Forty Days of Prayer with Highpoint

By Intern

Sept. 5, 2016

Friday, August 26th, marked the launch of Highpoint’s brand new teaching series, 40 Days of Prayer. According to Pastor Ron Zappia, “Prayer is the nerve that moves the mighty hand of God.” This powerful statement is at the core of Pastor Ron’s impassioned call to action for the church to get on their knees and call out to Lord. In a world increasingly overcome with turmoil, this series urges those who follow Christ to make prayer the first line of defense against the attacks of the enemy in our own life and the lives of others. Listeners are challenged to stand together and commit to taking this journey of faith, praying intentionally for 40 days. This includes doubling the usual amount of time spent in ... Read More

Dad: “Pull yourself up by your bootstraps, boy!” Mom: “Bloom where you are planted, sweetie.” Resentful younger sibling: “Pick on someone your own size!” We hear these common cultural tidbits of advice countless times throughout the years…but how often do we listen to God’s 2 cents concerning our lives? Tomorrow, don’t miss the kickoff of Life Lessons, Pastor Ron Zappia’s new series airing through August 25 on Highpoint. Diving into the story of Jonah, Ron uncovers life lessons that last.

Ask Pastor Mike: How to Have Victory Over Sin

By Intern

July 20, 2016

Many of us understand the frustration of a reoccurring problem in our lives. From seasonal fruit fly infestations to the tricky toilet that just won’t stay fixed, the only thing worse than dealing with a setback, is dealing with the same setback. As Christians, we know this feeling all too well when it comes to the subject of reoccurring sin. Satan doesn’t have to introduce some far-fetched, fantasy struggle into our lives. He often tempts us with the same thoughts and triggers we’ve either wrestled with in the past or continue to contest on a regular basis. For this reason, Pastor Mike Fabarez of Focal Point answers a question that is heavy on the hearts of men and women from every stage of life: How ... Read More

We are a grieving nation. This month’s latest spew of tragedies has U.S. Americans filled with fear for the future every time we refresh our Facebook feeds.

James MacDonald’s Annual Listener’s Choice Series has a reassuring word of encouragement for everyone this July. This year’s compilation of ALL-STAR Walk in the Word messages will leave listeners with strategies to ‘get out of their own ... Read More

Highpoint Spreads the Love of Christ Here, There and Everywhere

Chicago is a record breaking city. Staggering skylines, snow-white winters, and delicious deep-dish pizza make this a metropolis adored by many. But not all of its claims to fame are admirable. Chicago is also infamously known for its crime, poverty and killings. The Chicago Tribune reports there have been 2,026 shooting victims in the city of Chicago so far this year. Someone is shot every 3 hours in Chicago. Pastor Ron Zappia of Highpoint Ministries refuses to sit on the suburban sidelines. This summer, his multi-site church, Harvest, is partnering with various urban churches and ministries to inspire healing in the heart of a broken city. Between last Saturday’s Chicago Regional Worship Summit featuring Harvest-Worship and the new initiative to “adopt-a-block” on the south side ... Read More
