Church Planting/Revitalization

  • Planting Churches in Small Towns with Will Basham – Church planting is important to the mission of God in the Midwest, but we must grasp the fact that most of the population lives in small towns. Planting a church in a small town presents its own set of challenges and we’ll examine how a new church can not only transform a small town but impact an entire region with the gospel. Watch video
  • Rethinking bivocational church planting with Brad Brisco – As attendance declines and existing churches close, every major denomination is focusing more resources towards starting new congregations. Bivocational church planting provides a more desirable way to plant a new church, rather than being based on limited funds. Learn the philosophy behind creating a bivocational pipeline of planters and discover how to best resource and send them into Kingdom activity. Watch video

Ministry changes have eternal consequences. We must learn to lead them well. Part 1, Part 2, Part 3

  • Redeeming Christianity: Evangelism in an anti-everything world with Josh Whetstine – Why do we talk so much about evangelism when most people aren’t engaged in it?
