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

KC Underground, a tribute to the underground nature of the Church throughout history, describes themselves as an innovative yet ancient form of church pursuing Jesus’ mission in Kansas City. 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.

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.

Identifying and Training Church Planters with Steve Pike

Right person, right place, and right support in God's timing. This has been our strategy for planting churches through the Kairos Network. Over the years I have found that often the support and the place are easier to identify than the person. Churches planters don't grow on trees!

Steve Pike joined us to take a look at how we identify and train church planters. He shares from his years of experience as the founder of the Church Multiplication Network and the Urban Islands Project. Steve will share what he has learned about identifying and training church planters from the thousands of churches he has seen launched across the country.

Virtual Discipleship in an Age without Mass Gatherings

Tangible Tools for Discipleship with Zach Zehnder, Greg Finke, and Steve Pike

How can we move from an understanding of the importance of discipleship to an ability to make disciples? In this follow up webinar we are going to dig into some tangible tools and processes people use for discipleship. Our goal is to help you move past the theory of discipleship and help you learn how to develop your own discipleship process.

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

The Story of LakePointe is the story 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. Patricks Day Parade. They were the only church present at the event.

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