Mission of God online class + discussion

Long before we choose service times, style of worship, or kids’ curriculum, we must first examine the fundamental questions of why we do church. Join us as we explore together the role we play in what God is doing in the world, how we consider our audience when communicating the Gospel, the role of the Holy Spirit in the transformation of lives and communities, and how our understanding of all these things can (and should) impact the methodology of our local church context. This class is offered in partnership with Foursquare Multiply and is designed for pastors and leaders considering church planting, replanting, or revitalizing a church, or helping a congregation gain a vision for reaching their community for Christ.

Facilitated by Pastors: Keith + Sheri Cookson, Marcus + Brenda Rabb, Trevor Loya, Molly DuQue
