MAIN SESSION 1: God’s Lost Cause
Evangelism has become a taboo word and many Christians don’t know how to effectively share the gospel and reach the lost around them. Let’s come together and remember Jesus’ Luke 19:10 mission: to seek and save the lost. Let’s re-prioritize evangelism and build churches with cultures, values, narratives, and behaviors of the gospel firmly in place. God remains committed to the Lost Cause. We are committed to the Lost Cause.
Day / Time: Tuesday, 12:30pm
