Telling a Better Story - Talking About God in a Skeptical Age

In a polarized world it is hard to turn around without offending someone! The Gospel story is offensive, however, it is also beautiful. How can we present the Greatest Story ever told in a way that people are drawn to its beauty and they are offended by the right things? That is what we will attempt to answer in this session.

Keeping an evangelistic focus

You believe that God’s Word can speak to those who don’t know Him, yet you long to experience it in your own group. Join us as we share together the stories of transformation and consider how we can regain a heart for the lost in our Bible Study groups, to reach those who are far from God.

What’s Next?

What do you do when someone in Coffee Break develops a strong interest to keep growing in their faith? What if someone who wasn’t a believer becomes a believer and you’re their leader? Where do you begin in discipling someone who wants to follow Jesus Christ? 222Disciple is what’s next! Build on the relationship you’ve already established through Coffee Break and learn the gospel with them. Not only will you help make them a disciple of Jesus Christ—you will equip them to make disciples of others!! Join Brian Bosscher and Tina Orrega to learn how you can take advantage of this highly effective process.
