6 Foundational Habits & Practices of Jesus
“Whoever says he abides in him ought to walk in the same way in which he walked” (1 John 2:6 ESV). If we are to obey this command in 1 John, we need to examine the earthly life of Jesus and discover what exactly were His priorities, how did He “walk”.  In this breakout we will identify 6 foundational habits and practices that are seen in Jesus’ life. We will discuss how they can be applied to our lives to help us make and multiply disciples like Jesus.

How the Church Grows through Evangelism and Discipleship
We have heard people say that anything that is alive will grow. Yet recent studies show that many churches are struggling to increase their weekly attendance. We need to ask, “Is the body of Christ part of that problem?” In this session, we will examine 2 important texts: Matthew 28:16-20 and Mark 16:14-18; comparing Christ’s commission to the Church with how we actually function. We will look at strategies to help us remove barriers to become, once again, obedient, growing, and thriving churches.
