THERE ARE DIFFERENT WAYS TO HAVE CHURCH.
THERE IS ONLY ONE GOSPEL.
Black or White, Presbyterian or Baptist, Reformed or Charismatic we are all under the banner of Jesus Christ and as leaders and pastors in this great city we call Miami we all have a desire to see God transform lives.
Join us in this conversation as expert & author, Pastor Ed Stetzer helps us think about what a wholistic Gospel Movement will look like here in Miami.
Session #1 - Knowing, Loving, and Engaging Your City
You Have Been Called. Our City Matters. The Gospel Is The Answer.
Session #2- The Character of Christ Centered Leaders
Why do some pastors and leaders in ministry fail and why do some succeed. There are various factors but in this session we will look at some statistics on how pastors are doing and guardrails for them to last long term. Miami is a hard place to do ministry.
Session #3 - Gospel Movement in the Harvest
Churches all across this nation are failing and ultimately closing their doors. How can we, here in Miami succeed at Reapig A Harvest? Long term ministry must be driven by ministry that engages and reaches those who do not know Christ.
Session #4 - The Ten Marks of Movement Christianity in a City.
Are you reaching the number of people you want to reach in your church? Probably not. There is always more people to reach with the good news of the Gospel. In this session we will look at what a Gospel Movement will look like in Miami and beyond.
