Microchurches: Learning from the KC Underground Story with Brian Johnson & Rob Wegner

KC Underground describes themselves as an innovative yet ancient form of church pursuing Jesus’ mission in Kansas City. They exist to inspire, engage, connect, equip and empower ordinary people to flourish. Their goal is simple: to create a network of reproducing disciples, leaders, micro-churches, and congregations that will saturate Kansas City with the good news, justice and beauty. The name is a tribute to the underground church of history, characterized by sacrificial faith in the face of danger, oppression, and even death.

In this webinar we talk to Rob Wegner and Brian Johnson to hear more of KC Undergrounds story and explore a different model for being the Church in the 21st Century.

Our goal is to help you move past the theory of discipleship and help you learn how to develop your own discipleship process.

Spiritual Care in a time of Social Distancing with Dr. Bruce Hartung, Dr. Rick Marrs, and Pastor Jeff Cloeter

In times of crisis, people look to the church and the leaders within the church to guide them through difficult times. But how can the church be present when loving your neighbor means staying away from your neighbor? In a time of social distancing, how can we deliver the spiritual care people are looking for while still respecting our communities and doing our part to flatten the curve?

Preaching in a time of Livestream Only with Matt Popovits and Chris Paavola

Overnight the task of preaching changed radically. We went from preaching to live congregation to preaching to a livestream camera. The only thing that hasn't changed is the importance of preaching the gospel. But the age we are preaching in is nothing most preachers prepared for. So how does the task of preaching change when you when the congregation is on the other side of a livestream camera?

Impactful Ideas for a Covid-19 Easter with Matt Popovits, Chris Paavola, Seth Hinz, and Ben Griffin

We are living in a new reality where the church can't gather. That new reality took place around the biggest worship service of the year, Easter! So how can we as a church celebrate the reality of the resurrection with people during a time when that message is desperately needed?! Just because our usual methods won't work, doesn't mean there are no good options.

Join us for a panel discussion with some great outside the box church leaders as we discuss how we can make this a great Easter experience for those in and out of the church, even though they can't gather in the church.

Becoming a Church that Reaches the Hard to Reach with Greg Bearss

The Story of LakePointe is one of a church that has taken the Gospel to dark and hard to reach places. Before the church even launched, their first event was building a float in the St. Patrick's Day Parade. They were the only church present at the event.

Since then they have become a church with a vibrant recovery ministry, a women's home that helps women transitioning out of rehab and prison, a massive stomp out hunger campaign, and they've baptized around 1,000 people along the way. Join us as founding/lead pastor Greg Bearss shares the keys to being a church that goes to the hard to reach people in the hard to reach places.
