Drawn from DA Horton's Book, Intensional: Kingdom Ethnicity in a Divided World. When it comes to the ethnic divisions in our world, we speak often of seeking racial reconciliation. But at no point have all the different ethnicities on Earth been reconciled. Animosity, distrust, and hostility among people from various ethnicities have always existed in American history. Even in the church, we have often built walls―ethnic segregation, classism, sexism, and theological tribes―to divide God’s people from each other. But it shouldn’t be this way. God’s people are the only people on earth who have experienced true reconciliation.
Pastor D. A. Horton offers vision and practical guidance for Christians longing to embrace our Kingdom ethnicity, combating the hatred in our culture with the hope of Jesus Christ.
Introduction to the Awaken Coalition, a one-year coaching cohort program focused on leadership that results in healthier and revitalized churches.
There are key steps to revitalization that moves a local church from flatline to flourish. No matter the size of church or community you are in, these steps will become the lifeline to taking your church on a trajectory of renewal for kingdom impact.
There is a crisis where churches continue to close their doors at an alarming rate. This talk advances the notion that the best place to start reversing this trend, is to absorb the astonishing and timeless picture of the resurrected and glorified Christ moving around the seven churches in the book of Revelation. The beginning chapters of Revelation inform us that Christ is actively concerned with the health and reformation of his churches. Christ’s words of encouragement and rebuke to these churches provide a set of prescriptions relevant for today’s times.
What Walking Through Grand Canyon Taught Me About Leading A Church Through Crisis.
Church revitalization is as relevant as ever in a Covid-19 and post Covid-19 environment. God's glory must compel us to replant the dying churches that abound in North America. Pastor Mark Clifton presents four different broad pathways for churches to start afresh.
Church revitalization is always a challenge. You are leading people into discomfort. People will complain. Some will leave the church. You will be the target of criticism. Doubting yourself is an inevitable part of the process. Leaders do not have the luxury of hitting pause while they deal with doubt. This session will help you understand how to lead through the doubt.
Church revitalization takes more then a passionate pastor. The workshop will examine 2 Timothy 2 and the kinds of leaders needed to revitalize churches.
A look at Ephesians 4, which examines God’s intent for church leaders to create a culture of leadership multiplication. We will consider cultural barriers that prevent this from happening, and we will consider biblical models to apply this at our church. We will see how this is a key to making disciples.
Churches need to continue to find ways to engage the communities in which they serve.
As amplified in DA Horton's published book, G.O.S.P.E.L., Christian themes and concepts are prevalent among the listeners of Christian hip hop, but they often come with little theological depth beyond a 3-minute rhyme. To fill this critical gap of understanding, Pastor D. A. Horton (aka hip-hop artist Azriel) present the Gospel in a modern, sound and compelling manner. Even professing believers can fail to fully grasp the gospel in its undiluted, unmistakable and unstoppable form.
Take the Jesus Challenge and change how you view God, how you view people, and how you live. Say ‘NO’ to a boring life. Say ‘YES’ to a faith that matters.
