The Art and Science of Planting New Churches for a New World.

In a culture that is rapidly moving toward a post-Christian reality the challenges of today aren't easily met with the 20th century church planting models. In a time when the ministry challenges of the future can feel insurmountable, sometimes the best answers are found in rediscovering the apostolic story. As Ed Stezer said, "Church planting must recapture both the science and the art of planting.

This ended up being a 2 for 1 webinar experience.  In the first half of this webinar Matt Peeples and Dylan Dodson share their own church planting experiences and what they have learned along the way.   Peyton Jones jumps in at 40:30 mark and shares some keep insights on planting in the 21st century, discipleship, and how to integrate the APEST into our ministry flow.

Creating a High Impact Internship Experience with Heath Lewis, Jacob Youmans, Laura Ross, & Madison Patrow

Many people grab an intern because they are young, excited and if we are being honest they are cheap labor.  We create an internship program to fill a need in our ministry, or see what a new position would be like if we eventually hired a full time person. The problem is all of these reasons center on us, but what about the intern?

What most church leaders don't realize is the difference a disastrous internship experience and a great internship experience is where we put our focus.  If we focus all our attention on what the intern can do for our ministry we will get less from the internship and so will the intern.  If we focus on the development of the intern, we will create a more powerful internship experience for the intern and in turn will experience more impact in the ministry.

Join us on Thursday Sept 29 at 1:00pm est as we have a conversation with Jacob Youmans, Laura Ross, Heath Lewis, and Madison Patrow about what they have seen create truly great internship experiences.
