The Perfect/Broken Diagram: Setting the Table for the GospelCam Caughlan, 11/6/18We live in a culture that increasingly moves away from viewing the gospel as being relevant to the well-being of society. And as the nations come to our streets as our neighbors, the religious notions they bring further dilute the gospel's potency. HOW do we reach our neighbors, co-workers, and family members that are affected by these cultural shifts? There's a powerful discussion tool that establishes the common ground of brokenness with our unbelieving friends, and puts their general worldview side-by-side with the Christian worldview to bridge the understanding gap, and "till the soil" for future productive spiritual discussion. Join this webinar to learn "The Perfect/Broken Diagram", and open the door to fruitful conversations with your neighbors and friends.Link

Differences Between Mentoring and CouchingJeremy Brooks, 6/3/19Jesus said he would build his church. When Jesus gave the disciples their final mission for their role in accomplishing his task, Jesus specified their focus was to "make disciples of all nations”. As we focus on making disciples, there are different ways to do so. This is because we live in a diverse world with a variety of contexts and people. In this webinar, we will focus on a topic that is often confusing: the differences between mentoring and coaching. Both of these types of relationships are biblical and helpful for making disciples. Comparing and contrasting these two kinds of discipleship relationships helps us understand how each uniquely contributes to fulfilling the Great Commission. Link
