Are you ready for a year of living out the heart of the Gospel – with your congregation?
John Wimber, the founder of the Vineyard Movement, once said, “Faith is spelled R-I-S-K.” As we follow the trajectory of Scripture and the life of Jesus and the disciples, we see a thread of humble obedience and risk-taking that leads to miracles and Kingdom breakthrough.
There is no greater adventure than embracing the greatness of the Gospel, and taking risks with Jesus in seeing His Kingdom come in our towns and cities. So we are excited to announce that our resourcing theme for 2020 is A Gospel Of Risk: Saying Yes To The Spirit.
We are announcing six powerful new resources (coming out throughout 2020) to serve you and your church with resources that can take you through the entire year! Some are church-wide campaigns, and others are for personal spiritual growth. All of these new resources will give you a whole year of options to engage with the Holy Spirit – taking risks with Jesus all along the way.
Here is our line up, and the first will come out late January 2020! [Download the PDF version of post]
Here is the Risk Series Planner to help you plan 2020! [Download the Risk Series Planner]
