Take it to the Limit – Dave Gilpin

(One More Time)

No one knows their limits because what was your limit yesterday is no longer your limit today! You’ve grown and your limits have too! What God does, however, when you are at your limits of time, patience, strength and talent is extraordinary. This is where the greatest downloads of heaven take place. And this is where God wants you to live out your life. He’s so committed to it, He’ll regularly leave little Post It note reminders to nudge you back into place. Why? Cause He’s the download King.

Step Maker – Dave Gilpin

A lot of us think that there’s a giant leap of faith that we have to undertake in order to follow God through the wilderness and into our own personal Canaan flowing with milk and honey. Yet no one has ever undertaken a leap of faith either within the Bible or without. The Bible never mentions leaps- only steps. It’s the steps of faith that lead to the vaults of heaven. God is your step maker. He makes steps- good steps that eventually lead to new levels of blessing and influence. Steps belong to man. Success belongs to God.

Makes Me Wanna Pray – Dave Gilpin

Most prayers have a lot to do with making us better, more holy and more acceptable to God. They’re about all we can do for God. Yet the Bible declares we love him BECAUSE He first loved us. To ask God to firstly show you His glory is not ancillary but mandatory to rekindling our love affair with heaven and then swimming the deepest oceans because of it. For many, it’s the more excellent prayer.

Rage Against Beige – Dave Gilpin

Pastor Dave Gilpin has a theory that many believers were more ‘exciting’ before they believed than after they believed! Before they were rescued by Christ, they spent their weekends painting the town red. Now they spend their weekends painting the church beige! 

Why is that? Believers should be the most passionate, creative and adventurous people on the planet? Listen to his keynote message to find out.

Planet Shaker – Dave Gilpin

What to do when the planet shakes. 

Recently while in New Zealand, Pastor Dave Gilpin celebrated his 60th birthday by going on the world’s largest catapult. The scariest time, he says, was not the beginning nor the end, but the transition time when his feet left the ground.

Whenever our lives have changed for good there’s always  been a shaking- a removing of the old to make way for the coming of the new. No one has ever enjoyed it but it’s catapulted them into a higher life. 

Our world right now is undergoing a shaking like never before. Uncertainty has replaced certainty in every part of life. 

It could also be a ‘transition time’ that could lead to the greatest awakening of faith the world has ever seen.

Going Back is Not Going Backwards – Dave Gilpin

Sometimes you’ve got to go back in order to go forwards. Yet we are all a little scared of going back for fear of going backwards. No one wants to do that. Going back, however, is not the same as going backwards. It’s preparing you for going forwards. God told Elijah to go back the way he came. He wanted him to get back to his cutting edge. He wanted him to retrace his steps and go back to the place he ran from from through intense fear and doubt. Press play to receive a fresh boost of faith in your life with this message from Pastor Dave Gilpin.

Going Back Is Not Going Backwards – Dave Gilpin

“Let everything we do come out of the freshness of love, miracles come from first love.” Going Back Is Not Going Backwards is a brilliant and inspiring message from Ps Dave Gilpin preached live at our Hope City Leeds Sunday service. This message has the potential to stop fear of the future and allows God to call us back into love. Ps Dave Gilpin encourages us to get back on the apostolic train, to get back to living by faith and not by feelings.

Upsizing – Dave Gilpin

What to Do After the Storms are Gone

The place where you live and breathe is too small for you. It fitted yesterday, but it doesn’t fit your future. The only way out is to upsize. The prophet said to the woman about to die, go into your neighbours households and ask for pots. God was about to do a miracle of multiplication. He told her, ‘don’t ask for just a few’.  At the moment you are limiting what God wants to do by not adjusting your attitude to the faith you’ve fought to cling onto. This message will take you through the top 5 decisions of an upsizer. Listen carefully. Preached live by Senior Pastor Dave Gilpin at Hope City Sheffield, then watched *almost* live at Hope City York.

Hope City is going back. You need to go back. Something’s missing that needs collecting. This message includes the revamp of our plans for the ‘Waverley project’. If you’ve invested into it, it’s a must listen.

Your Mind, Your Will, Your Future – Dave Gilpin

Your future may already have been marked out by a generous, all conquering God but it only unfolds as we are ‘transformed by the renewing of your mind’. It’s not just what you believe that counts but what you think about what you believe. And to change that takes the strengthen of your will. Dave Gilpin places it in centre stage as he wages war on victimhood and releases you into the next stage of your destiny.

Taking Back Control – Dave Gilpin

Losing control and letting God take control is a signature of the Christian life. Living under the control of people is not. 

Taking back control is about the power to choose who you want to be, even when you can’t do all you want to do. 

Do that and it’s amazing what God can then do. Listen carefully!

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. God rescued both Kerry and Hassan and took them on a journey of recovery that eventually led them to each other and to fall in love. Dave Gilpin interviews them to to discover more.

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 – Dave Gilpin

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

Dave and Jenny Gilpin, our Senior Pastors, share intimate secrets about their marriage, their disappointments, their devotional life, their tension points and their now Word from God. This is how you’ve never heard them before. Stuart Otten from ‘About Face’ is the interviewer.

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.
