Empowered: Moving with The Spirit
The single command that Jesus gave his followers before igniting a movement was “Do not leave Jerusalem, but wait for the gift my Father promised…” He was telling them to wait for and then move with the Spirit. In 2022, we’ll discover a growing awareness of the Spirit’s work and leadership while also realizing that we will always be more effective if we move with the Holy Spirit.

Digital Discipleship: Equipping Families, Resourcing Groups & Developing Leaders – Hosted by RightNow Media
As a pastor, do you feel overwhelmed because you only have so much time to help those in your church? Or do you feel like you’re losing your people to the culture and want to find ways to help each person individually with resources that meet them where they are in their faith? In today’s world, the church has a limited amount of time to (hopefully) make a life-changing impact to each person on Sunday—but what if there was an option to find more time to do the ministry you were called to AND provide personalized resources for every person in your congregation to help equip and disciple them beyond Sunday
We want to show you how you can use digital discipleship tools to equip families, resource small groups, and develop leaders and volunteers. Join us for this Equipping Lab to see digital discipleship in action and get your questions answered about how to equip everyone in your church every day of the week.
