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.

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.

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.
