A journey through the Epistle of 1 Thessalonians. We see how God builds His church despite persecution, difficulty and brokenness in the context of the thriving, prominent city of Thessalonica. After having to leave the fledging Church in Thessalonica, the Apostle Paul sends Timothy to report on the growth and survival of the church. On Timothy's return, Paul is overjoyed to find that the Spirit of God has renewed, protected and empowered the church despite being left leaderless under mass persecution. In this series we will see the faithfulness and sovereignty of God despite persecution, hardships and all kinds of evil.
