CROSSROADS exists to be a church that focuses on reaching the unchurched believers. It is not enough simply to be a gathering place for persons exploring Christianity. As God works in the lives of believers, at some point in their faith journey they will seek to move from participating in events at CROSSROADS to becoming mature believers that follow God everyday. The TEAM Partnership class helps define spiritual markers in the process of moving people on the road of life in the direction of faith.

GET THEIR NAME TRAINING
October 12
1:30 pm – 4:30 pm
Screen Shot 2014-01-02 at 3.58.14 PM
Many churches today are targeting the wrong people with their evangelism efforts. They are operating a model that no longer works because it is too passive, too polite, and too focused in the wrong direction. This workshop (based on a book of the same name) will uncover the ways most churches unwittingly misdirect their reach into the community and teach, in practical terms, how to change the habits of leaders and congregations so that invitation is natural, constant, systemic, genuine, and easy. Participants will learn how to share their faith in a way that is effective, biblical, and transformational.
 
WHO: Anyone
WHERE: Inver Grove Heights Campus
WHEN: October 12. 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm
