Seeking God's Face and Seeing God Work
Mark Becton | Senior Pastor, Grove Avenue Baptist Church, Richmond, Virginia
Weaving biblical truths with inspiring historical and current accounts of God’s activity. You will be reminded that we are merely responsible for faithfulness. God is the one who produces the fruit…His way, in His timing, for His glory. This is for the pastor, drained, being faithful without seeing fruit; and for the layman weary of praying for revival with no signs of turning. It’s a fresh reminder, when we seek God’s face we see His fruit.
Learning and Living out the Gospel of Jesus Christ
Rodney Keith | Senior Pastor, Gardenview Baptist Church, Jacksonville, FL
Soul-winning is not the job of the pastor. It is not the job of the church staff. It is not the job of the deacons or elders. Soul-winning is the job for every born-again believer of Jesus Christ. Many Christians view soul-winning as a daunting, seemingly impossible task, when it is actually the most rewarding thing a child of God will do.
We were put here by God, to share His salvation with our lost and dying world. If you won’t share Him, who will? In this session, Dr. Keith will equip you with the knowledge and tools that will help you accomplish the Great Commission in your own mission field. You can win your world to Jesus Christ. Come see how very simple it is to share the most important new of all.
