I am working on a seminar I will be doing on at the Great Lakes District Conference of the Evangelical Free Church. I’ve been asked to do a seminar on taking the gospel into our neighborhoods. I thrill to this type of seminar, because …
- I know that the people who show up really want to make a difference and
- because getting the gospel out beyond the four walls of our church facilities is one of the crying needs of our time.
Imagine how thrilled I was when I ran across this video and its corresponding website! Watch it. Be inspired. Pray for your own town and neighborhood and then pray for me and the seminar participants that will be with me on October 9th when I teach the seminar at the Wheaton Evangelical Free Church in Wheaton, IL.
