Session 1 – Your Church is Too Safe
With reference to his most recent book, Mark will look at the convictions and actions of the early church and its influences. And he will explore how to awaken the church today, calling it to live more faithfully, generously, and dangerously.
12:00 PM Lunch
1:00 PM Session 2 – Spiritual Rhythm
“This was a very different book for me. It's my longest and my most personal. It came out of deep pain (the death of a close friend), and through that an even deeper discovery of Christ's sufficiency for all things and in all things.” In session 2, Mark will look at our heart’s spiritual seasons, how to identify them, and how to steward them wisely.
2:30 PM Closing Worship
