High Impact Residency Program Continues with Second Webinar Session

By Bener Agtarap

Hirp article

As society and culture continuously evolve in the United States and other parts of the world, our efforts to start new churches call for a fresh approach in developing new churches or new faith communities. Matt Temple, Associate Director for Church Development of North Texas Annual Conference, responding to the question, “Why Start a New Church?” says, "Human culture is a living, breathing, evolving organism, and church planting is a way for the church to evolve with culture to join God in God's mission and meaningfully embody the gospel in our day and in our way." In church planting, we are inviting God's people to follow Jesus as his disciples to participate in the transformative work of the gospel grounded in the redeeming and welcoming love of God.

Join us for our second webinar session on May 11, 2021. With Matt Temple and Bener Agtarap facilitating the training, we will look briefly at The United Methodist Church’s legacy and how church planting fits into that narrative. From there, we will examine our cultural moment in a post-colonial world a little more closely and what that means for how we plant churches in a way that meets our cultural moment with grace and meaning. Finally, we will examine three primary motivations for planting and how our motivation impacts our method, and we will discuss how we measure to know we are successful.

Available FREE and open to both clergy and laity.
