportionate to the altar you find yourself upon. If you look to the covenant and not yourself you’ll find so much of God your life will never be the same.

Dave Gilpin – Middle Child Syndrome

When you’re sandwiched between the old and the brand new, MCS comes knocking. It happens to Pop Stars, the middle aged, the flash guitarist when a flasher guitarist enters the room as well as the older brother when the younger brother comes along. Shunted, displaced, shelved and ignored- emotions run both high and deep. To not understand that God is in the midst preparing you for your next big thing is to be left despising your world and escaping to another. This podcast ,recorded at C3 Powerhouse Australia will help you navigate your future.

The Real You (Please Stand Up) – Dave Gilpin

What if the You that God knows is the you you’ve never truly met- the New You, the Real You, the Higher You? To have a revelation that you’re a part of the oldest aristocracy in the world and the oldest dynasty is the beginning of God revealing who you really are. You’re not you when you’re feeling small and anxious, falling for temptation and desire. You’re much bigger, stronger and immovable than you think!
The God of Reduction
This leadership message, shared at Lead Summit in England by Dave Gilpin, looks at the ‘peril’ of everything that moves- it has to lose something to gain something. For Abraham he ‘lost’ his son, for Gideon he lost almost all his men, for Joseph he lost his reputation. You may be part of a reduction right now… and it could possibly be an absolute move of God. It could be a pulling back in the bow before a propelling of the arrow to slice through the winds to hit the mark of destiny. This message will restore your confidence that God is on the move.

Fake Faith – Let’s Get Real – Dave Gilpin

The slipstream of faith is a deadly place. You can tuck in under someone else’s breakthroughs and have a measure of success and yet be unaware that somehow you’ve run out of your own faith. You can be full of hope that God will come through for you, yet He doesn’t because you’ve mistaken hope for faith. You’re faith is fake faith. When God gives you real faith it’s always original- it can’t be borrowed, imparted, on loan or leased. It’s instantly yours. And it’s this kind of faith that not only saves, it’s the key to all of the breakthroughs you’re about to have in the future of your life. Listen well.

Trust Issues – Dave Gilpin

All of us have trust issues. Failure to address them always leads to cynicism, isolation and a small life. This message begins with describing an overcoming spirit that’s available to us through Christ, then encourages us to step out of our distrust back into trust, through a new spirit of courage. This simple step of courage will create a big step towards the amazing future God has planned for you.

Don’t Teach a Fish to Climb Trees – How to not lose your confidence – Dave Gilpin

50% of all of your weaknesses don’t exist. They’re fictional. We’ve mistaken non-strengths for weaknesses. Strengthen your non-strengths and the best you’ll get is average. Strengthen your strengths and you’ll find your genius. The other 50% are reversible. God places His strengths on the fault lines of your weaknesses. This message will set you free from your three greatest enemies- condemnation, accusation and perfection.

Fabulous Faith – Dave Gilpin

You don’t need breakthrough. You don’t need finance. You don’t need healing. What you need is the key that opens the door to breakthrough. Faith is that solitary key. There is no other key.  It has no feels. It has no emotion. It sees nothing in the natural. Yet it precedes everything. When you get it, it opens doors to things you’ve never experienced ever before in your life. This is about how to get it, how to use it and how to prize it.

Up Close and Personal – Dave Gilpin

Hope City Church is a multi-generational, multi-site and multi-national church full of creativity, diversity and authenticity. And that’s a challenge. Senior Pastor Dave Gilpin apologises to different groups within the church whom he feels have been let down across the years including middle-aged men, the black community and those who find themselves currently on the bench. It’s both honest and raw.

Cry Me A River Part Deux – Dave Gilpin

Psalm 46 states, ‘There is a river that makes glad the City of God.’ The river of God in your life is unstoppable. It will never run out and will transport you into all God has for you. But the river does something else-  it carries stuff away. You can’t just dump your junk on the river bank and expect to remain in the clear waters of destiny. Every river has a bridge and there comes a time where everything needs to become ‘water under the bridge’. In this message, Dave Gilpin gives us 7 keys to letting go and allowing our ‘junk’ to go under the bridge. It’s amazing what can happen when you do.
