It’s been said that the church is to be judged not by its seating capacity but by its sending capacity. This was Jesus’s focus when telling his followers that they would do even “greater” works than he did. In this seminar, learn to inspire and equip your church to reach the city, engage the poor, and plant churches both domestically and internationally. Being “sent” is for every disciple of Jesus—including the business people of our churches. Currently, one out of every twenty Summit Church members lives on the international mission field on a church planting team. How can you cultivate a sending culture in your church?
J.D. Greear is the pastor of The Summit Church in Durham, North Carolina. You can find him on Twitter @jdgreear.
